Halloween party

We are going to a Halloween party Friday night. There's going to be costumes, prizes, games, music, raffles, family, friends and fun!

I think I've only ever been to one other costume party before, so I'm excited to dressed up. But this isn't just any Halloween party. It's a fundraiser too. What a great idea don't ya think?

And what is the fundraiser for you ask?

It's for a couple who dreams of becoming parents and have been struggling for way too long.

It's an IVF fundraiser for My Love and I...(as if you couldn't figure that out).

I know. A.Maz.Ing.

We are so lucky. Blessed. Honoured. Loved. Thankful. Humbled. Excited.

I'm pretty sure we have the best family and friends ever!

Happy Birthday to me

It's my birthday and I'll cry if I want to!

Yes that's right. This girl is 37. Really. I know. Hard to believe. I don't look my age. I don't act my age. I don't feel my age. But I am 37 years old today.

Not gonna embrace the number. Not gonna like it. Just gonna deal with it. Why? Because 37 years of age in the world of fertility is old. All my 'odds' and 'statistics' for having a baby just dropped like a bazillion %...(ok maybe 5 or 10%).

But whatever. Moving on. I've never been a number's girl so why should I start now. Right?

What I would like to do for my birthday is to celebrate my family, My Love and my friends.

So, I propose a birthday toast...

Thank you for putting up with all my anxious ways. Thank you for loving me unconditionally. Thank you for accepting me just the way I am.


And finally, if there is anything I have learned in my 37 years, it is this...

 a life without love is no life at all.

Happy birthday to me!

Happy Thanksgiving Day

I know I've been m.i.a. lately...but I'll be back...I've got a lot to share...I just need to get my blogging groove back...until then...

I couldn't let this summer like Thanksgiving Day go by without acknowledgement.

Happy Thanksgiving Day to all my family, friends and fellow Canadians.

And as proclaimed by Parliament on January 31st, be observed on the second Monday in October...

   "A Day of general Thanksgiving to Almighty God for the bountiful harvest with which Canada has been blessed..."
