Playing catch up...

My last entry was back in February; so I'm going to try to catch you up. I wasn't feeling well for a while. As I started to feel better my friend Chris offered Frank and I her condo in Ocean City for a week. So we decided; since we haven't been on a vacation in a while, that we were going to go! I really love the beach, a lot more than I did when I was younger. It is just a relaxing and peaceful, and our trip was wonderful. My little brother Pete went with us (as well as Kate of course) and everyone really had a great time! We came home to new living room furniture (sofa and love seat) which was nice, and then we all got sick the following week.

That brings us to today, where everyone is definitely feeling better! I'm excited about my birthday coming up (Thursday); I'll be 34. It seems like just yesterday that Kate was born and I got married! So this week I have been on a big gratitude trip. I am so thankful for my life, and I have been so blessed with my family and friends. Frank and Kate are taking me out for my birthday on Saturday, but I have no idea where we are going! I think they are going to blind fold me in the car! I don't get a hint either, when they asked what I wanted I said to spend time with them. So I'm guessing that's what we are doing, going to spend the day together. Other than that I have no idea! It will definitely be a surprise!

I also have to post about my daughter. Kate and I both lead teams at our local Great Strides CF walk, but last year I just couldn't participate. (I wasn't feeling well and my grandmother had just passed away) This year we were talking about it and Kate said she'd like to take over my team this year and lead it for me. So she did. She and I worked on a montage for the walk this year and so far it seems to have gotten a really good response!
