Savoring the sweet life.

This morning was Maddy's scheduled scope.

I caved and cancelled.

Have you ever just didn't feel right about something?

This was it.

It just didn't feel right.

I talked with her Dr. and we both agreed to give her new diet a chance.

She is showing improvement and has not taken any meds for over a week.

I am hopeful. I am praying.

 Thank you for your prayers too!

She is so excited!

It's that time of year again for school dances.

Every year her school holds a Mardi Gras Ball

And without fail, I hold my breath.

I watch as she excitedly picks out a dress, shoes and fancy earrings.

I make sure her hair appointment is scheduled around her makeup.

She is ready. I am not... LOL

When did I turn into an adult?

I guess I had my answer when I called my husband...

"I bought new fluffy towels babe and they are wonderful"   !!!


I'm a Mom.

I picked angel food cake with fruit over King Cake because it's healthier for us.

As you can see, they didn't refuse ha!

Life passes so fast we tend to just digest it in a blur.

I want to savor its sweet flavor.

I want to enjoy my lifes deserts one day at a time.

I snapped this picture the other day just playing around. love it

Today her passion is horses.

I know that won't last forever..sigh.

So I make sure to pray for her prince charming now.

I have done that for all three of my kiddos.

I'm so glad that the Lord knows their hearts.

I find peace in that ;)

Today I am savoring...

My middle one wants to hang out with me after school today.

My youngest is too young to drive and needs me for carpool.

My oldest still comes home for lunch.

life is sweet!



  1. Lovely pics of Maddy. I especially love the last one. You should enlarge it and frame it. So pretty.

    I so hear you on the fluffy towel thing. been there and done that. It is the little things in life as I get older that make me happy.

    Someone said something to me when my son was in high school about they couldn't believe I took one day out of my week to pick him up and have lunch every week. I told them, as long as he wants to have lunch with his Mother, I'll be there with bells on.


  3. Susie, love your post. Love the pics of your precious girl! You are so right savor each and every moment. The Lord knows a "mama's" heart.

It's bitter-sweet, where I am now this's how it's suuppose to be....Blessings, Karen ...A Cape Cod Nest

  11. Speaking of just adding your favorite jacket, Bandage Dress Lubov almost always wears Herve Leger separates.Perhaps because of Herve Leger Replica how we show our pieces, or just the assumed way of Herve Leger, Oktoberfest outfit people tend to wear our collections together, as one piece. But I like them as separates; it’s almost cooler,” she says. “I would put this jacket with a pair of jeans or a work skirt. And of course it all Animal Costumes but if you’re in L.A., you just wear the skirt with a T-shirt. The great thing about Herve separates is that it adds high fashion glamour to any number of basic pieces you already own.”depends on where you live,


Thanks for stopping by. It's always so nice to hear from you.
