So we are "home" (my hometown) for the weekend. My sister and I were in a wedding for a childhood friend. We are at my parent's house in between wedding and reception but not before making a pit stop at a graduation party. Someday our life will slow down....I am pretty sure I have just come to the conclusion that it's not going to happen ANYTIME soon so why keep getting upset when it doesn't happen. I know most would say "just say no," or "you have to choose what important," but I take pride in making an effort to do these things. Most would say they can't or are too busy....but we try to MAKE time for all. This is something we did growing up and a quality I want to pass onto my children. (no offense to anyone, just the way we did it as a family-doesn't make it the only way)
 I had a post scheduled for today but I don't know what happened to it. I also don't know what happened to MY ENTIRE new blog layout. It was done earlier this week and now it's gone...;( Hopefully we get it up and going soon. Well baby is to go for now.


  1. Can I just say how much I love hearing about your "growing up" years. Eesie loves you.

  2. I really love that you make an effort to attend everything you can. That is how I am but my husband is not so I have to find that balance. I'm learning (after 10 years of marriage) to be honest when I really want to attend things because he will go if it is what I want - I just try to pick and choose things that he will also enjoy.
    Blogger really messed up this past week so I'm sure that has what happened to whatever you are missing :-)

  3. I found your blog from another blog I follow. I am now following your blog too. You see, I am an identical twin myself. I am so sorry for your loss as a mother and I am sorry to your son's loss too. I hope you will follow me back

  4. I think it's great you all try to do everything. Think of it this way, the busier you are with different people the more love there is to go around! THAT many people LOVE you all and you guys LOVE that many people! You all are blessed!! Gas prices suck though! ;)

  5. I Love that Emily and I totally agree. You MAKE time for family and your lifelong friends! We always manage and I'm so glad we do!


I always love what you'll have to say...thanks for stopping by!
