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.

Sunny San Diego

I spent a beautiful Sunday afternoon in San Diego with two of my favorite men. The weather was completely beautiful and we just had such a wonderful day. We spent most of the afternoon at SeaPort Village just walking along the waterfront, enjoying the street entertainers, riding the Merry Go Round, watching ducks and chasing pigeons.
We live about an hour NorthEast of San Diego and try to get down there as often as possible. We lived there before moving here about 16 years ago (he is originally from Naples, Italy and me from Northren California). The beach is what we love the most...and miss the most!!
