Moments That Take Your Breath Away

- Outfits
  1. When I realized I have seen family I don’t see very often including my aunts, uncles, cousins,  sisters, mom, dad, grandma and bf’s family all within two weeks. That never happens. How lucky am I?
  2. When the bf and I tore up the dance floor at my friend’s wedding to my favorite Lady Gaga song “Bad Romance” and he picked me up off the floor, twirled me around and dipped me at the end of the song. Man he’s good on the dance floor. Man I love Lady Gaga tunes.
  3. Yesterday morning when I realized (while I was all cuddled up with the bf and the pup) that I have my own little family going on and it rocks.
I have been a little more cheesy the past couple weeks, but in all honesty, it’s what makes life so great.  After all, these breath taking moments are what we live for, aren’t they? Simple as they are, they make me happier than any pair of shoes. (And shoes make me REALLY REALLY happy). Happy Friday Eve friends.

    Such a nice post! I love warm fuzzy feelings like that! They are better than any pair of shoes – but for the record, yours are awesome. :)

    Cheesy is great! We have to take time to appreciate the little things, and be grateful for what we have. Rockin' shoes by the way.
