Summer was....

This has been such a great weekend so far, scrapping Friday night with friends, laughing does the body good. Creating..

Last night my oldest and I went to the craft store. It is amazing how quickly he is growing up. He is actually becoming pretty cool to hang out with.

Today just kinda hanging out so I decided to visit some of my favorite blogs, which is something I usually dont do on the weekends. Today, every blog I visit had a wonderful post or picture, mostly about the end of summer. It is such a bittersweet time. I love the carefree days of summer but also look forward to all the fun things autumn has to offer.. So today I leave you some of what summer was to us. Please leave a comment so I can check out your blog!

Remembering 9-11-01

I know its now the 15th, but I am so behind in everything since losing my hard drive. Living right across the bay from NYC, This day is always hard. The details of that day will always be etched in my mind. The smells, the sights, the emotions. On that day, I almost lost my best and oldest friend. On that day, the town I grew up in lost the most people in NJ. On that day, I realized my husband would be going to war. On that day, all of our lives changed.

My life is so different now than on that beautiful September day. My husband is home and out of the military. I have 2 beautiful boys. But I will never ever forget how I felt that day.

These are pictures from our towns memorial. The beam is actually steel from the WTC.
