Time Flies.

24 Aug

It’s so hard to believe it’s been five years. And at the same time it’s been the longest five years in forever. Prepare for a picture intensive post πŸ™‚

10 years or so ago, Mom and me went on a cruise with some of my friends…

And hanging out on the beaches with us…

Mom was a trooper sleeping in our luxurious bunk beds….

 

Obviously Mom loved being outside —

A Day of Love

25 Aug

Well this was definitely a mixed bag weekend – mostly good though!

Friday I introduced my friend Kathy to #Bikram and she says she enjoyed it! Them spent the night at her house, met her new puppy and her husband cooked a great dinner (and breakfast)

001

Best part of the weekend was Saturday’s Ray Lang Memorial Golf Tournament to benefit The Tug McGraw Foundation. My friend Pete and his family put on this event every year in memory of his dad. I’ve met some really great people through my running with Team McGraw and a LOT of them are Pete’s family!! They’re such an amazing, loving and welcoming group of people. I’m not a golfer but I love hanging out with the other non-golfers! Play is followed by dinner and a raffle – this is really the only time I win good stuff! This year I was hoping for the β€œchair” – another outdoor chair for relaxing in the backyard. I was also really interested in the package of Hostess goodies! I threw my tickets into a few other bags as well.

But I REALLY wanted the chair!

And guess what I didn’t get. Right, I didn’t get the Hostess goodies.     012 But I did get the chair!! Woot! Yay me!! It’s a really nice one – including a cup holder that I will eventually figure out!

015

I also picked up this little handbag.    016

But really the best part of the day is catching up with friends I haven’t seen in awhile.And, it was great to be surrounded by so much love, especially yesterday.

Four years ago yesterday, my big brother called me to tell me that my mom had died. And it’s probably no exaggeration to say that I have missed her so much every single day since then. But for some reason, this year has been particularly tough. Overall, I think I’ve been much happier and content the last several months than I have in a long time. But there’s always something missing. Sometimes you just need a hug from your mom.

Happy Mother’s Day

12 May

My dad took this picture of my mom back in the olden days! He was testing out a new camera

My mom loved flowers…so maybe that’s why I like to have flowers in my house so much… My lilac tree is blooming so I’m going to cut some and bring it in. Mom liked lilac.

I miss her so much every single day and always will.

Never miss a chance to tell the people you love that you love them. This is definitely something I’m still working on and find it much easier to do in writing than face to face πŸ™‚

Happy Mother’s Day to all my friends who are Moms — even if your kids have four legs and fur. xoxo
