it rained cats and dogs....and then blew them sideways


isn't it great that you can pick apples 
and 
your friends
~
i'm still in chicago
 having a 
"girls who i blog with"
 outing
~
i have so many photos to share, that narrowing them down to a number that doesn't make blogger kick me off their site with an "are you kidding me" push, is going to be more then challenging.
 of course, that's what happens when one of the dear sweet friends has a new sweeter then sweet baby {who happens to love me by the way}
okay fine. he loves everyone. but i heard him call me auntie beth. really i did.
~
so after tomorrow 
and 
another day of having more fun then should really be allowed
~even when a monsoon literally blew through chicago~
i'll be heading back home 
filled to the brim 
with what only a girls weekend can fill me with
and
if i had a word for it, i'd share it. if i could describe it i would.
but 
i don't and i can't
~
but
there's a smile on my face and a really big one drawn on my heart, if that helps

  1. Great, Beth. I'm so glad you're having an outing with blogger friends. I just met Maggie, of Normandy Life, last week. It was my first real blogger encounter, and we hit it off immediately. Chicago, what fun! xo Jenny

  15. oh, too funny...

    even before i read this post, i replied to your comment on my post... and i said "i'm sooooo happy that you were able to meet isaac and get to spend some time with him. he REALLY did love you! i'm quite serious. i've seen him held by many people, and you were definitely one of his favorites!"

    so to come here and see what you wrote... you were absolutely right. yes, he does love anyone who will hold him. but YOU are for sure at the top of the list! you were so good with him, and i so appreciated all the attention you lavished on him, even with a sore back. thank you, from the bottom of my very full heart.

    i miss you, and we really must meet more often!
