Happy Blogaversary! (and 10th Wedding Anniversary!)

Well - out with the old and in with the NEW! My little blog is all new looking and very very spiffy! Thanks to Sarah of Blogovers with love we have been Spring-Blogovered!! AND IT IS SO PRETTY! Thank you so much Sarah!!! Please note - that the proceeds from these amazing blogovers go to excellent and worthy causes. This month and next - the proceeds will go to Half the Sky a cause near and dear to my heart. I must say - that the adoption community has to be, without a doubt, the most thoughtful and ready to aid of any community. I know I have witnessed miracles when adopty parents (especially the Moms!) decide to pursue a purpose. So - if you want to comment on the new look - please do - then take a few moments and look at the super-amazing work of the Moms and Moms-to-be over at Blogovers with love!!

While you are surfing - why not check out the annual "Born in My Heart" Art Auction that funds Love Without Boundaries' work in China with Children waiting for families.


Now back to our regularly scheduled programming:

10 years ago April 25th - on a Gorgeous Day - much like today - I married the great guy I share my life with, adopted my kids with and adore. 10 years went so fast... 2 amazing children and life in the slow lane on LI - and there are times I literally cry that my life is so filled with unexpected goodness. Right now - the minor difficulties are so far outweighed by what is going right: here are a few gratitudes: my son hugged me after running to greet me when I got home from work, my daughter says I am the best Mommy in the whole world, my husband still makes my coffee every single day - even his day off when he could sleep in, he gets up and makes my coffee, perfectly; I got a (long overdue) promotion at work, all my loved ones are happy and healthy, the cats are now staying away from #1 Son and that is making him happy, #1 Daughter has entered the year of being 3 happy, healthy and SO IMPERIALLY DEMANDING - that I have decided the 2s were NOT so TERRIBLE! Yet, she is a veritable angel at childcare - what's up with that!

Yet - here we are. 10 pretty happy years together and although we have our moments - I wouldn't trade my life, my DH or my two kiddos for anyone or anything. For those of you in the know (meaning you were at my wedding or on my honeymoon) You will recognize the Life is Good - and yes, life IS still GOOD! So - thank you Me Honey - the last 10 were a piece of cake - what d'ya say to 10 or 20 more? (uh, years not kids!)

I'm loving the new blog look, and am strongly considering signing up for a makeover myself...it's hard, though, because I like my blog's look a lot. :)

Congratulations on 10 years!!!
