A leak isnt the only thing the neighbor knows about

The sun is out and bright. We were all geared up to take a walk next to the water again. Our favorite super calls and says there is a leak and needs into our place. So we scurry to clean up and I take the trash out. When I go downstairs I run into this older gentleman that asks me if we have a leak. He must be the one living under us, I figure.

Bernie, our downstairs neighbor invites me to his apartment to show me the leaks. Its true he does have a leak. We chat a little and I start to leave. As I'm leaving he grabs a handful of cough drops and tells me, "I hear you coughing a lot". Ah... so much for privacy. Just think about it. If he can hear me coughing, what else can he hear? Ek. Fantastic.

Oh by the way, the leak is not coming from our apartment...

The best thing to hold onto in life is each other. - Audrey Hepburn

On the couch with my pink throw and princess at my side listening to collaboration between childhood friends. A musical collaboration. Ben and Jonah are trying to write music. As Ben is playing something beautiful my Jonah breaks in with something that just pulls at the very core of my heart and I look up at him and wonder how in the world I got so blessed. This man holds my heart for all the right reason and even the wrong ones.

I am naturally drawn to my very best friend and I truly could not be happier. Not to say that we arent a normal couple with our mundane annoyances with one another. But my goodness if Im not the luckiest, and most of the time the happiest, darn girl in the whole world I wouldnt know what it even looked like.

This morning we woke up, had our protein smoothies, and took a long walk near the water and talked. We had a fantastic time this morning. We came home and cleaned the house and I went to get my hair washed and blown while the boys worked with guitars.

Tomorrow at the Dvorak-Quiah house we will be celebrating Easter by church and going to an Easter dinner party. We are really looking forward to it. God is so wonderful to us.
