Today my hubby & I repainted our sign. Kind of timely as we bought this at the Klondike Days in Edmonton which is on again next week I believe. We were heading back from our honeymoon back in ‘83 when we stopped on our way through & purchased it. I remember thinking aww I am a Nelson!
As I was painting it this morning my mind went to a time where we were just “Greg & Dee”. We were just starting out. 18 & 21 years old. Of course our whole lives ahead of us. Man the memories came flooding in! We were young, no children yet, no purchased home, just us two! Life was simple but good. I am so thankful for my hubby and all our years together. We are blessed with our beautiful family who we are so proud of and we have our health and we are thankful everyday for our journey together.
Funny how a sign can make one stop & count your blessings...We have many! ❤️ Grateful Heart .

“In the summertime
Girls got it goin' on
Shake and wiggle to
A hip-hop song
Are the kind I like
I'll steal your honey like
I stole your bike” -LFO

While cleaning and sorting pictures on my phone, found out that nothing was posted from our trip to Pompeii #flashback ... so ☝️
In Pompeii people definitely knew how to enjoy life => for 20,000 people there were 25 lupanari (brothels), 2 theaters and around 89 restaurants...👌what else do you need?👉just 'Panem et circenses'🙄
Satisfied (or not) brothel customers were scratching their reviews on the walls😄🤐 In order to find a way to lupanare one should follow the sign on the road (pic #5 ), can you see it?😋😇 *phallos signs* (Thank you, Mr. Freud!🧐)
Covered with thick layer of ash Pompeii stayed almost exactly as it was 2000 years ago. Well-preserved frescoes, graffiti (thoughts of Roman people, ads for elections, etc) and even loaves of bread!!! #impressive#minuteofhistory

A little self care Saturday #flashback
After working three jobs, and maintaining my house and making sure my family is fed and healthy I didn’t realize how it’s so easy to put yourself on the back burner.
My body and brain need some love and TLC, so with the day off I had yesterday I deep cleaned my home for 6 hours, spent some quality time with the doggos and did a hair mask, face mask and treated myself to my nails. Making sure my space is well cared for motivates me to make sure I am well cared for as well 💕#nothingwrongwithsomeselflove#maintaininghappiness#youtime#takingonefortheteam
Flashback: 7-year old Antoine Griezmann and his friend run around the 1998 World Cup winning France squad asking for autographs with boundless energy and enthusiasm.
Fast forward 20 years, he's a World Cup winner himself with the Blues. Dreams do come true😍
Somewhere today, a young kid may have seen his first World Cup game and taken to heart Pogba, Mbappe and Griezmann as his heroes. Tonight he will go to sleep, dreaming of emulating his heroes. Maybe one day like Griezmann did, he just might. This is the power of football.
Keep dreaming! Today, and always.
