the long of the short...

How did you and DH meet..whats your love story?

We met when I was in college and during his first year of teaching. He was friends with my bar/college friends older brother. We went out on a few group dates and then branched out on our own from there. One of our first dates was actually to Scramblers. We dated for 1 1/2 years, we were engaged for 1 1/2 years and now we've been married for just over 5 years. We got engaged at Kuri Beach, North Carolina. It was very romantic and so memorable. Luckily, S's uncle has a condo there so we can visit and rim-anise from time to time. We were actually on vacation with his parents, brother, sister in law and nephew at the time. Of course they all knew what was going to go down... so they were all excited for us to come back from our walk to congratulate us! Unfortunately for us, we were stuck in the room with two twin beds. I think that was planned on purpose. Jerks.

The rest of our story, the short version. We were married March 20, 2004, we bought our house in May of 2004, we adopted our dog in July of 2007, we adopted our 1st kitty in Sept of 2004 and our current kitty in October of 2008. We love each other and our love for one another continues to grow daily. Although trying to conceive hasn't been easy. In fact, it has really sucked. For some reason, this whole process has just made us both stronger, together.

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 …
