{5 years ago today...} Part 1

Five years ago this week, I was praying for the winter to go away and stay away! With 2 weeks before our wedding, winter decided to show it's face, just one more time {I think} just to freak me out. We weren't planning a winter wedding, we were planning on a pretty, bulbs blooming, sun shining, 60+ degree day with no snow! If we wanted that we would've done a December/January wedding. Duh!?! I guess that's Ohio weather for you though. You just never know what you are going to get or what to expect!

Sitting here {sort-of scratching my head} thinking about what we were doing on these exact weeks/days 5 years ago is a little more difficult than I thought it would be. It's only been 5 years not 50! Can you imagine what my memory will be like then? Yikes! It's a good thing I'm blogging now, otherwise this information might be lost, right. Though it all and very surprisingly, almost every detail of THE DAY, seems to be as clear as if it happened last weekend. I'm not kidding. More on that to come later...

So this time, 5 years ago, what was I doing? Well, knowing me {and how organized I like to be,} I was probably confirming everything!!!!! Calling the reception hall, our church, the florist, the cake lady, my hair stylist, our pastor as well as calling all of our attendants to confirm their arrival times and hair appointments {girls only of course}. The weeks leading up to my wedding went pretty smoothly, which I'm very grateful for!

Stay tuned {as usual} for the other events that would've taken place 5 years ago today...

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 …
