Change is coming.  I'm in the process of just growing and learning, and so is my blog.
Stay with me.
I'll be in touch soon.

All You Need is Love

Marriage is the best, hardest, most wonderful thing I have ever done.  
I wouldn't change this last year for the world.  Even though I've been stretched, changed, and grown more than I would have thought imaginable, I love it.

So far, the ten best things about being married:

1.   Someone is always there to hug me when I cry for no reason.
2.   I have learned how to pray for someone else more than I pray for myself.
3.   I live with Prince Charming, and he loves romance.
4.   He thinks I'm awesome even when I burn cookies (which I have definitely done).
5.   I am protected in all arenas.
6.   He pretends to be awake and talk to me when I need it (he does try really hard!).
7.   I get to watch him fast and pray for our family and future.
8.   He unplugs drains I consistently stop up (I lose a ton of hair.  And, one time, I put rose-stems down the drain in the kitchen... Oops.)
9.   I don't have to kill any bugs, ever.
10. I get to be around my best friend all of the time.  It's like a constant sleepover.

Don't get me wrong, there are really hard days.  The best thing about it all, though, is that it is forever.

Weekend Getaway in Photos

This weekend, we went to Virginia with some of our very best friends and had such a blast.  Sunday was our anniversary, and we loved sharing it with them!  We got to go to a VT game, and we hiked in the mountains.

Anniversary post coming tomorrow!

Dear Anonymous...

Do you see this face?  Do you see the pain in her eyes?

You must have heard their story... our story.  You must have heard our pain for them.
About a month ago, on our block, a young man took his own life.  It was a wake-up call for us.  What were we doing?  Why weren't we reaching out to these people more?
Anonymous, you have joined with us.  You are one of our cause, and we thank you.
God bless you, Anonymous.
With your gift, you have touched our hearts, and we know that you will touch theirs.

Yesterday, I finished writing my first whole story for creative writing class.  I took this class because I wanted to finish something I write (I'm a great starter, not so great at endings).  You can read it here if you want... If you want to be my best friend and make my day and let me know what you think in your free time, you can read it.  No pressure.
Story 1                                                                                                                            

I'm wearing my first leggings today in years.  I'm a bit insecure about it, but I'm also really excited.  I feel like the whole world should notice because it is so out of the ordinary for me.  I was in the mood to buy them yesterday and figured that I should do it now, because I am not usually very risky.  They're black, so I hope I look thinner today.

I'm going to throw my first baby shower for one of my best friends who is due in March.  I'm thinking of a "You Are My Sunshine" theme... What do you think?
