I'm Sorry...

I have to apologize for my absence on my blog. I had a difficult situation going on in my life for a few months ad quite honestly found myself at a real loss. The situation has resolved it's self and I am feeling better and am ready to post a blog.

Happy Birthday Dylan

It's hard to belive it has been 16 years since my bouncing baby boy was born. Dylan was 9lbs 5oz when he was born , we were all amazed at our big baby boy. Dylan is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. Thoughtful, soft spoken , excellent with children, patient, creative, smart. I could go on and on. Dylan has grown in leaps and bounds the past year, now the same height as my husband and shoe size I think he may pass Dave in height. It's such a wierd thing when your kids are bigger than you. It;s like " Hey, how did that happen?"
Happy 16th Dylan! You are Awesome and I love ya buddy!

I hope everyone had a relaxing and peaceful Memorial Day weekend. We certainly did here , I wanted to share some photos with you from Sunday. My daughter (the redhead)has a very dear friend who lives in lower Ohio and we live in upper South Carolina so they organized a way for us mom's to each drive 3.5 hours and meet in this town in West Virgina, Bluefield. They are working on a project for an upcoming concert for their favorite singer Taylor Swift.
Bluefield was a beautiful small town nestled in the mountains and we were lucky enough to find this park that had a quite stream and huge trees for shade. it was such a relaxing day and the girls got to spend time together before we all meet in Nashville in a week and a half. I hope you enjoy these pics.

A few of my favorite things...

I am crazy for Anthropologie they have the most amazing things! Just the smell when you walk(float) into one of the stores carries you away to a magical place. I swear I could kill 1/2 a day in there. That's why I also love to shop on line with

Then there is CSI MIAMI which I love, love, love. I am a CSI Miami Junkie, I am still in shock from last nights episode. Yikes, it was the season finale so it's going to be a while before we know how that works out.
What are some of your favorite things?
