  • Getting a St. Bernard (Chip–age 10)
  • Buying my first home (thank you FHA)
  • Seeing my oldest child blow out birthday candles (I loved this so much I started lighting a birthday candle for her to blow out for all of her meals–the pot pie was the greatest)

  • In Seattle in the middle of the night, in a hot tub and it was snowing
  • In the Gulf of Mexico when we ended up in a school of dolphins on a SeaDoo
