Day 59

A sweet gift from my baby. The front looks like a cupcake.

"You're my honey bunch, sugar plum, pumpy-umpy-umpkin, you're my sweetie pie. You're my cuppycake, gum drops, snoogems, boogems, you're the apple of my eye."

Day 58

Part of my world.

"Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared." ~Buddah

Day 57

My baby knew I wasn't feeling well today, so I came home to beautiful roses! I am one lucky lady!

"And he repents in thorns that sleeps in beds of roses." ~Francis Quarles

Day 56

We went out tonight for Saville's birthday. It was nice to get out and have fun with friends. We went to a bar called Quincy Magoos, had some great beer, nachoes, and conversation!

"A friend is someone who understands your past, believes in your future, and accepts you just the way you are."

Day 52

So, most apartments give you a lease renewal incentive of monetary value. At our apartment we get nuts. Cashews actually. Oh, and a free carpet cleaning. I guess it's better than nothing, right?

"Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don't."

Day 51

Went to the cemetery with my girlfriend today and took some pictures. It's one of the many things we enjoy doing together. The angels are our favorites.

"We are each of us angels with only one wing, and we can only fly by embracing one another." ~Lucretius

Day 50

Some days I want to be a dog.

"Dogs are really people with short legs in fur coats."

Poor little guy. And I thought I had a bad day! LOL

Day 45

Today I celebrated the second of many Valentines days with my lady love. I love my Angel.

"True love can blind you, but at the same time, if you let it, it can also open your eyes."

Day 44

Today we watched my little 8-year-old brother in law. I helped him write (and "publish") a book, make a robot dog human alien Valentine box, fill out his Valentines for his classmates, and then he voluntarily vaccuumed our house. Aren't little brothers great? ;)

"A little brother is a friend given by nature."

Day 43

The other day my baby left me a sweet note since she didn't think I'd make it home in time from opera practice before she left for work. I didn't get to blog about it that day because I already had another blog, but I still have the note and wanted to share it.

"Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things." ~Robert Brault

"Food has replaced sex in my life, now I can't even get into my own pants."

Day 41

We had a moment of silence to remember Valerie Davis at opera rehearsal today. Bless her and her family and friends.

"If death meant just leaving the stage long enough to change costume and come back as a new character...Would you slow down? Or speed up?" ~Chuck Palahniuk

Day 40

Glad to have Bianca back home. This picture was not intended to look like this, but I liked the oddness of it.

"Patience is something you admire in the driver behind you and scorn in the one ahead." ~Mac McCleary

Day 39

Little Star all bundled up to brave the cold winter's night. We caught her with her hood over her eyes, how cute is that?

"Dogs are better than humans because they know but do not tell." ~Emily Dickinson

Got to see my costume list for the opera today. Getting excited!

My 2 year anniversary with my wonderful girlfriend, now my fiancee. It's our first year engaged, and I couldn't be happier!
