Safe travels D!!!

Our dearest Darren is embarking on a long trip to Africa to go on safari.

He will be gone through Christmas until the new year.

We wish him the safest of travels and a wonderful journey.

Love you D!!! Be safe and have fun.

P.S.- Don’t forget to bring Lily an elephant, giraffe or a zebra!

around here

Things around here have been pretty back to normal and relatively easy.

It took a while after being away for so long, then Lily got sick with hand-foot-and-mouth disease and don’t even get me started on how this past mercury retrograde affected me but, we made it through.

Yesterday I did 4 loads of laundry and today we will be packing because tomorrow we will be flying out to West Virginia.

We are all eager to see family, the mountains and of course the much anticipated holidays.

Here are some cell pics.

Have a great wednesday everyone!

A Passport!!!!

Lily’s passport arrived today.

She can finally go visit her family who so anxiously awaits to meet her in Portugal in September. (now all we need are tickets)

Go Lily, Go!

And on that note, HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND EVERYONE! I will be meeting up with one of my best friends who I have not seen in more than 3 years.

A few of my favorite things

Thinking about vacation (August in West Virginia and September in Portugal) always gets me excited.

As excited as I get about being away and being somewhere totally different, I also get homesick.

You see, as much as I like to travel, I also really love being home surrounded by my favorite things.

So, this got me thinking: what are my favorite things?

There are quite a few.
