10 YEARS!


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!!
