My mom passed away yesterday afternoon.

It was a blessing my brothers and I got to go to New Mexico last weekend and be with her. She was awake and alert although she was in severe pain.

I was able to paint her toenails and fingernails, which had been neglected for a long time.
One of my favorite things to do with my mom is manis and pedis, so it only seemed fitting that we got one more in. I went to the nearest store and picked two colors I thought she would like; brilliant and vibrant. She of course chose brilliant, because she was.

My mom was the strongest, most beautiful and talented woman I know. She could do anything from making our clothes to extravagant birthday cakes. My favorite was the Cabbage Patch Kid cake. She was an exceptional cook some of her favorites were; caramel corn, cookies, mashed potatoes, fried chicken, I could go on and on.

I am a bit of a mess right now and all I can hear is my mom saying "Get it together Megan", so I will try...

Calendar Colors

Every month has a color. This stems from 1st grade, Mrs. Walker's class. She had a color behind every month and from then on I see the months in color. The problem is, I'm almost sure the colors behind her calendar had absolutely no meaning to her they were just the colors she could find in the supply room, but it had an everlasting effect on my life. Thus the new blue background. July equals Blue.
Anyone else see the months in color?

This is our first try at the blogging world....
Nick and I have been married 5 glorious years. Marriage is seriously the most fun of all time.
Nick and I have enjoyed many travels, nowhere exotic but fun nonetheless. Some of our favorites are visiting family in Florida, shout out to Bonifay! New York City to see the Yankees play, it was Nick's best birthday to date. Las Vegas, sorry no gambling just sitting in the warm weather and playing tennis at 10:30PM. Washington D.C., we love that everything is free and the best history lessons ever. Our bus tour to The Sacred Grove in Palmyra and Niagara Falls. Although the trip cramped our style because of the bus ride and Nick's long legs, we had so much fun with my old stake in Florida. I can't leave out the family reunions. Marrying into Nick's family has the best perk of fabulous family reunions. The Outer Banks in North Carolina and gorgeous SunValley, Idaho. We have a wonderful family and being with them is the best part of our life.
