Some random facts about me; I hate to write. I can't spell. I never journal. So, why blog? Well, as many of you know or will soon come to know, my life has taken quite the turn in the past months. My heart is on the mends, although, will never be completely whole again. Therefore, I am constantly looking for ways to comfort this ache. Over these past months, reading other blogs exclaiming stories about life, death, random facts, daily encounters and simple pleasures, have somehow tended to my aching heart and have allowed me to experience small moments of joy. Blogging has allowed our world to capture a small (although sometimes quite large) glimpse into another ones life, creating a thrill that is addictive and slightly contagious! My blog will hopefully nurture that thrill in hopes to offer you a 'front row seat' into my journey through this crazy experience called, life. Life, in the essence of what gives, breaths and sustains. Maybe my blogging will one day attribute to caring for another ones aching heart.

tis the season

Just a few pics from the past few weeks...

Yes, we managed to find ourselves back at the good 'ol Home Depot once again this year.  You just can not beat a $20 tree!  Maybe next year we will find ourselves venturing out for the 'cut your own tree' adventure... 

 The 2nd, and what has become annual, Bender Christmas cookie baking day!





 Happy Birthday to one very special Nanna!  Such a fun weekend celebrating this very special person in our lives...



more to come...
