I've mentioned what a great month May is already.  It's been filled with love and good friends.  Old and new. 

And this weekend was a good example of that.  On Sunday we celebrated little Tyler's baptism.  (Note:  I've been dreading this event for awhile because of the dynamics between me and a person from my past.  However, on the morning of it I realized that it no longer mattered about the beef between me and that person.  I only cared about Tyler and being really present in that moment with him.  And that's exactly what happened. )

It was a lovely day!

Before a baptism, you should always take a selfie to send to your friend that isn't there. duh.

Sweet little Emma and Sofia.  I can't even.  These girls are wonderful!

I love this picture of us.  I never print pictures but I want this one in a frame in my house.  I am so thankful I met Isabel and have gotten to be a part of her children's lives.  It makes my heart full.  And when I ever doubt some of the life choices I've made in the last few years, I am reminded that if I hadn't made some of those unfortunate choices--I wouldn't have met some of the people that I treasure in my life  now. 
The incredible cake.  It was beautiful and tasty.
And every once in awhile a picture is taken that captures a true moment.  I was pretty damn happy in this moment.  It was a great afternoon!  And I may be slightly biased but Tyler is the cutest!
After the baptism fun was over, I went to a BBQ for a bit to see some friends.  Here is a great picture of Sabrina and Shawn.  So cute!

On Memorial Day I hung out in the sun and relaxed with friends.  It was a nice day!

It was a great weekend filled with some of my favorite people!  I feel very thankful for every one of them!

Next Time

I stumbled upon this as I was wasting a little time in the pinterest today.  And hello.  It's like this was written for me. 

Can I get an Amen?

Happy Wednesday!

Yay for May!

Well, as you  might have guessed, I've taken a little hiatus from blogging.  My last post caused a little drama in my life.  BUT it was exactly the drama I needed to end a very ugly chapter of my life for good!   I am very thankful for my very good friends Angie and Sabrina.  They've seen me through the last two years as I've struggled with a bad situation and little do they know, they were the ones that finally closed the door to the past for me.    That was on May 1st. 

And ever since then, May has been pretty great.  I've had the kind of days that I smile all day long for no reason.  I'm laughing even more than usual.  I'm excited to wake up in the morning.  I love my friends.   I feel great even though my life is pure chaos.  I'll catch you up a little...

Got to hang out with my work wife outside of work.  She's the best part of going to work.  I get to sit next to her and laugh all day.  I swore I wouldn't make any friends at this job, but damn it.  I did.
My Dad and I had a lunch date one random Sunday.  It was so fun to spend time with him.  I adore that he participates in  these selfies.

Tyler is officially the cutest boy in my life.  Went to his follow up appointment with Isabel.  The little guy is doing great and SO handsome!

Got to spend time with the woman that has spent the last 10 years mothering me.  We worked together every day for 8 years.   So now we have to plan for special nights to get together to catch up.  She has been through some really important stuff in my life with me and I'm always thankful to have her to talk to because she keeps it real.  Mother style.

Watched some of my favorite college students graduate this past weekend.  Ashley is my favorite BBW associate.  She just gets me.   I will miss her when she leaves.  I don't even want to think about it...

Celebrated Jessica's 30th birthday this weekend. 
It's been a good month.  I'm looking forward to what's to come...
