My Window

I’ve never been more drawn to a window than this one in my kitchen.

“I feel that it is healthier to look out at the world through a window than through a mirror. Otherwise, all you see is yourself and whatever is behind you.” -Bill Withers

Happy Fathers Day

Happy Father’s Day everyone and especially to my awesome dad and husband. 

From the minute my dad adopted me at one month old (I guess back in the day you had to wait so many weeks, like a puppy), he excelled at loving and caring for me. 

From the minute my husband took on the role of a bonus dad to my kids, he excelled at loving and caring for them.

Cheers to the good guys!

Cosby Corruption Mistrial 

Cosby mistrial, really? 

 I know that most of my post are either goofy or heartfelt but today, I’m angry.  

Do not be surprised when victims and their families start taking the law into their own hands against these sexual predators, perverts and sicko’s.

Okay, I’m done. Not really. My poor husband is going to have to listen to me rant for most of the weekend.

Change is Good

My husband thrives on change and progress and he’s super intense, aggressive and motivated. It’s exhausting at times but then I look back on the experiences and the life he’s created (with my help, of course) for us and it’s really hard to legitimately complain.

We make all our big decisions together and we balance each other out (otherwise, we’d be living in Zimbabwe).  

He pushes me outside my comfort zone. I push back. He bribes me with fabulous gifts and prizes and in the end, I sincerely thank him for making my life richer.  

Take chances.  

If it doesn’t work, it’s okay. There’s always plan B.  

No regrets.

My First Born

Running across so many great memories while unpacking.In September this picture will be 31 years old and so will the beautiful baby in the fancy bonnet.

This is the day we brought her home but first we had to stop off at my parents house in the neighborhood I grew up in. 

I’d guess there were no less than 10-15 people to welcome her into the world and pass her around like an Italian bread basket.

These people (you know who you are) in one way or another, helped us raise her. It really does take a village and it makes my heart happy that so many people loved/love her.

When I messaged her this picture she was drinking coffee and waiting on the repair guy.

Wait. What? Coffee? House stuff? Just yesterday she was brand spanking new.

I have to go now. My allergies seem to be acting up.
