It's Good to be Me!

I was recently tagged by my friend Just a BeachKat to post why It's Good To Be Me. She used a quote that I love.
"A Birth Certificate shows that we were born
A Death Certificate shows that we died
Pictures show that we lived!"
I so agree! It is the moments in life that we remember.

So... I'll show you why It's Good To Be Me!I love to travel. I enjoy learning and experiencing new places. I like trying new foods, and new languages. It must be the fact I grew up as an Air Force brat~ the next move is always an adventure.I always have a project in the works... It drives Bill nuts. Sometimes my projects will overlap, but I am a get-it-done kind of a person. I may even verge on obsessed until I move on to a new project.
We have 2 wonderful children. Bill inherited them as teenagers~ not always the easiest time even for parents who love them and raise them up. They have grown into wonderful adults. We love it now when they come visit and fill the house with chatter- and the sounds of drumming. We both come from wonderful families and that is a big part of 'me'.
Marrying into the WhistleStop family changed my life. I have gone from a fairly private person to a part of a nationally recognised name. I am even published in a cookbook! The next cookbook is a part of my current obsession... stay tuned.
We have a princess in our home. Not Me ~:D The princess of the house is Fancy Freckles. She is getting older, and is deaf from those cocker spaniel ear infections. She can still sniff out a cookie though!

My goal in life is simple... to one day be able to do nothing but this~

If you haven't done this yet~ tell us why It's good to be you!

Hi Sandi,
I enjoyed reading your list. I loved that you said it with pictures too!


Tonja said...

It is good to be you! We all should stop more often and remember just why! Much to be thankful for...even in the rough times!

I still haven't done this one..Kat's gonna give up on me!

Sandi @the WhistleStop Cafe said...

Thanks Hope!
TonJa... we don't want to get on Kat's bad side =D

Celeste said...

Hi Sandi! I love all your photos! I have a cocker spaniel too! She's even the same color. Aren't they the sweetest dogs?

Be sure to check out my blog...I gave you a shout-out. =)

Peabody said...

I love your cocker spaniel! I am a cocker owner too.

Mary Isabella said...

I love your answers. I agree we all need to stop and be thankful for all the good things in our lives...Smiles

Sally said...

I loved this post Sandi. And I loved all of your pictures (especially the one of Fancy). You seem like such a happy person, and I admire that greatly.

That was just beautiful. I guess I haven't taken the time to think why it's good to be me. I'm going to ponder this thought today.

PAT said...

What a great list! I enjoyed it very much!

We lost our Cocker, Buffi Anne, at age 13. I know what you speak of when you speak of Cocker Spaniel ears. Those poor babies, suffer so. Buffi was such a little lover. I'm reminded of her when I see photos of beautiful Cocker Spaniels, like Fancy Freckles.

You know I never comment but that was just so sweet - and so you!
Love you Aunt Sancy!

Yes Mam, it does sound good being you. I really fell in love with the picture of your feet. I think we'll do one like that next time we're on a trip.

jennifer said...

Well done! You showed us your heart! Jennifer

tamlovesran said...

That's a great quote. I'll have to remember it. I love your photos too.
