Sprout | Royal Wedding...

Now that the Royal wedding has already taken place and Prince William and Cate are now the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, I wanted to share two little tidbits.

First being, Prince William and I have a birthday just 3 days a part from one another.  I had always thought it was the same day until I just looked it up, to confirm.  But either way, 3 days from one another... That's really close!

Another tidbit, is a local ice cream shop, Jeni's, has put together some of the most dreamy flavors for these Royal Wedding festivities and I'm DROOLING just thinking about them.  I saw this post yesterday and all it made me want to do is take off work on Friday morning and STUFF my face with these LUSCIOUS ice cream options!  Could you just die?

For the record, I did NOT take off work for the Royal Wedding, but I have recorded the coverage starting at 4am and going until 2pm (which my DVR hates) but I cannot wait (Last night we adjusted the DVR settings and now we're only recording portions, but either way it was beautiful and I cannot wait to watch it again).  I'm actually half tempted to have the Royal Wedding coverage play during my baby shower on Saturday, just in case someone missed it.  But I won't.

My office, however, hosted a casual "tea party" this morning while broadcasting the wedding coverage to just start the day off with a bang...

Did you plan or do anything special for the Royal Wedding this morning?  Did you get up at 4am to start watching the coverage?  What's been your favorite part so far?

I've recorded it to watch it tonight. I did sneak a peak and watch the ceremony this morning while I was getting ready for work. :-)

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 …
