Project Smile - June

Proof that my June was magical.
While celebrating Lucas' second birthday, my 39th and Father's Day, welcoming three cichlids into our family and breaking in a new pair of sneakers, enjoying a fun overnight in Palm Springs with my girlfriends, I was gently reminded by my sweet son on a walk around our neighborhood how important it is to stop and smell the roses every once in a while.

I'm also proud to share that we got Lucas completely off of bottles in June. 

It was a great month! 

To see what had me smiling in May, click here and to link up and share your own month of joy, please visit Kristi of Live and Love out Loud.

Determination Followed By Glee

Time after time, Lucas took each careful step up the ladders at the park, only to thoroughly enjoy the ride down the slides. 

It was brilliant to watch.
Each of these shots was taken with the Hipstamatic app for iPhone, using Ina's 1969 film and Jimmy lens, no flash.

A Preschooler?!

I no longer have a toddler. 

At two years old, Lucas is considered a preschooler. According to Gerber that is; who identify a preschooler as:
  • Runs well without falling
  • Chews more skillfully and efficiently
  • Mastering the use of spoon and fork
  • Sits in booster seat or child seat at family meals 

Check, check, check and check. 

But a preschooler? I can't get my head wrapped around it yet, even though in just one short month, Lucas will be attending preschool three morning a week.

I am so excited for him! I truly cannot wait for him to learn more than I feel I could ever teach him; wonderful and amazing things, beyond basic manners, nursery rhymes, numbers, colors, shapes and the alphabet. I'm excited for him to increase his social skills and come home and tell his dad and I all about his day. There is no doubt in my mind that he is going to love school.

    But a preschooler! How did that happen? 

    I suppose it was inevitable. Lucas is in a "big boy" bed, off bottles (FINALLY!), can carry on a complete and coherent conversation, has a great sense of humor and is becoming more terrific than terrible (most days). Plus, he's curious about everything and loves learning. School is next natural stage. 
     
    When asked if he's a baby, Lucas will be the first one to tell you, "no, big boy". But, if it's all the same to him, he will always be my baby.

    Searching For Peace

    Even though she hadn't had a decent night's sleep in days, she woke up before the sun.

    There were no more international calls to make or receive; all the details had been handled to the best of her ability, knowledge and strength. 

    The photos and music had been carefully selected and the difficult but necessary phone calls made.

    She bought a new black dress that she knew would hang in her closet forever but only be worn once.

    The obituary had been written and ran in the newspaper the previous day. She will always wonder how there can be a word limit when describing a person's life. Let alone two. How do you convey all the wonderful qualities about someone and list the reasons why they will be missed in 300 words or less? 

    This morning she would do something life affirming. 

    She wanted a chance to forget for a while; to do something that she would do any given day so as to feel the slightest bit normal.

    A walk through a beautiful canyon. She would immerse herself in abundant wildlife, get lost in hillsides resplendent with palo verde trees, graceful groves of ocotillo and prickly pear cactus. 

    She wanted to be surrounded by life, to fill her eyesight with nature and growth so that her dark and broken heart may heal someday.

    Today was a day to remember, mourn and begin searching for peace.



    This post is fiction and was written for The Red Dress Club's writing assignment, Red Writing Hood. This week's prompt: Write a 300 word piece using the following word for inspiration: LIFE. Constructive criticism is welcome.

    Jet Setter

    Voluptuous and simple - the world is larger than one had thought. - Denise Levertov

    I grew up overseas so I have been fortunate to see a lot of the world, but there are still places I want to visit.

    Topping my list right now, in the order of which they may be visited, are:

    Palm Springs - I know, I know, I was just there (read all about my recent trip here) and it's only 90 minutes from my front door, but I am craving some consistent sunlight, lounging by the pool with the latest celebrity gossip magazines, a good book and yummy cocktails with cool names like "The Julie"; and some alone time with my husband. For the record, all the other destinations on my list will include Lucas.

    Vancouver, Canada - My husband spent nine months in Vancouver several years ago and has always spoken so highly of his experience, the scenery, the accessibility to nature and outdoor activities and the people. The way he talks about it makes me want to go!

    Greece - Ever since I saw Captain Corelli's Mandolin, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and Mama Mia, I have wanted to go to Greece. All terrible movies, but the stark contrast between the gorgeous blue Mediterranean sea and white buildings, the rich history and authentic sadziki are all very alluring.    
      
    My list of "must see" destinations is never ending... Croatia, the Galapagos, Ireland and Tokyo are high on the list too. 

    I would also love to take Lucas on an African safari one day. There's nothing else on earth like being within 30 feet of an elephant, lion, zebra or giraffe. To date, that has been my favorite trip. 
     
    Where do you want to go?

    I'm A Celebrity Look-Alike

    My friend, Morgan from The Little Hen House is the mastermind behind the latest blog-hop and since I played along with I was a Senior Hottie and Rockin' the Baby Bump, I thought why not?

    Here is I'm a Celebrity Look-Alike... what do you think? See any resemblance? 

    My father used to mail me photos ripped out of magazines of Sigourney Weaver with her jawline, cheekbones or smile circled with a note attached saying something like, I see it, do you? or There's definitely a resemblance, but you are much prettier. Aw...
    Photobucket
    Photobucket

    I have one friend that has always told me that she thinks I look like Elizabeth Hurley

    Don't laugh! I don't see it either, however, I do appreciate the compliment.
    Photobucket

    Another friend makes Blake Lively comparisons.

    I wish!
    Photobucket

    And recently, someone put a link on my Facebook wall saying Kate Middleton was my doppelganger. 

    Hmmm.... maybe? Maybe not. What do you think?
    Photobucket

    Do people tell you you look like someone famous? If so, link up here and join in on the fun, even if you think they're crazy! 

    Speaking of crazy, this is my 600th post!

    Things Overheard At The Park

    20 Things I've Overheard (or said repetitively) at the Park:

    3. "I'm going to have to call you back."
    4. "You need to share."
    5. "I said, 'no throwing sand!'."
    6. "Stop right where you are, that's the street!"
    7. "Be careful!"
    8. "Shake it off, you're okay."
    9. "Those aren't your snacks."
    10. "No, we didn't bring Goldfish, we have Bunnies".
    11. "How many times do I have to ask you to stop throwing sand?"
    12. "Sand is not for eating."
    13. "I'm sorry, I didn't bring Goldfish, we have Bunnies."
    14. "Great, did you poop?"
    15. "Slides are for going down, not up." 
    16. "Wait your turn."
    17. "Say, 'excuse me'."
    18. "STOP THROWING SAND!! You can get a Time Out anywhere, you know?!"
    19. "Someone's going to need a bath tonight."
    20. "Okay, that's it! Nap time, let's go home!"

    Empty

    Lucas has only been to my parents house one time. 

    Given the circumstances, once is enough.

    He was almost five months old and it was a trip made out of necessity. There was much work to be done.

    He'll never even remember the six days we spent in Tucson and for that I am grateful.

    We were there almost a week and each day proved more difficult than the previous. Thoughts of what should have been swirled my mind and consumed me with grief.

    My parents house had been cleared of all the knick knacks and furniture, books, clothing, linens, pots and pans; cleared of all of the items that make a house a home. 

    There was a fresh coat of paint of the walls that used to adorn family photos and souvenirs from around the world. Now the walls are scarce and a boring egg shell white. 

    Some of my favorite photos of us were taken in the backyard during that trip. The desert always makes for a beautiful backdrop with it's sun kissed purple majestic mountains and our blue eyes against the  Arizona sky.

    Lucas saw his first cactus on that trip. He had a bath in the kitchen sink and played on the bed my parents used to share.His laughter filled the halls and lifted our spirits because he didn't know any better.

    Never had I dreamed of being in that house with my son without my parents there too.

    Aside from all the things that are missing, the house is void of all the warmth, light and love it once held. Cherished memories that I can recall in an instant of Christmas mornings, chocolate chip cookies cooling on the kitchen counters, family debates around the kitchen table and countless summer bar-be-ques.
     
    This was one trip that should have been the first of many.

    The house is empty now, it's occupants have been gone for over three years.

    There is still some work to be done, but I don't know that I can ever take Lucas back to that house again.

    Happy Father's Day!

    The other day I overheard my husband tell someone that being/becoming a parent is mostly about the person you choose to do it with. It's one of the nicest compliments I have ever received.

    If in fact he meant he choose correctly by choosing me. Hmmm... maybe I should have asked for clarification. 

    Well, I know I sure did.
     
    I am so grateful to have such a wonderful, understanding husband that has more patience than anyone I have ever met and has embraced parenthood with so much love and joy that it makes my heart swell.
     
    It has been such a thrill to watch Todd become a father and a really good one at that. Lucas is lucky to have such a sweet Daddy and role model. 
    Happy Father's Day to Todd and to all the hardworking, supportive and loving fathers out there.

    GNO

    I have always been blessed to have a lot of friends in my life. Some of whom I would call as close as family ~ wonderful women that I confide in, trust, enjoy spending time with and without whom, I don't know where or who I'd be.
    I have friends from high school, friends from college, single friends, divorced friends, mommy friends, friends I gained through my first marriage, friends that I gained through my second marriage, colleagues that became friends, neighbors that became friends and one very dear friend, Sophie that lives clear across the globe.
    I also have a ton of friends that I have never even met (yet), thanks to blogging and Twitter. :)
     
    My core group of friends consists of five women I see on a regular basis... for play dates with our children, walks without them, lunch, happy hours, dinners and the occasional overnight escapes get-aways.
     
    My friends and I like to celebrate each others birthdays in big ways, usually involving a trip. My husband always gives me a hard time about it, but if we didn't, there's a chance I never would have met him. More on that in a later post... 

    Anyway, my last girl's night out was last weekend, on an overnight in Palm Springs! We celebrating Lisa's birthday, my beautiful underwater friend above. In fact, all the photos used in this post were taken over the weekend. 

    We did what all good friends do; laughed, drank, ate a lot of mini cupcakes, talked about our kids, our jobs, our families, our spouses, or lack there of and had a great time. I'm already looking forward to our group's next birthday... mine!

    Apart from my friends, I've even luckier that my husband understands how important my friendships are.
