When something bad happens, you have three choices: let it define you, let it destroy you, or let it strengthen you.

The heart of the difference is not ability or even talent, but desire

The purpose of life is to discover and develop your gift. The meaning of life comes from sharing your gift with others. - David Viscott

Guess what?


Just another "day at the office" or a walk down the aisle?

...and then up the aisle:)

Are we really, really ready? And isn't it beautiful around...

Yes, we are wearing Drymax. You know, it's important to do what works when preparing for such a life-long step.

Rev Camden, dear friend Craig, came all the way from Dallas to perform the ceremony. He read beauutiful words that rang in hearts fully...

...and we held hands, shaking a bit:)

And just like that, it was over. And it couldn't have been better.

The boys had a role, although catching a beetle (who is our adopted pet now and runs around the house) was by far more interesting:)

Happy looking. Simply happy.



Yes, we had to open a bottle of Soviet Champagne, for sure.

And have a chit-chat about races - what else?

"Big" she-bang of a wedding party at a Tex-Mex breakfast place. More racing talk:) I manage to loose Larry's wallet, and then it turned out it wasn't lost at all. Never a dull moment with me, huh?

We continued on to Harrison's first game of the season where he saved his team with a perfect goalie play.

And, of course, ate wedding cake.

As well as Russian crepes.
Sunday we went to the Sea World, to scream while falling upside-down, and to watch Shamu,

as well as feed dolphins.

All in all, it was perfect, wonderful, everything we ever wanted it to be. That concluded Larry's tapering and my 4th in a row 80-mile week of training for Cactus Rose 100 (Joe and Joyce wedding present).

Now we are off for an HHH - Honeymoon at the Hundred in the Hood. Larry is running, I am getting busy and bossy!
