***This was written to post on Sunday, my Uncle's actual birthday, but our DSL line got struck by lightening, so I am a couple of days late. I think he would understand. Miss you Uncle Greg!***
This is my Uncle Greg. I called him Uncle, but he was more like a father to me. Nurturing, loving, unconditional, steadfast. You get the idea. Uncle Greg passed away in April due to a very cruel and hard battle with cancer. He was so brave and was so determined to beat it. But he was called home to heaven. I know he is playing golf right now on the most beautiful golf course that would put Pebble Beach to shame. I wish I could be with him on that golf course. But until we meet again Uncle Greg, always know that you will forever be in my heart. Happy Birthday! I love you and miss you so much.

Oh my word. Will and I were feeling a bit adventurous and decided to sign up for a Yogalates class at the gym. Well, it began today, and I don't know if either one of us will be able to walk later. Wow. I have seen people do Yoga and Pilate's on TV, but have never actually see first hand someone doing a headstand or back bend. I mean, there was a man in our class, probably in his 70's, doing the majority of the poses. While I on the other hand sat at stared in admiration of him. Impressive. I was also quite pleased when the instructor turned off the lights. Praise the Lord! Will and I were joking around at the beginning of classes, "He he he, this is our type of class". Boy were we naive. This was definitely a bonding experience for Will and I. He must really love me because he never once laughed at me, and there were ample opportunities to do so. I can't say for sure if we will return on Thursday for the next class, but we did enjoy ourselves today. Namaste!

Here is a picture of one of my best friends since 6th grade. She just had her 2nd baby boy, Jackson Grant, on Monday and I was fortunate enough to be able to be there to share in the moment. God is so good! Congratulations Sandi. I love you!

Okay, I ran across an article that literally makes me jump for joy. I found out that.... chocolate is a vegetable! Praise the Lord! Who knew? I do know that I will have no problem now meeting my recommended daily servings of "vegetables". Let's all give a big shout out for chocolate....the worlds best vegetable. It may not be green and leafy, but it is mmm mmm good. For those of you who think this is to good to be true, here's the article. Check it out for yourself.

Today Will and I celebrate our 7th wedding anniversary. Where has the time gone? Seems just like yesterday we were saying "I do" in Montego Bay, Jamaica. Now, seven years later, three states later, and two beautiful girls later life couldn't be better. I have been so blessed to have been given a wonderful husband who loves me uncondionally. Will is a wonderful husband and father. He has to be the hardest working man I know, and does it all for his family. Thank you Will for seven wonderful years. May there be 70 more. I was going to attach a picture of Will and I, but I can't seem to find any. This makes me a little sad, but more aware that I need to get from behind the camera and take some of just the two of us. Will did send me flowers at work yesterday. A dozen long stem red roses. Perfect! I was truly surprised. I don't remember the last time I got flowers. Thank you Will. I love you!
