"Memory is a drug. Memory can hold you against your strength and against your will. Never turn back and never believe that an hour you remember is a better hour, because it is dead." Beryl Markham, West with the Night

Virginia Visit, Ongoings...

I had a fantastic time visiting Kristin in VA! I helped with Vi's nursery, planned/executed a beautiful shower with Lauren, and got to witness an amazing Anthropologie-esque maternity photo shoot done by Kellan Studios.

I would post my photos, but there are so many and I'm just too tired! See them here.

In other news, I'm home! It's been a busy few days and I'm looking forward to an uneventful week. Uneventful UNTIL Friday when I (along with McCall, Amy, and Kelly) get to see...

GAGA! Yes, you heard me right. I imagine I'll tell my grandchildren about this one.

"I decided, very early on, just to accept life unconditionally; I never expected it to do anything special for me, yet I seemed to accomplish far more than I had ever hoped. Most of the time it just happened to me without my ever seeking it."
--Audrey Hepburn


I have an obsession with Gain detergent.

Not just Gain detergent--

Gain fabric softener.

AND Gain dryer sheets.

If I could, I would wear Gain perfume. It is my favorite smell in the world.

July 3rd

Due to the recent blog creation by my dear sister Kristin (and subsequent tagging of my blog to hers), I have decided to get back on the "blog train" as she calls it.

Since I last wrote, we got:


It's been a crazy year! In October, Pat got a new job which led to our move to Red Oak. Buying our first house was stressful to say the least-- I'm so glad we'll never be first time homebuyers again. We also became parents! Buster is a beautiful chocolate lab and we love him lots. He is basically a very hairy toddler who slobbers and barks. In May I finished my second year of teaching Kindergarten at CDA. This Fall I'll make the bittersweet transition into administrative office. Looking forward to a change, but I'll miss teaching.

It's a rainy July 3rd and our fellow Red Oakians are already shooting off their firecrackers! It's only 6:30! Happy Independence Day, everyone!

460 days and counting...

I love my husband because he hears songs like this and thinks of me!

"I could tell you my adventures beginning from this morning,"
said Alice a little timidly, 
"but it's no use going back to yesterday 
because I was a different person then."
