To Making it Count.

I watched Titanic the other night.. everytime that movie comes on, I am sucked in to watching it. It is just too good (and horrible) a love story to turn away from. I also have to watch The Perfect Storm, The Great Outdoors, Summer Rental, Big, Baby Boom, and Tootsie - whenever they come on.. There are a bunch of other movies that come to mind as well -but that is not the point of this post. Anyway - TITANIC - Jack Dawson says at the dinner table with the snooty people that he makes each day count and Rose says, "To making it count." And that is where I am. I have been introspetive regarding my girls and how fast they grow and how in just over a month, both will be in school.

My little Emily, with her curly hair and bright smile, and her neverending supply of love and hugs for her sister, me, and Daddy. She lights up every room she is in.

And Allison, with her inquisitive nature, her spunk and charm, and her infectious laugh.

To making it count,
cheers.

I love you and your family! Your girls are amazing. It is so important to make every moment count. I never really understood what my mom said when she said that time goes by so quickly. Enjoy every minute!!! Hugs and love to you all xoxo!
