A = Awesome - I say that word all the time, but really do mean it. Life can be awesome. The surprises, the simple joys, the wonderful things that life presents can be, well, awesome. No other word that I know comes close to the meaning that "Awesome" encompasses.
I think this is an "awesome" way to start my alphabet tour!!

Patterned Paper, Brads, Buttons, Ribbon, and Rubber Stamps,
and anything that I've never used before...I mean really, it's so fun to try new stuff, and even if I totally end up not liking it, it's still fun to try. Then, occasionally I find something that I didn't think I would like, but I really do.
Right now, I got a new pack of LePlume II pens, so I am busy taking rubber stamps, coloring parts of the the image, or coloring the image different colors, & then stamping it. It's fun!!

Here is one of my family's favorite summer pastimes: summer socials. We are not Catholic, but we do enjoy the fun provided, and are glad to support the different churches with their fund-raisers. I love the basket raffles, Adam loves the food, and Madison loves the rides. But most of all, I think we enjoy the family fun together!

I love a holiday where fireworks are a tradition.
I love that simply loving your country is celebrated.
I love that, once again, the sacrifice that so many have made is remembered & held in high esteem.
I love being in a country that embraces differences, yet can still be one country. (We, however, still have a long way to go on this one...)
I love being able to celebrate freedom in whatever way I want to!!

Lots of changes in our lives. Not too long ago, Madison was getting ready to go into Kindergarten, and I just didn't know how we were going to handle that. Now, there's only 2 weeks left, and she will be a first grader. A FIRST GRADER!! OMGosh. I really don't know how we will handle that. But, I will go into it with the same faith I had when she entered Kindergarten, and know that everything will be OK.
Adam is on thirds now. Trying to combine that with more work for his handyman business. Let's just say, it's going OK at best. Causing a lot of stress. I think I'll blog about that later.

I think my earliest memory is of flying on a plane when I was 5 years old. I remember getting this little "wing" pin to wear, and I was so proud of them. I don't remember much else about it, other than holding someone's hand (come to find out later, it was my sister's).
I have some other memories that seem early, but I am not sure of the timeline on those, but I think this is the earliest. I think it has stayed with me because it was so exciting at the time. I think I felt really special then, and so I remember it.

An angel says, "Never borrow from the future. If you worry about what may happen tomorrow and it doesn't happen, you have worried in vain. Even if it does happen, you have to worry twice."
That's good advice I think!
