Celebrate: Happy Birthday Girl!

Today is my friend Mel's birthday! If you know her you know how great she is and if you don't well you'll have to trust me on this one, she is a gem. To support my point in celebration of her birth here are a few totally important unimportant reasons why I love Mel:
She rocks it out in the car - for real Mel is the worlds best car dancer!
She makes up great words - is there a sound you have made in glee, disappointment or fear? Mel has figured out how to spell it and sent it in a text message or written it on my facebook wall.
When we were young she wrote our own personal young adult fiction serial - our group of girls would go over to her house every few days and she would read aloud the next part of the story. I wish I could remember the name of the characters now.
The story of when we met is really silly - it was just about 20 years ago, Mel came over to my house with a family friend and we became fast friends, we jumped on my bed, we talked about spiders and the rest is history.
She uses words like "Girl" and "Chica"
So please join me and wishing Mel the happiest of birthdays! Love ya chica!

Inspire: September

Every month I pull together a list of my favorite things from around the interwebs to share with you. This is what I'm into this month.

Share: An Open Letter To People Who Can't Stop Talking About Pumpkin Spiced Lattes - I'm telling you on Tuesday morning I woke up and it just felt like fall, and then I read this great post about how there are some people who don't really care for all the love pumpkin spiced lattes and apple orchards get this time of year.

Watch: Breaking Pointe - My favorite reality show set in a ballet company is back on the air and you can catch up on all of season 2 on the CW website.

Give: Make Someone Happy - I've got my own plans in place to spread a little happiness this month!

Live: Olive Us - I love these videos chronicling the lives of this family of 8 living in France.

Read: Divergent - I've just started reading the second book in this dystopian trilogy.

Celebrate: Welcome To The World My Little Love

Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. 10 This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. 11 Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. 12 No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us. 
- 1 John 4: 7-12

Yesterday my newest nephew was born and tonight I'm thinking about love and what I would whisper in his ear if I could be in Virgina holding him close. I would whisper little words of love and hope, I would say something like "I love you, your family loves you and The Lord God Creator and Sustainer of the world loves you, yes you are loved. I hope you have a life full of blessings, that you grow strong and wise, that you find joy in the morning and rest at night and more than that I hope you feel all of this love everyday of your life." it would all be about love, every word, because every person should be born surrounded by love.

Actually if you think about it the unconditional and undeserved love we give babies is a way that we model God's love. For this little person has done nothing for me, yet I would do so much for him, just because I love him. So tonight instead of whispering my words of love in his ear I will pray that my little dear will be surrounded by love all the days of his life and that as he grows he will model God's love by loving others.

Welcome Dietrich I love you, I love you, I love you!

Live: Take Me Out To The Ball Game!

I'm trying to squeeze every last drop out of summer.

Even though this morning I could feel fall, I'm still soaking up the last little bits of summer. Back in mid August, my dear friend Lynn came into town and suggested that a bunch of us head down to a Tiger's game. And it was just a totally great night. Fun friends, yummy food, the seventh inning stretch and some really good baseball.

I think this picture of Emmy sums it all up: It was an awesome day! I mean can't you just hear her yelling "This is AWESOME!"?

Celebrate: Hey, Hey, Hey Happy Birthday!

Today is my mom's brithday. I could tell you a lot of things about my mother, but I think this sums it all up: The world is a better place because she is in it!

P.S. Isn't this a great picture of her with my cousin Barb?

September 2013

Ahhh, I can almost smell Autumn! I took this whole blogging thing kinda slow this summer, but now I'm ready to jump back in full force. To do that I thought I might check another thing off my 30 while 30 list and go ahead and blog everyday during the month of September!

Oh my doesn't that sound like fun. Get ready for play lists of the best Boy Band songs, project details on a handful of baby blankets, link love for my favorite site, a few birthday shout outs and so much more!

Okay here goes nothing, getting this one posted at the very last minute isn't the best sign is it?!
