Love letter to Aiden Kai

Once again, to celebrate "the week of the young child", I write a love letter to both Adrian and Aiden.

Today is for Aiden!


Aiden Kai

… my little fire, my little love, my little brainiac, my little comedian, my sweet boy with the heart as big as the ocean.

Do you know how much I love you?
Words cannot express the depth of my love… my love for you is beyond this 
world. It is an unending source of support, hugs, kisses, and I love yous.

Do you know all the things that I love about you?

I love your big fluffy hair…

I love your skinny legs… and your knobby knees…

I love how you use your brain…

I love how much you love your brother…

I love how well you treat your friend…

I love how you treat the people you meet…

I love when you express yourself…

I love you when you cry… when you laugh… when you joke… when you are serious… when you are learning and cannot be bothered.

I love when you fail and have to try again…

I love you when you are mad at me…

I love you when you want to hang with big brother or grandpa instead of me…

I love the little things you do…

I love the big things you do…

But most of all,

I love it when you give me those sweet hugs and kisses and I love yous.

I love you just because you ARE you, and there is no other you…

I love you Aiden Kai!

Back on track!

I am finally back on track... a gluten flare-up is not what you want during the holidays when friends and families are visiting, but that just what happened to me.

Pain, so much pain...

It was with a strict determination that we trodd our way back to the "pure" paleo diet.

Here are some of the mouth watering goodies that have made an appearance so far!

 Above: Pasture-raised pork ribs barbequed with spicy homemade barbeque sauce and organic potatoes. Lumpy coconut mashed potato and organic mixed greens

Below: Grassfed lamb chops seasoned with Jamaican jerk seasoning, oven-roasted organic potatoes, organic mixed greens and certified organic radish sprouts.

Yummy! No pain!

Snowy Day!

We've been waiting for some snow to stick to the ground since the calendar said it was "Winter", and finally!

Hoping this is not just to tease me!

Appreciating Life

I will always take time to appreciate the simplest things in life! I am most thankful for all that is my life... love of two great boys, family, friends and all that the universe sends my way... including this morning's sunrise!
