In March of 1997, Josh and I started dating. After the first couple dates, I knew there was something very special developing between us. On March 31st, we went out and stayed up all night walking in the streets of NYC and talking about “us.” We have always regarded March 31st as our anniversary. Tonight, it will become our wedding anniversary!
This has been a very rough year. The shootings at Pulse, the sudden death of my uncle, the slow death of my grandmother, and the political upheaval of the election all took a toll on me emotionally. Josh has been very patient with me, as he has always been. My birthday falls at the end of the year, which is naturally a very reflective time. This year I turned 42 and I have come to the conclusion that my answer to “life, the universe, and everything” will always be my family. As long as I have Josh, JJ, AJ, DJ, and MJ by my side, I will always be content. This birthday, Josh took me down to Fort Lauderdale for a quick romantic getaway and we had a lovely dinner date night!
We have something exciting planned for 2017. Stay tuned.
Last weekend, we drove up to Orlando to meet my parents flying in from New York, as well as my sister, brother in law, and their new baby flying in from New Orleans. This was Josh and the kids’ first chance to meet baby L. MJ had a fever that forced him and Josh to sit out the first day’s events, but everyone had a great time the rest of the weekend in the Disney Parks. We plan to do this again annually!
