One Fine Day & Sunday Music Choice..



Last Thursday, we drove down to Naples, FL to see my husband's best friend from high school. JT's best friend D flew down from NJ with his family for his brother's 40th birthday party - D's parents spend winter time in FL and they all decided to spend time together for the wonderful occasion.


It's funny how we hadn't seen each other almost a year and a half, but it didn't feel like it at all once we saw each other's faces.


We spent the whole afternoon - evening by the pool and beach, watching our kids play together. JT & D are good buddies and D's parents and family always welcome us with open arms. There were D and his wife and their two kids, D's parents, D's younger brother and his wife, D's younger sister , her husband and their little baby boy and us family. I've always loved spending time with them because they are genuinely kind, loving and wonderful people - they make us feel part of their family.

D's wife D also has become one of my great friends - she is super super nice and I love her. Actually, me and her walked down the beach together talking about our life and catching up while our husbands watched the kids play.

I took the photos above when our children (age 8 - 3) decided to hop on the wood that was left on the beach. I thought the pictures were beautiful and show how wonderful our time was that day.. I was so grateful and remember saying over and over again how happy I was. The littel things make me feel compelete these days...

After the beach, we headed to D's parents' condo to have dinner and some drink - we really had a blast and I was truly grateful that we're surrounded by the people we love so dearly...


Today's Sunday Music Choice:

"American Suitehearts" by Fall Out Boy. I don't know why, but I love listening to this song while driving in the car, window down, turn the volume Up, Up, Up and sing out loud while feelng the wind blowing to my face on on the way to the beach on sunny days. This song brings me up when I'm feeling blue...








And the song called "Until I Wake Up" by Dishwalla...
This song is totally one of my favorite favorite songs (I couldn't find any clip on Youtube except this one...) - I used to listen to this song late at night looking at the stars. It is truly a beautiful song in my book. It totally makes me wanting to fly to the moon and disappear into the space...






I hope you're having a beautiful weekend!

Hi. I found you on the SiTS blog and wanted to stop by and say hello. I am also an aspiring writer, though I think my genre might have to be micro-story, though I feel a little more ambitious than that most days.

Love the pics and the layout.:)

Those pics are great! I love how it's silhouettes against the beach. Lovely!

Those are the best kinds of friendships. The ones where even though you haven't seen each other in a while, you can just pick back up where you left off like it was yesterday.
