Roller Skates...Lots of Love

So..yesterday, we took a bunch of kids from work to the zoo, and then had a BBQ lunch and fun at the park.

Just as all the kids and staff went into the zoo, I went out to my car to take all the food up to the grill.

As I was walking out...I pass this cute old couple...a nice lady in a huge sun hat, and about 10-15 feet behind her is her hubby, hunched over, with a cane, and has a camera around his neck, she smiles and me, nods her head and then looks at him with a smirk on her face and says, "Well geez Charles, I should get you a pair of roller skates and then I could just pull you on behind me." He found it amusing, as did I.

This got me thinking...these people have probably been together since they were 18 years old, probably a good 50-55 years, and they are still so much in love that even though he can barely walk, and is probably just about that far behind her on a daily basis, he goes with her to the zoo to enjoy a beautiful sunny day.

It definitely puts things into perspective. I think we all do things for the people that we love, some things that we probably wouldn't do on our own....but we do it..because we love them..and want to spend time with them no matter what we are doing.

I am thankful every day for my fantastic family, my amazing friends and my fabulous fiance. I hope to be this lucky and this happy forever!

Time to BRAG-Tulaloo

I always like to brag about my super talented friends. All of my friends are talented in very very different ways, and I love them all so very much.

I'd like to take a moment to thank one of the very best- Jessica Creter. Besides being one of my best friends she is also an amazing artist. Jessica is from Tulaloo (a great little stationary studio!) and has created the most amazing wedding invitations for my wedding. I could not have done it better myself. I actually had chills when I opened the sample and could not stop smiling all day. Check out her website at www.tulaloo.com and then check out her etsy shop and you will notice my fantastic woodland invitations. (it's even more exciting to see the initiations for sale!!)

I know there are people out there who are checking out my blog frequently...so please, pass along the website address to your friends and give Jess all the business she can handle!

Thanks Jess!
