Love while you have the chance

Curtis in his turkey hat!
Hiya Blogland. I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend.
Curtis's Thanksgiving in September was a magical, wondrous time. Over 125+ people came by to spend time with Curt and share memories with him. It was truly a blessing to see all of the love poured out on Curt and Ronette.
 Desiree's gifted SassyVamp was quite the hit!! I accessorized my apron with some rhinestone pins to bling it up a bit.
I don't think I rocked the SassyVamp as well as Pastor Rodney did, though!!
I stopped by the charity shop on Friday to find a bell for Curt (his voice is getting a bit week). I found this adorable APT 9 dress for only $6. It's perfect for pairing with bright colored cardigans. the shoes are MichaelShannon wedges I thrifted and the cardi is thrifted. 
Gracie and I managed to log 11.75 miles this week walking. Here is her adorable self!

I'm linking up with the fab Patti for the first edition of the bi-weekly Visible Monday!! Check us all out!!

One last thing I'd like to leave with you that I was really impressed upon this weekend. don't hesitate to tell the ones close to you how much you love them while you can. We aren't promised tomorrow.

what a sweet couple. Sad to see someone young sick.

Looks like Gracie is stepping into Divadom with no problem.

Patti said...

how wonderful that Curtis has loving friends like you, and more. Life is indeed promised to no one, it's precious. Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday.

You are so right - my sister's friend just lost her daughter suddenly. Life must be enjoyed each day, before our glitter drawer is empty.

Too right, always appreciate people while you can, you never know what's around the corner!
You certainly put a smile on Curtis's handsome face and both you and the Vic modelled that Sassy Vamp headband! xxx

What a beautiful couple ... look at those smiles! What a very special day for Curtis, surrounded by people who wanted to show him how loved and treasured he is. I'm so glad the headband was a hit, I knew the blue shades would suit you and I think Rodney needs one now! xoxoxoxoxoox

Curtis is truly loved! And yes, it is so important to focus on the moment and appreciate what we have today.

You are looking more beautiful in each and every post. I love your brightly colored cardigan, which reflects your radiant smile.

You're my kind of people, Tamera. May your goodness bring you many rewards in life. I have friends whose survival is tenuous at best so I understand your message of appreciating those around you.
I'm loving you in fuchsia - Gracie, too, for that matter! Thanks for being you, hun ;-)

Ah, how wonderful that so many people wanted to show how much they care for Curtis. It's true, we could all do with making the most of our time with our loved ones, it's easy to take them for granted.
You look quite the glamorous chef in your bling-ed up apron and Sassy Vamp headband! And the dress and cardigan combo is lovely. Keep walking, you and Gracie are a good team, clocking up those miles! xxx

You're just a love, Tamara. You are so right. So important to love those around us every day, and then say so, then do it some more.
You look wonderful ... dress, cardi and all are pretty, but you know who is always going to be the showgirl in the family! Adorbs!
