Man, O Man, have I been busy!

But I’ve put my busy-ness aside today because…..

So let’s get started right away with huggin’ out the first blessing I’d like to give thanks for!

#ilovetoentertain!

Life in Color!

As 2016 begins our family prepares for a full year of celebrations!

There will be bridal showers, baptisms, a daughter’s wedding, a golden birthday for me, and Cuppycake & I will celebrate 30 fun-filled years together.

And this is just in our immediate family of five! You cann0t imagine all the other hap-happiness that will be celebrated in our extended families as well!

Through all the party-planning to be done, surprisingly Cuppycake has become sentimental on me!  It’s not uncommon, in the last several months, to receive an endearing photo instagrammed or emailed to me with a sweet or funny message.

 

 

I am loving his out-reaches to remind me just why & HOW we have thrived, (or is it survived??? Giggles.) happily together. And admittedly all of this has been great…until these types of photos started showing up!!

 


Yes, I know I am about to enter the golden years with him, while celebrating 30 wonder-filled years together but seriously…WE ARE NOT READY FOR MATCHING JERSEYS (yet!)

I mean we are still living life ‘in color’ not black & white!

How Cuppycake sees us in 20 years.

 

Plus we still have a hop, skip, and a 36-inch box jump left in us!! (With of course a lot of giddy-up and go behind it…or a tidge of liquid courage.)

“What is all of this about??” I queeried.
“Well, we ARE grand-parents now.” he reminds me.  “Growing older together has officially become inevitable.”

He’s got me there.

And so I do what I usually do. I follow his lead, I trust his wisdom, as head of our home, and I become sentimental along with him.

 

I just haven’t broken it to him yet that we’ll be doing ALL of what growing older together entails….

IN COLOR!!!!

 

How I see us in 20 years.

 

hugs & color-filled blessings!


chewin’ on bread together!

My reblog for today will have a slightly different appearance because this particular blog comes from a different hosting-site but I wanted to expose her to you because I know you will absolutely LOVE her darling site!

The name of this site is New Beginnings, Loving & Living Life after Retirement & is written by Karen, who is a fun-spirited woman enjoying retired life to its fullest!  Her side-kick-retired-too-husband is an adorable added dimension to several  of her posts!

I am sure, if you are anything like me, you will enjoy reading & visually partaking in all the many activities and explorations she shares with her reader!  And as she invites you into her personal space and expeditions during this new Chapter of Life she is embracing you will naturally expect to be sat down in a chair, with a slice of zucchini bread to share, as you spend the time chewing away together!!

Here’s one of my recent favorites you will find:
