4 In Making Memories/ Personal/ VACAY!!

Keeping It Real #thesearethedays #itsbikinitime

I did it again! I sported a bikini on our Mexican vacay, and despite not being as fit as I’d like to be, I rocked it anyways. Even when Jonah giggled and said *Mom, your tummy looks like a mouth*. #yesihaverolls I don’t have a *perfect* body, and there are still improvements to be made. But it’s mine….my body…and I love it. I love my shape, and the way I look….and I loved finally wearing all my cute bikinis too.…

A Small Fortune…But Worth EVERY Penny. #thesearethedays

You may remember my issues with the OUTRAGEOUS cost of photos from my first experience swimming with the dolphins.

To refresh your memory, she LOVES being there, but HATES going to it. So this year I signed her up like usual, and although she was more positive she still wasn’t excited. When I asked her why, she said: *Well, I just feel like I’ve been there too long* So…

The Pillow #thesearethedays #itssentimental #givingismagical

It started with a patient passing away first thing in the morning. It didn’t matter how many times it happened, I never got desensitized to it. I always take a minute to silently offer warm thoughts to the loved ones. Nobody ever wants to get that call. I mean, the reality is people die. And it isn’t always the shock that people are sad over – it’s simply the loss. No matter whether it was sudden or a long process,…
