I Wanna Be Forever Young

-'Young Forever' by Jay-Z
 Don't we all have that moment where we say to ourselves, "Man, I wanna stay young forever!" Well this was a weekend where I surely had a few of those "a-ha moments."

On Friday evening, JMK and I relived our first date some 3+ years ago by going back to Nighttown.
How much has changed over the years,  how much we have grown up, and how much our relationship has evolved since our first date. And Nighttown was just as we remembered it-- cozy, with great atmosphere, and live jazz music. (Sidenote: their patio is awesome, huge, and even has a waterfall, definitely a great CLE patio to check off your list.)

Although I surely do miss our early days in college, the bf can still make me laugh my head off and is always good for a fun date--forever young.

 On Saturday, we ventured out to Vermilion for my nieces' first birthday!!!! I can't believe Chloe and Lily are already a year old. Watching them explore the world and experience everything like new makes me totally appreciate their innocence.
Chloe: Ahhh! Walking is THE coolest new thing to do :)
Lily: And who new that playing with keys could be so entertaining :)

Her future is so bright, she's gotta wear shades!

How quickly the girls have grown up!

Happy 1st birthday girls!

Life is just a piece of cake!

I have known Jules since high school, and I am sure there are times we wish we could go back to the simple carefree days when our biggest problems were what to wear on Saturday night. Although our lives have changed, and our responsibilities certainly vary from our younger days, it makes me so hopeful and happy to watch these adorable, happy, healthy baby girls come into their own. Being around them, brings me back down to earth, and appreciate the little joys in life. Keeping me forever young. Love you Lil & Chlo, Happy Birthday! XOXO!


  1. JESS!! you constantly amaze me. thank you for being such an amazing source of love for my baby girls. they (WE) are sooooo lucky to have you in our lives. i wish i could have caught up more with you and jordan at the party-LOVEEDDD meeting him finally!- maybe in about ten years when my girls don't want to hang with their old mom at their birthday parties , THEN i'll be able to visit during the festivities :))

    (and obviously you guys will be invited to every party between now and then!!)

  2. Sounds like you had a great day! I like being a young adult, making my own money and my own decisions. This is the best time of my life and I'm enjoying it.
