Yesterday was my parents 28th anniversary. Wow..it's a rare, beautiful thing in this day and age. I am so blessed to be able to call them my parents. But more then that, I'm blessed to call them my friends. We don't have a normal "parent/child" relationship. They are two of my best friends and..I'm gonna start crying. I trust them with my life. I value their opinions. I love laughing with them. They have given me so many words of wisdom that I could write a book. We have so many inside jokes that I'm smiling remembering them. And boy, I'm going to miss them so much. Thank God for technology. Phone calls and facebooking might be enough but it's going to be so hard.

All I can really say right now is thank you. It's because of them that I am the women I am today. It's because of their love for each other that I haven't settled for just any guy who's come along. It's because of their love for Grace and I that I have such a big heart (or big head?? hehe).

A million "Thank Yous" wouldn't be enough.

I love you.

These are a few of my favorite things!

What are some of your favorites (memories, things, books, anything) and why?

So you want to know what my favorite memory is eh?

I can't just choose one memory, I have a few that stick out in my mind.

I remember, very clearly, the night my sister Grace was born. That morning my mom came in to her room (I slept on a mattress in their room a lot) to wake me up and tell me she was in labor. I laughed at her and rolled over to go back to sleep, thinking it was false alarm number..3? But I was wrong, when I realized she was serious I jumped out of bed and the next few hours were a blur. I do, however, remember my friend Azalea and I standing outside of the bedroom and hearing my mom yell at me to come see. Wow..tearing up as I write this. I remember bolting into the bedroom, hearing Grace cry and started sobbing. I remember sitting next to my mom and asking what it was, boy or girl? I remember holding her for the first time and just crying. I remember saying that she's beautiful and completely falling in love, promising to protect and praying that God would be her Everything. That was almost eight years ago and I've watched Grace grow up before my eyes. Turning into a beautiful girl with a great smile and laugh. I love her with everything in me!! That's one of my favorite memories.

Here's another one- I'm on a roll, can you tell?

When I was younger I was super close to my cousins, Katie and Mollie. I was right in between them age wise and I cannot tell you how many fun times we had. We used to play indians in the backyard, Purple Iris, Morning Star and..I can't remember my indian name. After we'd play indians we would turn into fancy ladies and on our sleepover nights we would braid each others hairs and talk about tea parties and balls. In the mornings after breakfast we'd get dressed in our long dresses and play the boardgame Titanic, where the object was to see who could get to the lifeboats first. I can't remember who won but I do remember laughing so hard we were crying. If it was nice outside we'd grab the scooters and head to the park to swing and talk. Those were the most fun filled days I can remember having when I was younger. We're not as close as we used to be and I've watched them fall in love and am going to Katie's wedding this summer. Sometimes I wish we could all be kids still and stay up late talking. I do miss those times.

I think I'm done for now. Whew..memory lane!!

At a loss

I think I'm at the same place my mom was at a few weeks ago. I can't figure out what to blog. I could continue to blog about my days but that's going to get old fast since it's rare for something exciting or spontaneous to happen.

Any thoughts or ideas??

New Look!

I wish I could take the credit for the new look of my blog, but I have no idea how to do that stuff. It was my wonderful mother who gets all of the credit for it. I think it's perfect :) I love flip flops (not thongs!) and summer and sunshine! I think it's about time to change the name of my blog though, I have a few ideas for it..we'll see what happens.

This weekend was perfect. The weather was amazing and the time spent with friends was equally nice. Have I mentioned how blessed I am lately?
