Happy Thanksgiving (Late)

Hi friends! Nothing beats a post Thanksgiving post to remind you all that I am alive and well. I hate that I don’t find the time to blog more. I’m always wondering… What can I do to make me happy??? And here we are… Back to where my happiness started… Keeping a journal.

How’s Life?

Life is going. Times are tough, but we are making it. My main focus right now is making sure the kids have a good Christmas. This year is the perfect year to teach them that Christmas is more than just material things. Work is going well. I had a great six month evaluation. Kids are doing great. Growing up fast. The marriage is… A marriage. Ups… Downs… Blah Blah Blah, yeah!

How Was My Thanksgiving?

Pretty freakin’ awesome! I ended up doing two impromptu photo shoots with my new 24mm lens. Here are a few faves from the day:
We had a great day for the most part. It started with the 2 hour road trip to my parents and ended with a dinner with friends. I got to meet my grandnephew (the lovely baby in the photos above) for the first time. It was also the first time that we’ve seen our friends since we moved to the city.

Before I Go…

I want to thank the faithful few that check on me every now and then. I miss our blogging community. I’m slowly finding my way back. I have so many thoughts and wants. I need to get back to what makes me happy… Because I realize that I’m starting to lose myself. So, until next time…


5:40pm. It’s cold and raining. I’m sprawled out on a sofa bed in my parents’ living room. Sounds of Ivy and Rescue Pup fill the background. I miss my husband.1

This weekend, we moved into our new apartment in the city.2 He starts work at his new job tomorrow. The kids and I are back down south until next weekend. My job couldn’t transfer me as fast, so the kids and I have to spend a week at my parents’.

I’m truly hoping that this week will fly by. There’s still lots of unpacking to do. I still have to put up the tree and take JJ to see Santa. Most of all, I’m ready to start a new chapter of my life.

So much has happened in so little time.

It has been almost an entire week since Thanksgiving! The holiday was fun. It was great seeing my family. We got the chance to take another family portrait.

It was also the day that baby girl turned 10 months old! She’s getting so big. Four teeth… Crawling and standing… Full of attitude…

I have so many more things to update you on. Soon…very soon.



4.21.13 We spent Sunday at my parents’ after church. My brother, Ray, came down from New Jersey. I got to meet his girlfriend, Dani, for the first time. I missed my older brother, Corey. I really wish that he could have made it. It definitely would have made the family photo complete. Maybe next time, though.
