After our Disney time, we went on a Royal Caribbean cruise on the Allure.  It was a wonderful time spent with David’s family.  Again, with a lot of selfies.

On the beach at Phillips-burg, St. Marteen.

 San Juan, Puerto Rico

David and I took a Sushi making class at Izumi. It was so cool. Definitely going to do this at home as I used to make sushi rolls in the past.

Formal night…hate my arms but love our outfits. I love dressing up, and this was huge for me to go sleeveless.

Second formal night…always feeling sassy!

I would love to change some things but I wouldn’t be where I am today without what brought me here.  Lots of experience, right? And lessons, and a ton of blessings.


Changes · family · friends · Seasons · Uncategorized


My definition of family keeps changing.  I have my husband (and his family), and our children.  But I also have friends that I have considered family for over twenty years.  Seasons change, and we have changed.  My chosen family has changed.

It isn’t personal, it is growth.  Change is hard sometimes for me.  I like variety in my work, but when it comes to structure of friends and family I tend to be very loyal.  That’s is the problem – loyalty isn’t always a good thing.  Seasons are required for growth.  Love and understanding is required for family.

How is your season of family and friends defined?
