Stop fearing and live your life


If you want to eliminate fear out of your life, the simplest way to do so is talk to a kid.  Kids have no fear to a degree and I guess that’s what gets them in trouble at times. But think of this, what do you have the greatest memories from and you more intense moments? Your childhood right? Think of all the careless, carefree things you did without hesitation when you were young? What kind of feelings did it give you then and what feeling does it give you now just thinking about it?

My kids do just that for me.  Not only do they bring me back in time, but they say to me, mom stop worrying just do it. So little by little I am.  Yesterday though I missed an opportunity of a life time.  I had the chance to go with both my sons(13 and 14) on a flight lesson over Piseco Lake in NY. Why? Because I was afraid.  That fear slighted me of something so amazing. How stupid can I be??? 

I guess I can’t beat myself up too much. Baby steps right? I fly high on the swings with them, I race on bicycles with them, we play manhunt at night, and we tell spooky stories by the fire.  I’m getting those feelings back and I feel like I’m starting life all over again. What a feeling!!!

Swing high on that swing my friends. Go for that rush you once had when you were younger.  You never know if you’ll get that opportunity again.

New York Blueberry Picking Season


It’s official, our second time blueberry picking and oh how we love it. It’s amazing that you can find the easiest and cheapest things to do with your kids that bring you closer(if that’s at all possible with my kids because we are pretty damn close).

We wait for the “Open Season” sign to be posted and off we go.

I’m partial to our local farm right down the road. I always say you can’t find a better blue berry farm anywhere!

These are pics from our first visit this year and we will be going again by the time it’s over.

Thank you Anndel Farms!

Sunday drive in upstate NY


Yesterday was Easter and for the first time Mike and I decided to go out for dinner and just hang by ourselves. The boys were with their father on their way down to Florida. I’m so happy for them! First vacation he has ever taken them on. Anyway, I caught what Matt is just getting over. Feels like the flu or something viral as the doc called it. Horrible. So that just summed up my day but we made the most of it.

We laid low, ate dinner at Lanzi’s on the Lake. Sacandaga Lake to be exact. It was a relaxing time and great food.

I didn’t get any pics from the scenery or what we ate because I wasn’t feeling too hot but I did get some pics of the sunset that I was able to get on our drive home.

I hope you all had a great holiday in spite of all the craziness that is taking place in this world that we live in.

Keep it simple and it’ll stay real.

Waiting….


It seems like a good portion of our lives we are always waiting. Waiting at my doctors appointment(like I am now), waiting to hear if I got the job interview I am hoping for, waiting to see if we are getting anymore snow lol, just waiting.  Muggy sitting on the couch, waiting lol. 

Thank God for the internet! Lol

Happy Valentines Day!! ❤️❤️❤️
