Rain Rain Go Away!

I literally cannot remember the last time I saw the sun. I feel like it's been raining in Boston since May. I'm tired of my towels never drying completely between showers and of my hair being a frizzy afro that has to live in a pony tail. Our cat his consistently damp and therefore so is our couch, bed, and any other surface Moose feels entitled to. I've heard of people having seasonal affect disorder in the winter but I'm having it the summer too!

This is a plea to the weather gods, please send some rays my way!

Awful things happen. They can happen to anyone anywhere. It's hard to understand why these things happen. When faced with awful event I don't ever think there is a right way to react. You can cry uncontrollably, you can punch things, you can vomit, or you can just stare off into space and try to wrap your mind why something so horrible could happen.

I wish we could answer why these things happen, but I don't think we would ever be satisfied with that answer. We just need to remember to hold our loved ones tight and make sure they know we love them.

Almost Here!

It is exactly two more months until my wedding! I'm not one of those brides who obsesses with the count down counter on "the knot" but I can't believe that it is almost here. When Steve and I started to plan our wedding we picked a date that was almost 13 months away and now it's right around the corner. Between all wedding showers, work and other assorted parties that we have I know this time is going to fly by and I can't be more excited about it.
