As you all know, I took a week off from blogging to be with our family. I chose to stay in the present and make memories.
Family time is the best, and our family gathering brought me great joy. It went by quickly, but I savored every minute. I’m so glad I take many pictures because I relive and feel it again with each photo.
“Every moment of life is unique…a kiss, a sunset, a dance, a joke. None will ever recur in quite the same way. Each happens only once in the history of the universe.”
— Stephen Nachmanovitch
Moments spent with family are so precious, aren’t they? The kids don’t know it, but their time spent with us was a gift. My Momma heart is full!
We sat for hours sitting outside and chatting.
We enjoyed breakfast and many meals on the patio.
We showed them the sights and sounds of beautiful Arizona. And to our amazement happened upon new restaurants that we thoroughly enjoyed as well. Awe… life is good.
Even though our time together ended, we will always have endearing memories.

Then This Happened!
Speaking of memories, I made even more memories with friends from this amazing blogging community. This was our third gathering, and we talked and giggled like we had known each other forever. We giggled over dogs, cats, crest white strips, and so much more. I am now calling this group the “Blog Buddies!”
Cinco De Mayo
After I came home from lunch with the “Blog Buddies,” later that afternoon, I made Sweet Man and I a snack for Cinco De Mayo before we headed out to a friend’s to enjoy more Cinco de Mayo fun. My lovely friend had just given me this gorgeous and multicolored scarf, so I grabbed our cute margarita glasses, along with our Fiestaware, then added chips and salsa. So festive, right? And guess what? Sweet man and I made more memories while also enjoying our backyard.
Oh, and That’s Not All!
You probably can’t believe our weekend could improve even more, but it did. With fancy hats on our heads, we headed to a Kentucky Derby Party!
I made delicious Mint Juleps for the crowd while we enjoyed Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Kentucky Bourbon Sauce and many other culinary delights. Once again, we made fabulous memories!
Make Those Memories
When we look back on our lives, we think about special times -those unforgettable moments. Everything we own can never replace the memories we make with friends, family, and travel. Be present and experience all the moments right there in front of you. Enjoy the simple pleasures of life and make special memories.
Happy Mother’s Day!
Happy Mother’s Day to all of you lovely Moms! Enjoy the pampering and enjoy the special moments!
