Happy Memorial Day

I know it's late in the day and my extended weekend has come to an end. But Memorial Day is more than just a day off of work. It's a day to reflect on those that have lost their lives serving this wonderful county...America!

Bill's cousin Matthew Holly lost his life in Iraq a few years ago. He was an only child and just 21 years old. I didn't know him well....the last time we saw him was almost 16 years ago. It makes me sad to think that his mom and dad will never get to hold him or tell him I love you or see his smiling face. It makes me sad that they will never see him get married and they will never be grandparents. It makes me hug my kids a little tighter and it makes me more thankful for people that gave everything (and those that still do so every day) so I can live the blessed life that I live. Thank you.

In honor of my husband who is a 23 year Navy veteran, I wanted to post my all time favorite Bill's retirement video accompanied by my all time favorite Michael Buble song...Home. For those of you that have seen it already feel free to skip it. As for me, I could watch it every day of my life and cry every single time....just cause I lived it....and I remember how hard it was at the time, I remember what my family has sacraficed much more what my husband has sacraficed yet what an honor it was too.

See ya on the blog!

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
