All Of My Loves

In the spirit of Valentine's Day this month, I'm writing this post about just some of my loves.



My husband and I met in middle school, when he was still commonly known as Scott. We started dating after our Junior Prom, went to Marist College together, and eventually got married in 2005. He's great, certainly what I love most in my life. He's always been there for me! Below are some pictures of us from prom, the wedding, and most recently, at his sister's wedding.



We have two cats, "the boys," as we call them; they provide most of our entertainment. Rocky, a.k.a. Rock or Rockstar, on the left, enjoys sleeping and eating, as you probably can tell but does not come out for company. Pepper, or Pepe as we call him, is the social one. In the picture on the right, Pepe is intently watching the television in the basement - like father, like son. They are great companions and love us in return.





I also love crafting and making jewelry. I had never really thought of myself as a creative person until I got into making jewelry. Making jewelry and other beaded designs has allowed me to tap into my creative side, and has opened many doors for me. I've stepped into a great community on Etsy and Blogger. Other recent endeavors include knitting (not my forte) and my blog. I just love finding new clickable things to put in my blog! I've managed to turn my love for a hobby into a business. Luckily, I don't love it for the money, or my husband and I would be sharing the boy's cat food! Maybe someday I'll hit the jackpot...

Great job on the music! During my next energetic burst, I'll give it a try. I love the idea of doing pieces on your loves for Valentine's Day. I look forward to the next post.

Hi, I love this piece, a sort of
cool egypt flair, the deep yellow
kissed with the blue is just
beautiful - wonderful work.

Wow... Marist College.. that is a blast from the past. I didn't go there, but when I lived in NYC I had three friends who did attend (one graduate) from Marist.

Your jewelry is beautiful!
