happy golden birthday to my sun – a boy with a personality as bright and bouncy as his hair! hunter you are sweet, hilarious, and more thoughtful than i ever knew a little boy could be.
but the very last thing my old man wrote was, “it’s hard to imagine that someone who has done so much in such a short amount of time is really just getting started. ant, all i can say is hold on….”
today my first born has completed an entire rotation around the sun and truth be told, my hormonal pregnant butt is feeling pretty emo about the whole thing. from the moment he was born hunter has been anything but normal. i guess considering who his parents are, we should have expected as much.
today marks one year since the doors of k & co. salon and spa opened for the first time. in this last trip around the sun krissy has evolved into a full boss bitch. it has been an inspiration to watch someone i love so deeply push through the terrifying early days of small business uncertainty.
growing up i was never without a pet. first there was luke. my father rescued the black lab from starving in the streets and to this day considers the dog he long buried the greatest friend he ever had.
my magical trip to maui feels like a lifetime ago.
it is my first valentine’s day as a married woman, but i must admit another man has already stolen my heart.
there are a few stories i never tire of hearing. my all time favorite is one i have heard once a year… every year… since my very first year.
the door to the gym where i get my fitness on boasts a sign which brilliantly states: “because today is another chance to get it right.” this quote greeted me upon my first visit to the gym and has since served as a daily reminder to throw all my effort into each workout. as the days rolled on into a new year i began turning those words over in my head.
i kicked off the new year by scoring some old vinyl. after reading ‘shout it out loud – the story of KISS’s destroyer and the making of an american icon’ by my friend and author james campion i could not wait to get my hands on a vintage destroyer album.
