A new edition.... .

2011 has been a busy year thus far. This year Vinny and I moved into a new apartment, bought a car, and my amazing husband ran a 1/2 marathon. I'm ready to finally get back into the swing of things and start blogging again...

Last Thursday August 11, 2011 my sister Victoria gave birth to a beautiful baby Girl: Scarlett Sophia. Scarlett arrived at 7:55am on Thursday morning and weighted 5Ibs and 15oz. Don't let the small size fool you. This little peanut is one tough cookie.

I'm a very proud Auntie and thought I would take a little time to Brag about my niece.

Life as a Wife...

A few of My Favorite Blogs!

I have been inspired by several different Bloggers on my Journey to create my own blog. I thought I would take the time to share some talented bloggers with you. If you’re not already following these amazing people hopefully you will after reading this post.

My all time favorite blogger is Melissa Jill Photography. Melissa is a very Talented Photographer based out of Arizona. You may have seen her work on my facebook page. We hired the Very talented Melissa Jill to photograph our Wedding day on 10-10-10. I dreamed of having Melissa photograph our wedding. My husband made this dream reality for our special day.

Kindra Hall Tells All is another one of my favorite Blogs to follow. Kindra is based out of Arizona and is an amazing Story teller. Vinny and I also used Kindra's Story telling abilities to tell the story of our love for our Wedding Day. What I love about Kindras blog is that her personality pours out in her writing. She has a way of making you feel like your right there in her story. Kindra is available for hire for story writing for Weddings, one on one coaching, and performance & Festivals.

Babies are coming... some are planned and some by suprise.

In December I found out that my baby sister is expecting her first child.

It was a bit of a shock for me and to be honest.. I was Jealous. I just got married in October, I'm eight years older, and I should be having the first kid..... (So I thought)

After a few days the shock finally set in and the reality became real. I was going to be Aunt to a niece or nephew. I remembered a good friend of mine once saying to me
In life everyone has their own time line, not one is the exact same.
For my sister Victoria, her timeline would have motherhood on it sooner than mine.

Yesterday my sister went to the Dr. and heard the baby's heart beat for the first time. Victoria sent me a text telling me the baby was fine and the due date is July 13, 2011. My eyes filled with tears and I smiled cheek to cheek. I couldn't be happier for my sister. I'm looking forward to sharing in her journey of being preggers. I can't wait to see what is in store for her and my soon to be niece or Nephew.
