this weekend marks the 5th annual hack ‘n cast for my dad & a few of his best buddies.. about 8 of these goobers would head down to our river house for an entire weekend to drink “a few” natty’s, hack some golf balls around at the tides inn, cast some lines in the rivah & take their toys [boats] out for a while.. basically, do what boys do best.. be super weird together. ;) [just kidding]
last night i received a package from one of my dad’s best friends, mr. miller - or “Big E” - as my dad called him.. he sent me this polo that he ordered for all the guys for the weekend since they’ll all be heading down to the river & a note that read something like this- “paige, this weekend marks the 5th annual hack n cast. i ordered these shirts for all the guys and thought you might enjoy having one. your dad is always in my heart.” obviously this made me so happy..so happy that i cried [duh].. my dad was so lucky to have such wonderful friends. i love each of them dearly & LOVE seeing them because they remind me of my dad & all the wonderful memories they shared.. i am so blessed to have the biggest-hearted men in my life.. [dad as #1 heartman :)]
not really sure i buy in to astrology, psychics & all that business, but i was looking over the cancer profile [june baby] & was pretty surprised by some of the characteristics of cancers that kinda ring true for this nutjob too.. check it out..
cancer personality: deeply intuitive and sentimental. cancer can be one of the most challenging zodiac signs to get to know. emotion runs strong for this sign, and when it comes to family and home, nothing is more important. sympathetic and empathetic, cancerians are greatly attuned to those around them. devotion is the keyword for this sign, making them wonderfully sensitive people to be around.
strengths: compassion, emotional sensitivity, fierce protection of loved ones, tenacity.
weaknesses: manipulative, indirect conflict, clinging to the past, insecure, packrat. [haha, one of these is soo true.. dangit]
likes: relaxing near or in the water, art, home-based hobbies, a good meal with friends, helping loved ones.
dislikes: strangers, revealing of personal life, any criticism of mom.
best environment: cancer will always be most comfortable at home, close to family, familiar things and dear friends.
cancer in love: "i feel" is the key phrase for cancer, and this is all too evident when it comes to love. tender and gentle, cancerians will show sensitivity with their lovers without a second thought. they love readily and choose a mate who can understand them as much as possible. superficial and overly ambitious partners are not well-suited. the cancer lover will look for someone who is equally intuitive. they are devoted partners, love children and marry for life.
..if you know me, then you know which of these are pretty dang accurate.. but regardless of whether how true these things are, they’re fun to read anyway.. maybe there’s a reason my mom used to call me a crab. :)
“life is too damn short to not take a chance.”—..ta’ell with all those what-ifs, could-have-beens & maybes. take a chance on anything you might believe in & see what happens. you never know what tomorrow will bring.
chellybelly is coming up tonight & i’m so excited! can’t wait to get a little ca-razy with the div[a]! shopping beforehand & mk party tomorrow.. woo, can our lives get anymore exciting? ;) #whitegirlproblems
