and it feels so good. so hang on to your hats because this is going to be a long one.
i left you a miss and returning a mrs. is this as crazy for you as it is for me? i feel no different...should i? i guess it is not living in sin, but now just living? what are all these questions about? why do i keep asking you people that aren't even gonna answer? i will stop with the weird talk. better?
truly though, my wedding day was the happiest day of my life. it was beautiful, it was perfect, it was everything i could have asked for. i could not have done it without the help of our family, especially mama bear and papa bear. they are so special to me and the time, effort and love they put into our wedding day was such a blessing. it was all made possible by them.
not only did i come back a married woman, but i come to you as a mama of another fur baby. my new baby sam (as in the great Sam Houston State University) is so sweet. let me tell you though, she is a die hard mama's girl (yes, i am her mama, don't hate). i thought maddie had a serious attachment to me, but now i am thinking that it was my attachment to her that i was mistaking as her fault. this cat (actually she is a dog, but you know how people say "this cat" when referring to someone, i am doing that here. hope this helps clear up any confusion) is serious when it comes to me. never in my life. poor maddie, she is not even allowed to cuddle without sam going postal on her. i took them both to the vet last week, i was holding sam in my arms and maddie on her leash. the tech came over to offer me a hand while i checked in and took sam from me. sam flipped out true sally field "not without my daughter"* style, flinging herself all over the place, throwing her head back, kicking her legs, crying. i wanted to tell the vet that her daddy taught her that but then it might sound weirder to say that than to just admit that she has attachment issues. but aside from all of that she has stolen my heart. she brings me such joy. having both of my pups makes my heart so full.
moving on. as far as the new house goes, we are LOVING it. it starting to feel like home and i am slowly but surely getting decorations up. i will do a christmas decor post soon.
for right now, i am loving life and a HUGE part is my job with ACS. i work with some of the best volunteers and so blessed everyday to get to share the journey with them. i am absolutely, 100% in the place that God had and has planned for me. my life is so full in abundance of love, happiness, family, friends, and all the "cherry on top" things that make life so sweet. so don't go far, this is only the beginning!
