I wanted to introduce you to these lovely "new to blogging" ladies:

M, is a friend who I've known for several years now and I think we bonded over a candle at a friends house.  She was smelling it, I thought it was funny but made her feel weird about it and then our conversation went on from there.  We would see each other from time to time and now her and her husband live in our same town.  Over the last few months or year, our relationship has grown.  Our husbands love spending time together and it's even better for them when we're not around because they know that we like to talk.  They'd rather enjoy their beverage and chill. 

She started a blog not too long ago to document her wedding planning, woes and high points and now she's living the married life and transitioning into that new journey on her blog.

You can find M over at Salutations, please go and read and comment!  She is awesome and I'm sure that you all would love her, her style and her personality!


Amy, funny enough, I met through M at a holiday gathering several years ago.  We hit it off and had a great conversation but didn't really know each other.  Over the last few months and the events that lead up to M's wedding, we reconnected and now we're all enjoying learning and getting to know each other better through our blogs.

She's got quiet the knack for jewelry design and stationary, so if you ever think of something that you might need, you should get in contact with Amy for some new/beautiful ideas!

You can find Amy over at abk designs and I'm sure that you will enjoy her blog!  Go there too and read along and she continues to grow her blog and write!

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 …
