In Sickness And In Health...

Cake is my life... my heart... the love I thought I would never find.  The man that I would definitely do anything for. He has raised along with me all 3 of my children. We have created a history together.
We have battled the world of all archenemies like Batman & Robin.
At one point we owned a business that was doing quite well then just as fast we lost it... We watched the births of our 2 daughters and watch people leaves us just as fast... Grandmothers his and mine. My father. Uncles and Aunts. My kid brother. And yes, I am still mourning him... I miss him everyday at least once. And against all odds we are still together...

Like Salt and Pepper.


Cake and I New Years Eve 2009 3 months Pregnant with Mia


This week and this weekend was another one of those times when we relied and leaned on each other...
My weekend plans went from being the host of a Martini night to various trips to the emergency room. We were all sick... the whole house... it was like a nightmare...fighting for bathrooms, ginger ale and Gatorade. Rock paper scissors to see who would be the lucky one to take care of the baby because we all felt like death.

But these are the times that as a family we rally. These are the times when I am so proud of who my family is and what incredible strength and courage we are made of. Better times will come. Healthier days will arrive and when it does we will be better people for it. We will be better to ourselves and others because selflessly and lovingly we took care of each other because at the end we have each other in sickness and in health. That is a vow that includes each member of the family not just dear mom and dad.

  1. Sorry you had such a bad week. I think the stomach flu has been everywhere. Our house had a round of it Tuesday and Wednesday. Hope the upcoming week is better.

  2. I hope you all feel better soon. That stomache flu is horrible. We had it once this year. 1 of my friend's kids had it 5x. I can't even imagine.

  4. Feel better soon, everyone. Not a fun way to spend the weekend. It's SO hard to take care of little ones when you are sick yourself, I've been there. BTW, you still look really good in your self-portrait...how do you do that? ;)
