a reFRESHing Easter

Todays service at church was about starting FRESH experiences - whatever we are experiencing today - bad or great - we can make FRESH. We all have a past that needs forgiveness, or challenges that we can make better.

Happy Easter!

an understood lingo between my husband and I. .. "my honey".

We almost never call each other by our first names.. and when we do, it still shocks me because it doesn't sound right. In fact, when we do, we giggle, and we repeat ourselves and smile.

I personally haven't been able to call Bobby anything else. I never call him 'babe' because he's not a pig (i think of babe of that pink pig i grew up reading about - remember charlotte's web?), I don't use 'sweetheart' because i refer sweetheart to Troy, and 'sweetie' - i often refer to the kids.

Bobby is my honey. And its never just 'honey' but "my honey" - understood by both of us because in return I'm not just his honey, I'm also referred to as "my honey." I know its silly, even a bit crazy.. but I love it.

New year full of hope and changes...

I realized that last year, I spent more time writing about how busy i was than anything else. Boring if you ask me.. yeah, yeah... we are all busy. And nothing new right? This year, I am making more time. Having the quality time with my family. Quality as in enjoying every single minute rather than just running thru them to get things done.

Last year was the fastest year yet! And I can't remember the details until i look back at my pictures. I need this year to be different. I want to remember the details. I want this year to be different...
