It's Been Awhile!

Monday, December 26, 2011

It's been a while since I've posted and I hope everyone had a great Christmas!  Ours was busy insane but in a good way.  Christmas is my favorite time of year.  It brings people together and reminds us of how lucky we are to have each other.  It's a time of reflection and what has brought us to this point in our lives.  Good times and bad but we've lived our lives.  Someone once said that if we never experience sorrow how will we know joy.  I believe that with all my heart.  Appreciate the people around you and keep them close to you.  Treasure every moment...

Some pics I want to share with you and I hope you enjoy:

My Beloved Sam

Hubby and Sam

My Little Girl

The Boy and Natalie

My Darling Granddaughter

All of the above are reasons why I am grateful to have what I do.

Merry Christmas!!!!

Insane Weekend

Sunday, December 18, 2011

This has been an insane weekend.  From the minute I left work on Friday it's been non-stop.

Friday was hubby's 2nd part of his birthday celebration and took some great pics which I will share here:

At the Keg

Having a great time!

Hubby and his Sis

the Kid

Okay so that was Friday night.  Had great food, great company and well you know.....just great all around!

Then Saturday it was time to visit Natalie my beautiful granddaughter.  Here are some pics:

God, I love this kid....

Hi Grandma!
Well I'm sipping some wine and going to relax a bit waiting for dinner.  We've been out all day grocery shopping and Christmas shopping.  I need to put my feet up!!!

Busy Week

Tuesday, December 13, 2011

This week is a busy week.

Hubby's birthday is Thursday so we're going out where he can eat free...hehe but it will be a 2-part B'day just like the kid had because then on Friday the celebration continues.  We're taking him to one of his favorite restaurants for a great meal, wine and of course lots of pics that I'll post on the weekend.  He deserves it.  He's my best friend, my lover, my protector and confidante.  I love him dearly.

Now with that said, there's also Christmas celebrations going on at work this week as well as gift shopping and wrapping.  Not to mention visits in between to see my beautiful granddaughter.

Family will be coming here for Christmas and I can't wait.  The people I love and care about here to share food, laughter and everything that's good in the world.  Of course not everyone we love and care about will be here physically but they'll be in our thoughts and in our hearts.

I feel so fortunate for the life I've had so far.  Two beautiful children who I've watched grow into beautiful adults and of course my first grandchild.  I have a wonderful husband and great friends.  What more could somone ask for?  I don't need anymore than that.  I feel sad for people that do.

Enjoy the pics I've posted:

I'm So Tired

Please No More Cameras!

Okay I'm Back!

Monday, December 5, 2011

Wow I just came off a site displaying my beloved Venetian masks and costumes.  Reminds me of Venice where I spent my birthday.  Unforgettable..............

For someone like myself who collects Venetian masks I was like a kid in a candy store.  When I entered the shops along the canal I was transported back into time.  A time I can well imagine...

Anyway had to share these awsome pictures with you and hope you enjoy.

In another life...

Hope you enjoyed!!!!

Last Night...

Friday, December 2, 2011

Last night we took the kid out for Part 1 of her birthday celebration.  I can't believe it's been 28 years since she arrived in this world.  Wow how time flys.  When I look at my new granddaughter it makes me think of when the kid was born.  Best Christmas present ever!!!!

Tonight is Part 2 of the the kid's birthday celebration and we will take her to her favorite restaurant.

Here's a few pics from last night:
