"Sign Of Life"

What did I just say
Well, I can't remember
The room is spinning and
My Heart is skipping beats
Cause I finally cut all the ties
That were hanging on me

It's a sign of life
To be so confused
You jump and it feels
Like you're falling

You find the hope, the
strength, the heart
And just when you think
there's nothing left
Cause when it feels just like
you're drowning
That's when you fight for
every breath
You find the faith, the will,
the words
To break through the silence
and the pain
Cause when it feels just like
you're dyin'
That's a sign of life

Sooner or later
You come to the point
Where you have to choose
Who and what you want to be
And I made a decision
Not so long ago
To be happy

It's a sign of life
To be unafraid
You jump and it feels
Like you're flying


Break down
My reflection is scattered
Like ashes in the wind
I'll begin again


Spring Fever

My favorite parts of Spring:

  • Open windows

  • The smell of fresh cut grass

  • Birds chirping

  • Light Scented Candles

  • Fresh cut flowers

  • Crisp breeze while I sleep

  • Sunglasses

Here are some goodies from May that I created for YMBD! Enjoy!

I received my passport!!!!!!!!!!!! WOO WOO!!!!!

I never thought that a little booklet filled with colorful pages would make me feel so alive and mature. Reon and I are "planning" several trips... now that I can actually take them! LOL. Who knows if we will go on them all, but it is nice to dream. *relaxing sigh*

However, we WILL be going to Mexico sooner than later!!! Fingers crossed for next summer! I have it in my sights and you all know what that means! LOL

(we're thinking the Riviera Maya)

It is an awesome feeling to know that now I can travel the World. Watch out, here I come!

Here's some more updating...

The weekend after the wedding, Reon and I headed to Toronto for our monthly visit with Jarrod and Amy. It was another gorgeous weekend (weather wise) so we decided to head downtown for some good fun at the St. Lawrence Market!

It was really neat to actually be inside the fresh market with all the fish, fruits, homemade pastas and MUCH more. It was a sight I have always wanted to see and experience but never thought I would! (I was having such a blast checking everyhting out I unfortunately forgot to take any pics of the inside -- oops!!!

It was a great part of town with little booths lining the streets. They each had eccentric items and beautifully handmade jewelry. Reon bought me an incredible necklace that I am so in love with! **xoxo**
After wandering the streets we did stop to eat down the road with charming buildings surrounding us. (If you look closely you can see part of the necklace...)
The wind started to pick up so we headed back to their house so that we could get ready to go to some other friends' house for dinner. Our plans were put on hold when all of a sudden threatening clouds started rolling in...

...the wind was swirling so quickly that the house started shaking and we heard loud howling whipping around the property. Amy and I decided to head down stairs just in case, when Reon and Jarrod came flying around the corner with panic looks on their faces! This is why:
These pics were taken the next morning (note: Here's some perspective -- Reon is on top of the trunk and it 6'3" Jarrod is at the base of the tree with the roots and is 6'1") :
The tree that stood tall for years was uprooted a nearly missed our car by only a few feet! Talk about a crazy turn of events!

The night did end up turning out to be GREAT. Food, friends, games and laughter. What more could you ask for??

P.S. This is Gus, their funny little Cat!

Get comfy in your seats because here comes a month of catch up blogging!!!

So, way back in April, Reon's cousin Claudette got married. Unfortuantely Reon was unable to attend because he was out of town for work. However, it gave me an opportunity to have a girl's weekend with my friend Kristin!!

We headed out to Canada for the beautiful ceremony in Amherstburg. It was a gorgeous day for a wedding! So sunny and warm!
Claudette looked absolutely stunning and was glowing the entire time!
After the vows and exchanging of the rings, Kristin and I headed back to the hotel to "freshen up" and get our party attire on!
Some random shots of the rest of the wedding:

Poker faces (thanks to Lady Gaga!!)...

What is a wedding without some classic Jarrod moves?!?!...

...And some drinks (Mark doesn't seem to like it....lol)

Congrats Claudette and Jason! We had a blast!
