May. A month where not a lot of writing got done because life was so busy. I vow to get back on the writing path…I have so many notes in my Moleskin, it’s just a matter of carving out the time. Anyway, here’s what I loved about May.
The birthday’s continued with my sister’s birthday. My older sister Edwina (middle in the photo below) is one of my best friends. She’s a strong, sophisticated, self-sufficient and successful woman. She’s known in our family as the ‘First Responder’…
you need her you just think about needing her and she’s there. Love her!
My cousin Jody (only boy in the photo below) also had a surprise birthday party. It really WAS a surprise! He kept us waiting for two hours…lol.
My husband and I celebrated our 12th year anniversary. Here’s what I posted to Facebook on our anniversary:
“Today, as Robert and I celebrate our 12th anniversary, this Lena Horne quote comes to mind. “It’s not the load that breaks us down, it’s how we carry it.” Always, always remember that it’s not the situation, challenge or ‘thing’ that breaks us down, but rather how we approach/handle that situation, challenge or ‘thing’. Marriage looks different for everyone and what works for others may not work for some – it’s not our place to judge. But what I do know is that I’ve been blessed with a great partner and we’ve found an exciting way to ‘carry’ our marriage. Thank you Captain for a great journey so far and I look forward to many, many more. I appreciate the way you consistently put my happiness and well-being ahead of yours and how you’ve fulfilled your promise to my Dad to take the best care of me when you asked him to marry me”
Our mini photo-shoot with the boys in Kensington Market! Love that place…so great for photos…here’s one of the hundreds that we took
Finally, with the close of the month, I said ‘see you around’ to one of the best group of co-workers I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. I start a new job on June 3, but the memories and laughs that I shared with this group really added much to my life. I’m so thankful for the opportunity of having met each and every one of them. Goodbyes are always hard.
