Oh Hello.

I know, it's been a while.  My Bad.

I think New Years Resolutions should really start on your birthday.  It is then that you truly look back on the year you are leaving and look ahead at what's to come.  I find every year I feel a bit nostalgic,  a bit of mourning at the plans I had for that year that I did not accomplish, and a lot of happiness at what I did accomplish, and what's to come.  I look at this next year and I know the possibilities, the wonderful experiences we have in store for my family of 2 humans and 2 canines...

Maybe this year more than ever as it seems life change is upon us.  You see, we close on this little gem tomorrow.
We move in 10 days.

Happy Birthday to me!

Between painters, contractors, networking business trips, baby showers and wedding showers for friends, Hubbin leaving town on business for a few days, closing on a house, getting all new services set up, and a VERY large event in the next two weeks I'm just not sure I have time for my Birthday this year.... can you postpone such a thing?  Can I just choose to celebrate another time?  There must be something to celebrating your half birthday.... what If I just decide that's my WHOLE birthday.... No one knows how old I really am anyway... maybe I should be secretive about the day as well.

It's a thought.

I could start a revolution....

Except all my friends have been my friends for too long....

and they're smart people... I'm pretty sure they would notice if my Birthday happened twice in one year.  That's like the time I tried to change my name in 4th grade... in the middle of the year.

I'll keep thinking.

In the meantime, It's my Birthday.  I'm turning another year older but it feels no different today than yesterday.  Of course, I was a scheduled C-section baby, so the whole occasion was rather calm to begin with.  I remember stories from my parents of going out the night before to a nice dinner and freaking out the server.  He asked when Mom was due, she told him, "8:00 AM tomorrow morning."  He seemed a bit puzzled at the precise timing.

Maybe that's just my birthday theme? :-) No muss, no fuss.  I kinda like it that way.

Friday's Letters #2

Please ignore the pants drying on the top of the crate:-) 

Dear Daisy, you aren't supposed to exit your crate while I'm at the gym.  But you are very adorable with your Christmas bows on...  Dear Daisy (Again), next time please sit still long enough for me to get a picture of you with your Christmas bows on.... Dear Christmas, now that you're over I'm not sure what to do with all this cold weather...  Dear Bisquik, THANK YOU for making a gluten free product! ...  Dear Cold Weather, I'll just say it.  I don't like you....  Dear Pinterest, thank you for your existence.  Since you've been around I've found some wonderful recipes that I can eat!  You're not bad for decor ideas as well...  Dear 2013, we're going to rock it this year.  I can feel it!  

Happy 2013 Bloggies!

Happy New Year -- Saying goodbye to 2012

I can't quite believe it, but with or without my approval, another year has gone by!

This year brought so many blessings to our family of 2 humans and 2 puppies.  I personally have been able to experience the joy of working from home/being a entrepreneur.  I have been seen wonderful confirmations from God throughout the year that this is what I am meant to be doing as well.  Nothing brings me more joy than knowing I am walking the path God wants for me.  

Of course this is not our only blessing.  Hubbin was promoted this year, he is taking on new responsibilities and a role with some exposure to some really great people.  I am so proud of him and the way he is handling the transition!  

We went on a few trips, did some things we've never done before, got to see some wonderful Family, and spent some great time with friends.

And really... 

What more can you ask for?  

With Love,

That time my Brother got married

Oh how wonderful this night was.  We were all together, dressed up, and celebrating.  Never a better time.  Derek and Kelly have known each other for a while, but when they got engaged they really didn't want to wait!  In fact, they had half a mind to just have the notary in their office "marry" them the monday after they were engaged!!  Silly Derek.  Of course our family would have none of this.  He is the Baby of the step children (still 4 years my senior) and there was no way BB was going not be there when her baby got married!  Kelly is so special and wonderful!  They make a wonderful couple and I was so happy to be able to witness their precious union!

So BB did as she knows best, she planned a wonderful, elegant celebration.  We had a wonderful time. I may or may not have put my planner hat on once or twice to wrangle in the troops for pictures.... but everyone came out ok.  And Hubbin of course got some amazing pictures I remain so proud of him!
