How We Celebrate Birthdays Around Here

I love birthdays! One whole day to love on just one person. One day that allows you to give a person a glimpse into how much their life means to you! It is almost 19 years ago that our birthday tradition began. It was my birthday during our first year of marriage and my day started off with a stack of envelopes. Keep in mind that we barely had any money in those years but what followed made me feel …

Being a Tourist in Denver | Top Spots on My Birthday

I am a birthday girl and try to squeeze every last bit out of it on that day. When people say they don’t really care about their bday’s I do not relate to those people. At all.

They are intricate, delicate and stunning. Pretty…just for pretty’s sake. We …

{source} I turn 40 in a little over three months. I don’t know what I thought I would feel…but I am completely fine with it. Growing up I heard horror stories of women turning 40.  Seriously, I thought it was full of doom and despair. What do I have to be afraid of? It doesn’t matter that I am turning 40 because inside I still think I am a hot 24:-) Heck, if you stay away from mirrors you can …

My Heart’s Desire

If there was anything I have always been sure of …..it was knowing that I wanted to be a mom. Always. From the time I was a little girl playing with dolls, playing house, “sewing” bags by stapling them together:-) or even playing Barbies….I was preparing for being a mom. I think back on some of the boys that stole my heart long before Kelly. Wonderful boys…..just not the right boy. Boys that have grown up to be another persons …
