What Could Be Better Than This?

October 18, 2009

As if my life wasn’t already blessed with things that are good and happy, in comes a kitten to make everything even better.

Miette was a five week old rescue kitty. Her sibling had been killed by a truck, and her mother was MIA. Through a lengthy route of various people’s connections, she came to me just before the wedding. Now seven weeks old, she’s growing and playing and running and jumping and biting and, I suspect, loving everything. Adam and I could not be happier to have her part of our new little family.


Destination Disney

October 18, 2009

Having never been on an extended vacation away with just Adam, it seemed our honeymoon was a good time to do that. And having never gone to Disney World, we figured that was a good place to go. And even though it was a heat wave and like a billion degrees, it could not have been more perfectly fun, adventurous, and love-filled. The time spent there one-on-one with my husband was priceless.

Pictures are worth a thousand words, so I’ll let them speak for themselves.
We had a blast.

My Words Are Not Enough

October 11, 2009

Where do I begin?
To tell the story of how great a love can be
The sweet love story that is older than the sea
The simple truth about the love he brings to me
Where do I start?

Like a summer rain
That cools the pavement with a patent leather shine
He came into my life and made the living fine
And gave a meaning to this empty world of mine
He fills my heart

He fills my heart with very special things
With angels’ songs, with wild imaginings
He fills my soul with so much love
That anywhere I go, I’m never lonely
With him along, who could be lonely
I reach for his hand, it’s always there

How long does it last?
Can love be measured by the hours in a day?
I have no answers now, but this much I can say
I’m going to need him till the stars all burn away
And he’ll be there…

-Shirley Bassey
