Our June Date: Breakfast & Batting

Six months after Christmas, it's the gift that keeps on giving. :) Greg opened June's date from our date book and discovered we would be going on another day date and participating in 2 of his favorite activities!

Greg loves to eat. I love to eat breakfast, so this was my favorite part of our date.  Check out the awesome Cafe Au Lait that "The Farmhouse" serves and I drank it all, hehehe! We found the same size portions in the breakfast dishes we ordered, needless to say we were miserably full but it was so worth it!

The second half of our date took place at the batting cages, captured in the video below.  Someone (male) once said Greg has a sexy swing and as you'll see in the video, he really has this beautiful natural swing.  Now what about my swing?  Let's just say I'm the equivalent in a batting cage to Charles Barkley on the golf course.  Hahaha!!

July's date is just around the corner, I can't wait!! :-)

My 12 yr old keychain broke today.

I’ve been carrying this keychain for 12 years.
I know this because I bought this shortly after the Columbine school shootings.   
The inscription reads “Yes, I believe in God.”  
Cassie Bernall’s final words before she was shot to death.

This has been my one and only keychain for the last 12 years

A regular reminder of a young girls courage in the face of life or death. 
 She was only 17 years old. 
Cassie's story has remained with me all these years because of this keychain.

Now it's broken and my keychain feels strange.
It's missing a piece and all I have left is the word "Yes".

12 years after Columbine, after Cassie's brave stand.
I suppose it's time to move on.
"Yes" its time to get a new keychain.
