Summer Memories

Keeping Her Cool is having a blog hop with a great twist: favorite summer memories.And it fits right in with what I've been thinking about lately, which is that this month marks five years since I met my husband.  Now, that doesn't sound like much, but we've really been through a lot (not even counting the twins, if that says anything), and I can honestly say he's the best thing to ever come my way.  Ever. I'm incredibly lucky and incredibly in love.Would you like a pictur...more

Seventeen years ago, 2 very young people made solemn vows to each other in the presence of great friends, family, and loving supporters.  Last night Brian and I watched our wedding video.  Tonight, we will steal away for a few hours to have dinner, reflect upon the last 17 years, and dream about the years to come.   Life lesson:  Milestones are important   Why do we celebrate anniversaries, birthdays, and even mark a day of remembrance we call Memorial Day?  It is so important to set aside time for pointed reflec...more

That man of mine.

I really wondered if I would come back here and blog, or if it would be a one time thing, and then Friday happened. My husband,Ken,surprised me. In a big way. See, our anniversary is coming up on May 18. We will have been married for 20yrs. I know you are saying,"Wow, she looks so young, how can she have been married for 20yrs!" Well, in my mind you are saying that. Anyway, Friday started out as a regular day. Take kids to school, drink some coffee, shower. Then Ken told me to get ready, pack a bag for overnight and we were leaving. We don't ever go anywhere overnight....more
