I heArt Fridays... Thanksgiving Love

This was my view during Thanksgiving dinner yesterday as we ate outside on my cousin's back porch in Carlsbad with a view of the ocean and beautiful sunset. 

Not to shabby.

I noticed the greyish heart shaped clouds in the upper left corner. I perfect sign of love from above.

And be thankful.

And be thankful.
                                             Colossian 3:15

At the beginning of 2013 I heard these words during Mass and I decided to say these 3 words during times of struggle. There is always something to be thankful for and this year I have really tried to practice gratitude. Practicing Gratitude can really change the way you look at life and help to get through each day.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Throwback Thursday... My First Dance Recital

Little did I know that when my Mother signed me up for dance lessons at 3 how much enjoyment dance and movement would bring me for the rest of my life.
This Throwback Thursday photo is my first recital to the song: 

“I’m a Little Teapot” 

I started dancing again about 18 months ago and I thoroughly enjoying myself. 
I have a post brewing about dancing and life and leading and following, 

but for now...

"Here is my handle and here is my spout!"

My friends from Buffalo sent it to me. 
I love it... 
especially that the snow is there and I am in here in 85 degree weather.

Throwback Thursday - Missing Old Friends

I miss these two so much... 
This is a throwback to 1985 when my College roommate Heather and her boyfriend John came to visit us. We had gone to Niagara Falls for the day and we saw this sign. John was from the Bronx and absolutely loved New York's Burroughs. When we saw this sign we knew we had to have a picture of him under it as he really thought he was New York's gift to the world.

It was 21 years ago this week that Heather died from AIDS given to her by John, who had died a few years before her. A tragic love affair to say the least. I think about her often, especially this time of year.

So call a friend today.. just to say hi and hear their voice... I so wish I could hear her voice again and we could sit and laugh for hours about stupid stuff and silly joke books and walk to get a slice of pizza.

Throwback Thursday - Adorable Harry Potter

I know that Halloween has passed, but I just love this photo of Dante when he was "in to" Harry Potter so I had to use it for this week's Throwback Thursday.

I am so glad that I made the kids pose for as many photos as I did... I certainly enjoy looking back on these great times in our lives. He was so adorable, wasn't he?

I heArt Fridays... Love in an Elevator!

Dante and I were on a quest for the perfect holiday costume and I found this heart in the elevator of the parking structure. It is a bit blurry but elevators are not always know for the best lighting. 

He found this costume from the Morph Costume Co... digital dudz. You download an app and you  can have a beating heart or maggots or snakes. Dante cut his shirt and did the blood spatter himself. I guess it could be consider another heart find but just a bit different than his Mom's usual post!

We had a great Halloween night. He had some friends sleep over and play dungeons and dragons and watch Back to the Future as they had the today off from school.
