It’s Our Day, Again

Friday, September 16th, 2016

It’s September 16th.

The day in 1989 that we did this.

Who knew we’d still be at it 27 years later?

Oh, I kid. We knew, otherwise….why else would we have plunged into marriage at 22 years old with nothing between us but an old Chevy Cavalier and an S-10 truck?

Kids, we had nothing. Just cars. No house, no furniture, no STUFF and certainly no cellphones!

I’d hop in an old 80’s style limo with you all over again, babe!

Nobody could tell us a thing, we wouldn’t have listened any way. From day one, we’ve bit off more than we could chew and paid triple what anything cost….but we did it our way.

Two head strong first-born leaders – pushing, forcing and insisting on getting the last word. Over & over & over again.

Still, here we are…alive, in love and looking forward to every moment together. That’s real love.

I am so thankful you didn’t kick me to the curb and that I never choked you out and watched your eyes pop out of your head. (sorry for the graphic description of my passion for you)

WE BELONG TOGETHER!!! Two crazies livin’ on love.

I love you. Happy 27th anniversary, true love!

Summer Weather Autumn’s Cheer

Thursday, September 1st, 2016


September, never disappoints. It literally blew in with the softest chilly breeze this morning. Perfect hot-tub weather. So, I obliged.

The summer heat is slipping away, slowly. Taking along with it the memories of flower beds over-flowing, tomatoes on the vine and endless mowing. For me, this summer has been a time of uncertainty and stress.

I’m learning to let it go and look forward.

September is a special month for me. Not only because I love the fall — it’s my wedding month. Every year for the last 27 years, the 16th comes around…reminding me that all those years ago I put on my most beloved dress and did my make-up & hair, hoping to take his breath away for the rest of his life.

He still behaves as though I do, so I capitalize on that by celebrating our love every year.

It’s not just my anniversary though. I love September for all the other good things it offers too:

I’m almost giddy with excitement when I read over that list. Football, guac, PSL’s……CANDLES!!! Seriously, all my favorite things about this world! It’s no wonder why I picked September to marry my best friend!

It’s our month, baby!!!

And September 2016 holds a whole new life for us! So, come on in September! We’ve been waiting for you, welcome!

Getting Over August

Friday, September 2nd, 2011

August was busy! I can say that because it flew by so fast that I barely remember it. I haven’t forgotten the long hot days though. They were killer! My whopping electric bill is proof! It’s one of the highest we’ve ever had. Dog it!

Many good things happened in August. So how will I ever top it?

My family traveled to Florida for a great vacation.

We visted with great friends along the way.

I enjoyed a great trip with my hubby.

Partied it up at a Colts game with fun friends.

Went to see one of THE BEST movies, ever!

Started back to school. Won a $100 giftcard to BestBuy. Took our favorite babysitter out for dinner (who lives far away). Spent some quality time tanning by a very nice pool. Read a couple interesting books. Let go of another child (to the college world). Enjoyed my nest being full. Dated my hubby. Stayed inside in the a/c. Shared precious conversations with forever friends. Watched my kids make a few forever friends.

I could go on but I won’t. You’re probably thinking of your own blessings about this last month. I’m just wondering…..HOW WILL I TOP IT?

My favorite season is fall. So I’m really excited about the next couple of months. High on my list of must do’s? JEANS, Sweatshirts & football! Welcome, Fall! What took you so long?
