Making a come-back

So much has happened since I have posted on my blog--
Mostly really great things I have to be grateful for: being engaged to my love, finishing my PhD, and enjoying a new city and new job!

I guess I have a lot of catching up to do. Anyway--I am happy to be alive and kicking! So--if you are still out there waiting for me to post, I am making my watch for future posts!

Love and Light..

Happy Birthday Mike!

Today is my brother Mike's birthday! Happy Birthday Mike!!

Known as "big mike"--he has always been such a rock within our family. He's always ready to help me fix my car, help with my housing projects, help me figure out what to do when my furnace is not working--you get the idea.

He's been so "BIG" in my life---and I don't take that for granted at all. While he is always there..he's a rock that really cares and loves us all. I am so grateful for him--even if we don't agree all the time. He's my "BIG" brother and I love him a lot.

So thanks Universe for giving me such a wonderful brother!

Happy Birthday Blog

Happy Birthday Elise, originally uploaded by Alexandra Bill.

Today my blog is 4 years old!

Wow...time has gone by. So many wonderful events have happened...many babies have been born..and some very loved ones have passed. Many good people have entered my life--Vivek for one--and some have moved on to other parts of the world.

All in all....I have so enjoyed blogging about my adventures and I hope to continue (as time permits). Life is so busy---I hope to try and blog more to remind me to stop and be grateful for all that I have.

So "Happy Birthday" blog!

Fun @ Niagara Falls

Can you have fun at Niagara Falls when it's below Zero? The answer is YES! I really enjoyed hosting Vivek and his parents for a tour of the winter wonderland in Canada... Here are some fun pics of our adventure.

Yes it was cold! But am I ever grateful for this long coat! :)

Pictures from Christmas!

I so enjoyed spending Christmas with Vivek. He's a wonderful soul. I am very lucky!

I can't believe it took me so long to upload these pictures of our Christmas Eve bash @ Breckenridge... but such is life. :)
Aidy really was excited this year for Santa to come.

The whole gang was at my house--including Vivek's parents. Vivek's mom--Angela was so sweet to prepare a traditional Puerto Rican meal. It was so delicious!

Baby Sage is just so very sweet. She is quiet and takes in everything! And of course..we all just love her so much. It's amazing how much she looks like Joey! We call her LJ..Little Joe :)

We ate and ate and ate. Then we opened our secret Santa was really a pleasure to host this year for Christmas Eve. It was my first time and I really enjoyed everyone around my table. I am so very blessed for such a wonderful family, friends and a great partner! Thank you Santa for providing such wonderful people to surround me. I am truly blessed!

Life on the road...

For those that do not know (and I think by now the majority of you do)...I have been dating a wonderful man in Pittsburgh. I have been spending a bit more time than I imagined driving through southern NYS and Pennsylvania...
Here is a picture that I took while driving (that's probably illegal right?).
As I drove last Saturday, I admired how the sun rose to the left of me and seemed to kiss the white trees.

While I am not a big fan of driving long distances, I have come to enjoy the time in the car--It allows me to think and be grateful!

Grateful for my trusty Subaru, grateful for how snow can come brush us with a clean white coat, cause us to pause, relax a bit and just enjoy (or maybe---aggravate us, depending on your perspective)]...and grateful for all those in my life.

Especially for Vivek. He's a shinning star in my life. He makes me smile when life has gotten the better of me, he listens to me when I need to just tell my story. He's funny, fun, smart, handsome, a wonderful communicator, and importantly-- ready to travel to anywhere in the world (as long as they have nice pillows and sheets :)

He takes care of me in so many wonderful ways- but MOST of all--likes me for who I am. Thank you Honey--for being you and being a wonderful partner.
