“The Blessing of the Lord Be Upon You”


May you always feel as close to Jesus as you do today,


May you always count on Him to gently guide your way,


May you always trust in God to answer every prayer,


May you always feel Him blessing you with His loving care.




Last month, Mom and I were in Denver for a long weekend to see my cousin’s oldest daughter take her First Communion. She’s such a sweetie and was so happy to have the family there for the celebration. I also got to celebrate the birthday of her younger sister and my goddaughter. Mom and I also took a tour around Denver on Monday because we had a late flight. It was a lovely weekend away with family!

The 2014 Directive - June

I'm working along with a few other bloggers on these directives along with Jessica from Kate and Trudy. More info on the Directive is here.

Kate & Trudy The 2014 Directive


I know I say this every month, but I cannot believe it’s June already. The year is almost half over! Time flies when you’re having fun. :)

For this month, I’m going to focus on the French.

Husband has been telling me for years that I need to learn French. He speaks it fluently and we’ve always said that when the time comes, we are going to raise our children bilingually. With his job, there is also the possibility of a rotation in another office in another country. The first one he would be eligible for would be in Paris, maybe as early as next year but more likely 2016. For us to pick up and move to France, wow. What an adventure! Husband has lived in France and had a few opportunities to study abroad during undergrad and law school. I’ve only visited France and Spain on short trips so the idea of moving is crazy to me.

But as I’m a planner, I’ve got to get my ducks in a row. If we are going to live in France in the next few years, I’ve got to be able to speak the language! So, I ordered Rosetta Stone and I’ve gone through the first lesson today. It’s actually really fun, which surprised me!

So this month, I’m going to do a lesson per day to get me going on this new language!

Merci, dudes! What’s on your agenda for this month?
