I love our 1902 home we purchased more 10 years ago. It is constantly evolving and goes through whatever changes my little heart desires. I love vintage treasures and I'm always on the hunt for them! My hope is that this blog will be a constant scrapbook for my family and home,a place to make new friends and just somewhere to lay out my thoughts,even if they aren't beautiful or inspiring.

Virtual Coffee 3-27

So I had this post in my head for Virtual Coffee today. In it I was going to list all the dumb stuff I did as a teenager. Then I realized I'll have a teen on my hands in about 7 months. I don't want to remember being a dumb teenager. Besides I thought of this Pin from last night:

Pin Via

Isn't that wonderfully true? I need to stay present. Content in this time in life. But memories live on..........

I had my coffee hours ago.Now I'm feasting on my Green tea latte. Sooo yummy! and I drink it from my cool cup that Josie bought me. Today I would tell you my heart is heavy. My cousin's cousin passed away. I didn't know him very well but we had mutual family and attend the same church. He's just my age. It's a sad thing when some one your own age passes away. This takes my mind to losing my cousin Scottie at only 32 a few years back and of course my sister.

Really no matter what my sister is always on my mind. I could be thinking of something simple like grocery shopping and I would think of grocery shopping with her. Or the time we were desperate and fashioned a diaper  out a plastic bag,a maxi pad and duct tape. McGyver would have been proud! I wish she was here with me to laugh about that. I chuckle at the thought. Manda,I miss you so much! No need for duct tape huggies in Heaven but maybe we'll make one again some day. Just for fun. <3

I'm hoping to go see The Avett Brothers in May. I have no one to see them with. I don't know anyone 'in real life' who likes them. This takes me back to the summer of '99. I was very pregnant with Emma and I really wanted to see Hole. Nobody wanted to go with the pregnant chick. I'd put a damper on the fun.But Manda went with me.It was fun.She wasn't afraid to be seen with me and my big belly.........

I have a week few days ahead of me with no plans. Our summer-like weather is gone. What to do? I think I need a new craft. Or maybe I should just get a box of garbage bags and throw away all the clutter these guys here won't miss. Wait,that's probably my stuff ;)
Thanks for listening to me. !!


PS Do you play Draw Something? I'm Nikkimomof4 if you want to start a match.

Thanks for the coffee break. Thanks for sharing, I am sure it is not always easy to wear your heart on your sleeve. Sorry to hear about your cousins, cousin. And your sister. I have one teen and my girl is heading in that direction in a couple years, though her body is fully a woman already at 11...It has been a rough year thus far as she has bloomed overnight is many ways unthinkable. My boy will be 18 this Summer, makes me feel kinda old. I remember being 18 like it was yesterday. Anyhoo, just embrace it all with joy np matter what their age, for it surely does fly by so very fast. Have a wonderful week ahead and hope ya find someone to go see that concert with you. I would if I could...but too far away!!! hugs, mica
