Weekend love.- Our days.

“Live your truth. Express your love. Share your enthusiasm. Take action towards your dreams. Walk your talk. Dance and sing to your music. Embrace your blessings. Make today worth remembering.”  ―  Steve Maraboli ,  Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience Lately, I've enjoyed simple things. I'm happy I've started running again.

Weekend love.-Capturing moments

Pretty lights , baked goodies , and family time -I could cherish these moments for a very long time.  I enjoyed evenings spent by our Christmas tree. -It just feels so cozy. One of my favorite ornaments hangs in the very front of our tree. It's very special to me and represents the love, and bond I have with my daughter. God truly has blessed us. While deployed to the Middle East- my husband picked up this hand-painted vase. It's traveled around a bit. It's now displayed on a shelf in our living room.  Our daughter hosted a pastry party. There were plenty of goodies and cakes with delicious whipped toppings. My favorite was the strawberry cake she prepared.  Our nights included- Art and family play dough creations.  Our time was spent in the kitchen preparing simple dishes and baking sweet goodies.  We enjoyed a pesto chicken sandwich, along with a simple cucumber salad.  Baking was
