My son is brave. Always has been. He underwent a long surgery to correct his scoliosis and came out of it pretty unfazed and 2 inches taller. I took time off from work, prepared myself as best as I could. I knew that kids healed quickly, and that the surgery is pretty common but I honestly felt, for such a long time like I couldn't breathe until it was over. Sometimes I cant shut my mind off, as a result I don''t sleep, don't eat, and my thoughts become scattered. Thank god I had help.

Taking a scenic walk through a park in Laguna is better than Disneyland in my opinion. Steveo got to test out his new shoes that he swears make him run faster and jump higher. We saw where a boy scout troop made a flag representing every country out of cement. I got to sit in the lavender garden with Tom, and at the top of the path is a labyrinth with an incredible view.

I have been wanting to see this house for a while. Since my parents were here for a visit, I thought this would be a good time. The house was bought by the city of San Clemente and restored to look like it did when it was first built in the 1920's (I think it was 1920's) This is my kind of sight seeing. I love old old buildings. The view of the ocean is the best part. Very peaceful place to visit. I will definitely be going back soon.

Today after work I spent some time in Steveos world. It's cozy in there, especially when he plays Clair De Lune on the violin for me and Nigel. I am so proud. He can read music, and already knows 10 songs. Lately I want nothing more than to stay home and enjoy my surroundings. We move back in August and I am mentally preparing myself for another move and another adjustment and just savoring the moments here in this beautiful city we have called home for the last 6 months.

I love the fog here at night. It reminds me of San Francisco, which happens to be one of my favorite cities to visit. My favorite place to go now is Dana Point, this one spot I go to is never crowded and I can just sit with my headphones on and people watch. Steveo misses the desert and is looking forward to the move back. All I can do is embrace the closeness the 3 of us have experienced since moving in and make the most of our remaining months here.

A couple of weeks ago we walked downtown with Bellula and of course I took my camera and snapped away. My favorite sighting was the Cherry Blossoms. I will always have a love of cherry blossoms, they were the theme of my wedding.

I love u because...
you are like a zen monk
you have a powerful voice
you Are strength, and courage
you say what you mean
and always mean what you say
you are wise, but not arrogant
you love the strays I bring home
you took me to Maui (and didnt leave me there)
you are a protector
you are sarcastic, witty, and charming
when you smile it is genuine and sweet
you restored my faith in humanity,
allowed me to drop my armor and trust again
you made our house a home,
I love you more and more everyday Tom.
you love my teenage son,
and always have encouraging words for him
when I see you with Steveo
you are completely present and always kind.
Happy Birthday my sweet sweet husband!!
Love and more,
