My Life in Photos

Last weekend, my sister-in-law became a bride-to-be!  Congratulations to Ana and Adam; I am so excited to watch your wedding come together and celebrate your love next fall!

Appropriately, Mia and I came across this rope on the marina in Georgetown on a walk.  Love is in the air...

 Mia got a new friend this week, a cute little stuff squirrel.  She's been carrying it around the apartment and cuddles with it at night; I think they call that 'sleeping with the enemy.'

Of course, she also sleeps next to JP, and he is hardly an enemy.
She's allowed on the bed when we want to sleep in on the weekends.  It's hard to say no to such a cute face!

This is one of my awesome birthday gifts from JP.  Now, this is going to be a slightly long caption.
There is a store in Georgetown (Charm) that fills its windows with these great statement necklaces that catch my eye every time we walk past.  I've never considered myself an earthy jewelry person, but I recently I caught myself ogling some gorgeous stone pieces.  JP presented this wrapped gift to me, and said, 'I know you'd never get something like this yourself because you don't see yourself as a certain type of woman.  I think you just the type of confident woman to pull this off.'  I was a happy teary mess when he pulled this beautiful necklace out and put it on my neck; who doesn't want to hear that your partner sees the aspects of you that are hidden away, and pulls them to the forefront?  I'd always said that JP brings out the best version of myself, and here he is proving it. 
This is not a special day, no anniversary to celebrate, but I'm so glad I've spent the last 80 months loving this man. 


  1. That last part made me teary mess. Love you and that necklace!


  2. Love is definitely in the air -- Ana and Adam, Mia and her squirrel, you and JP -- and even your old grandma so happy to have her beloved back home after a very long trip to Asia!! Oh yes, love the necklace too!! XXX - G'ma
