Good Morning NaBloPoMo!


I'm Mrs. Hope and I've been married to Mr. Hope for 6 years + and this blog is about our journey to creating a family.  We're had a lot of hiccups along the way and we even had success just a few months ago now.  Unfortunately, with out luck, we lost that pregnancy and now we're striving to recreate our success in another one very soon.

We have a dog (a Brittany) and a cat (a tuxedo cat) who actually get along great, however, we've had some issues lately with our cat using the litter box.  As you can imagine, this isn't a happy place for us to be, but we're dealing with it the best way that we can.  It's working for now and I hope in the future that he will eventually have full reign of the house again.  All with time... all with time...

In addition to those things, I'm a product of 3 and my immediate family lives close by that I see them quite frequently. I'm the oldest and have a younger brother and sister who I get along with now better than ever.  My husband's parents live in our town and his older brother/family live about 8 hours away.  We see them as much as we can, which usually is about 2 time a year.

Other than that, I'm allergic to dust and had a major reaction this weekend after I cleaned the vacuum and I'm still recovering from it.  I love wheat beer, I miss the ocean, I love the color red, I enjoy all music styles, I love Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice and my favorite food is Italian (specifically fettuccine alfredo).

Stay tuned through the month of November for more posts... I had taken a few days off because I was getting a sour taste in my mouth from some of the blog that I follow and some of the boards that I'm on.  I'm not back 100%, but I will be writing to keep my blog alive this month!  Especially for NaBloPoMo!!!

Happy Monday and thanks for stopping by!!

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 …
