15th Wedding Anniversary

Dear Diary,
Yesterday we celebrated our 15th anniversary.  Companionship is comforting.  Jeff and I have grown together over the years.  We continue to learn how to work with one another.  We enjoy each other, laugh, have inside jokes, help each other keep perspective and love our family dearly.  We have 4 wonderful kids, God in our lives and lots of love in our home.  I am so grateful to live my life with him.  He's loving, loyal and a wonderful father.  I thank God everyday for what we've built together and look forward to many more beautiful years!

Something To Sea

This morning I drove to the steps
The beautiful steps by the sea
I listen to the waves crash
It's a wonderful song to me

The water is cold and blue
The air is crisp and bright
I love the way it feels
In the day and in the night

Sometimes I bring Gigi
Sometimes I bring Van
Sometimes it's just me
Alone in the sand

This place is Redondo Beach
A special place to me
A place I call home
A charming place by the sea

Josette's 14!

Dear Diary,
My baby is 14!  Everyone says time goes by so quickly... and it's true!  Josette is so many things.  She's beautiful, smart, kind, fun and creative.  Josette has always been our little pack leader.  She's an awesome daughter and a great example to her sisters and brother.  I love watching her grow and handle life's challenges with grace.  She's an amazing girl and I'm so proud to say she's mine.  I love you JoJo to the moon and back and back again!

Wine Tasting in Santa Ynez

Dear Diary,
We celebrated Sherry and Missy's birthdays wine tasting in Santa Ynez.  We played slots at Chumash Casino and visited Sunstone, Brander and Roblar Wineries.  We had the best dinner at Root 246 in Solvang, danced at Mavericks and caught up on all the happenings of our busy lives.  Couldn't ask for anything more... beautiful weather, big winnings, best friends and great memories.  Let's make it a tradition and do it again next year!
