We are off on another weekend getaway with the Garahan’s! This time we are going camping. I’ve definitely warmed up to the whole idea of paying to sleep in the dirt since the first time I camped with Brian in Big Sur a few years ago. This will be my third time camping (last year we did Mammoth with Mike & Loni). This weekend we choose a campground a little closer to home and are heading to Ojai. Considering camping was on Brian’s “summer to do list” I know he’s very excited about the next few days. Surprisingly, I’m actually looking forward to it too. Nothing better for the soul then a little nature, right?

what inspired me this week?

I saw the movie “Boyhood” and simply loved it! Such a beautiful and poetic film. I think Richard Linklater is a genius

 “Things don’t happen to you- they happen for you”

this quote…”Two things define you. Your patience when you have nothing, and your attitude when you have everything.” – unknown

what am I grateful for this week?

the arrival of baby Liam

Erin Haslag for letting me know about the brilliant website Skillshare. What an amazing resource. I’ve already watched a bunch of online classes on photography. love

what surprised me this week?

when I received a bill from my the surgeon who performed my gallbladder surgery for 63,000….yes 63,000!! After I had a full blown panic attack, I called his office, only to learn that they had made a mistake and forgot to include my insurance. I actually owe 0…yes 0. Seriously, they could have killed me!

Liam

29 Jul

My best friend, Taline gave birth to her baby boy, Liam on Friday. I know….I know…babies are born everyday but his arrival really pulled at my heart-strings. Probably because Taline and I have been best friends since the 7th grade (oy! that’s twenty years!) and she’s like a sister to me. We’ve stood by each others side through so many ups and downs (OH….and the stories we have on each other…we are taking those to the grave!). I seriously trust her with my life. She’s such a beautiful human being and now I can safely say she’s a beautiful mama. I’m looking forward to standing by her side in this exciting new journey.

Brian and I spent Saturday afternoon visiting with the new family at the hospital. Man, that little Liam stole my heart. He’s beyond precious- so teeny tiny and absolutely perfect. He made my ovaries hurt! HA.

Welcome to the world Liam! You got very lucky in the parental department!
