Thanksgiving 2011

Wishing all my family and friends a very Happy Thanksgiving. May this holiday find all of you happy, healthy and safe. I ask that my beloved weather goddess watch over all of you during your travels this week. May you all have safe journeys to warm hearths and berths this week. Even though this has […]

I know….

Ellie, this pretty much says it all… Girl says: I can’t promise you perfection, Cause that is not who I am. I can’t promise you forever, Cause I don’t hold fate within my hands. I can’t promise you the sunshine, Because I know there will be rain. I can’t promise you complete happiness, Cause with […]

Glimpses of Ellie and Addiction

Ellie recently bought new slippers. They’re fuzzy, warm and adorable. These slippers have bells on them and jingle when she walks. Personally, I think the best part of these slippers are the very pretty feet that go in them, even if she doesn’t think they’re pretty. She doesn’t like her feet because she has crooked […]

Happy Birthday…

I would like to wish a very happy birthday to my father and Bea, Ellie’s little sister. They were both born on this day, though many years apart. I would like to wish them both many more birthdays to come, as well as hope that they both have a fantastic day and a good year […]

When I said….

Since I can not tell you myself, I am writing this post and hoping that the message here eventually makes its way to you somehow. When I said I love you, I meant forever and a day, because forever isn’t long enough. When I said I love you, I meant warts and all, just because […]

Some Advice

Here is some advice that I think applies to most people…but I’m posting it here for Ellie. Life is like a taxi ride. You can go wherever you want & do whatever you want to do, but when the ride is over you’re gonna have to pay up. So you might want to be sure […]


Loyalty is both a vice and a virtue. My twin used to tell me that my extreme loyalty to the people I love was one of my greatest strengths and greatest weaknesses at the same time, because I often gave it to people who really weren’t worthy of it. I’d have to agree he was […]

Happy Anniversary

Happy Anniversary Gee. I wish you were still here. It is hard to believe that you’ve been gone for over ten years now…and that it has been 11 years since I was lucky enough to marry you. It is even harder to realize that you’ve been gone for more than five times as long as […]

More Glimpses of Ellie

Last week, Ellie tweeted about making collages and posted this photo of her jewelry box, which she collaged the top of. This type of artistic project is something that reminds me of the amazing woman I love…and shows me a glimpse of her still being there. Here’s another video of Ellie, in this case being […]

Commitments—Past and Future

I’ve been thinking a lot about this upcoming Friday, which would have been my 11th wedding anniversary if Gee were still alive. It is pretty hard to believe that it has been 11 years since that amazing day that we got married. I still get compliments on our wedding…and asking Gee to marry me was […]
