A Blessed Year

2006 was a personal best. Let’s do a photo round-up, shall we?


I am so thankful to live in a such a beautiful place with a wonderful husband and a truly amazing baby boy.


I am thankful for my loving, supportive family and friends. I am also thankful that starting next week, I will be living my life as a SAHM to little Wito.


But most importantly, I am thankful that despite my world turning upside down as a new mother, my fantasy football team STILL made it to the playoffs. Don’t even try to mess with THE DONGERS!

Happy New Year!

    From one SAHM to another – SpongeBob Squarepants is on TV fourteen times a day. I swear. But do not turn the television on, unless your need is dire. The temptation to see what’s been happening since you watched it in high school on The Young & The Restless is great.

    We listen to the radio, sing a lot of songs, read a lot of books, and go on a lot of walks. It’s super fun! Congratulations on your decision and good luck!!

    Happy New Year!
