Family is Everything

This is my family.  Ours has its moments.  Our family has its crazy and dysfunctional.  But amidst anything and everything, there's loyalty and unconditional love.  A special bond of love holding us all together.  Moments with each other are sweeter, lighter and funnier than ordinary moments. The opposing differences, unique personalities, and varying family backdrop are what balance us and provides stability.  Our souls are restored and healed by the love of this family.

This is my family.  This is it.  Everything.

Strolling through Gardens

On a sun filled day in November, we gathered a picnic and made our way to Norfolk Botanical Gardens to stroll and take in a little nature.  We had no destination in mind but merely wanted to explore.  Senseless wanderings amidst the glorious gardens!

In years past, I have been known as a Halloween scrooge.  I loathed Halloween.  My house was the dark house on the street.  Not a single light on in the house.  All the while, I'm camped out in the dark cursing the frolicking children on the street.  On a few occasion, I contemplated opening the door and letting Riley (aka Cujo) attack the little ghouls and goblins.
