My mission statement~

I intend on "trying" to live a life that is about: not putting in my mouth things that are bad for me or have come from an animal that was treated cruely while alive on this earth and during slaughter, creating lasting fond memories for my children and grandchildren, adventure, challenging myself, respect others regardless of species, race, color or creed, taking risks, having fun, being grateful, respecting myself & my body, being authentically myself, taking responsibility for my actions, being proactive, being a problem solver, taking action, introspection, transition, change, honesty, growth, loving & helping others, having integrity, doing my best, being easy on myself, enjoying this world, becoming well read, seeing the wonder of it all and never allowing fear to hold me back!

Happy "Birth" day my first born...

~My "first born" Megs~
Her and Jonathan spent Christmas 2007 camping in the Sahara Desert. They rode camels into the desert for days, then slept on rugs in the sand! That's my adventure girl!!!!!!!!
Ha, ha! Funny!










I love you sweetheart!


I remember the day I gave birth


to you like it was yesterday!


25 years ago today
after a way too long labor, poof!


You came forth into the world with:


grace, beauty, and a thirst for lovin'.


Your big brown eyes,


light brown curly hair and


olive skin were captivating!


I loved nursing you,


rocking you,


singing to you,


bathing you and


showing you off!


You were and


still are an amazement to me.


Never forget


how much you are


unconditionally loved by your "mama"!
