March Madness…..Silly me….

I was under the impression that March – besides being the beginning of Spring and Spring cleaning was a time where you get to go shopping - - for new clothes & SANDALS.  I love sandals….wait...I'm having a moment. 


Now.... when I hear ads about MARCH MADNESS I had visions of Coach strappy sandals, and any flat sandals that wouldn’t make me look (& feel)like an amazon woman. Don’t laugh. I feel way too tall with even the smallest of heels. …and besides feeling tall, I trip over air, so flats are always the shoes for me.
Turns out ALL THESE years, March Madness has nothing (well, next to nothing) to do with retail therapy…WTH??

MARCH MADNESS (according to Wikipedia ):
Events surrounding the single-elimination Division I college basketball tournaments performed each spring in the United States…blah-blah… I lost interest…

I STILL choose to believe that MARCH MADNESS is talking to ME… I hear you Coach Store… YES, I believe I will still be on the hunt for the perfect strappy sandal….who wants to join me in some retail therapy?
We can hit Starbucks and hit the shoe stores….

March Madnes...gotta love it!!

Another Bites The Dust? What's That REALLY Mean?

Today is another day where my hubby and I attend another wedding (of a friend of one of our kids).
THESE kids – whom we've known since just after uteri-  (and) we count as one of our own. Greg Lindsay, ever the personable, handsome & charismatic soul, approached my husband & I when he was only 5 years old: “Hello Mr. & Mrs. Aguilar, I’m Greg Lindsay, William’s best friend”.  I should point out that this was the first day of kindergarten for both of the boys. It’s true, they've been best buds since that day 20 plus years ago.

As I reflect on the years gone by, I can’t help but be a bit nostalgic about what has transpired all these years. They've gone through Kindergarten & worked their way through Middle School, High School & College. Have they changed? Well, I wouldn't be truthful if I said no. Trends come & go, they find other friends they may have more in common with, but when it comes down to it, lifelong friends are, well, lifelong. Greg & William have this bond that will always be there. The first day of kindergarten, all those years ago…..
Greg will be married today to a beautiful girl named Michelle. I’m excited for their new life together.

My son? My son has a wonderful woman in his life as well. Rebekah has shown that when you
love the world, you become a catalyst for change. She has so much love in her heart… I love that!!
Will they spend the rest of their life together? I dunno…it’s not for me to decide…nor is it my decision for my girls, Meghan & Ariana to spend their lives with their awesome guys (Shaun & Jake, respectively). They all have found kind, decent partners. I wish for all of my kids, wherever their individual roads take them, that they are respectful, loved & happy. What more can we hope for our kids when facing this world??

Greg & Michelle, Enjoy your special day….

To my kids, Meg, Will, Ree, Shaun, Rebekah & Jake…
Whatever your paths - - may you seek fulfillment and happiness…..and always be in love!!!
