Madelines Memory

A Little Bit About.....

My photo
Madeline was my grandmother on my mother's side. She was an amazing little Irish woman. How blessed we were to have her. Not a day goes by that I don't miss her. I am the wife of my bestfriend, the mother of four amazing kids ages 25, 22, 17 and 4. I am a grandma to 2 beautiful little boys and the mom-in-law to a terrific man. I come from a big wonderful family. My parents are my idols. My dad was always the silent one and my mom was the "tough" one. I have so much admiration for them and love being their daughter. I have 4 sisters and one brother, but I only have 3 surviving sisters now. My sister Michele passed away suddenly in 1989. I married into an amazing Italian family. I believe in God and Angels, and Ghosts. Not bad ones, but ones that just can't decide if they should stay or go. I believe that if you want something bad enough, you just need to believe and it will be yours. I believe that everyone means something to someone and this life without you would be miserable.

Pink Saturday 5/8/2010 & Happy Mother's Day

Thank you Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for graciously hosting another wonderful PINK Saturday.
Enjoy, Dana

Last Sunday we spent the day in San Diego....What a beautiful day.
One of our favorite areas Downtown is Little Italy

This little restaurant had the BEST pastries and gelatos (notice the pinks)

Then for a walk back to our car I spotted a pot along the sidewalk full of beautiful PINK geraniums

Happy Pink Saturday to you all and a Happy Mother's Day too.
