Recharge

  This morning was a chance for me to recharge.   I am the type of gal that needs her tribe. I need my people because they give me the good stuff, the happy feelings, they fill my days with life. This morning I got to spend some time with the people that take the…

Everything Looks Different…

Q and I took The Spaceship toward the coast last weekend. We cruised along in our “new to us” car, a/c breezing cool air in our faces. We laughed, just a year ago we made many trips just like this one only we were in his truck (the more reliable of our two cars) with…

Family

Sunday we celebrated new beginnings.  Little Logan,  baby Ashley Rose, and the “new cousin” Quinton.  It was a beautiful day with our family. Couldn’t be happier:)  

Home… where our hearts are.

I would like to think that we have a cozy home. The pile of blankets folded next to the couch cries to be cuddled in. Our lack of kitchen storage would lead you to believe we overflowith with enough food to sustain a Himalayan hiking crew. Our guest bed has the softest sheets I could…

These are the hands…

A week ago I experienced something new, something beautiful. The sun was low in the sky, warm colors set the perfect scene. My husband and I took seats in the back of a small crowd that had gathered to watch our cousin marry her beloved. The pastor and her new soon to be husband stood…

Plans to give you hope and a future

Three weeks have passed since I had a D&C. Though our baby was already an angel, physically loosing our Sweet Pea was hard. We were fortunate to have a wonderful OB, a Navy man with a gentle spirit and a kind smile. He was generous with the narcotics post-op and gave us no cause for…

The Honeymooners, Chapter Uno!

We did it. We got married, went on a great honeymoon, and have are slowly settling into our new life together. It was on the boat ride away from the small rainforest/fishing village we honeymooned in that I told Q, mid-chuckle, “This is going to make a hilarious blog one day.” He nodded vigorously (or…

We moved!

Hotel De Hufferd, now accepting reservations! Just another view… Wish I was there!   So many of our friends and family live so far away and have not been able to see our new house… So here it is! Last weekend, Q and I moved all of our stuff into our new apartment, it was…

Love in all seasons

My last post was about my grandpa’s surgery. In 2-3 hours the surgeon was to remove a mass of muscle from his stomach and repair a hernia that hadn’t healed right after his last surgery. About four hours after they took him back, we got the call and my mom and grandma went to meet…

Birthdaypalooza!

December 7th was a great night. We kicked off birthday celebrations with a rowdy game of hockey (the Ontario Reign won, obviously) and the migrated to Toby Keith’s Bar and Grill for dancing and drinks. My dad and I did some awesome dance moves. By awesome I probably mean that they should have stayed in the…

Home again, home again, jiggity jig.

I have a hard time with surprises. I like to give birthday presents early, if at a possible I open my own Christmas presents as soon as they are under the tree and then rewrap them. I have the overwhelming urge to spill the beans when I know something exciting is going to happen to…
