Egypt - my most favorite place in the world next to home, in the great northwest. i long to go back someday...
Fisher!- my thirteen year old, only child for ten years. he is my heart and my soul. love that boys tender heart and wicked sense of humor. he can make me laugh those laughs that come out of your gut and makes me so proud i get a little choked up when i think about how wonderful he is.
Grandparents - there is just nothing like them and i look forward to being a meddling old grandma someday!
Heart - is where the home is.
Ice cubes - there was a time in my life where i had a fierce addiction to ice cubes! and i know everywhere in the portland-metropolitan area to get the best ones.

Karma - i believe you will get back what you put out into the world. from the wise words of justin timberlake...what goes around comes around.
Luca! - my first born twin. he always has a smile on his face and is full of the most positive energy, he gives the best hugs around your neck and makes my little heart melt.

Yardage - oh, this word has become a real regular in my vocabulary!
Zombie - okay, i'll end this with another confession, i have recently become addicted to 'plants vs zombies' on my iphone. it all started when my little milo got to my phone and started playing it and then i had to "help" him. well, helping him has turned into me pulling my phone away from him because he's going to "ruin" the game if he plays it. oy vey! i guess the child in me is still alive and well.
