Summer in October.

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
-looking back on this dreamy week-
warm & breezy sunrise by the ocean
lounging in the pool with frozen drinks & more drinks.
morning massage by the ocean with my husband.
mexican flea markets, glass factory & whale watching.
holding hands & snorkeling together.
glass bottom boat to Lovers Beach, losing my sandals in the Pacific.
Laughing so hard & rounds of Tequila Boom Boom.
Leaving our marks in Cabo Wabo.
the smell of cigars. 
tasting my first omelet & kiwi.
Allison enjoying sushi!
listening to Brian speak nearly fluent Spanish. (or so I thought.)
Robbie. (spotlight was on him.)
skyping with Brady and singing him to sleep. while i cried.
quesadillas, burritos & enchiladas for breakfast.
laughing & running while we try to catch our flight.
having wonderful friends to share the week with.
realizing how fortunate we really are.
bringing home sand in my suitcase.

Good morning from Cabo.

Breakfast. A feast.

With intentions of seeing fish while snorkeling, we saw something much larger while on the boat...
One of the most beautiful things I've ever seen.

Last morning in Mexico.

Our outing together.

Dinner Sunset.

What an incredible week.

... and then it was time for home sweet home. 
From Summer to Fall.
From 90 degree sunshine to 40 degree rain...
 It's the little guy's first Halloween, first costume & it's a cozy, comfortable kind of season to be home enjoying!
Next trip: NYC Darling!

Our weekends lately have been most lazy. I've adjusted my thoughts to let go of the house (although, Sunday nights have been more difficult) on weekends and focus on what matters most.
Friday night was spent in the front yard playing together & talking with our sweet neighbors.
Saturday, Brady and I enjoyed the wonderful weather in downtown Greenville with Dad. 
The weekend was just all around good.

Brady watched the ducks take a bath.

We stood on the bridge & ate lunch together.

Dad took Brady shopping for a Dump Truck.

Yes, this is what makes me happy. Dad was happy, too. I think he and Brady will remember this day together.
Counting my blessings.

October 6th, 2007.

 October 6th, 2007
The very beginning of our life together.
Handsome is quite the understatement.

Four years ago, I married Brian Cox. He's my everything. He's smart, he's happy, he's such a loving husband. He makes me laugh when I'm trying to be mad, he holds me when I've had my bad days, and most importantly today, he has a son to show the ways of being a gentlemen. Brady Jameson is a lucky little fella to have such a daddy. I can say, from the bottom of my heart, my last four years have been like a dream. All the things we've been through together. No marriage is perfect, we've had our trials. I found this picture below of our accident two months after our wedding. It's a miracle we're all alive, and Brian was able to walk 3 months after the accident. We'll never know God's plan for our lives. It's unbelievable life's gifts He's blessed us with.

Day after day, I discover every miracle God has given us. Every little blessing. It all began when I was 16 years old! Thank you Brian, for making my life so happy. For being the husband that you are. For never giving up on our relationship. For giving me the most precious son.

Twenty Four.

My Twenty Fourth Birthday.

We visited The Cazbah for the very first time. The Southern Fried Sushi Roll was incredible.
My husband surprised me with a Kindle, some tunes from Bob Seger, and two precious cards.
Andrew and Carley spent their night out with us, too.
(Two peas in a pod.)

Brian and Brady J took me to my favorite place on my birthday.

It was cold, windy, and wonderful.

Brian said, "You'll like the view." ...he was right.

Then we drove back to our home sweet home to play. 

There were games to watch, you know.

   And today was spent around the house, taking a walk with the family, and a Birthday dinner out with the WHOLE family! This weekend couldn't have been any better. I'm counting my blessings, most definitely. Thank you to everyone for making my twenty fourth birthday an entire weekend's celebration!!!
