Cheers to New Beginnings!

“Another fresh new year is here . . .
Another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt, and fear,
To love and laugh and give!

This bright new year is given me
To live each day with zest . . .
To daily grow and try to be
My highest and my best!

I have the opportunity
Once more to right some wrongs,
To pray for peace, to plant a tree,

And sing more joyful songs!”

~William Arthur Ward


A Christmas of Firsts...

Christmas has always been my favorite time of the year.  But this year’s a little bit more special because of a few firsts…

First Christmas in our new home. 

First time in years that I actually have the time to prepare,

and enjoy the season.

First to make handmade gifts. 


First time in years to stay at home (instead of party hopping on Christmas day. Don't get me wrong, I loved it, but it's just a good change)

and prepare Christmas dinner.

First time with my In-Laws.
I hope your Christmas was as meaningful, and peaceful and loving as ours.  And though I'm still recuperating from the sleepless nights of gift wrapping and endless cleaning and cooking, I'm definitely looking forward to the next one.  For a few more firsts are bound to happen, this time, with our new little addition.


Today We Celebrate Those Who Willingly Gave Their Lives In Freedom's Name

Raising Our Child With Patriotic Pride

U was so proud to have her Veteran grandpa celebrate with her today!  

This Flag was made by the little hands 

of our Future.

In honor of all the men and women who fought for our freedom and that of our children's, U's  school celebrated by hosting a free-for-all pancake breakfast.
