I'm so lucky to spend everyday with my best friend, hubby and the love of my life. Every moment we have together is so special. We had the most relaxing time in Clearlake, Ca. Our plan was to go there and not do much of anything and we soon found out this was a very small town and our plans of "doing nothing" would be easy to accomplish. :0) We spent time golfing, enjoying the sun, feeding the ducks, visiting all the local restaurant's and watching movies. It was awesome just being together. We had the most romantic valentines day in the little tiny restaurant called Park Place. The food and atmosphere was awesome. When we drove past it during the day we both were completely unsure because on the outside its not much to look at! That's why you really shouldn't judge a book by its cover. It was a little hidden treasure and we really enjoyed ourselves. We talked about what it will be like to be parents and how things are going to change and we both feel so excited for what's to come. There is definitely not another single soul in this world who I am meant to be with and as soon as I think my love for this man can't grow it does by leaps and bounds!~ Sometimes it's with just a simple smile or something goofy he says or does. I could really go on and on with this so I will stop myself here. Take it from us a Babymoon is totally worth it! Go! Get a little get away in... before baby comes to really connect and take time out just for yourself. It was so much fun. If you already have a little one or little ones maybe let the grandparents babysit for the weekend and get away! It will be worth it to come back refreshed and ready to take on all the daily tasks. :0)
Have a happy day.
Music has always been something that is near to my heart! My first memory of it was when I was super little my papa would play all these songs and I would listen to him and think One day he is going to be famous!!! lol Now he would tell you that was never in the cards for him and that he's just a average guy humming along, but to me he is famous!! This could be because, other then my husband there is no other man I love more in this whole world! I loved singing along with my papa and learning all the songs he loved, I'm pretty sure we were even listening to some of these old classics on my papas old 8 track lol. Now I was born in 1980 to clarify things ;0) Anyway, I was thinking how when I hear a song it takes you right back to a certain moment, maybe one you may not have remembered otherwise and that is just a special gift! One only you and that song and maybe another person share. I still love singing some of the oldies my papa loves...Chantilly Lace, Yellow Polka Dot Bikini, Blueberry Hill, Rockin Robin, Twist and shout, Runaround Sue....Omg So many I could never name them all. It used to be so fun when I would sing along with these songs and people would be shocked I knew all the words, at like 5 years old! :0) I love the feeling you get when you hear a certain song, sometimes its inspiration, sometimes peace, happiness, sadness any emotion can really be brought to the surface! I just got a text message from one of my very best friends in the whole world yesterday, and it had the song Count on me by Bruno Mars playing, That's it just the song, no message but really it was such a special message! I looked up the words and was so touched.
If you ever find yourself stuck in the middle of the sea
I'll sail the world to find you
If you ever find yourself lost in the dark and you can't see
I'll be the light to guide you
You can count on me like one, two, three
I'll be there and I know when I need it
I can count on you like four, three, two
And you'll be there 'cause that's what friends
Are supposed to do
Me and My papa :0)
I thought about over the years how many songs have touched my heart and what a big part music plays in my daily life! I love pretending I'm the best singer, dancer and overall top performer, and I'm lucky enough to be surrounded by friends and family and my wonderful Husband who make me feel this way everyday! I can't wait to show our little guy that even something that's as simple as a song, something we might normally take for granted you can find appreciation in! I can't wait to watch my papa share all the songs he loves with our son. Just thinking about moments like that make me smile and almost bring tears to my eyes.
Animals are such a blessing. I really feel like they are little gifts straight from heaven. Over the years I been blessed with so many amazing pets, they will shower you with the most uncondtional love there ever was and in return I feel we should do the same for them. I can't stand to see an animal being mistreated, this is just unjustifiable! They depend on you for love, care and comfort. Just looking at my little Jewelsey Mae today made me feel like writing a little love note to all the furry babies out there. Big, small, dog, cat, horse, even the not so fuzzy lizards and such...whatever the animal is you choose to have as a pet. Treat them well everyday! It's the least we can do for them! Lets give them all a little more love and really make them feel like the special little gifts that they are! :0)
Me and Jewel just relaxing
Hope your day is a very good one and you have a smile on your face!
Hugs and love coming your way from
a "fuzzy baby" mama and soon to be mama of 2 :0)
