HEADING FOR THE HONEYMOON On A Sunday Drive Down Memory Lane

Good Sunday Morning, JaSammers!

Well, as promised, we are stretching out the JaSam Anniversary Celebrations as far as we can…and our last stop is Hawaii for their honeymoon!

Let’s try and relive the magic of those happy moments in Hawaii…and in our history as JaSam fans.

We came so close to having it all, but let’s not allow the fact that we lost them taint the fact that while we had them it was PHENOMENAL!

Let’s enjoy this Drive and HEADING FOR THE HONEYMOON!

A WEDDING NIGHT Sunday Drive Down Memory Lane

Good Sunday Morning, JaSammers!

As promised, this week, we’ll celebrate what came after the long-awaited “I Do’s” for our beloved couple!

I remember their wedding/wedding night week so vividly – the actual episodes, watching and crying together while on the phone with Ro, tweeting and texting all night with Becky  while waiting for the screencaps to be posted…it was as though someone in our family had just tied the knot! *sigh*

The Good Ol’ Days of GH…

It’s why posting these anniversary vids fills the void in my JaSam-loving heart – albeit temporarily – so sweetly.

At Karina’s insistence, I am dividing the Drives into two categories – The Wedding Night, and then, next week, the Happy Honeymoon scenes. Hey, I can never get too much of a celebration when it comes to our couple, so why not?

Let’s take a moment to appreciate The Magic Makers (vidders) who gave us the gift that keeps on giving with their incredibly done “scrapbooks” of our unforgettable JaSam Wedding Night. Where would we be without the memories?

I shudder to even imagine.

In all my years of soap watching, I have never cherished a wedding night more than Jason and Sam’s. They are truly incomparable! ❤

I hope you enjoyed this week’s Drive…Next week, we head to Hawaii!

😉

Much JaSam Love…

LOST On A Sunday Drive Down Memory Lane

Good Sunday Morning, JaSammers!

I have had a couple of entirely sleepless nights this week (stress never fails to render me sleepless), and I turned to my one comfort through insomnia…JaSamVids.

I will admit, I hadn’t done that in a while…I guess the loss of JaSam has taken more out of me than I realized, and I often found it painful to watch the beautiful and wonderful Love Story for too long before I felt a lump in my throat. However, this past week reminded me that Jason and Sam also bring a sense of euphoria that it totally worth the lump in my throat – and even the tears that often followed!

The vids for this week all have a common thread – they deal with LOSS, because every time I see these two onscreen, I am overwhelmed by the loss I feel watching my once favorite soap.

You’ll notice that some of the songs are repeated by different vidders – but they are so uniquely done, that I didn‘t think  you’d mind! 🙂

I hope you’ll enjoy being LOST On A Sunday Drive Down Memory Lane with me…and JaSam as much as I did!

I could spend every Sunday LOST with those two! 😥

A Sunday Drive Down Memory Lane…With An Expert Behind The Wheel

Good Sunday Morning, JaSammers!

I know it might have crossed a few minds that I had abandoned Bella Mafia, but that’s not the case at all.

Unfortunately, my mom had a major health crisis – one that began with a catheterization, and led to a triple bypass – and that has just taken up all of my free time over the past month, and then some. My sister and I are all my mom has, and my sister is not retired, as I am…so I have taken on caring for my mom on a daily basis. Thankfully, the doctors are all very impressed with her progress so far, and I have become a low sodium, low fat, smart sugar chef almost overnight, so she is getting healthy and it is our goal to keep her healthy with this new lease on life she ha been granted. I’d appreciate your prayers for her! 🙂

This weekend, my hubby and I are also celebrating an anniversary, so the 2 day “leave” my aunt has granted me while she cares for my mom has given me the time to get back to blogging for our Sunday Drive, though I’m not sure the hubster is thrilled with my devotion while away, no matter what he says. LOL

Anyway, leave it to our in-car expert, the uber-talented Heather, to give me exactly what I needed for this week’s Drive. It may seem at first sight that I am skimping on the Drive this week, but look carefully. Heather has put together a MASTERPIECE that will take quite some time to view (a little over 20 minutes), so I kept the selection of vids shorter this week, and only included two more in addition to said masterpiece, as I know we are all pressed for time for one reason or another.

I just know that these vids will make you laugh, cry, smile, frown, squeal, groan, sigh and want to stick fiery pins into little voodoo Frank and Ron dolls (JUST KIDDING!) In all seriousness, these vids will make your FEEL so much! And THAT is exactly why I’ve kept this Sunday Drive going almost a year after Steve’s departure! I never want us to forget the Love Story that brought us all together, and kept us all together!

Thanks, Heather, for the amazing vision you had for these vids and every other vid you craft for all of us to enjoy! What a GIFT you have! (What a GIFT you ARE!)

Enjoy, everyone!

Thanks for taking the Drive with me, friends!

You guys are the best!

A THOUGHTFUL Sunday Drive Down Memory Lane

Good Sunday Morning, JaSammers!

I was a little disheartened when I didn’t find any new JaSam vids this week, because it is just a stark reminder that our vidders are working without any new material, and have been for quite some time. I guess it was only a matter of time before even the most faithful ran out of inspiration. 😦

We can only hope that after a much-needed hiatus, inspiration will strike once more. Until then, we’ll have to depend on the classics to keep us going.

On this trip, we’ll focus on Jason and Sam’s thoughts towards or about one another…whether you can hear their thoughts, or see them (since Jason and Sam were never able to mask how they felt about each other-even when they tried), it all makes for a beautiful ride throughout their years together.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I did…

Off we go!

There just won’t ever be another Jason and Sam, will there? Thank goodness for these memories, or I might have started to think I imagined how amazing they were!

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday, my loves!

An INSPIRING Sunday Drive Down Memory Lane

Good Sunday Morning, GHers!

I hope this Sunday morning finds you all well…and comfortable. I know so much of the country is dealing with excessive heat as we are. We are entering Day 8 of a heatwave up here in Jersey…one we were supposed to get relief from yesterday in the form of a line of massive thunderstorms and plenty of moisture to wash away this oppressive heat.

What we ACTUALLY got was thunder and lightning for the past couple of nights, and a 5 minute shower yesterday afternoon, but it wasn’t enough to even wash away the poor, sad drooping blooms on our flowers! I’m hoping with my fingers crossed that overnight we will get something a little more substantial! I think many of us could use a reprieve  from all of this sticky heat!

As for our Drive today, don’t worry – the AC is pumping! However, I think you’ll be happiest to know, as I was, that I was pleasantly surprised over how many of our JaSam vidders seemed to have been INSPIRED again over the past couple of weeks. I know it had to be INSPIRATION from within their JaSam-loving hearts, as we don’t have any coming from our former favorite soap…so it means all the more that our vidders did such beautiful work for all of us to enjoy! The fact that they are INSPIRED to not let go just yet INSPIRES me to do the very same!

Thank you so much to each of you talented, wonderful, generous vidders for sharing this lovely gift with all of us when we need it most! You guys keep the JaSam Love alive, and for that, so many of us are eternally grateful!

Much love to each of you…and to all those willing to take this Drive with me this week!

Let’s go…

A Sunday Drive Down Memory Lane…To Heat Things Up

Good morning, JaSammers! (I’m not sure there are many GHers left)

So my kids have been on summer vacation for a couple of weeks now, and the other day, my Vanessa says to me, “Wow, Mom. Summers just aren’t the same without Jason and Sam!” 

This is coming from an 11-year-old. 

Boy, is she right! NOTHING is the same without Jason and Sam!

The kind of romance they created really left a void now that we no longer have it…and I just know that Vanessa and I aren’t the only ones who feel that way.

So, here is A Sunday Drive to Heat Things Up for ya! No one can do it like JaSam!
