About Me

My photo
I'm a work in progress. I'm a mom to two, soon to be three, awesome kids that have taught me things I didn't know I needed to learn. I'm married to a kind and handsome man that I genuinely love to be with. I like to be around interesting people and enjoy learning from others. I'm quirky, energetic, have a glass that's usually half full (of wine) and am spontaneous when it fits into my plans. My life is much slower than it once was and even though I sometimes miss the old days, I never take these new days for granted. So, I've given up alot of things in order to give more of myself to my family ... and they better appreciate it. I mean, I expect nothing in return for my selfless love.

Pictures from Nate's birthday party from ... er, awhile ago.

Nate mentioned that there was a soap he really liked from the soap shop down in the village (which he went to with his mom and sis-in-law, not really by choice. His text to me during that time was, "At soap place now :/" Awww. Heh.) but I didn't know which one. I went down there and guessed and got it right! It smells yummy.
I also bought him some vinyl but I can't remember what it was. Let me ask ... ok, The Velvet Underground and Andrew Bird. We went out to dinner that night at Yamato then to see a movie. We ran into some friends we hadn't seen a long, long time and ended up sitting with them. The wife, Jennifer and I actually just met for coffee yesterday morning! It was so good to catch up an encourage one another ... we're going to start meeting at least once a month. I'm so thankful that God keeps bringing such uplifting women into my life!!!!
So, Nate had a good birthday and felt loved. Mission accomplished. :)
