The BIG 3-0!

What matters most in life is often viewed as peripheral to the things that we usually focus on. Passion takes a backseat to production, wellness to working, and balance to busyness. The old adage that "life is not a dress rehearsal" is so true, and yet we act to the contrary by putting off what is truly important or indulging in things that are not.

I vow on my 30th Birthday (TODAY, April 28th!) to not focus so much on my age, but to meditate on my life at this exact moment. I hope in this next year to reshuffle my priorities. Spend more time with family and friends, take care of my body and health by exercising more and eating nutritious food, and to offer to help those in need.

My mom says that the 30's were the best years of her life and I hope that rings true for me too! Thank you to my wonderful family for a fun birthday celebration!
My motto for this year:
"Don't just count your years, make your years count. "

Easter Weekend

We had a wonderful and busy Easter weekend! It was so nice to have a 3-day weekend. It was much needed for me! Eric, unfortunately, had to work, so Gage and I spent Friday with some good friends from out of town. We met at good ole' Joe T. Garcia's in Fort Worth, then we headed to their Lake House in Granbury for some R&R, but stopped to enjoy the bluebonnet's first.

Saturday we joined the neighborhood for an Easter egg hunt and to meet the Easter bunny! Gage LOVED picking up eggs, but was not very fond of the Easter bunny as you can see from the picture below! Priceless!
Saturday night we went to Easter service and then stopped by Grammy and Grampy's house for dinner. On Sunday, we went to Momo and Popo's house to eat some yummy enchiladas! Gage was so excited to see his cousin Max. He absolutely LOVES Max who is 6 years old. He copies EVERYTHING that Max does. He is Max's little shadow. It is so cute! I had fun playing with the boys and being silly. I am the SILLY Aunt! By the end of the afternoon, they were both tuckered out on the living room floor!
We ended our weekend with a trip to the pond to feed the ducks - Gage's favorite thing to do right now! He loves throwing the bread and quacking like a duck! And the duck's like him too! When they see us coming, they run TOWARD us! Surprising that ducks have a memory!
We hope that you had a lovely Easter weekend and remember what this time is all about! HE has Risen!
