And away I go...

Hi my friends,

It's been a crazy week. I've been bombarded with tons of deadlines at work, but I'm not going to complain. I have a job and it's all good.

My DH and I have some upcoming trips, so tonight he took me on a date. We had a nice dinner at Brasero's (no Jenny Craig for me tonight!).

I leave tomorrow morning to California for Mami's funeral. I cannot believe it's been almost a month since she passed away. I still think of calling her and seeing her and it just hasn't sunk in yet... This weekend will be difficult, but I'll be with my family. And, at the end of the trip, I will have some form of closure. I don't know how (or if) that will help, but I hope to be more at peace after the service and the funeral takes place. Her ashes will be buried next to my grandfather, who passed away in 1996. Ironically, today would have been his birthday...

My hubby will be home while I am away, working hard and making some travel plans of his own. He's going camping in some forest after I get back...

What else? I attended ScrapPink last weekend at Damaris' house and we had a great time as always!!! I worked on my BVI travel layouts for my vacation album. Next week, I will start celebrating my 33rd birthday with a scrapbook party!! Wow. I'm old!!!

Here are a couple detail shots I liked from our weekend in Naples. I really enjoyed collecting sea shells on the beach with my honey...





I'll be back next week...
