unforgettable moments

"A mild breeze, sunshine, and a cup of coffee--unforgettable moments..." ~a friend

Cheers to all the unforgettable moments in life!

The earliest memory I recall is my 5th birthday party...and the latest memory to hold onto is the birth of my nephew, Vincent Van Roth. Welcome into the world, little man! May your days be filled with unforgettable moments.

There are moments out there to be made memorable still...take a chance at making the most out of every one!

I need to adhere to the direction given on any flight I've ever been on that goes something like this: make sure your own oxygen mask is properly secured before helping others. If I don't take care of myself first, my ability to care for others effectively diminishes quickly.
My choosing clean eating, drinking enough water, and exercising on a daily basis is how I put on my mask first. Am I perfect at meeting the n…
