I'm Back!

Hey friends!  I'm not sure if anyone is even checking this blog anymore, but if you are, I thought I'd write a little blip today!  My kids and I just got back from a 4-day trip to NYC, and it was amazing!  I love the city, and the memories it holds for me from my childhood as a dancer.  My kids had never been, so this was a first for them.  My daughter really enjoyed it - my son, not so much, but at least they were exposed to it, right?  Life is good in my little world - my job at Thirty-One is more than I could ask for.  I am so blessed to be a part of this amazing company!  Kids are good - both teenagers, and doing their "thing"......Aaron remains the best thing that has ever happened to me outside of giving birth to my kids!  He's so patient and kind and loving....all the qualities that I admire in a man.  Ok, gotta run!  Off to a meeting........

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hello friends! I know I haven't posted anything in quite some time, but I wanted to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving, and let you know that I will try to post more in the very near future! Life has kept me so busy this year! My new career has been such an inspiration to me - the ability to celebrate, encourage, and reward women for all they do, and all they are to so many - does it get any better than that? I think not! My fiance' has been such a positive light in my life, and has confirmed to me that we should all surround ourselves with people who lift us up, not bring us down. My kids are turning 12 and 13 today and tomorrow, and are such a blessing to me each and every day.....even though the teen and pre-teen years are challenging my patience already! My parents are healthy; my grandparents on my Dad's side are still alive, though my Grandma, barely. I just have so much to be thankful for! Oh, and don't 3 dogs, 2 cats, 2 fish, and turtle, who are all "for the kids", but let's face it, are taken care of BY ME!!! I am blessed! Let me share this quote with all of you today......."What if you woke up today with only the things you thanked God for yesterday?" Deep, huh? Have a great holiday!!
