Finally, I am blogging! Recently I have left the blogging up to Marisa but today I thought I start out with a blog post of my own! It feels good to be uploading new shots of baby L! Only a month ago I posted some pictures of my soon to be godson just days after he was born. Today I want to share his 1 month old pictures. Nothing formal, just him relaxing at home – (on my favorite couch 🙂 Enjoy!!
Honestly, does it get any cuter then that!?
I swear I wasn’t scaring him – he often has this look 🙂
Hey, Marisa here again…
Well, we all have our secret place–the place we can go when we feel down–our own little safe haven. When we were children, that place may have been a fort made from blankets and pillows, a treehouse, or even in a closet somewhere with a flashlight reading fairytales. Where ever it was, it always seemed to manage to make us feel better, no matter what the reason. As we get older though, we have fewer and fewer safe havens. We can’t fit in the closet, our treehouse was probably taken down a long time ago, and it would be foolish to build a blanket fort. (Not to mention the fact that we probably couldn’t fit in one.) And although having somewhere to escape everything is a nice, we also now know that hiding for an hour or two won’t make our problems go away. It is definitely important to have somewhere like this, but pretty soon we come to the realization that we can’t solve the problem by ignoring it.
That being said, I thought this was a good picture to include. I took it awhile ago but there’s just something about how calm and serene it looks. It reminds me of a secret garden… a place where grown ups can go to just escape for the time being– a secret place… a safe haven.
Good news. The change of zodiac signs we’ve been hearing about all over the news is not as true as you may think. Apparently, this same news about the changed zodiac signs due to the shift in constellations goes viral every now and then. But, although it is true that the stars have shifted, our signs haven’t technically changed. According to this article on CNN, you are still the same sign as you always were.
So, read over the article and enjoy to continue being the same zodiac sign you were your entire life. 🙂
What’s your zodiac sign??
Hey, Marisa here…
So, I got a Phillies jersey for Christmas this year and it got me thinking about baseball–how fun it is going to games during the summer, and just the excitement of it all. Who doesn’t love baseball season?!
I have to say that this year is going to be an awesome year for baseball… Partly because I happen to be a Phillies fan and the Phillies now have one of the best pitching staffs in baseball history– Roy Halladay, Roy Oswalt, Cliff Lee, and Cole Hamels.
Well anyway, I recently found a poem I wrote last year while cleaning out my closet–about how exciting being at a baseball game can be… particularly a Phillies one. 🙂
A Night at the Phillies
Dressed in red, you pull up to the ballpark
You can feel the surge of excitement in the air around you
To your right, a toddler jumps up and down
Wearing a shirt that says: ‘My Phirst Phillies Game’
You catch the lingering aroma of burgers and franks
A group of college roommates tailgating
You see a swarm of people trying to get through the ticket gates like sand through an hourglass
You head to your seats in anticipation
The first inning begins
The crowd roars and the music starts to play
You hear ‘Kashmir’ by Led Zeppelin and you just know this game is gonna be good
Now it’s the fourth inning
The score—3 to 1, the Phillies are losing
It’s not over yet though
The fifth and sixth inning come and go
Now it’s the seventh
The ball park stands and stretches
Two innings left
Nothings happening in the eighth
You decide to get up and get a cheese-steak
Bottom of the ninth
You hope they can get two more runs just to tie it up
Two men on base
Howard’s up, three balls and two strikes—full count
A 94 mph fastball is released by a nervous pitcher
Your nails are bitten down to the skin
He gets behind that ball and nails it
“It’s outta here!”
Harry Kalas’ voice rings through the ball park
A sea of red and white stands
The crowd goes wild
You scream your lungs out and you know you’ll have no voice tomorrow
Nothing can describe this feeling you have right now
You knew this game was going to be good
Hope you enjoyed the poem 🙂
What’s your favorite baseball team??
