What is in a name?

As long as I can remember, the identity of a name has always carried so much weight.  When we are younger and our parents introduced us as their son, or daughter, rank in child order etc.  As we grow up, siblings, friends, best friends, cousins, Aunts, Uncles and GodParents.

You read an article and a name will automatically trigger a feeling or memory.  There are names that remind you of royalty, heritage, bullies, friends, princesses, strength or weakness and on it goes.

I remember the excitement of being a fiancé, a wife, a mom all names that took my breath away.

My better half and I are happy to share that for the first time ever in 2016, we will have the blessing to be called Grandparents.  We are over the moon with excitement at what our grand-peep will decide to call us.

Our oldest daughter is expecting and we look forward to sharing the journey along the way, the blessing she will receive at being a mommy and our role as Grandparents.

Life is Grand!


This Girl at 48

Another year has come to pass and I’m feeling so truly grateful.  I am sitting here in the still of the night smiling, and giving thanks for all of my blessings and my love affair with my husband.  He has the ability to make everyday an extraordinary one!

I have a few wishes this year, may our children love and be loved as we love.  May we have many more sunrises, sunsets, stolen kisses, laughter and adventure in the years ahead.  May we never take each other for granted and always start and end each day with a kiss.

I loved all my birthday presents but my greatest gifts call me mom and wife!
