About Me

My photo
I am a stay-at-home mom. I have been married to my handsome and wonderful husband for over 14 years. Right now he's battling stomach/esophagus cancer. So I do my best to craft when I can. I have two wonderful boys. My oldest, Garett, is 24 and served 5 years in the Navy. He's been home since the beginning of the year (2014). We are very proud of him. My youngest, "DJ", is 13 and in the 8th grade. I have two Border Collie mix dogs (Koda and Rugu), one Calico cat (Hydie), one orange Tabby cat (Bosley), one Tea Cup Chihuahua (Gigi...I LOVE her sooo much), a Chiweinnie (Lily....sweetest dog ever), and a Jack Russell/Chihuahua (Connor....AAALL boy).

Hello all my Unity Sisters out there!!!  Happy Friday...

What a cozy day it is today for us here in Colorado.  Got a nice 6 inches of snow :)

Under the trees is less snow which is good for my tiny dog LOL.  Over to the left, however, is a bit deeper and she avoids that area.

Anyway...my card I made is a birthday card for my WONDERFUL aunt who has always been there for me throughout my life.  She will be 79 next month and she's having a hard time accepting all the things that come with age.  

She's ALWAYS been a health nut and most of her life she's been a vegetarian.  She's 5' 1" and weighs less than 80lbs.  I'm so worried about her.  I told her she needs to get off the veggi diet and start eating LOTS of fish, chicken, turkey, etc for protein.  She refuses to eat red meat.  Ok...that's fine...but more white meat!!  I wish I could be with her to help her in her days of aging.  She lives in Los Angeles in the Hollywood Hills (across the street from Brad Pitt).  It's beautiful there.  She's lived there since 1964.  She paid pennies for her house back then.  She had it paid off within 15 years.  It's worth millions now.  I miss her.  I wish I could get out to go see her, at least.

Sorry...got a little emotional there LOL.  She's a wonderful person with lots of funny stories of her and my mom growing up.  She has a wonderful career life too.  She was a singer...mostly Opera...and she traveled the globe to perform.  After that she became a Registered Nurse and absolutely LOVED her job.  She's retired now, obviously, and now I wish I could return the favor to her and be there to help her as she was there to help many throughout her life.

Well, sorry for jibber jabbering your ears off.  Thank you so much for stopping by.  Hope you all have a great weekend.

Stamps used:  Everything Happens to be Wonderful (watercolored)/ Enjoy, Explore, Believe / Imagine It.
