Out and about

Well, we made it out of the house yesterday for most of the day. Went to sausalito for some most delicious clam chowder at fish. Then we went over to visit Jessica post eye surgery. Hung out with her and her mom and mikey. All in all it was nice to get off the ship and be social. Even if it was freeeezing! I think today might be a good day for the movies. Let's see if I can convince the Finn. Toddles.

Of walking again. Looks like it's gonna be awhile till that happens without crutches or big black special boots. Trying to think positively but, i have had my moments. We have a trip planned to Amsterdam and Paris in early April. I will be walking. I will be walking. I will be walking.

The most magical place. What a great time we had. I can't wait to go back. As I sit here on this ship ( I've decided that's my new approach to being stuck at home. I'm pretending I'm on a ship going to a land far far away). I am reminded what great memories we made and just how blessed I am. For so long Peter and I resisted going on a tropical island type of vacation. Then Peter had to go for work so we decided to make a trip out of it. Three weeks in Hawaii and a lifetime is changed. The first two weeks we spent in kauai at this most magical house on the beach. We swam everyday, made delicious food, read a ton, laughed a ton and smiled from our hearts. Cheesy I know, but so true. I guess I'm a Hawaii lover now. Xoxo

Sometimes we get tested in life. Right now I'm being tested in many ways. Today it's been two weeks since I severely sprained my ankle. Happy anniversary! Ha. It's been a challenge to let go and not be in charge. I guess that's part of this test. So far I think I'm passing. I guess the real test will be once I am better if I take something away from this experience. One thing I've really gotten out of this is how amazing my family and friends are. Especially my husband. He has really Taken the best care of me. From making my doctors appointments to helping me in and out of the shower to making sure the world is ok for devon.He's truly the best. Hopefully this test will be over soon. I'm ready to taste test macaroons in Paris already. Now that's a test I look forward too!

Thank the lord for giving me my mother. It's been so nice having her here. I know Peter and Riley love her being here too. She's been cooking up a storm. The most delish food ever. I wish she never had to leave. Well, maybe my wish should be that she lived in the same town. You know what they say "be careful what you wish for".

Cheers to the best mom ever! I love you so much.

This guy is the greatest guy period. He's truly the best. He loves big, he makes big funnies, he barks big and he has the best big nose ever! He's our rinney hinny ho, our p.j., our detective, our kissing monster, our wiggle, our riley and he's definitely our heart.

On my birthday I decided to head out to Stinson beach. It was the most perfect day ever! The weather outdid itself. Never before have I seen it so clear. I love days like this. Especially in the middle of winter. Its like a sneak peak into the future. A reminder that there is so much to look forward to. Today's weather is the opposite of this day. It's cold, rainy and dark. Not for long though!

Colors and patterns

My happiness depends on the fact that I'm surrounded by tons of colors and patterns. I'm constantly adding and changing the colors and patterns in my surroundings. For a long time I was obsessed with everything pink and green but now I'm going thru a blue and burnt orange phase. This all became apparent when I ordered a robins egg blue couch for the tv room. When we got home from the furniture store I was like "wow that color selection was so random". Then as I looked at the swatch I had of our newly selected sofa in the intended room, I realized it wasn't random at all. There were more then six places where that color appeared. Mostly on the needlepoint wall. So I guess I had a new favorite color without even realizing it. Pretty trippy huh? Totally dude.So now I have to just sit and wait and see what other colors claw their way to new favorite. Just kidding. It is kinda funny though to imagine colors competing to be our favorite color.
