Me and mine...

Two times in the past week I've been asked the same question: "What were your goals and aspirations"
I guess that means;  "What did you want to be before you grew up?"

{Ok, I'm not old, but I'm certainly not a kid anymore}

I'm 33 years old and I am a partner in an intensely-magnificent, and important job called parenthood. We work for a business called Family and have the coolest, most loving, and forgiving boss named GOD.

I never in a million years would have known that my life would have gotten this incredible. I mean it when I say, "If I were happier I would be flying".

So the answer that I gave is that well, I was never really sure what I wanted to do with my life. I had many ideas of what I would do, but none of those were really for me.

Funny thing is, I didn't even know that I wanted to work as a mom. I had no idea the rewards and challenges that were involved.

I had no idea how much joy I would get from following someone around...

I had no idea that I would gage my success by someone else's happiness.

I had no idea that sitting back and watching someone else having fun would make my whole day.

I had no idea how important it would be to listen to someone else's dreams and aspirations. 

I had no idea how amazing it feels to share everything with someone else or that two seperate people could become one.

I had no idea what true contentment was...

or what it feels like...

...until I became a wife and a mother.
I had no idea that I would live such a simple, yet full-of-substance life.
Life is Good!
Thanks God!

Hello Stranger...

I logged onto my blog and I almost didn't recognize it.
It's been so kind of made me sad. It's like an old friend that waits for me to get an extra moment to check in and catch up.
Some of you have scrapbooks, journals or diaries...I have a blog. It's really important to me; it's where I keep my feelings and memories.
Memories of my family's milestones, discoveries, and turning points. Our triumphs, wonders, and adventures. Our blues, blows and tribulations.
I love this blog dearly. It means so much to me.

I have to throw in an early warning: This blog is quite photo-heavy.

We just went on a very-needed family vacation and I'm posting all the pictures here.

~Thank you Uncle Mike and Auntie Elsa { and A&A}! We love you!~

We stayed in D.C. for a few nights and had a blast.
Every time we go to D.C. we get better and better at economical and simple vacationing.
Here are some lessons we learned this time:

~Use our own car to get around instead of the Metro
        -the kids are way more comfortable in the car
        -get to see more of the city
        -I don't feel gross after touching stuff/no creeps
        -CHEAPER by a lot {$70 for Metro day passes vs. $16 parking for 10 hrs on
          Pennsylvania and 13th} 
~Do Not buy food at the Zoo. Pack a lunch and leave it in the cooler in the car.

Now that we know, our next trip will be even more economical and simple...

      You know this place:

         The White House kitchen garden: I really was excited to see this...


    Hope you enjoyed! God Bless!
