Keep it Simple

Good night, May.
And in a few hours...
Good morning, June.

 I say goodbye to May
 with a heart that is healing some days faster than others...
A heart that is open and ready as it can be
 for what is to come.

I'm grateful for small victories this week.
The bleeding ended yesterday, taking away the painful reminder that lurked around for 11 long days.
The worst is over, I guess you could say.  And with that, comes another chance,
a new chapter, and
a fresh month to unfold before us.

It was nice to have this week to recover. 
 We have our follow-up appointment on Monday.  And where I'm antsy for it, knowing that it will bring on a big mix of emotions...
 I know for the next few days, we need to try and keep calm, keep it simple and
 enjoy this "week of freedom."
Breakfast with Vania...

We were way too excited about ordering a Belgian waffle topped with 2 giant, heavy scoops of whipped cream and blueberries
still dreaming of you

And 3 thick slices of french toast with cinnamon butter. 


A date with Kerry and Veronica.

Good choices, girlfriend.

Her imagination was on all afternoon.


Cheeseburgers, compliments of grillmeister, Steve.

Along with a relaxing night at home with friends,
 Sean and Jen.

we succeeded at getting them hooked on the zombies.


And my favorite this week...
A day trip to Atlantic City for sun and sand and quality time with the Mr.

Love at first sight - a taco truck in the middle of a casino.

with a Lite-Brite menu

one lil', two lil', three lil' tacos

under the boardwalk
*sing it with me*

Steve looks superimposed in this photo.

Happy Weekend, friends.
Have fun
and let your hair down!

I'll be back after our appointment sometime
Monday or Tuesday.

Weekend Lovin',

Maria, babe, I am SSSOOOOOOO sorry! I haven't been online. I don't even know what to say. I hope you never give up. I know you will have a baby to love, raise & watch grow here on Earth one day. I wish you didn't have to go thru this. I may be miles away, but I hope these warm hugs reach you. Always here for you.
Your fellow crazy cat lady, Antoinette

Maria said...

Thanks for your comment on my latest post...I was in such an awful place yesterday :( On top of that, DH has been working long hours the last few weeks...and that's also got me down :(

How do you stay so skinny? LOL!! Beautiful pics of a beautiful couple. I promise that one day, somehow you will be parents and great ones. Thanks so much for your sweet comments and support. I'll need them in the upcoming months of recovery. Surgery is MONDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How did that happen??? Sending prayers your way. I'll send them before the surgery, cause I'm sure I won't even remember to pray for me after the aneshtesia. ;-)

Love you!!!

Okay seriously, those waffles look amazing, but be honest – they are just a way to get all the whipped cream into your mouth right? Holy crap I want to eat my screen right now. Also, we have your same grill! I TOLD YOU WE WERE DESTINED TO BE FRIENDS! You + Steve in Atlantic City… man what pretty pictures. You look absolutely fantastic. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. We are off to the mountains to go camping, and I promise to take pictures of s’mores and hot dogs and the pups.

Xoxoxo, take care and try not to think too much about Monday.


Karen Fieri said...

Your trip looked so wonderful, well deserved and most of all HAPPY!! Not sure why but after reading your post I am now craving french toast and singing Bette Middlers, "Under the Boardwalk". Wishing you a wonderful weekend and I will be sending prayers for Monday's appointment!

I like your attitude. Keep going places and doing things that lift your spirit. You deserve to be happy and my thoughts and prayers are with you and Steve that everything will work out for you both.
