Poor Babies

We have a virus here and it's take both of my babies down. They spent all day in bed, Giuliana in her bed and Isabella in ours. Tis the season I suppose.

Old Pictures

I found these pictures on an old memory card. They were all taken in 2004.

Giving Thanks

This list is not 100% my own, I found it on another blog that I read and it matched so closely to my list in my mind that I had to adjust it and make it my own. I hope that you all have a very happy Thanksgiving and enjoy your time with your friends and family.

I am thankful for having a place to rest my head that feels like home.

I am thankful for my body’s amazing ability to grow and birth 2 children.

I am thankful for my husband who loves me without condition.

I am thankful for loving people so much that it hurts when they die.

I am thankful for being stretched financially to be given a new perspective.

I am thankful friends and family’s generosity in gift and time.

I am thankful for sickness that creates honest conversation, story telling and the organic desire to be with people you love.

I am thankful for my family and friends guidance and support while I am learning how to raise 2 daughters.

I am thankful for my daughters who has taught me more in the last 3 years than I have learned in my last 10 years.

I am thankful for bubble baths that have become my sanctuary.

I am thankful for stupid television that allows me to leave my own life stresses and make fun of other people for sixty minutes.
