about me

My photo
Married to Nick for 13 years, with 2 children; Sabrina - 12 and Dominic - 11. I am a girlfriend through and through in that I love girly things and anything that celebrates the essence of being a woman. I love vintage, shabby chic, the country and try my best to do my bit for the environment. SO yes...we have 3 bins in our house and try our best to recycle! I believe that with everything in life, the closer we stick to nature, the better off we'll be. I would love to have a balance in life, but have learnt that balance is not always possible, so strive for significance instead, in the hopes that that will be just as meaningful, and the rest will hopefully follow.

this boy.....is a perfect 10.

Today's post is dedicated to our darling son Dominic - aka Dom, knucklehead, my china, or (as he likes to call himself) THE D-MAN.  Our boy turns ten tomorrow - double figures!...i hope that means double the fun, and with this little soul, that probably also means....ONE HELL OF A RIDE......:-)

AT 10, this boy knows what he wants, and he's not shy to say it.  But what I love about him, so very very much, is that despite his confidence, his wisdom, and his brave heart, he has the manners and respect of an old fashioned boy, which he knows is something we feel really strongly about....

I've said this before, but he really does make me laugh....all the time....and he is UNDOUBTEDLY one of the kindest, gentlest, wittiest, most lovable people I know.....I LOOOVE and admire his passion for learning (don't be fooled .....about things that interest him) and the brilliance of his enquiring mind....

He calls me on things....(my DH LUURVES THAT!!)

He's cool with his own company for hours at a time, but he's also just plain crazy about people too

I love how if his sister is hurting, he'll cry for her, and vice versa.....he LOVES ABUNDANTLY THIS CHILD....that's beautiful.

I love that a few days ago he said "Mom...i love myself".....I will always remind him to......

I love how, even though his sister loves animals more, when he sees anything in distress, it touches and tugs at his heart, sometimes his eyes will well up, and he'll keep asking if  "it's going to be ok"....

His face tells a story...usually a comical one.....but like me, at a glance you can tell what he's thinking and feeling.  

Last weekend whilst driving in the car, we somehow got onto how chilled he was in the womb, and he said "Mom - thanks for making me....." and then a few seconds later he said...."oh and Dad.....thanks for supplying Mom with the RAW MATERIALS!!"........LOL!...the whole car errupted into fits of laughter 

I am so grateful that he is healthy, happy and ours....


Mom...when I'm older I really want to make movies in Hollywood...

Always happy....unless you give me grief:-)
