This and That

Wednesday, June 11, 2014
First of all...COSTA RICA! I mean!!!! It was pure bliss! Here are a few photos to wet your pallet. I will share more photos and deets later this week. We spent 8 glorious days celebrating our 10 year anniversary. I am so grateful we had this experience. These photos are just the tip of the iceberg. If you follow me on Instagram (smallyspice) you have seen most of what we did. But there are so many fun stories to tell. 


Zoë June turned 2!

I have been composing a birthday letter to her in my mind all week. All about the wonderful little doll that she is--all that she does to make my heart swoon. I can't wait to put down in writing all that she means to me. 

Third--today is Lucy's birthday. Her 8th earthly birthday. It's hard for me to fathom that I would have an 8 year old. I am at peace today. I also have a birthday letter for my little Lucy love. 

And last but not least--

I'm having nose surgery on Friday, the 13th. Ummm...I didn't realize the date my surgery was scheduled for until I called a friend and left her a voicemail with the details. I hope this isn't a bad omen. You guys--I have a giant hole in my septum the size of someone who has been using cocaine for 15 years! I figure that while they are in there straightening things out and putting in a new plastic septum/divider, they might as well give me a nose job while they are at it. 

It's true! I'm getting a new nose! And I have no problem telling you all about it. I will be blogging a series of photos and updates pre and post surgery. I know many of my friends and family have mixed feelings about this. But the good news is that I do not. I know very clearly that this is what I want to do. 

"But you have such a beautiful, prominent, Barbara Streisand nose!"

"But what about the actress from Dirty Dancing who got a nose job and then she never got work as an actress again?"

Well--luckily, for me and my nose, I am not a famous actress and am not worried about no longer getting work. 

Oh, I will tell you so much more about it. Including the cat scan images of the inside of my nose and what they are going to do to it in surgery. This is going to be saving me a lot of problems as I age to have it done now. 

So there it is. Wish me luck!


  1. Totally awesome. I have contemplated doing so for years and years...worried that it would only affect my singing. Oh yeah, and the fact that surgery out here is 3 times as much as out west. I love following your blog. I love your way with words and how real and raw you are with your emotions. You are beautiful. And I am excited for you. Oh, I had septum repair 2 years ago...ouch. Sit upright at night, and don't run out of pain medication. You will rock whatever nose you wear!

  2. so what kind of nose did you pick?! ( pun...)

  3. Holy month! Happy 8th Earth Birthday to Lucy and 2nd to baby Zoe. Happy Anniversary! Also- I can't wait to seeeee all the pics from the nose job! Wahoo!

  4. I endorse every last part of this post! It's like past, present, and future all together!! Best of luck and speedy recovery!!

  5. Good for you! I am a late 40's Grandma and just got braces put on. Everyone told me your teeth look fine but that is all I saw in pictures and how much I did not like them. You gotta do what makes you happy. Good luck and I can't wait to keep reading updates.

  6. Oh Lucy, it's hard to believe she would be 8. I've learned so much from her, and from you. And darling little Zoe... Where does the time go??? She's growing up so fast - we've got to get together soon! Oh, and good luck with the rhinoplasty :)! Can't wait to see it and hear how it goes. Xo
