I can only imagine that it is due to the time of the year but lately I have found myself reflecting on all the things that I have been blessed with. This year I have been extremely lucky for most of my blessings have come in the form of people; people that have touched my life and have made it so much better.

I am most grateful and most lucky to be blessed with two wonderful, amazing and supportive parents. If it was not for them believing in me and standing by my side I would not be where I am today.

My mother is an amazing woman. She not only supports my father, my sister and me, but she is always there to lend a hand to her mother or a dear friend. If someday I can be half the mother she is, I will have achieved more than I can ever imagine. On top of all that she has now proven that she can be a wonderful and loving grandmother. (That includes a grandmother to Simon and Milo)

My father....what can I say about my father. To me he is one of the most amazing human beings I have ever had the honor of knowing. He has achieved so much; a doctor, kayaker, writer, photographer, black belt in judo, sailor...... I could keep going on. However, his most impressive achievement is having been and continuing to be an incredible father.

On top of those two unbelievable family members I was also blessed with being the little sister of Carri, a.k.a Kiki.

There have been times where I could have killed her. There have been times in which I thought I would never speak to her again, but she is my life. I would do anything for my sister and I would like to believe the same hold trues for her. I look up to her and look towards her for support. It brings me great joy when she tells me that she loves me and even bigger joy when i get to see her. She also blessed me this year with making me an aunt.

I think the picture says it all.

Lastly, my most important, amazing, wonderful, memorable, blessing came on October 21st. I got to marry Ben,

He is the most outstanding man. I don't look up to him; I look towards him. I look towards him for support and advice. He is truly my equal. I am thankful everyday that he married me and that I get to spend the rest of my life with him. I hope someday he can realize what he means to me and how much having him in my life is a blessing. More over, I hope he knows he is my life.

Just So Unsure

This blog is just a way for me to vent. It does not matter if my readers know what I am talking about nor if they give me advice, what matters is if they just listen and nod their heads.
How do you know what to do when you come to a crossroad in life? What do you do when your heart and gut tells you to go left and everyone else is telling you to go right?
I believe in life you can be on more then one path at a time. I have been on many and a lot of them I do not want to be on anymore. I am done with the drama, I am done with being an adolescent. I want to be married, I want to be with my husband, I want Ben and I to be like a family, I want to find my niche.
Well, I have a lot on my mind that I need to figure out and it sucks that I need to do it alone. However, thanks for listening and most of all thanks for nodding your heading and saying it's okay.

Old Married Lady

If you have read my other blogs and if you can figure out how a calendar works, then you are probably well aware that I am no longer Ms. Silberman, but I have now taken on the new role of Mrs. Weiss. I am loving and enjoying every moment of it, but most of all I feel like everything is just right. Not only am I happy, comfortable, and content, I also can't wait to see what our new life together brings us. Thanks to everyone that has supported us and will continue.

Lots of Love
Tammy Weiss

Was It Really A Tale Of Two Cities?

"It was the best of times and it was the worse of times" is the opening line to a very famous Dickens novel, but if I didn't know any better I would think he was writing about a wedding. This endeavor of planning a wedding that Ben, a brave man mentioned in Silbs blog, and I started less then a year ago has been one of many ups and even some downs. We have been lucky enough to have the wonderful support of our family and many of our friends. However, even with all their support and their attempt to make it a perfect day, there are some that have forgotten that on October 21st for 24 hours, technically even less, it is not about them.
At the start of the planning I was very aware that not everyone on our thirteen plus page guest list would be able to attend and we are very thankful for that. However, there is a list within that list and those on that hidden list are the ones whose presence at the big day is oh so important to Ben and I. As we have been getting closer and closer to the big day, did I mention it is October 21st, we have been informed that there are some on this hidden list that will not be attending. I am very aware that there are reasons beyond one's control that may not allow them to attend the event of the century, my wedding which is on October 21st, but some of our dear ones have no excuse except they do not feel like either making the effort, the sacrifice or are little to self absorbed. They have seemed to have forgotten that on October 21st it is about the bride and groom, it is about Ben and I, that it is not about them.

P.S. I mentioned the date of the wedding numerous of times in the hope that it would help my father, silbs blog, remember when the big day is.

Breeding Breeding Breed All About IT

So I guess everyone and everything everywhere is reproducing. In some cases this is a good thing. For example, my sister and her husband have made me an aunt. As of May 30 I have become the proud aunt to my nephew Joesph Aaron Wasserberg and I couldn't be happier.

When I look at him I see nothing but pure joy and a wonderful future for him. These people, my sister Kiki and Scott, are the ones we need to reproduce and breed.

However, it seems that those that are doing more of this breeding then anyone else are people who cannot even provide a wonderful future for themselves. They are either struggling in one area or the other and cannot understand the responsibility that a comes along with a child. To them having a child is usually away to force marriage upon someone, keep the relationship alive or the child may even be a fun "toy" to play with.

There is nothing more wonderful then a child and having a child when it is done in the right situation and I am glad that my nephew has been born into the perfect situation. He has a roof over his head, wonderful and educated parents, and even more importantly family that will love him no matter what.

My finally thought is: you need a license to drive, fish or hunt but anyone can have a child.

With Love
Aunt Tammy
