Last weekend my family celebrated my Aunt Mary’s 100th birthday. Yes, 100 years. She is 98 years older than Sunshine. It’s hard to fathom.  Yet it is so beautiful to think Aunt Mary has lived this long.  She is very important to our immediate family, especially my father.  When I was young, I remember the […]

Those women pinning party boards have nothing on me. Snax wanted a chocolate cake with white frosting.  And sprinkles.  And strawberries.  He was very clear.  Nothing else would do. He also wanted hats.  So he got hats. I do have aspirations that someday I will have a party worthy of Pinterest, (yes, I am one […]

Two of my favorite people share the same birthday: Goose and my brother.  Kind of cool, right?!  My brother is a great guy.  Although we’re five years apart in age, we’ve always been close.  When cell phones used to be expensive, he was a huge part of my bill.  He’s always been there for me, […]

Happy Birthday, Snax!  You are now four years old. Kid, you are hilarious.  You are cuddly.  You are sweet.  You love your sister so much.  You have the cutest voice ever.  You ask me if I’m happy.  You fully live life.  Every second of the day. You light up a room when you come running […]

Here we are again.  Dear boy, this year has passed by so very fast.  Too fast, but we have enjoyed it.  I am not regretting a thing right now.  I am enjoying the gift that you are. And you are a gift.  A real gift to me and our family. I watched you in mass […]

Another year has come and gone.  Squirt, you’re a year older.  One more year until you graduate from high school.  It’s hard to believe that this is where we are right now.  It seems like just yesterday I was taking you to your first day of high school. It’s been a more difficult year, but […]

It’s your day, Dad.  I wish I could say you were enjoying it as you should be, but I know better.  I hope you know how much we all love you.  You’re a great father and your generosity is only half the story.  It’s how much you care and how evident it is that makes […]

So…your card is late.  In making sure that Goose made a card for you, I kind of didn’t get one for myself.  At this rate, can I just bring it to you?! Happy Birthday, sweet girl! I am so proud of all you’ve accomplished.  You have truly become an amazing woman. I was thinking about […]

Being a mother is often times a thankless job.  You’re expected to be “on your game” all the time.  I have come to realize that it’s just not possible to be like that all the time. Which has led to a new appreciation of my mom.  I have no clue how she did it.  She […]
