One Lovely Blog

My friend, Steffany over at Sassy Times, awarded me this "One Lovely Blog Award" and I couldn't be more happy to be receiving it today.  Thank you Steff.

Steff is a great blog friend that I met through a string of other bloggers.  She has also jumped on the band wagon of  Grace in Small Things and she's loyal to posting her graces daily.  I haven't posted them in weeks and I need to be better about it.  She also has a super cute daughter that she's lucky enough to spend her days with and all of her adventures.  She has such a warm and welcoming way of blogging and she makes you feel like she's been your friend for years without evening meeting her.

So, on with the award...

The rules, simply they are, if your nominated, you have to post on your blog and nominate 5 others.

And, now for the nominees:

All of these woman amaze me.  In one form or another have been battling with infertility and some have been able to overcome it with the help of reproductive medicine.  They are strong and unbeatable.  They have offered me support without even knowing sometimes.  Just being there and experiencing some of the steps that it takes to get pregnant.  We're all traveling through a journey that we never knew that we were going to have to face but thanks to blogs and the network, we have connected to share our story and support throughout this time.  Go and show your support or just read about their story.  Beautiful, wonderful and well-written women.  Congrats ladies!  Now go post your award!

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 …
