The Winds of Change.

The winds of change are blowing in...
Can you feel them?
Bringing with them Springtime and 
new beginnings and new adventures.

What will spring bring to me?
Many of my favorite things...
Blooming Tulips.  Good Books.  Birthday Cake.  
Laughter.  Sunsets.  Family.  Friends.
Blue Skies.  Sunshine.  Cardigans.  Flip-Flops.
Sister Talks.  Lovely Movies.  Goals Accomplished.
Photographs of Beautiful Places. 
Evening Walks.  Romance.  Painting my Toenails.
Good News.  Surprises.  A Southern Get-Away.

I'm getting excited for Spring... How about you?

It's Friday - I'm in Love!

It's Friday!
And already its been a good day.
I had lunch with 2 darling friends.  One of my favorite things to do!
And I get to have a date with Superman tonight!
And he planned it all.
And not only did he plan our date tonight... 
he also planned a very lovely day for us tomorrow in SLC.
He must be missing his wifey - all this work and no play.
I have missed him too and can't wait spend the weekend with my BEST FRIEND.
I hope you all have a fabulous and romantic weekend!
It's Friday - I'm in Love!

Looking Sharp as a Tack.

Here he is.
Lookin' Sharp.
All dressed up for Jr. Prom.
Making his momma proud.
Oh how I love this kid!

2 SUPER COOL kids.

And he has my heart.
Oh yes he does.  :)


I love babies.  I always have.  Especially my babies!
I am so glad I chose motherhood.
I still choose it.  Everyday.  And I love it.
And everyday time ticks.  And I watch them grow.
And my heart is full.
I feel so thankful, so grateful that I have been there.
To see it all.
I know there is still so much more to see - and I feel excited about that.
I watch them sometimes - when they don't know I am - and my mind thinks -
"Where has the time gone?"  And then my heart aches that time passes so quickly.
My oldest went to his Jr. Prom last Saturday.
Let's just say - there were a few tears shed that night - and I couldn't be more proud of him.
So many milestones.  So many more to come.  

I love my role as a wife - mom - home-maker.
I love making my home a clean, lovely, healthy place.
I gave up a lot to be home.
But it's nothing compared with what I have gained.
 And, I know I am blessed for it.
My little soul mates.  My little friends.  My little treasures.

You are the trip I did not take;
You are the pearls I cannot buy;
You are my blue Italian lake;
You are my piece of foreign sky.

What do you get when you combine:
20 pounds of home-made hash-brown potatoes
54 scrambled eggs
4 pounds of bacon
4 pounds of sausage
2 onions
and 2 pounds of cheese?
that will feed 40+ employees!
and a HUGE dutch oven of food that weighs A LOT!
Good thing for Superman strength!
Chad likes to keep his employees as happy and productive 
as can be during this merger at work!
What lucky co-workers!
And yes, me and the kids had some too, YUM!
