Moving on UP!

Me & Mom in The Old Market, Omaha.

The family 
is a haven
 in a heartless world.
 - Christopher Lasch

A few more photos to share from our Girl's Weekend to Omaha. Again...I am so grateful to my Mom for this amazing weekend!!

The Old Market in downtown Omaha is filled with art, music and so much charm!

Em thought this was pretty cool.

We stopped in a women's dress shop and found a man with this lizard on a leash!

Another pic of Em...this time in the Desert Dome at the Henry Doorley Zoo. 

We can't wait to go back with Dave and Jacks.

Spending time with those you love is so healing for the soul.

Hey...I need to tell you who WON our prize from Week 6!! Congrats to Annie Bella!!
Annie...please shoot me an e-mail with your address...les262@embarqmail.com

Everyone that won prizes throughout the course...I am getting everything in the mail by the end of this week. Soooo sorry for the delay.

A few more things before I go. My wonderful husband, the love of my life, my very best friend...

Dave and I have made a promise to one another. We are DONE. Done with the heartache and sorrow that has plagued us for months. Done with feeling sorry for ourselves. Done with the depression, the late night eating and pity parties.

We are READY to move on. 
To look at our life for what it is. 

A gift.

 A gift given to us from our Father in Heaven. 

Despite all that has been wrong in our lives these past few months...
we are still so very blessed.

 We have our family 
and our friends
 and our faith. 

That is all we need.

 It really is.

Oh...and one more thing. 

This oh, so inspirational Somerset Studio mag from last summer is THIS summer's teacher. Stay tuned for more on that.

How are you all doing???


  1. I am so glad that you and Dave are so united and are moving forward with such determination and a true understanding of what is most important.

  2. I'm so glad you enjoyed your getaway! And that you were able to come home and make a great resolution with your husband. With your love and faith, you can't help but make it through! :-)

  3. That's a great pic of you and your mom. Oh very special - and with Mother's Day right around the corner. I lost my mom in 1991 - so long ago. I can see that you all had a great time.

    It's great that you and your husband have such a strong relationship. In it together - that's the way it's supposed to be!

  4. Looks like fun with mama...oh family is what counts...always...and how am i doing...busy as always...too much to do and not enough time...xxx

  5. I am so glad that you had that time with Em and with your Mom. What wonderful memories and moments to recall for years and years! And the pledge that you and Dave made to each other . . . priceless.

    I like you two, a lot! Wish we lived closer! I think we'd be good friends!

  6. That's awesome!!! I LOVE how you shared this with us!!


I appreciate your thoughts and ideas...they inspire me!! I will be visiting you soon. Have a CREATIVE day!!
