This one's for you....


I know you're feeling sad lately about our friendship but don't worry. You are stuck with me forever. And ever!

I am enjoying writing the maid of honor speech. It has really made me reflect on our friendship over the years. Remember when we first met? (Thank you, Jill Hildwine!!). Our first time hanging out....the movies, dinners, tv time. New Year's Eve in your apartment! The infamous cruise. Disneyland. You always being a text or phone call away. Makes me love you!

P.S. My mom loves your buffalo chicken dip and wanted me to tell you that :)


In case you didn't know it is the season of Lent! Typically we all try to give up something. Why? To show we can have sacrifices. I decided to go for something positive this year since-let's face it-I never make it through without cheating! Candy, chocolate, mountain dew have all been prior lenten sacrifices, but this year I went a different route. I wanted to do something good for someone else, each day. ( I really wanted it to be: do something good for someone else, each day, without getting any recognition...but this wasn't really working!! People like to say THANK YOU too much-such a problem, right??).

With the help of my dad, I was able to complete a MASSIVE good deed for our dear friend, Alice. She is such a sweet woman who has seemed to go through so many challenges these past few years. While driving by to check on her house, I noticed how overgrown it was. Enter the thought: I should pull weeds and clean it up for her. I soon realized I couldn't do it on my own. My dad was kind enough to help!!! (Seriously, he did help! No sarcasm in this one!!).

Hours's done. And I have to say, it looks amazing!!
