23 Years ago today I was blessed to bring this amazing little boy into the world! He has been such a blessing in our lives and I can't imagine my life without him.

He has now grown to be an adult and I love him more now than I did when he was little.

He has been in the Marine Corp for 4 years and this is the first year we will be able to spend his Birthday with him in 4 years!

Jon is a character! He is fun and serious and creative and an absolutely amazing photographer!

He is witty and makes us laugh our heads off.
I have missed him more than my blogging words could ever say, but now he is home and getting married to his beautiful Fiance' Alex!

Jon I was so proud of all of your strides back then and I am even more proud of you now!

I love you Jon Happy Birthday!!

PHOTO A DAY IN MAY- Realizing Our Differences

Apparently hair color expands if mixed and left over night on a shelf in your bathroom. But the best part of this picture is this is what I woke up to this morning.

Now mind you my Husband ( who is wonderful and amazing and this is not a Husband Bashing Blog! I will not participate in that!!!! ) woke up far before I did and used this bathroom to shower and get himself ready for work. The phenomenon is that he did not see the exploding hair color dripping from the shelf on to the toilet and floor.

I woke up and walked past the bathroom and its the first thing I saw!

I am only posting this because it made me realize how really focused my husband is when getting ready in the morning. He has all other compartments of his brain closed off at that time. I do not hold this against him in any way.Quite the contrary. He takes amazing care of his family and works his butt off for all of us.

I love that he thinks in compartments because when he is with me, His focus is all on me!! Let the little things slide ladies!!

Realize the differences!!!

My diaper cakes seem to be more a therapeutic hobby than a business.
I love to give these as gifts to friends having little ones. This one is by far my favorite!

PHOTO A DAY IN MAY - Beak To Beak Time

Harmon the Eagle has captured the hearts of so many people. It is a glaring example of love in nature. It somewhat reminded me of the story of the Prodigal Son. All though Harmon didn't really choose to leave the nest to pursue the party scene. But the reacquainting with his parents has been nothing short of miraculous and every mother watching can attest to the beauty of a returning child. Prodigal or not!

PHOTO A DAY IN MAY- Perfect Sunshine

Today started as one of those perfect sunshine kind of days. So i went to sit outside and get some sun. When this 35 MPH wind picked up and began whipping those tree hellicopters at my legs and face!
All of the sudden my PERFECT FERRIS BUELLER kind of day is over. Back to yard work!

Meet Trek! She is my passion! I can get lost in time on my bike rides. I crank up my music and ride for 15-25 miles each ride. Keeps me sane and fit all at once! I highly recommend taking out your bike and dusting it off and giving it a ride! Even if its been a few years just do it! Its just like Riding a Bike!
