Do you ever wonder how we became so cookie cutter? Lately in my struggle to fight for Rory, I have found myself desperately wanting to put her in a box of “this is how it is going to go”. Me, the person who prays so hard to never have her put into a box…. I’m… Read More the fight just isn’t cookie cutter
One of the best parts of our move here is that I already have a few friends in the area, Andy’s brother lives 20 minutes away, and also an aunt and a cousin live in the area! We have rarely lived anywhere with established friends and family so I just feel so thankful I already… Read More Lake Winnipesaukee
*I apologize for this post in some areas- most of this comes from my journal that I keep and I wrote it over the course of about a week or so and I just kind of copied that and added some in between. On June 18th, Andy came home and said, “Well. I got a call… Read More our new adventure.
About a week or so ago, I heard a remark somewhere (honestly cannot remember where I heard it) and it went something like this: Are you actually living your life or are you living it through your phone? Besides Instagram, despite what it might seem, I really don’t log onto social media much. I post everything through… Read More actually living.
Yesterday was Andy and I’s 9 year anniversary. I know what you are thinking- how could SHE be married for nine years? She’s much too young! Ha. Well, at just 18 years old I married a guy I was crazy about. He was 19 and handsome as could be (some things will never change). We… Read More what they don’t tell you about marriage
Around 1:30 in the morning last night, I woke up with a child staring at me in that creepy way children insist on waking you up in the middle of the night. I jumped and sucked in my breath (because even in my subconscious fright I’d never let out a yell that would wake the… Read More life has changed so much
For Mother’s Day we headed to Jackson to spend some time with my mom and dad. My sister and her family came over too and we just had a great time. It was a totally stress free time for me because Rory is at an age where I don’t have to worry about every move… Read More I am my mother.
I don’t know if I ever told y’all this, but yours truly has recently had a run in with the law. You see, several months ago, I was on my way home from my parents’ house and entered a tiny town here in West TN and was trucking along nicely when all of a sudden… Read More the felon.
Well, as some of you may have noticed, I’ve been a bit MIA. It is really hard to a) find the time and b) find a place to get on here right now. Things have been hectic but are going well. I’m so thankful for my parents letting us stay at their house. Rory and… Read More MIA and a photo dump.
Once we told everyone we were moving, it seemed like every day I was wondering if I’d ever see that person again. Or if that’d be the last time we did that particular thing. After a month of doing that, it seemed like we were saying goodbye for ages already and I was so emotionally… Read More the long goodbye.
