4 things...loved ones

Hello all, I hope you have had a joyous week. I am spending this weekend with my family for a very special occasion, my brothers wedding. I am thrilled to be apart of his big day as a bridesmaid. It is a different way to view a wedding, to stand so close to the bride and groom and feel the emotional connection they share, and to look out at all their loved ones who are wishing them the best. It reminds me how important family and friends are. These are the people who are the nearest and dearest to your heart. The people who will support, love, and care for you. The people that will cheer for your successes and be around to pick you up if you fall. What would we be without our loved ones.Craving : my mom's cooking. Part of me wishes I could stay home forever just to be able to eat her food everyday.

Buying : gifts for my nephew. He is 3 months old now and I just want to get him everything I see. I did buy him a pair of footed monkey pajama's that I cannot wait to see on him.

Planning : A date night with my girlfriends. I could use a little bit more time with my friends and family this week. I am thinking of taking them to the landmark theater in Hillcrest to watch Art and Craft. The premise reminds me of Exit Through The Gift Shop, so I have a feeling I will enjoy it.

Exploring :  my new neighborhood. It is such a beautiful and lively place. There are so many coffee bars and new places to eat. Mike and I are going to have a good time trying them all and finding some new favorite places. So far we found a place called Senor Mangos that has the freshest smoothies and acai bowls. They also have a little fruit shop next door with local fruits and vegetables.

Have a great rest of your weekend everyone and send a family member or friend some love today.
