a game of speed, strategy and fear.

A few years ago I received a paintball gun for Valentine's Day.  It may seem like a weird gift to some, but I was absolutely ecstatic!  One of the best/unique gifts I have ever received.

There's just something so exhilarating about hiding in the woods, running through creeks, sneaking up on your friends opponents, and blasting them with paint.  Ooooh, and bringing in the flag doesn't suck either!
A group of us battled on the paintball this past Saturday.  We enjoyed great weather and walking off the field undefeated.

{Finally got hit! At least it was pink paint.}

love arrows.

Love is not always fireworks, pancakes, and shooting stars.  It’s an adventure!  It’s overcoming obstacles, facing challenges, fighting to be together, holding on, and never letting go.  It requires energy, patience, perspective and determination. 
Love is hard work, but worth every moment of it.
 I was struck by cupid’s arrows 6 years ago and I am happy to be in love. 
From the hugs and kisses to the bickering, from the smiles to the tears of laughter.  I am grateful everyday to share this crazy life with the one I love.
I made these arrows with little love notes for my babe.  We don't go all out for valentine's day, we tell and do things everyday to show and celebrate our love, but I couldn't resist making these cute DIY arrows.

We'll celebrate love, friendship and good food tonight with some dear friends.
Dinner at Moxie and Champagne & Dessert at our place.
