Welcome to our adventures. I try as best as I can to document the happenings here in our family - everything from the shenanigans to the spiritual, from the kid to the kitchen, from the cat to the catastrophes. We believe that adventure can be found in everything we do...even in the mundane tasks of the day. When we set our minds on things above in gratitude to God, we find the strength to approach life with a sense of purpose & adventure. The adventure may not always be what we have planned...but isn't that what adventure is all about?

One of my favorite websites has a birthday today...and because it happens to also fall on my precious daughters birthday, I thought it would be appropriate to enter their weekly contest with this submission, taken in front of our Christmas tree just a few weeks ago:

Tomorrow my baby turns seven years old...

Am I really old enough to have a seven year old? It seems like just yesterday that I was carrying her little body around in mine... It seems like just yesterday that she was potty training or starting her first day of preschool or losing her first tooth.

Why does time go by so fast?

I can't believe I've been married over 10 years. I can't believe that I've known my husband for over 14 years. I can't believe that I've lived away from home for 17 years. I can't believe that in the blink of an eye, it all goes by so fast.

Today, I promise to cherish what is precious to me...

I promise to hug my sweet seven year old and send her on her way to school. I promise to love on my man and tell him how much I appreciate him. I promise to tell friends how valued their friendship is to me.

I challenge you...take a deep breath and cherish those around you. Because you never know what tomorrow may bring.

Cherishing you as well...
