Ever start the day like this...
Kinda sad, a little blue & nothing is going your way.
Well that was me this morning. 
 Thankfully, I found my way out from under the rain cloud and had a do nothing sort of day.

Don't underestimate the value of Doing Nothing, 
of just going along, listening to all the things you can't hear, 
and not bothering. ~Winnie the Pooh

Doing nothing on our scooters, 

Just going along,

Listening to happiness,

And not bothering.

Really how can you have a bad day 
when you stop and count all of the blessings that are smiling right at you!

Sharing our wonderful Do Nothing Day at these fun parties.

instafriday- Valentine's Edition

I love Valentine's Day...

Flowers are nice.

Candy is always good.

One year I even got an ipod.
This year the gift was time spent alone together.
and when you have three kids being alone is rare.

I love this picture, we were head over heels in love!
Talk on the phone until 3am, midnight drive by's with my girlfriends (stalking), wear his football sweatshirt to bed every night in love.

This was our 16th Vanentine's Day! We have been together for a long time.
I am not going to lie and say they were all amazing, I mean he totally forgot one year. 
But this year it was great, we had a such a wonderful time.

Betwixt and Between Love

 We have grown up together and I wouldn't have it any other way.
I can't wait to grow old with my guy.
For me time together is the best gift.

Timeless Love

Happy late Valentine's Day!

What is it about the carousel that sends me right back to my childhood? 
I don't know if it is the music or the lights? 
The feel of going up and down while being pulled in a circle? 
The sweet horses covered in paint and jewels?

We have been on a few, me and the kids. Like this one at Griffith park in Los Angeles.

It goes really fast and it doesn't have seat belts.
The operator told me that Walt Disney took his Niece and Nephew there and that is where he got the idea for Disneyland. I didn't check the facts and I really like believing that this is the truth. 
So, please don't burst my bubble.

This one is from Balboa Park in San Diego. Not as great as Griffith Park, but still old and a little bit rickety. It has a great bell sound that starts the ride, too.

Here we are on the Disneyland Carousel. We like to name our horses and pretend that they will jump off of the platform at any second, just like in Marry Poppins. 

     So...what is your favorite ride?
