Grateful

What a fabulous weekend it was here in SoCal.  A semi-impromptu visit from my parents and near record breaking temps landed us at the beach for the day on Saturday.  I have been playing around with my camera and it's different settings - trying to pull away from auto mode. Here is photo I took of the girls (we were plus one) along with a quote that I found fitting for our lives right now.


So I have to say, I just wrote this post about friendships and certain things that are going on with  us and I have decided to delete it for something more vague. I sometimes find it hard to draw the line as to what makes it onto the blog??  I am in sort of a strange situation where I know certain people read this blog and they tend to talk a lot to their kids....who tend to bring it to school. So I should be careful what I say. The flip side to this is that I know a lot of fabulous moms and have be-friended them only through this blog. I know their words would give me what I need to get though what is going on but I am torn as to whether or not to share in fear that it would get back to the playground. I guess when push comes to shove, you have to look out for your family. And know your audience.

So I shall just say that I could not be more proud of this gal right here. My Olivia is so strong and confident and has the backbone to stand up for what she believes. All by herself. There was one straw that broke the camels back and she made a choice all on her won...then came home and told me about it. (I am sitting on my hands and biting my tongue and just letting her know I am here if she wants to talk about anything. It's hard for me...but we live and learn as time goes on!)  And Liv is totally fine.  She's pretty great! So strong and so confident and kind and compassionate....words that I think many do not use all in the same sentence when describing a single person.  Love that gal!  I think she will change the world one day...all by herself! One more reason to be grateful for today!
