Full Moon Tonight

Tonights full moon is gorgeous!

Astronomers say that this is the first time in almost 20 years that the moon has been this close to earth... making it look about 30% larger than normal. Even though I'm not feeling very good I had to take the opportunity to capture this... I'll be almost 50 before it happens again!!

These are un-edited... just playing with shutter speed...
who am I kidding. 
I hardly know how to upload pics in photoshop, let alone edit them! haha 


and some stars too.... it is a beautiful night.

Blog Day of Silence for Japan

I know that having a blogging day of silence doesn't help Japan, but I also know that it brings awareness and hopefully prayers to this devastated country. We are praying for you Japan.

Dear 28,

I've gotten some super sweet birthday wishes today thanks to bestie posting this tear-jerker on her blog.
She is so amazing and always makes special occasions so.... well, special.
I spent the majority of the day with her and my favorite baby/big boy just tooling around Atlanta.
We ate at Yeah Burger, and visited Goodwill, Paper Source, and some other cutie-pie shops.
Ate cake and opened presents, played with puzzles and talked.
Felt like a pretty great start to my 29th year.

Tonight is dinner with the hubs, tomorrow dinner with my parents, bro & sil, then celebrating sweet baby/big boy Aiden's 2nd birthday on Saturday and a special night out. It is going to be a great birthday weekend and gorgeous weather too!

Even with all this amazingness around me, I have to admit, I've been really struggling with turning 29. It is and feels so much more like why.dont.we.have.a.kid.already than 28 did. Deep down inside I know that 29 is going to be fine and I just need to get over myself.

maybe getting all this out will help...

Dear year 28,
I freakin' loved you. You were such an amazing year. Because of you I am a stronger, more loving, more confident woman. You helped me to become a better wife, a better friend, a better daughter and just a better person all around. I am so thankful for all the lessons I have learned and all the amazing experiences you have given me.

Please tell 29 to be good to me. To keep me happy, healthy, and so very much in love. Tell 29 that I'm sorry if I'm rude at first... I just need to get to know her better, that I'm scared and I'm needy.

I miss you already...



& Happy St. Patrick's Day to everyone!
Hope you are having a great day!

It's also Heather's Birthday from
you should stop by and say HI if you can!
