life goes on

This is a big week for my family.  My three year old Jake, starts soccer. I can't believe it!! Yesterday I was holding him in my arms and today, I can barely pick him up he's so big. My heart is a wee bit sad. I'll make sure to post some pics of him and his buddies trying to figure out how the game of soccer works. 

Before that though, the hubs and I are making a trip to the beautiful San Francisco.  Have you all visited?
We'll begin our journey with shop talk, actually the hubs will with some local clients. Once that is finished we're off to our hotel in the city. Where we'll I'll quickly throw our bags on the floor and promptly head out to the fabulous Union Street/Marina District, my go to place for shopping and eating while in the city.
We'll begin our shopping at Lululemon, since I am in dire need of their amazing groove pants and then go from there.  Although my real focus is enjoying the day with my husband, Eric.

Following our day of fun, will be a day of news. We are heading to the city to meet with my husbands Oncologists. The first meeting of the day is with Dr. N, the surgical oncologist, who I am forever indebted to for taking care of Eric.
Then we'll meet his oncologist, Dr. C, who will go over his chemotherapy and any other treatments that he recommends at this time.  We have a million questions to ask about his cancer and hope to learn a lot from this visit.
Every time I write that word cancer, I still cannot believe this is happening to us.  What a whirlwind this last month has been. I know it might be too much for some people to read about on my blog and I understand. My husband is my life and his strength and love inspires me everyday. To not share this part of my life would make my blog not real, at least for me.  If any of you partake on this journey with us, I hope you can find some inspiration. Even if it's just to laugh more or to live life in the now.

I hope your Monday is off to a beautiful beginning.

  1. I am so sorry you are going through this - my mother had follicular lymphoma for three years and is now in remission. It was very hard to go through, feel free to email me if you need to vent, even to a "stranger". Take care - praying for you guys.


  2. Thank you so much Sarah for your offer of support, it means so much.
    I am glad to hear that your mom is in remission. It's so tuff to go through for all involved.

  3. Gosh, we are so young. It seems surreal. But I will be here, and I will read. I wish you both the strength that you need and the courage to go through with it all.

  4. Thanks Hope, yours support mean so much for our family. x
