I finally got an invite to Pinterest.
Being a visual person (with no decorating sense at all), it is almost a mind blowing find for me! I do not have the ability to think of a decorating idea in my head or see an item in the store and visualize how it will fit into my home. Beyond that, being able to pin something you see on the internet that you hope you will always remember (but, let's face it, I've got too much Nick Jr. and Call of Duty stuck in my head to fit any more). What I have the most fun pinning are Favorite Places and Spaces. I love to look at what others' have done with the spaces in their homes.
Imagine waking up in this every morning, especially with all the sunlight through those spacious windows.
This just says cozy to me!
O.M.G. Need I say more?!
This would be my dream vacation, waking up on the blue water every day, just step out to swim in the morning light. Heaven!

Passing two payday loan stores this morning, it makes me wonder how many people will be using these services for Christmas. Times are really hard, I know we will be scraping and stretching to buy for 4 boys this year.
Remembering my Christmases as a kid, an only child, I always had plenty under the tree. It was never anything extravagant or expensive, maybe equivalent to buying from Family Dollar, but having so many beautiful packages under the tree was pricesless for me as a girl. My parents did struggle the first few months after Christmas every year, my dad working at a factory and my mom a part time lunch morther so she could be there for me.
Though we will be hard pressed with our growing family, there are so many families who will be so much less fortnunate. Hurting and hungry. Remember them when you can't get the new Dancing Elmo this year, or that new game system. It will be alright for most of us, just pray for the others and remember to give as much as possible, there are some who won't get much else.

He drives me crazy sometimes but Rick is my best friend. He's always there when I need him (especially dinnertime when I can't stand to cook).
He surprised me and arranged to renew our wedding vows on our anniversary. I finally got my church wedding!
This was our actual wedding, at the hospital at 4am the night before Aidan was born. When we visit the hospital they still remember us as the people that got married there.
And after all this, he still loves me!
