Well. This summer was wonderful for me. I am not sure I have ever had a better summer to tell you the truth. I am sure there are some great summers from my childhood and the summer i turned 23 was fantastic...but overall, I think this summer might have been my best ever.

Many fun things happened during the last 3 mos. Kids were relaxed, healthy and happy. I had lots of time to redecorate, clean out old clutter, relax, read, be creative, and spend time with the kids in a stress-free environment. But the best thing that happened to me was my shift in attitude.

I have written many times about my daughter Hailey, and her coaches who have taught her that "perception is reality" and that believing you can do it is the WHOLE battle. I have had many talks with my kids about that thought and how true I think it is. Funny thing though....I believed it was true for them and not for me.

This summer, I finally decided that it was time for me to be a better role model. This summer, I decided that what you perceive has HUGE impacts on your body, your health, your family, your life. I read a lot of books about living in the moment and embracing each daily journey and somewhere along the reading ride...something shifted. I felt it on the inside. Colors were brighter, food tasted better, my kids seemed to sparkle.

After many months of thinking marriage was just not for me...ever again....

I bought a wedding dress. And I am gonna wear it next fall when I marry my honay in front of our close friends and family. Never say never. Cause IMPOSSIBLE = NOTHING.

(and yes that is the exact dress I bought...right up there :)

My Maddy

She's a whirling, twirling ball of light. A pure flash of lightening (as Tori would say).
She quickly and gently pulls you into her vortex, shares some cool spirits, and releases you with little delay.
When I tell her, "I can't keep up!" She says, "Walk faster and I will wait for you."
When I tell her, "Be CAREFUL!" She says, "Mom, I'm safe in my soul."
When I tell her, "I love you sweet, sweet girl!" She says, "Well I love you with ALL of my heart today."
(and i believe her)

Come what may,
I hope she'll always say...

"I'm not living my life in no bubble."
