So, i’ve been blogging MIA.  We had a reallllly busy couple weeks in May, I mean, something every night of the week+weekends+dayjobs+planting+weeding+churchcallings+planning-a-camping-trip+etc. B told me he needed some downtime and not to schedule anything else in June.  I agreed.

Easter. What a beautiful holiday.  Spring is wonderful and the symbols of life after death, spring after winter, the miracle of Christ, and the hope and peace that we will see our loved ones again.  My mom.  B’s Dad.  My grandparents.  My sister.  Those loved ones we’ve lost we will see again, all because of the hope [...]

B’s dad was an amazing man.  Yesterday was his birthday and we celebrated his life.  We go to his grave and let balloons fly up to him, we go to dinner and spend time as a family. I wish that I would have had the chance to know him on this earth.  We would have been really [...]

You know what is awesome? Blue skies and snow capped Utah mountains.  I mean, Jan-Feb were SOOOO gray around these parts.  No sunshine.  No blue sky.  Smog.  Inversion for over 3 weeks.  Snow.  Ice.  Slush.  Snow.  So today, when we were driving to sunday dinner at Mamma J’s (My fun M-I-L) I couldn’t help but [...]

Let’s talk about road trips.  They are so awesome.  I grew up with road trips each summer.  Red and white van.  UT -> PA, all 9 of us.  Some of the most wonderful and happy memories of my childhood spent in that 12 passenger van, on the highway, headed to Nanny & Pop-pop’s house on 53 Potts Avenue, Pennsylvania. [...]

Today is a special day. It is one of my hero’s birthdays.  My sister Miz S! She is someone that you cannot help but love. She is completely pure, innocent and sweet. Her laughter and giggle are the best. She calls me a silly willy nilly. She continually teaches me what life really is about. It’s amazing to watch [...]

I love saturdays.  They are the best.  Our day so far: 9:45 – wake up to that handsome B & his beautiful kind eyes.  (we were really out of it this morning.  No alarms.  Just sleep.  B was up late working in the studio & I can always sleep) 9:47 – decide we are too [...]

This is the sweetest sister of mine and her friend. I adore her.  I spent the morning at her school today, it was wonderful.  She called me with a personal invitation this morning. “C it’s me.  Um, you have to watch me dance and sing at 9:30 at school.  Um, Um, Call me back C.  Bye”. [...]

These two cuties are even more captivating in real life. They joined us for dinner and family hang out time with their equally cool parents. They are busy. They are happy. They don’t stop moving. We couldn’t love them more.
