I just had to break my blog break long enough to share my beautiful flowers...

Too bad we have to leave in the morning for the Jersey shore. (Gary's daughter Stacy gets married on the beach!)

I hope the flowers are still good when we get back Tuesday.

Last night I couldn't sleep!!  Gracie has been fidgety at night.  Down off the bed...  back up on the bed...  and so on.

Then she tries to jump back up and can't make it.  :-(  At one point she kind of fell and I was in a pretty deep sleep.  I woke myself up and jumped out of bed to pick her up and put her in the bed.

I hated taking her to the kennel tonight.  The house is empty without her.

Honestly.  When I think about ever losing her, I get really sad.

Oh, don't worry.  She's okay.  As feisty as ever!  It's just that I think about these things now and again.

I sent my completed manuscript today.  What a job getting everything together!!

Today was my own deadline and I was determined to get it out.  *breaths sigh of relief*

Anyone who knows me realizes that I'm not one to share intimate details about my life so easily.  This book was hard to write because I had to open myself up to some truths and share things that I had a hard time even admitting to myself.

God has brought me on a journey.  He has taught me so much in the past ten years.

Ours (mine and Gary) seemed like a fairy tale beginning but quickly our onboard baggage became much bigger than we ever expected it would be.

But it's our Anniversary~ and we have made it TEN YEARS!

And I still love my husband, and he loves me!

Happy Anniversary Gary!!


  1. Happy Anniversary! About Gracie - - have you thought about having a little ramp or some steps so she can get on the bed easily? I don't know how much room you have - - but it would be easier for all of you to sleep then.

  2. Happy Anniversary to two wonderful people. I'm so glad you guys found each other. And, yes, I was thinking about a little ramp thingy for Gracie too. God Bless you both and have a wonderful time at the wedding. Hopefully Gracie will have a good time with SamPson if he's still there.

  3. Maybe you could try leaving your beautiful bouquet in the fridge while you're gone. Enjoy your time away and the wedding; Gracie will be fine - mad at you when you get back, but fine. :)

  4. Happy Anniversary to you TWO! Love the flowers! Enjoy the wedding and say your vows along with them to celebrate:) Have a blessed day dear Bobbi, HUGS!

  5. Happy Anniversary! Your flowers are beautiful :)
    Maddy and Owen

  6. Happy Anniversary and congratulations! Gorgeous flowers. I always miss my dog when we take her to the pet sitter. Enjoy your break.

  7. Congratulations on your anniversary and the completion of your manuscript. I think we all worry about the day when our loved ones will leave us. I love my boys and each time I lose one, I mourn and then I adopt again.


  8. Happy Anniversary, precious friend... I am so happy for y'all....

    PS... when my Jazz got older, he needed to potty more during the night... don't know if that's Miss G.'s prob, but thought I'd toss it out there.. we are ooing and ahing over the cut pic of her snoozing...


  9. A somewhat belated Congratulations to you both!! Hope the wedding went well...and to the Jersey shore!! Did you come back with that great accent? lol
    Gracie, I am sure, had a great time at the kennel.....ever think she may be like a kid who can't wait to 'go to camp'? Just sayin'....
