Holidays in Florida

I am a little late on my holiday post..  Remember back in May of 2021 when everyone was getting vaccinated and we thought we were at a turning point. Everything seemed so hopeful. So we planned a trip to Costa Rica for December. I mean it's not like we were immediately jumping on a plane.. we were giving it a decent 6 months. And then Delta happened. So we canceled that. In November we went to Antigua and it was all so safe we thought we'd give December another try and booked Jamaica. And then Omnicron hit. And Jamaica unlike Antigua did not have any vaccination rules.. it was pretty much anyone can come kinda situation so we canceled that as well.  And then me friend passed and we thought.. life is too short. We aren't going to make any rash decisions.. we are going to continue to take all the needed precautions but we will still go somewhere. But where? And with that we ended up in Florida. Probably still not the safest place but we were staying within the country

December Reads

I ended the year with 28 book read. I was hoping to get to 30 but I was in a book funk by the end of the year and just didn't feel like reading :( The Widow's Watcher by Eliza Maxwell Synopsis -   Living in the shadow of a decades-old crime that stole his children from him, reclusive Lars Jorgensen is an unlikely savior. But when a stranger walks onto the ice of a frozen Minnesota lake, her intentions are brutally clear, and the old man isn’t about to let her follow through. Jenna Shaw didn’t ask for Lars’s help, nor does she want it. After he pulls her from the brink, however, Jenna finds her desire to give up challenged by their unlikely friendship. In Jenna, Lars recognizes his last chance for redemption. And in her quest to solve the mysteries of Lars’s past and bring him closure, Jenna may find the way out of her own darkness.

H Turns Eight

And just like that H turned 8. We started the morning with homemade candy waffles and ended the days with a raspberry mousse cake. This child of mine is oddly not a big fan of chocolaty desserts.. sigh. Otherwise it was a pretty normal day.. we had come back from a trip the day prior so we all got covid tests and stayed home.  This weekend though we had a birthday party for him. Last year we had refrained, being in the thick of the pandemic. This year with them already going to school and participating in sports etc we decided it would be fine to have a small party. We opted to not have it in our home. We hosted it at Knockerballs, its a cool indoor play area with life sized games like Human Foosball and Hungry Hungry Humans.. D had attended a few birthday parties there and I always thought it was such a fun place. The entire space was booked for us which made it feel safer. I used Paperless Post to send out the invites. Mainly because I did a sponsored post for them a couple of year

Hello 2022

2022. 2022! How are we in 2022? Hope you all had a happy and healthy end to the year. When I signed off for the year we had a lot planned. Not everything went as planned though. We were visited upon with some very bad news. We were rocked to our very cores when we heard about the sudden death of a close family friend in a freak accident. When something like that happens it makes you question your life and the choices you make, it makes you want to hold your loved ones closer and make more memories with them. The last few years have been filled with much loss for many people and wish everyone another year of courage and hope.   M and I got our boosters. I reunited with a friend I hadn’t seen in 5 years! We had a few little trips planned.. we canceled some.. we moved around things. Our friends hosted a secret Santa.  We all got Covid tests yesterday before retuning to school/work.  H turned 8! This is the picture he insisted I use. He had lost a tooth just minutes before.  All in all we
