20 Years

Happy 20th Birthday R1!

You have grown into a man right before my eyes. The years have past so quickly. 

When I look at you, I still see the 2yr old with a head full of curly hair running around in the front yard. 

I also see the 5yr old on the first day of kindergarten and the 10yrs old with braces. I see the 18yr old during his senior year of high school walking across the stage at graduation to receive his diploma and smiling at his accomplishment. 

But I also see the man you’ve become. The one who is half way through his junior year of college. I see the man working hard toward the goals he set for himself and not stopping till they have been achieved. 
I love having a front row seat to your life. You make me so proud. I’m honored God gave you to me. 

I love you and I hope year 20 is everything you want it to be and more!

Happy 2020

It's been a hot minute since I wrote my last blog post back in October. Well maybe not a minute but it sure feels that way. 

Baseball season ended with my beloved Astros making it to World Series but losing to the Nationals in 7 games. It was heartbreaking to watch and to listen to Joe Buck's one sided announcing, if you want to even call it that. And even thought our ball club is being picked apart in the office season, I still love my 'Stros.

Then of course November hit and I got just a bit excited about the upcoming holiday season and put our Christmas trees up in the house the first weekend in November. The man cave tree took about 3 hours, the living room tree, it took a week. And now you know why the process begins when it does. R1 said our house looked bi-polar when you walked in, Fall decor still out and the Christmas trees up and decorated. 

We had family over for Thanksgiving and we ate to much and laughed a lot. Once Thanksgiving was over the parade of Christmas parties began. I told Hubs I really wanted to be in the moment of the holiday season/reason and be intentional with our time so even though we were invited to 5 parties, we only attended one. 

Next thing I knew it was Christmas break. See I told you a hot minute. 

Two glorious weeks of no school or schedule. We stayed up way to late, had a ton fun, and of course ate way to much again. I really enjoyed my time with family.

And now here it is January 2020. I was glad to see 2019 go and I'm hoping 2020 is full of blessing. 

Happy New Year!
