Do You Know What Today is . . .?


 It’s our anniversary!!! As of 4 pm today, I will have been married for 11 years! A milestone some may say. But i’ll let you in on a little secret. September 21st is the date Rob and I got married in front of all our friends and family. And although that is the date we celebrate as our anniversary, we actually got married in Vegas on January 3rd, 2002. I got the crazy idea in my head that I wanted us to have a secret from the rest of the world. So I suggested we run off into the night and get married and not tell anyone. It would just be our little secret. Well, we did. And we kept that secret, pretty much. I don’t know what it is about secrets. Sometimes they can be sooo good.☺ Anyway, it’s been an amazing journey. There have been many lessons learned on both sides, and we are still growing. I thank God for the life He has blessed us to create together and I’m looking ahead with excitement toward our future!

Through a Child’s Eyes . . .


Today was the first “free” Saturday I’ve had in a long time. (By free, I mean nothing planned, no appointments, places to be etc.) and that happened unexpectedly, but what a joy it was!! I spent the day hiking, walking, talking and laughing uncontrollably with my crew. In the infamous words of Ice Cube… “Today was a good day.”

I hope yours was too. ♥

So much has been happening as the days of February go by. This month has been a whirlwind and we are not even through it yet! I promised myself I would get our taxes done without waiting til’ the last second like we did last year, so we spent last Friday @ the accountant’s office. While we were there I  randomly checked my facebook page on my phone (I am so NOT a facebook person, I rarely, if ever, open the app on my phone). While listening to Rob & the accountant talk, I scrolled down and discovered that a really dear friend of our family had passed away earlier that day. My heart just sank. I felt so trapped!!! It’s so crazy how when you hear about the death of someone you care about, all these memories, and emotions and feelings just come flooding in. And then memories and feelings and emotions from other people you love who have passed away come rushing back too!! Ugh. Anyway, that’s Diana (top row, middle pic in the collage). She was such a larger than life person, with a huge loving heart and a warm, inviting smile. She and her family were a big part of our childhood when we first moved back to Cali from Chicago. We spent almost every summer day @ Diana’s house hanging out with her kids, our friends, David & Cara. Our days were spent shoeless, and carefree, between the beach and her pool, swimming all day, eating Doritos and just being kids. My memories of Diana and her family always bring a smile to my face. They were some of the happiest times of my childhood, and I am so thankful for them.

On other fronts, my samples are being made as we speak (yay!) And we are working on the redesign of the website. (double yay!). I am super excited. We are also gearing up for our photo shoot @ the beginning of March. Lots of prep-work, plotting, & planning going on. I love it! In the meantime and in between time, I am trying to get used to my new haircut. I had to get rid of the dead ends and have been wanting to go short for a while, so I have finally taken the first step. I don’t have my ideal cut yet, but I am on my way there and I am enjoying the changes along the way.

Well guys, thanks for listening to my ramblings, I have a conference call in 20 mins, so I guess I should prep for that so I can cover all my bases!!! Hope you are having a fab Wednesday. Keep moving toward your goals, they are truly attainable!!!
