time flies, enjoy the ride...

from this....



to this...



in the blink of an eye!

friday night the grad banquet was awesome. loved watching them all dressed up and enjoying being together. of course the boys were ready to party asap! the parents came together and it was great. I knew the day would come. I wanted it to happen. for him. and it finally did. and it couldn't have been better.

saturday night I attended a surprise baby shower at treasured memories for anam. a weekend that started with the end of high school and into the celebration of a new life.

I love pregnant women. can I just say that? love their beauty. the glow of their skin. anam was glowing and so beautiful. just think about it for a minute. a new life inside her that she is nurturing and holding till the day of arrival into this big beautiful world. how kewl is that? maybe it is because I have one child and thought I would have more. I enjoyed my pregnancy and loved being pregnant. I just wish I would have stopped and lived more in the moment and appreciated it. I was at a rough time in my life. I did what I had to do to make it. one day at a time. I guess that is why when I see new mom's I remind them to enjoy every single second. it flies by and it is precious. enjoy the bumps along the road.

dan said "what now?" "school is over and then what?" he has no immediate plans to attend school or travel so I think he kind of felt lost. I told him to look at it as a new beginning. HIS life and how he will now carve his own path. whatever he decides to do he will do with passion. I love the man he has become and am confident that this next step in his life will be a RIDE! enjoy it dan!
