27, just 3 years until 30.

Today, the day that I entered the world.
Graced my parents with happiness beyond their wildest dreams.
The first born and yet the runt of the family.

How do I feel about turning 27?
Well, in a nut shell, it just means I'm one more year closer to 30.
That my friends, seems more and more frightening as it becomes closer and closer.

What are the big plans for the day?
Well, lunch at the office with some friends.
Then we have a scheduled boot camp with a trainer that comes to our office.
Great birthday present, right?
I'm just hoping that he either doesn't find out my birthday or does and then treats me for it. And not in a bad way.
After work, my mom is cooking dinner for the family.
One of my favorite dishes, creamy basil chicken over pasta. Yum.

Have you opened any gifts yet today?
Yesterday my boss greciously gave me a gift card to my favorite store!
I'm looking forward to going there and buying a few new things for my Put-In-Bay trip.
Aside from that, my husband gave me my present this morning.
First, he bought an planted an upright boxwood that I had requested.
Second, I received my ALL TIME favorite perfume.
In other words, I smell GREAT today, thanks to my husband!
How often do you get to say something like that?

How long do you celebrate?
However long I can.
At least for the next two weeks.

So, without further ado...

Happy 27th Birthday to Me!

30 seemed like a big deal to me, too, but I had a GREAT thirtieth birthday and a wonderful 30th (well, I guess the year you turn thirty becomes your 31st) year. :)

30 is the new 20, right? Isn't that what 'they' say? ;)
Happy Birthday! I make it a point to celebrate for as long as I can get away with...usually a week or two at least!!

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 …
