A one in a million shot!
Pope Francis came to the USA last week, and THOUSANDS of people went out to meet him. Only a lucky few got to meet the pontif in person.
This past weekend, a miracle occured! I was able to snap a photo of the Holy Father with both of my children at the St. Killian's October fest! The kids were SHOCKED with enthusiasm. They couldn't believe their luck!

The BIG 75 !
My dad is officially 75 years old!!
I can't believe he made it! About 3 years ago, he had quadruple bypass surgery on his heart, and yet, here he is, in all of his glory, living it large! And to celebrate this grand achievement, i organized a trip to Palm Springs for the big occasion. Not just me, mind you, but the ENTIRE FAMILY. 13 people in all, and we had a BLAST.
I organized the same trip 5 years ago for his 70th birthday. This one turned out even better, probably because the then-babies are actual fun & exciting kids now! So much fun!
A whole house for us with a pool, jacuzzi, guest house, grill n' cabana, and even a putting green! Check out our adventures below.
