A Family Affair a wedding is in the air August 12 2017

 

Celebrating a bridal shower with family and friends

Matthew and I

 

The future Mr. and Mrs. Matthew Delisle Matthew and Lauren

In just a short few weeks we will have one of our 4 boys getting married. These moments are both exciting and hard for this moma bear! The fact that your children grow up and become exceptional young men, we encourage they to be good to others, as well as to themselves. Hopefully they can find someone who they can share every moment with, who truly loves them for themselves and be able to enjoy each other’s company.

Matthew and Lauren met while in high school, being together, getting to know one another and getting those calls in the middle of the night that one of them needs help or has been hurt, has been nothing but scary in those moments, but also lucky that they have found each other. They suit one another. Both are sports orientated, both are caring and loving and family orientated. Although sometimes they may not want to be around family, they know they can always rely on us on any given moment for anything.

Love is unconditional, internally inside and out, makes your hands sweaty and your heart hurt when they are not there anymore. Love is such an emotion that together they can grow, mature and make a life with each other that will make any parent proud.

As we begin to countdown the weeks into days, we take the celebrations as they come, for some are no longer here on earth to share these moments with us. We never take anything or anyone for granted and enjoy every day as it comes.

Congratulations to my son Matthew Delisle and finding your soul mate, Lauren Cartwright!!

Congratulations Lauren Cartwright for surviving our families and becoming a beautiful addition!!

This was such a great experience to witness to be able to share this adventure in the Czech Republic with my son Matthew and his team mates and new family members as they call themselves. 

The buildings and area is so beautiful and full of history, there is not one place that has some kind of history attached to it. Even visited a Concentration Camp in Theresienstadt, Czech Terezín, town in northern Bohemia (now in the Czech Republic), founded in 1780 and used from 1941 to 1945 by Nazi Germany as a walled ghetto, or concentration camp, and as a transit camp for western Jews en route to Auschwitz and other extermination camps. (1)internet info.  This site was so cool and eerie at the same time.

It was the first time ever in Europe for most of us and a learning experience at that, getting use to all the customs and the food let alone the lack of anything cold to drink there. The weather was very hot and not a day that was bad weather wise. But the lack of air conditioning was another rude awakening or the fact that they don’t use wash cloths. The staff would not let us have drinks with our food, something we were use to as if we were home. After a few days with the heat, we got the drinks anyways. The variety of food is very different to get use too for sure. Breakfast was different too, they eat alot of pastries, warm milk, cheeses, meats, tomatoes, cucumbers, as well as some soft boiled eggs and juices. The first few days there we explored the area and found falfal’s we all liked and ate those! The grocery store wasn’t too far away too. We found ice here!! YEAHH!!! To have cold drinks!!

Being involved in the games was interesting! Knowing that these players were ages 20 years old on up to 40 years up, playing against one another took on another level of stress too. Being this was world international ball hockey the rules were a bit stricter THANK GOD!! The way some of them were playing would make you think you needed a doctor or a nurse on staff at all times!

I can tell you the best day was when we all 25 of us, got to experience Prague with a guided tour on motorized scooters! So much fun! We were split up into 2 groups, with each group and guide took off exploring the areas. Our guide was so fun we went to the top of the mountains and down again, even with a few wipe outs! me included, we all survived a great day!!

Now that the month has come and gone and we look back at all the photos and see the social media posts, the websites for stats and game reviews, the guys can look forward to the next years game in Russia or Solavakia, another great experience for the team mates to enjoy and possibly take home some medals!

Being 4th in the worlds is now small feat, but a well accomplished one and earned for each of the guys on the team.

Until next time, enjoy your time together and remember the time aboard.

Congratulations to @greatbritainteam2017

December Holidays and Wishes!!

2014-clipartpanda-com-about-terms-Zy1J4f-clipart

 

Holiday family photos are always a great gift ideal to pass along to your families and friends!!

merry-motif-red-bow

It is that time of the year once again, as we prepare ourselves for the holiday season Christmas!! It is a joyous time of the year especially for those little ones in your home, while it is also a challenge for those who are older or perhaps have other issues going on. So take the time to make sure who ever you meet during this holiday season, you are aware of those people who may just need that extra hug or smile to get them through these challenging times. Prepare your holiday spirit with kindness and love, challenge yourself to help those who may need it.

Lots of things have been going on in our households, many relatives having surgery, kids changing jobs or moving friends. Life is never dull around here, but you know if you had nothing to look forward to whether it is helping those around you or just someone in your community, we would be totally bored. It is just how we are made internally, passionate of helping others. Keep life sparkling with Love.

As I look out the window today, the snow is starting to fall, finally!! As we have been blessed with such unseasonal warm weather with a few twists, we did have a snow storm fly in one day!! We can all get better prepared for the next few weeks ahead of us. It should bring us all together and be Thankful for what we have now. Take the time to enjoy your families and friends and perhaps that stranger you keep meaning to say Hello too or that senior citizen you see on the streets. Be kind, Be Loving, Be true to you and others.

I would like to take this time to let all my family and friends and clients, know that I appreciate each and every one of you!!

Whacky Wednesdays!!

Knowing all the things you have endeared in your lifetime, isn’t it nice to know that you do have the power to go forward in life and make a difference? All we have to do is believe in our selves and perhaps have a few friends and family members to keep us on track and be able to tell each other how we feel at different times to assist in those moments, we all have to be able to go forward and make it work. Having the faith and belief that we can, as well as having the positive enforcements of others, makes us stronger. 

Being in business for yourself certainly has many challenges, keeping up with all the information needed to learn how to effectively keep it running, accounting, marketing, customer service, dealing with all situations keeps you on your toes most times and also very grateful for those who have worked with you thus far and continue to do so. There are many classes out there to help you with the various options you need to help run your business effectively and efficiently too. Which brings me to updating information. How often do you feel the need to update your educational values for your businesses? Meaning, do you update any certificates or classifications so that your customers have more of an understanding that you are informed properly of your particular business and how it is run? Do you continuously ask for testimonials from your clients? I can say personally, I at times will ask, but truthfully will forget when I get too busy as well for my own business. It is a learning experience knowing when to ask or when not to ask. Having the freedom and the courage is always good.

Courage. Do you feel you have enough of it? Just like the movie, The Wizard of Oz- The Lion seeks out courage from the Great Wizard of Oz.    Everyday we all need courage to keep going forward, and knowing when to ask for help when it is needed. Setting you goals, your wishes for your business will help you keep you courage within your business and personal lives. Positivity and common sense are always needed. Getting assistance when it is needed will help you grow within and keep on track with your business as well.

Just like my logo above, it is a piece of me and my dreams. Photography has been in my blood for many years with many family member’s as photographers. It is my passion that through out the years, I have turned it into my business. I love being able to take a client’s photograph, or an event or even real estate photography, all showing to the clients what it is that I see through my lens. Beauty, passion, peace, Love, and Life!! My Monarch Butterfly is a symbol for me, a new growth and freedom. This transformed after my mother had gone through Breast Cancer over 5 years ago, and now is in remission. The Irish Claddah within the wings of the butterfly is in respect to my Irish husband’s heritage, being born of Irish family from Cork and Dublin, Ireland. One day I hope to see this country and its beauty and history. History, without this we are not anything. Knowing your history helps you get though each day, working for a better world for you and your own families and friends.  Personality, that is how we attract others. What we do, how we do what we do, how we treat others and making sure that what it is your are doing is true to you and others around you.

Keeping yourself true and positive is a challenging chore. If I find the need to reconnect I do this near the water.

Peace, tranquility, being grounded within getting a handle on the things you need to do and making those choices all while listening to the sounds of the water and being able to share the beauty of mother nature will always help you. Perhaps it also helps knowing I was born in February, and my zodiac signs are a Fish, Pieces. This is something that I feel truly helps me stay grounded and become the person I am today. My family and my friends are my world. Meeting new people each and every day makes you stronger as a person.

I hope this gives you some insight on myself and how I treat myself and others, as we all could use some kindness in the world along with some great true meaningful friendships too. Keep your outlook positive and uplifting, if you need a hand don’t be afraid to ask someone.

Have a truly remarkable day filled with love and happiness!!
