Where's the Love? Wednesday - Nana Hilda's moon

The love today is in a sweet memory I always want my girls to remember.
When I had just found out that I was pregnant with Emma, my dear mother in law was fighting her battle with cancer and left us to go to Heaven when Ava was just 7 months old.
On the night that she died, the moon was in a crescent shape and was shown to us just moments after she had passed. It was a happy face crescent moon. And an hour or so after we saw it, it was gone. Like it was her way if telling us she was okay and not to worry.
So everytime the moon shows its shadow and beautiful outline of a smiley face, my husband and I make it a point to show the girls and tell them that it is their "Nana Hilda's moon." Which in turn, allows her memory to live on in a beautiful way.
What is also super special is that the girls are starting to get birth marks which we call "angel kisses." Angel kisses that their Nana Hilda gives them as she watches over them in Heaven.

10-4 Good Buddy Questions (March)

Can you believe it is March?!

Well, today is March 4th and if you follow (and you should) Abby at Akers of Love, you know it is time....time for the questions! :)

1. What is your go-to meal to fix?

Tacos or chili. Super easy, quick, filling and delicious!!!

2. What piece of furniture in your home do you love the most?

I love our bed. It's the only piece of furniture that we bought, paid off and own. I also love my girls' beds, because they are gorgeous and are 4-in-ones. So we will never have to buy them a bed again! Thanks to my parents for those gifts. :)

3. What is your favorite picture from last month {February}?

See below. :) Awesome park nearby that they girls love, where I met a new mommy friend and enjoyed our fabulous spring-like weather.

4. What household chore do you dread doing?

I hate doing the tub and shower!!! Hate it.

5. What was your first car?

My first car was a 1987 Toyota truck. It was a very light, pale yellow, and was bought brand new by my Grandpa, then my mom drove it and then me!

6. What is your favorite bible verse or favorite quote?

Corinthians 13.4
"Love is patient, love is kind."
Kind of clique, but that verse was apart of our wedding vows and I think it stands for being a mother too.

7. Spring is coming. What are you looking forward to most?

Here in California we have had spring-like weather, so we need rain. Hate to wish for it, but I have lived through many droughts and it is not fun. But I am excited to see what color tulips will bloom around around front yard (we bought our house last year after they bloomed).

8. What is the first blog you remember following?

I say it is a tie between the OMG Mom and Newly

9. What is your favorite post that you wrote last month?

Bloggers alike? I think because I've never gotten so many comments or new blogs to read. (Thank you all!) And while I couldn't find the proper words to write what I was really feeling, I think I really realized while writing the post, that I have made a lot of connections and e-friendships that I wouldn't of by not blogging.

10. What's the last book you read?

Oh no. I have been meaning to go to the library or read The 8th Confession by James Patterson (borrowed from my mom), but read so much in college not for pleasure, I think I got burnt out. I read lots of blogs, so does that count? :)
