Life is Good



Life is good when surrounded by the people you love and who love you.

-I received a voice mail today that put a huge smile on my face. My dear, good friend, Jen, called to thank me for a birthday present I sent her (Happy Birthday, Jen!). She was so happy on the message, and that made me SO happy! I sent her some of her favorite wine. She thinks alcohol cannot be shipped into Pennsylvania, so I will just let her think that I performed feats of awesome-ness to accomplish this (really, it was no problem). Not only did I send her one bottle, I threw in two for good measure. Love you, girl.

-I received a text last night from my dear, good friend, Juli, saying that she can visit me this summer! Holy crap, I could think of nothing more exciting. (Hopefully, Jen can join her too?!) Us girls, we could take over the world if given enough power to be dangerous!

-My son and I are excited for a play date at another dear, good friend’s house this weekend! Yes, I attend the play date as well because it really is more about me getting to hang with The Awesome Amy.

-My family just booked a trip for the summer in Mexico! We get to relive the excitement of Rude Behavior is Inevitable! What an amazing time – beach, aqua-bar, AND family. I am beside myself. So much to look forward to.

In the midst of some stressful times and remembrances of past, sad events, my heart is full of love for the people in my life.

Sappy of me, I know, but ‘tis true.

Now, I will go and take an opportunity to watch The “Real” Housewives of Miami bitches duke it out on their reunion show. Yessss. Life is Good.
