My One and Only Love

Happy Valentine's Day!

I thought it would be a great time to write a post about our 15th Anniversary trip we took in October.  I have been enjoying looking at our pictures over and over again especially on these snowy days.

But first, here's our love story… cupid struck love with his arrow…..17 years ago!

The "S" Word!

Anyone else feeling the winter blahs?  Every year I get them, but this year I think it is worse due to the "s" word which has kept my kids home from school more times than I would like to mention.  And another storm is approaching….well at the time of me posting this, the storm has arrived and school is cancelled…again.

The winter blahs have also made it hard for me to write... actually hard for me to think about something to write about.  I have sat in front of my computer and started posts, many different times.  And then I hit delete and start over.  I just wasn't feeling it.

All these snow days have helped me "focus" on different aspects of my life.  In the past I would have complained on and on about my kids being home, driving me crazy and not having enough caffeine and wine to get through it all.  Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying I didn't complain about all the past snow days...I did, but for the first time it really truly wasn't about the kids being home.   Of course having my kids home for 11 days (including weekends!) got to me….and I to them, as we all craved our routine...our schedules....our sanity.  But something inside me changed.
