Amazing Weekends

How many things change in a weekend.

Not many of you know, that I am a DIE HARD Steelers fan.


I also love spending the weekend at the beach............In FEBRUARY!

And watching my babies get chased by seagulls on the beach:

That'll teach them to keep Cheez-its in their pockets!

And this great weekend (sorry to all of you buried in snow) took place here:

It was still a bit chilly, but I just don't think any of us felt it.

There are so many facets of beauty. The laughter of children, Making Bob uncomfortable(inside joke) , the color that our worlds are, the genuine smile of true affection. The OYSTERS!~

There is one picture I missed, and it would have been perfect. Yesterday, we went to Seaside (Truman Show was filmed there).............

The day was beautiful. The skies were blue, the water was Emerald and the girls were rolling all over the kelly green grass.

There is a whole lot of stuff to get through in the world, and then one just "get it"..........and move on. Just because the beauty of it gives you the strength to go another day or week or month or year. Sometimes all it takes is that one memory.

And you savor the memory. You smell it, taste it and feel it.

Great post, Michelle. I am a Pennsylvania girl born and bred, so we were rooting for the Steelers.

I've been to Seaside and think it is just gorgeous, if expensive.

You seem happy. That makes me happy.

Hey Babe,

It's me again. The test went well, but at 1 A.M. I woke up sick to my stomach. I worshipped at the porcelain princess the rest of the night. It's a little after 3 here and I am just getting some tea and 1/2 a bagel. I soooo needed to be packing today. Oh well, the Lord knows what I need. I'm sure it will all get done. Maybe since I slept all day, I'll be able to stay up later tonight.

Be happy, sweetie.

I am not a football fan of any team at all, but I am a beach worshipper! The pics looked like such fun with the gull chasing the girls.

And who is the new guy in the pic??? Hmmmmmm.....You look very happy! I am happy for you! How is taylor's eye coming along? I think about her so often and how that much that must have hurt her! Is the BB still lodged in her eye or where did it end up? DOn't mean to sound dumb, but that has bothered me for some time now.

Stay upbeat, my friend! And keep posting for us, too!!!!
