Keeping It Positive

My life seems perfect, and it is... mostly.
Most of you reading this are very VERY happy for John and I and know how deserving we are of each other and our life.
There are always crabs in the bucket, no matter how you try to live a simple peaceful life, there are those who want to drag you down.
Is it too much to ask to be left alone?
Yes.  The answer is YES.
I say something about "X", people turn it around to say I was saying it about "Y". "X" made me mad, very mad, I vented, in a place where "X" cannot see. (And "X" if you read this, I'm still mad at you! lol but have a great vacation anyway and let's start where we left off... except no yelling!)  I wish "Y" was not so offended by it, as it had nothing to do with them.
Social media, while I am thankful for it, and I will not give it up because I stay in touch with all my dear friends and family, is a pain in the ass sometimes!

I have been blogging for over a year now and have gotten support from many of our friends a long the way.
Recently it seems that daily many new people saying how much they love my blog and that it is so inspirational.
And thank you.
To all of you.
When I started my blog I wanted it to be a very positive place.
I try to keep my entire life that way and always having the blog in mind may actually help keep my life positive since I am always keeping it in mind to keep the readers happy and since I enjoy it so much.

For all of you that have seen the journey on the blog or have known us and our journey, I am sure you know we have come a long way.
And we are finally right where we have wanted to be.

I hope you have also noticed that in the tough times we have always sought the joy.
Getting here was definitely a journey.
Life is a journey.

I remember once when my Grandmother came to visit Mummy and they drove to St. Simons Island, slept and drove back to Atlanta. This is about a 5 or 6 hour drive.
I asked mummy why would she even bother, that it didn't make sense to go and not even have that much time there.
Her response what I live true to till this day.
She, with her vibrant personality replied, "Because it is the journey, not the destination!"

I thought about this.
And she is right.
We will all always have goals, dreams, obstacles on this journey, but what is the point if you cannot enjoy it all on the way?
I have realized that life is always a journey.
We are at that place where we have wanted to be.
Now that we are here we talk about what we want our next destination to be.
On the way there we will enjoy every moment of the journey.

To find happiness you have to have happiness.

Beautiful Baby Shower

This past weekend was our baby shower!!  We decided to do it a bit early because I am one of those over-organized, over-prepared types.  It was hosted by my best friend Kindle and my sister Bianca.

I told Kindle I wanted a slight winter wonderland pink theme since it is so close to Christmas and this is what I walked in to!
It was absolutely beautiful, and we were joined by all our best family and friends, we appreciate everyone that made this such a special day for us.

 This game was to guess how big I was and believe it or not the winner was Ethan!!
He definitely knows his Mummy!
 The chocolate diaper game. (It was Johns first shower, he must've thought we were all crazy).
 Getting ready for presents!! (The boys got to open them all).
 Kindle surprised the boys with a gift each.
It was a shirt with their picture saying "I'm the biggest Brother" and "I'm the big Brother" for the hospital.
Most thoughtful thing ever!!!
I wish I could relive this day over and ov…

Christmas 2016

I can honestly say that I miss blogging.  Facebook "memories" option has made me realize how nice it is to be able to look back at our family life and adventures.

I will (eventually) try and get caught up on the past few months, because we all know that I have photographed each and every moment, but for now I will start with Christmas.

We started shopping later than normal but managed to get everything done with time to spare to relax and enjoy the season.

Mummy came from England, I did not realize it but this is only her first Christmas with Amalia!  We spent the day with great family friends, Peter, Debbie and their family.  It has been a tradition for many years to do Christmas and/or Thanksgiving with them.

As per usual we had Santa Jeaux come and visit along with all the kids friends.  It was such a nice reunion not only with our friend Santa, but the kids miss their friends dearly it is always a great occasion to get them together again.  I appreciate all the other m…

Our Garden

I have promised the kids that once spring came around we can plant a garden since in our top back yard we have 2 big beds.
It was s a lot of work to clean out the beds it was full of debris that took us a long time to sift out, but it was oh so worth it!

I wish I had before and after pictures to show you just how bad it was, but I didn't think about it because I was in full on mission mode.

We still need to plant the second bed, it has been a bit rainy, and to be completely honest I am terrified of worms, caterpillars and snakes.

My community Facebook page has been posting about copperheads everywhere so I am hyper paranoid when I am out there, but I hope to get around to it soon!
