Life has been swirling, twirling....
"To expect the unexpected shows a thoroughly modern intellect." ~Oscar Wilde
and moving swiftly along. I am still catching my breathe from the wedding last weekend and many unexpected events have been happening, that have made life so much more busier....but oh, so much more fun!
First, we had a surprise party for Greta's 15th Birthday on Friday...so the preparations for that kept this Momma hoping.....and then a magical phone call on Friday evening from my friend Laura [whom I met on my Trisomy21Online community....actually we met online when I was pregnant with Emma Sage at ParentsPlace.] called to say that they were traveling to Indiana and had car trouble and that she was in the State of New Jersey....and guess where I live! So we decided to call each other in the morning an see if we could figure out a way to get together. The car was checked by a mechanic and they thought they might beable to make the trip to our house and so we had a weekend party here...picnicing, playing, celebrating the magic of T21.....and yes, drinking some wine!
The children all got along so well and when it was finally time to say good-bye on Sunday, there were many tears [especially by me, as Laura and her hubby, Mark were like long lost friends and we had just be most incredible visit].
Now the next unexpected event...I'm leaving on a jet-plane,,,,,don't know when I'll be back home again [actually I do....just thought I'd sing the song...lol!] ...with Rick for his work and I'm getting to meet up with some other online friends who also share the magic of T21 in their lives.....
How absolutely incredible....what an amazing gift life truly is.
So when I return,,,,be prepared...to see many photographs, from last weeks wedding, to surprise parties, weekend visitors,,,,and plane trip and get-to-gether and just moments of life.
oh, and if you have noticed....the blog fairie was busy working her magic on my blog....I just love the new colors and sidebars.....and want to say "Thank you, thank you, thank you"
