Sometimes...


Sometimes your family isn't actually related to you...
when you're a military family you often forge fast and close relationships because
you have to depend on your friends the way you do your family-
And it doesn't matter if one of you move, or if you don't still talk everyday
because when you see each other again
you just pick up where you left off
walk in their front door (without knocking)
with your kids, dogs, and suitcases
and you're home

I love this girl like she's my sister,
her kids as if they're my own,
love her hubby like a brother in law

I love how our kids treat each other like family
arguing like brothers and sisters,
but sticking up for each other in the same way
and It's the coolest thing ever that they pick up similar interests
(and taste in clothes) totally by accident

These pictures were taken last weekend when we
went to visit. Thanks so much for a wonderful time!!

Starting today in our book discussion group, we're talking about
this book
Goodnight Tweetheart
I have to say, I didn't expect to like this book
which is basically 95% a conversation in Tweet form
between two incredibly witty people
but I ended up loving it
and because of it
I've become hooked on this show
Product Details
I have no idea how I missed it while it was running or how it ever got cancelled
because it is AWESOME!
You'll recognize almost all of the young actors in the show,
who are incredibly talented and you can see where it was a big launching point for them

I also have a couple cards to share...

and Basic Grey Olivia Paper

And for the day O'Love

I pulled out some old Unity stamps (I think it was the first Donna Downey set)
and just some PTI CS
I love simple!

That's it for today!
Thanks for stopping by!
Make sure to come back tomorrow for the
EAD MONDAY Blog Hop!

There's a Chinese saying that roughly translates to close neighbours/friends are better than distant relatives! ;)
