Why? my blog title "Better2me"

As a woman, mother, and wife my first instinct is to take care of those around me. I nurture those I love in many ways through out the day, but sometimes find myself neglecting me. Recently I realized that I need to nurture myself as well. So this blog is about ME!!!!! What fills my heart; my simple life of kids, husband, animals, home, and creativity. For being better2me leads me to be better to those I love.

Out of thousands of entrants, Keaton not only won the lottery for duck hunting, he also received opening day and is in the top 20, so he will be able to pick a prime spot! So excited for him!!!!

face timing with Kellan on his birthday.

Twenty-two, where has the time gone.

Dear Kellan, For the second time in 22 years, I will not be with you to celebrate your birthday. This breaks my heart! Not only did your birth make me a mother for the first time, it gave me a higher purpose. I have learned as much from being your mother, as I hope you have from me. And now I find myself in the enviable position of calling you friend. What a great gift. I am so thankful that you have such amazing lifelong friends who will be there with you today. Happy Birthday baby, I love you!
P.S. To celebrate your birthday we will be having steak and freshly caught lobster, thanks to Hoss. (you can still make it )
P.P.S. Remember when Keaton was smaller than you think
