Mr. Ethan....age 8 indulging his mama taking a picture on my birthday.
This is what 52 looks like!  Had a lovely birthday.  Jaime had to work, Ethan had school, but I went and pampered myself to a pedicure, splurged on my favorite lunch, Panera, and enjoyed a lot of conversation from family that called.  Amazing that I'm 52...some days I feel it, and others I'm amazed that I'm that old but feel so young on the inside.

It's that easy now!

It has been forever....and lots of stories to catch up...don't know if I ever will! But blogging can be hard...or just this easy...from my cell phone while I sit here watching Ethan eat a corndog! Maybe this is the way to go!
