A good view of the boats 

The condo we leased over the water!
Other huts over water, very nice 
Steve on our way to our island in Bora Bora
I though this little island was the cutest

Our Tahiti trip was booked over a year ago and the Steve had his stoke and we had to cancel it. So we had to go and use the rentals because they had been paid for. 
It takes forever to get there, about 20 hours of travel time. After 4 airports and layovers, but it is worth the trip.

Fat Tuesday!

Well we had to do the Mardi Gras thing. We all went to Pearls and had some cajun fixins and watched as everyone celebrated. We got there early and there was already a line at the door.
We ran into several friends and got caught up in all the fun.

All the people were all decked out!

My sweetie having a blast.

Bethany and Fred, my sister in law and brother in law.

These girls made the night fun. We sang with the band
and took crazy pics. Lacy and Emily are the girls
on each end and are pretty much  family.

Feb. 10th 
It was one year ago yesterday that my husband Steve had a major stroke. One year ago today that they told us that he had a 3% chance to live. I just have to say that Steve is a miracle. I have never seen so many pray and come to our side. It was in a meeting with the Neurosurgeon, after the priest and preacher came to pray for Steve, that we had results of an MRI that gave us new hope. The doctors realized that Steve had less brain damage than they thought. The meeting we were having was to decide how to let him pass, but then here came news of an MRI (that the doctor had already said we didn't need because it was too late, some how it got ordered, thank God) and our prayers were answered. Thank you to all our family and friends for all your help and prayers because Steve is doing so well. Steve has excelled so quickly for the severity of the stroke he endured. He is a fighter and won't give up! After going to Canada for 6 weeks for a speech program and seeing others far worse than Steve, I feel blessed to have a miracle of a husband, my true love.
