fall, fall, and more fall....

My mantel. It's go a lot going on this year. Some new additions that I need to still work on. The above seen "haunted house" picture on the right, is a picture that I made in elementary school that I need to get a shadow box frame for and hopefully that will help with the presentation of it. All in all, I'm happy with the way it turned out this year.

A closer view of my mantel. I love the little details and the way the light was hitting it this morning when I snapped these pictures!

My favorite new buy of the season, a $2.00 wreath with little candy corn looking pieces and corn stalk like filler. Very cute and it's placed around a Yankee Candle a citrus scent that I'm totally blanking on. I will soon be replacing it for one of White Barn Candles Sweet Pumpkin candles. Love that scent!!

One of two glass (candy jar) pumpkins that I refuse to fill with candy this year, so I decorated it with a wreath! Do you like it?

My 1/2 bath in with all of it's fall decor. I always decorate it since it's right off of the living room and it's a pretty neutral wall color so it blends well with all holiday decor!!!

And like any true Buckeye fan, here's our pumpkin wearing an OSU helmet... I blame this one on my dh.

Anyway, I hope you are enjoying the weather, wherever you might be. Yesterday morning it was 34 degrees outside and it was frigid. Two weeks ago it was 80 degrees... that's Ohio weather for ya!

Happy Fall!!!!

i love everything!! fall is my most favorite time of year and everything you have looks so festive and warm.

one of my favorite things that my sister does (and gets a ton of compliments on) is to put candy corn in a glass jar or bowl and then she sticks a candle in there...absolutely adorable. kind of like potpourri. she does it with peppermint patties at christmas and it's cute too.

anyway, well done! i feel you with the ohio/indiana weather...i'm just wanting the chilly sweater weather to stay!!

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

Starting here..

I know that I haven't really updated this in a long while. I apologize. In the moments it was hard enough to survive, let alone write about it or find time to write about it.

With that said, I've told people over and over again that I'm going to write again, just not sure where to start.
So, today, I'm starting here.
My mom is terminal.  
Words that I cannot believe have to leave my mouth or my fingers.
She's been battling Ovarian Cancer for well over 10 years and this last year or 8 months+ have been just the worst.  Her body is being consumed by cancer and with every day that passes we are just another closer to losing her.
She's fought this whole time and continues to beat the odds that the doctors have placed before her. She's set goals and surpassed them and when the doctors say something, it's like she mentally tells herself that it's just NOT going to happen and she flies by those measurable items.
She's been a rock star and I have known …
