A savvy 30-something who goes from SASSY and SINGLE in the city to Instant Mom and married (in the burbs!).

The other day I was driving down the highway and noticed a Coca-Cola sign that read "Enjoy a Mini Moment" - it was an ad for their 7.5 ounce mini cans. The campaign is trying to reach the "health conscious" by giving consumers a better way to manage their calories. The ad itself made me think of the concept of enjoying "mini moments" - below are a few of my mini-moments:
Dunkin Donuts (Coconut flavored with skim milk and 1 splenda), however, now I opt for the decaf sans the splenda (due to little Baby Carr).
A one on one breakfast or lunch with a friend.
Listening to a VM message from a friend that I have not heard from in awhile.
Sitting down with Peter for dinner after a long day.
Potbelly sandwich (turkey) - YUM! Something about it makes me smile (maybe because I don't live down the street from one anymore and when I have a chance to eat one I get super excited).
Listening to the girls chat in the backseat of the car (never fails to make me laugh - as their conversations can be so hilarious).
Writing a note to someone on my new stationery. Side note, and I always jumble the two words stationary and stationery and this seemed to help me- "A common school house trick for remembering the proper spelling is to remember station-ery means pap-er."
This leads me to the MANY MINI MOMENTS from our wedding. Pen Carlson recently posted our wedding on their blog (and oh my gosh, btw, I love their new intro on their site - totally rocks). The mini moments they captured during our wedding weekend make me smile. Side note, I love the last line of our photographer's intro/hello= Have a riot. Be you. We'll be us.
I'm a 30-something gal who went from Sassy and Single in the city (Chicago) to an instant mom living in the burbs w/my husband's 2 adorable little girls (ages 9 and 11). My husband's late wife's sister's husband (who I used to work w/) introduced us and the rest is history. I've never been happier. And summer 2010 we added a little boy to the mix. We love our little Prince Georgie!
