why i had my engagement ring re-set

Happy Monday everyone - how was the weekend? Mine went too fast and I feel like I didn't even get anything done really. Isn't that how it always is?

Wednesday Whereabouts: Happy Anniversary!

This past Monday, the hubs and I celebrated our seventh anniversary! Man, I was young, blonde and sooo skinny! Seven years later, we have a cat, a dog and a sweet boy!

I can’t say that every day has been easy, but every day has been a blessing. It’s been a fabulous and fun seven years. I am so grateful for our marriage and our life together. I’m grateful that the hubs is a wonderful father to E and a fabulous husband to me....more

Where it Began.

Not to say it was nothing before, but this is when I truly started embracing my life for what it was. My senior year, I made so many decisions, decisions that really altered my life forever. Everything happens for a reason. While those decisions were hard, they were the best I ever made.   Why?I won a pageant, was on our Snow Dance court, I made new friends, I had the freedom to be me and do whatever I wanted, to explore....more

A Pennsylvania Wedding

We all attended Hun's brother's wedding a short time ago. Baby Boy wore his first suit and had his first haircut. Really, it was just a trim. Hun, nor I, could stand to part with much of Baby Boy's luscious curls. Now, they're not the same, but still quite luscious. Here are a few pictures from the wedding....more
