Happy birthday, Lisa!


December 2 was Lisa’s birthday, but her celebratory dinner was on December 6. After doing some Christmas shopping, we all had dinner at one of her favorite restaurants, the Red Lobster in Fredericksburg, Virginia

As for her actual birthday, we had a small celebration on that evening, too. The evening included:

This year has been a crazy one! There was that car accident, and my mom’s passing. But there was also some amazing travel, and some great times with the kids!

Let’s see what the next one brings!


Happy birthday, Lisa!


Lisa Vedeckis was born on this day, in Chicago, Illinois, to Wayne and Mary Vedeckis. I suspect Lisa would prefer I not mention her exact age, so I won’t.

I’ll admit that this particular year has had some real broadsides – like the one on the side of the house – but we made it through! Are you ready for the next one?
