Mandy, I can't imagine my life without your friendship. Our talks, our fits of uncontrollable laughter, our randomness that is almost like a language I often think only we speak, our ability to be there for each other in ways that comes from our past few years of learning how, and our like-spirits that gives us an amazing sister-like connection... these are some of the things I truly cherish when I think of who you are in my life! Happy Happy Birthday to you, Mandy!!! I wish I was actually there yesterday, but my memories of so many great times together will have to suffice. Miss ya & luv u sista!!!!

Sorry for the silence lately! I was on such a roll with my blogging... and then real life got back in the way haha. For those of you who haven't heard, we are back in Syracuse. Our trip out was pretty smooth. I won't lie, we didn't have much of a warm fuzzy feeling in our tummies. But it's all good and we will keep positive! We've been passing time doing a lot of house and apartment hunting. We had an appointment last night to see a house and let me tell ya that the house/apt hunt has finally ended!!! We found a house in one on the cutest little subdivisions. We were very eager for the right fit to come along and it did. We love this one :) We will move next Wednesday afternoon so it's a hotel room until then.
This dog has an amazing personality and would enjoy nap-time with Adam.
Tomorrow Adam has a game in Rochester and then it's the home opener on Saturday. Well folks, happy Thursday! Gonna go pick up my husband :)
p.s. Angie & Jolene; have a great road trip!!! Give my best to Francine. Drive safe girls xo

Happy Birthday Gakuji. YOU'RE TWO!!! :) Allow me to introduce you to another one of the little toddlers in my life. Gakuji is my cousin Carl's little boy. They live in Japan! Gakuji speaks english to Carl and Japonese to his mom, Rieko. I tell you, it takes a smart kiddo to balance two languages as such a young age (2!!). I always look forward to opening my email in hopes that I have a new picture of this adorable toddler to add to my collection. Being so far away, it's easy for him to freeze in my mind as this little baby, but he's growing up, no question! And he's an amazing little boy. Carl & Rieko... I hope you are still pinching yourself when you look at him! You've done an amazing job at keeping us updated with pictures -- I see so much of you in him.....height for one :) it's awesome. Give him a big hug for me today!! We miss you guys!
Happy birthday to Mark Johnson, on September 30th!!! My blue eyed cousin Mark who truly has a heart for others! I miss our days at Alix & Jules' camp where we'd go crazy as kids. Goodness, we had fun. Mark is good at making people feel great. His heart comes through in this way. Whether in a conversation or spending time with you, I've always thought this was a cool gift that Mark has in impacting the people in his life. He is selfless, gentle, genuine guy. We hope you had a fun day with whistles and hollers... Line, give your fiance a big kiss & squeeze for me and tell him happy birthday! Miss ya, cus!!!
