Last year after Christmas I posted a Wordless (almost) Wednesday about Christmas Emotions. One of the stories there was about Joey and his innovative wrapping techniques. This year I have another story to tell pertaining to a new method of wrapping Joey came up with this year! For whatever reason each one of our children(…)

Forsaking All Others ~ Wedding Vows

Forsaking All Others ~ Wedding Vows

What happened to “’til death do us part”? How did we get to this place where more than 50% of marriages end in divorce, and so many just don’t bother to get married anymore? Where is the commitment, through the good and the bad?  What happened to forsaking all others?  What happened to our wedding(…)

On This Day….1998

On This Day….1998

  14 years ago today I married my best friend, the one person I know I can rely on, the father of my children, the one I would be lucky and wholly blessed to spend all the rest of my years with. We did it without the bat of an eye, or a doubt in(…)

The 12 Days of Christmas……Ciravola Style!

The 12 Days of Christmas……Ciravola Style!

Earlier this month I posted about us writing our own version of the 12 Days of Christmas. Believe it or not we managed to finish it just in time to share it with everyone for Christmas! Chloe and I wrote the words, we all sang it together, we did a “scavenger hunt” to take all(…)

“The Baby”

“The Baby”

  Truth be told the one writing this story should be Joey, as this his memory to tell. Shoulda/woulda/coulda, but isn’t! 🙂 Instead, I am telling it for him! We were recently driving home from nowhere in particular and he asked me if I remembered our very first “family” outing with Chloe, the baby, after(…)

It’s the Little Things Thursday

LIVE LIKE THE CHILD Live like the child in the present. Cherish each moment somehow! Glory in life as it passes, … Hold and delight in the now. Walk in the light of the present. Live every moment as last, Dimmed not by the rays of the future, Nor clouded by shades of the past.(…)

It’s the Little Things Thursday

We spent this 4th of July holiday camping with friends on their 40 acres out in the southern tier of NYS.  It was a much needed and enjoyed break from our busy lives.  For us there was no internet, no tv, and just a little PSP for Jayden.  We hiked the creek, played soccer, tried(…)

Flashback Friday ~ Joey’s Old Journal

Flashback Friday ~ Joey’s Old Journal

As I was digging through the filing cabinet recently I stumbled across a notebook.  It turned out to be a notebook that Joey had kept as a journal for a few months around the time we got engaged in 1996.  I am not sure I even knew it existed.  If I did know, I don’t(…)
