upon us

Where I live, we get all four seasons and we rarely miss a season.  Believe me there are still winters that will give me nightmares because of how bad the roads were.... And as of right now, fall is really upon us and that makes me so happy. 

Don't get me wrong, I love the summers but when fall arrives, it just makes all those miserable rides home in my 1991 Honda go away.  Being able to drive home without sweating through my clothes really is a dream and being able to have the windows open for weeks at a time with only closing them for a rain shower or two.  Who wouldn't love that?

Not only that, but it's football season and in central Ohio, it's kind of a big deal.  I look forward to the days of jeans and hooded sweat shirts, cookouts, beers in cozies, hanging out with friends and enjoying the cool breeze.

I think that every time this season comes around, I mention how much I love it because it really is just my most favorite time of the year.

I'm hoping that this year, once I'm really in the spirit and ready to decorate for fall, that I'll actually get come pictures up of my decorations.  I have 2 boxes of fall/halloween/thanksgiving decorations and I'm hoping that I don't get much more than that.  If I do, I'll have to move.  Maybe I'll start getting things out tonight to help me really enjoy how warm and cozy this weather makes you feel...

I know that I'm not like many other people, in terms of decorating, but what do you do to spruce up your house for this awesome time of the year?

Oh and I forgot!  I'm going to have my first display of a craft project!  A flea market find to fabulous!

Updated to say...

Although it is clearly fall, I think as of today actually, it's been over 90 degrees the last few days and still feels like July.  Maybe that's why I haven't got the decorations out yet.  I'm still in summer mode.

I heart fall!!! I love to have my house windows open and smell the clean air. Actually I have a spiced apple candle that I love too! ;) I just planted my front porch pots with kale and mums- cut down my 6 corn stalks and put them in a jar by my fireplace. I think this weekend I will get my boxes out and finish what I started. Partly what I love about Fall is I can keep my decorations up for at least 2 months before having to take them down for the next holiday.

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 …
