Hello, August!

August 6, 2017

This is a month I try not to dread. Baby's Birthday is on August 13 and my mom's is on August 20. He would have been 53 this year. My mom would have been 82. He died too young at 22 and my mom at 59 just a month before her 60th birthday. I miss them both terribly.

I am lucky, though, to have my family and my friends, helping me to live each day to the fullest. We all know how short life can be.

This first week back from Convention (post here), has been a whirlwind. Back to teaching my fabulous classes, Bocce, Car show and Music at Oakhurst, Music in the Park and finishing today with a Going Off To College Party for Molly and Sara.

It was nice to have Kasey and Molly join us for dinner on Friday night before they're both off to college. Nic and Kasey were in Kindergarten together. Nice to have them all together!

Nat and I were twinning.

As were Kitty and Ollie. Sort of.

I spent a rough day working on my tan. But somebody had to do it.


Anyway, off to make some more memories at the Verderame's! And maybe work on that tan some more. Have a wonderful day!

My name is Rosy, Chacha, Meez, Mama, Mother...take your pick. I am the sort of stay at home mother of 4. Sort of because of my Zumba and my Rodan and Fields jobs.

This is my personal blog intended for my family and friends and for anyone out there who enjoys a good laugh, likes to try out new recipes, likes kittens and loves Zumba. Welcome!

My loves are my Honey Bunch, my children, my family, friends and Zumba. My Zumba site:

One of my favorite sites and one I'll be ideas from. (Hmmm. I already see my Nerd font is similar to hers. Hers is Edwardian Script and Mine is Beautiful ES.)

This is my nieces blog. She's cute: needs a facelift and makeover. I'll be working on that, too.

They need you.

They need you, too.
