And here we are...

So it's Novemeber. It's been November for 17 days now. From here on out the year will fly by. So much is happening and it has been overwhelming. Maybe one day I will share what's been going on these past few months. No, in fact, one day I will share with you, my friends and family, and readers, what has been going on. But for now, I will just share the everyday.

It's November. I picked up a holiday postion that I cannot stand. So that doesn't help. I thought I would enjoy it, but nope. I don't. In fact, I've always hated retail. But I just need to last about 12 weeks. My photography has picked up a bit, but unfortunetly my flash broke. ::insert sad face here:: I don't know what happened, but I took a picture and it sounded as if the blub exploded. I don't think it did, and it won't turn on at all... Who knows...

The Hoilday season is here, and I'm so excited! I really hope this job doesn't make the Hoildays stressful! I love the Hoildays, I love seeing my family, I love being around them. It's always fun. Thanksgiving in a week away! And although our time with our family will be cut short, I really hope to savor every moment we get to spend with them!

I hope you all are well! And Happy Thanksgiving! Who knows if I'll be back before it comes! :)

So yes, I know, I've been slacking.

Well I know it's been forever and I've been slacking with blogging and getting my photo of the day up on here. I apologize. I've never really been great at blogging. Well, here is my latest photo of the day. Taken yesterday 10.24.2010 while Tim and I where hiking.

Days 15 and 16

I know I didn't post a few days in here and I missed them, but I have been doing them! I've gotten them up on face book, but it will just take a while to get them up here, so I'll just start back up with day's 15 and 16, which are a theme!

Things are getting a bit more...

Different. I'm not really sure if that is the word I'm looking for, but it's the only one I could think of. As I sit here, on a Sunday afternoon, in my living room, with my husband, watching football all I can do is get excited for the Fall. See I love fall, and I love all the changes it brings.

It's the beginning of an end. An end of the season, an end to life, and end to summer. But yet, It can also signify the beginning. The beginning of a season, the beginning of life, the beginning of Autumn. I love the cool weather and the colors, the smells and the fact it seems to always bring families together. I love the comfort it brings as well. Sitting by the fire, sweatshirts, big comfy blankets and cozy warm foods.

I hope, with this end and beginning, I can become more faithful. To God, to myself, to blogging and writing. I'm excited to see what comes with this fall, looking forward to all things new and all things old. Looking forward to spending time with family and loving my family.

For some reason, today, I feel content and excited for all changes and all things that remain the same.

Much love.

Just Beautiful.

It has been such a beautiful morning. The weather is cool, and the breeze is so nice. Fall is right around the corner and I love it! There isn't much new that's been going on. I've had a few friends on my mind lately. J and S, as they are waiting on the arrival of the precious little on any day now! I'm so excited for them! Lizzy, one of my best friends from college. And lots of my fellow Clemens Girls! And a few of my Group Experience girls. :) I hope they are all doing well.

Things here on the home front have been going well, I'm so excited to order our new dinning room set. Hopefully we can do that next week! I can't wait to decorate it. Also, our House has slowly been becoming more of a home with being able to do some more decorating. Hopefully tomorrow or Saturday I'll be able to get my picture I ordered and hang it on our family room wall. Hopefully, it came out ok!

Last night, my poor pup got stung by a bee. It scared me half to death! He was freaking out running all around crying. and then I found the bee. Thankfully, he's doing much better today!

Other than that. Tim has been traveling a lot again. I'm hoping that calms down soon. I really miss him when he is gone. Things with him and work have been going so well though. I'm so thankful for his job, especially during these times.

Well, other than that. Our life has been pretty much the same. And you know what. Sometimes, that's ok. :)

Have a great day everyone!

Wordless Wednesday on a Thankful Thursday!

Here's my wordless Wednesday:

And now for my thankful Thursday:

I'm really thankful for a new friendship that has really taken off. I'm so happy that God has put this wonderful woman in my life. She's been such an inspiration, such an encourager, and such a great listener. I'm so glad that our friendship continues to grow. I'm so thankful that I've learned so much so far, and I know I'll only continue to learn from her. She an amazing photographer, mother, and woman of God. She shows so much strength and empowerment; Love and Joy. And yet she is so real and is not afraid to hid. I am thankful to know her and to have her in my life. God is amazing and He always knows who to put in your life when you need them.

Nicole, thank you, for all you have done and will continue to do.

So, Yes, I've been slacking.

So, dear readers, I apologize. I knew going into this I wouldn't have much to blog about. It doesn't help that I don;t have a life though. Anyway....So in the last few weeks not much in our life has changed. We went out to California for Tim's cousin's wedding and it was wonderful! Here is a picture of their first kiss.

It really was a lovely wedding.

So, what else has been going on. Well, I'm still trying to figure out if I really want to go back to school. It would be a 2 hour drive every Saturday, and the class would be all day. so I would give up my Saturdays from 7am-6:30pm. And all the reading and papers, it just doesn't seem too motivating. I just don't know. But I'm not really worried about it.

I've also started counseling again. I'm not afraid to say it, and I don't care who knows. There isn't any bad going on, so don't worry. It's just for me, for my metal health, and just a few things I would like to work on. I'm actually glad to be going. I think it's good for people to check in every now and then to get a clear new perspective.

Other than that, not much else has been going on. We've rearranged our family room, and I don;t think I like it very much. We've finally gotten that TV for the family room too. I;m looking forward to painting the dinning room and finally getting our dinning room table, hopefully November or sooner.

I hope you all are doing well. Take care!
Much Love and Happiness,

We're going through some changes...

Within the last month or so, our life has been going through, what seems like, change. Good change, nothing bad, but still, it's been a little weird. Maybe it's just that we are finally settling into our life here in Maryland. Maybe it's the change of Summer. Maybe it's the fact that I've decided to start to exercise again. I have no idea. But whatever it is, my eyes are starting to feel open for once.

Our house, has started to feel more "homey". Great friends of ours just moved to the area and I'm definitely excited to spend some time with them and catch up. The sun has been out and shinning, (even though it's been super hot and our grass looks like it's dying). Tim's knee has been healing great. We are going on vacation in a week. Maybe these are the reasons for what feels like change.

I really have no idea what it is, but it feels good for once, it feels nice, comfortable. Exciting! And I'll not forget to thank God, for this, for these great feelings. For what He's given to us!

I hope that you all are well, and life is treating good.

Our friends down the street J and K are expecting their first little one next month, a boy!! And I just wanted to share a few of photos from K's shower!

It's been a while!

So, I've noticed that it's been a while since I've posted. I'm not the worlds greatest blogger! haha! Since my last entry, (which wasn't much of an entry), a few things have happened. My beautiful niece turned a year old!

Then Tim had knee surgery to replace his ACL and repair is meniscus. That's been a roller coaster ride! But we are very happy that he was able to have this done and have it done now, instead of needing to wait. (sorry it's a terrible picture, it was taken from my phone).

After that surgery, my brother got married. It was such a beautiful wedding and it was so much fun!!

And that brings us pretty much to today, where my grandmother just had a total knee replacement. So If you could keep her in your prayers! I would greatly appreciate that.

(my grandmother and me on my wedding day)

She's doing well and in recovery now. Looking forward to hearing another update soon, I hope!

Well, that's the update for now. Hope you are doing well.

All the best,

"Focusing on Angles!" Challenge!

This week's challenge over at iheartfaces is angels. This is the photo that came to mind. It's a little boy that struck my eyes when I was out in Uganda, Africa helping some friends who were missionaries over there at the time.

Now head on over to see all of the other entries!

The Calm Before the Storm?

So, recently things have been busy. Not crazy busy, but busy non-the less. Tim and I have finally gotten my website up and running, (you can check it out, the link is over there on the right!), I've painted (by myself, since he does NOT paint), our mast bath and our bedroom. It's finally done! And between those few projects, I've been attempting to keep up with house cleaning and volleyball! But now that those few projects ARE done, I feel like everything has slowed down. Things are running smoothly, things seem good, things seem to be in place. But is that all for now? Or will it stay this way for a while. Who knows. I do hope that it could stay this way for a while, but at the same time, I hope that another project can start again soon. Staying at home, just cleaning, and cooking, it gets boring. As much as I hate to paint because it is so time consuming, I love it because it give me something to do and it gives a fresh new look to something and I get to see an end result. So who knows. I do still have a few more rooms that need to be painted, so maybe that will be in my future. But for now, I must say, especially today, I am enjoying the clam.

LOVEING my New Lens!

So last week my new lens finally came! my sigma 70-200 f2.8. I'm in Love! I can't wait to have a photo shoot to really test this bad boy out! I've had fun shooting random things around the house, but there really isn't much here to shoot. :( All well, Here is sneak peek of what the new lens can do!:

Wow, That's a lot of Snow!

So Yes, Tim and I have been snowed in. We tried this morning, as the snow was still coming down, to dig ourselves out. Well, that did not turn out so well. The snow was at least 17 inches and in some spots upwards to 20 or so inches. That was this morning. I'm pretty sure we now have a little over two feet of snow!!! We both gave up on digging out the driveway and decided we'll try again tomorrow. I must admit, it is nice to be able to be stuck inside your house with your husband and the fireplace going!! To be forced to not go anywhere.

As of right now, the snow has stopped, and we are both very tired and cold!! The dog has finally defrosted after many attempts to get him to go to the bathroom outside! (He HATES the snow!). Here are my photos!

Welcome to February- The Month of LOVE!

Yes, Here I am. I'm going to be attempting a blog post today. With the help of those over at I Heart Faces.

Today, (or should I say all this week), they are talking about the places you Love. Sine Tim and I have been married, we have had the great opportunity to travel. As I think back at all the places we have been to, it is hard to come up with on of those places to be my absolute favorite. So I'll start here: This is a picture from our Honeymoon, Anguilla, BWI. Now We'll move onto to:

This is from a family vacation to Tortola, BVI

This is a photo on Safari When Tim and I went on a Mission Trip to Uganda, Africa! This brings back so many memories and We had such a great time!

And Finally:

This last photo here is from our latest vacation to Hawaii. We stayed on the Big Island and Went up on Mauna Kea to see the sunset above the clouds. Absolutely Amazing, Although Very Cold! Worth it all non-the-less!

So What are the places you love?

Yes, I am still here.

So as if you have, (or haven't) noticed, I've not been blogging much anymore. I have just decided that I don't usually have much to say. Most of my blog entries are all the same. I clean, I cook, I take care of my husband and my dog. Nothing has changed. It's all the same. I still clean, I still cook, I still take care of my husband and my dog. And I do love it, I love my life. I've just come to the conclusion that it's just not much to blog about. I do still want to keep my blog, so I will, in the off chance that I'll actually have something to share... But as for now. There is nothing.

The new years is going well so far. I've had a job interview and that process is still in the works. We'll see how and where that goes for the future. My birthday is next month. I'm not so excited about that, but it's life. We have lots of weddings this year and 2010 just seems like it's going to be a great year that both my husband and I are excited for! I hope you all are as well!!

Keep healthy and keep the faith in 2010! God Bless you all!!
