I have wanted to post about this many times and haven't. If you are around me for about 5 minutes. You will hear me say....Lovebug. the thing is I love lady bugs, always have.
I did not realize til a few years ago, how often I say it. All the closest people in my life, have caught on and many letters cards and gifts have something to do with a lady bug. Well today Dave and I were given these lovebug, ladybug cupcakes with the cutest little poem and letter attached so I knew I had to share.
For your FYI, my NANA always called me Lovebug. She was my favorite person in the whole wide world. Lovebugs are a bug in Florida( where they Lived), that are the male and female attached. They are born that way. Funny I know, but these bugs are horrible. They splat on all cars that drive in Florida, all over the hoods and are a pain to clean off, so thus came the nickname, maybe I was a pain too, but the nickname stuck. So Ladybugs aka lovebugs in our house a big part of me!

We have been so busy and it sounds cliche because I am always busy but this week we really were crazy busy. We were lucky enough to watch our good friends kids and we got to stay at their home and play with the kids all week and swim. It was a fun week, needless to say! we swam and swam and swam.
