Happy Renewal of Vows Anniversary!

May today be filled
with happy memories of the past
and bright hopes for the future

Love is not as simple
as candlelight and roses... is day-to-day living,
taking time, making time to be there,
with open arms and a giving heart...
Love is the special life we share.

Happy Anniversary Benny!

"If you won't take a chance on love & take that leap with faith alone, then all the mysteries & joys of love, will remain to you unknown." -Leanne"

You come to love not by finding the perfect person, but by seeing an imperfect person perfectly.

Day 205 of 365

It's only when we truly know and understand that we have a limited time on earth -- and that we have no way of knowing when our time is up -- that we will begin to live each day to the fullest, as if it was the only one we had.

- Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

Friday!! (Happy Memorial Day weekend!)

___________________________________ we go!

1. Pre-made anything is -- the best food to take on a picnic.
2. Summer is time for fun.
3. I adore flip flops.
4. To love someone is to accept them just as they are & not try to change them.
5. I love a long hike when it is cool and the kids are out doing something else.
6. When I crave food, it's usually too late to eat it!
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to a date night with my hubby, tomorrow my plans include a trip to the beach, church, and life group and Sunday, I want to have fun at our Memorial day picnic!

1. Is there something you've always wanted to try but just can't muster up the courage to actually do yet? Sky-diving (Seriously) I probably won't do it until the kids are old enough to take care of themselves now because I wouldn't want to orphan them but......
2. If you had $100 handed to you in cash without your significant other knowing about it, what would you spend it on?
Photography supplies, scrapbooking materials, sewing stuff, purses, jewelry......just to name a few!
3. What was your favorite piece of playground equipment as a child?
the slide. I loved to go fast!
4. Do you prefer a sweet or hearty breakfast?
just depends on the day and the time. Probably a "hearty" breakfast would include something sweet in my world.
5. Are you a Neat Freak or a Messy Bessy?
I am a neat freak. I have a specific place for everything and like it to be kept there. I can often tell if things have been moved in my house!

Kendall's end of the year performance at St. Anne's


BOOKED! Highlands, NC

Ben is going to be running his first ever adventure race. (I still call him crazy!) He has partnered up with his friend, Aaron, who is also the flight doc for his squadron. (Thank goodness if there are any injuries they can be tended to!) While the guys are doing their race, Erin (Aaron's wife!) and I will be caring for the kids in this lovely house. I haven't done much research on what there is to do in Highlands, NC, but we will see what a 5 to 6 week old, a nearly 4 year old, a nearly 2 year old and their mamas can get into!
We will be gone the second weekend in June so prayers for safe travel, safe race, and sanity of the mothers would be much appreciated!
Stay tuned for more pictures.
