flash back friday

3 years ago today and newly wed, husband and i had just returned from our honeymoon in st. lucia.  i can remember being nervous about spending that much time with him.  i was afraid by day 4 we would realize, although we love each other very much, spending 24/7 together made us not like each other very much.  but i was pleasantly surprised!  we had so much fun relaxing and having adventures.  below are are some pics from the trip.  i hope we will one day be able to take a trip like this again.
catamaran adventure = rum punch starting at 10 am
fun at a volcano! 
yay rum punch! 
hanging out in the sunshine
i stayed in the boat with an old lady.  i have been snorkeling before and was not excited about seeing barracudas up close and personal again.  but husband had a great time.
diamond waterfall
sunset pics
i am so blessed to be with this man i call husband!

have a great weekend

etsy ecstasy

my man purse and i

i own a bionafied man purse that in inherited many, many years ago ... from a man.  i have decided that no mater how perfect it is in every way (space, original color, comfort, etc.) it is time for it to retire and be used for fishing trips only.

i do not have the funds to replace my beloved man purse right now.  but i have decided there is no reason i cant start window shopping.  that way, when the glorious day arrives, the decision making will have already been taken care of :)

what are the characteristics that this man purse replacement bag must have?
  • plenty of room to carry things for other people as well as my own things.
  • must fit comfortably across the body 
  • not too bulky 
  • match in color and style with most, if not all, of my wardrobe.  
  • it must compliment me when i am feeling ugly. 
  • it must cheer me up when i am having a bad day. 
  • and it must never EVER judge me when we take a trip to the taco bell drive thru. 

i think the orange is my absolute fav!  its like a grown up man purse ... yet not manly, which is good. 

one day i will have a mature bag to replace the man purse and i will then reveal to you the obscene thing that i have been carrying around.  im not going to lie ... it may be too much of a temptation to keep it, even for fishing adventures.  i would be scared that one day i would long for the comfort of my beloved man purse and fall back into the clutches of evil, ugly bags.  

until this day, i will enjoy the time we have left together ...

i would like to apologize for my "missing in action" blogging style lately.  its kinda been a crazy time for husband and i ... lots of stress, praying and possible changes coming up (and no, im not talking about a baby).  for now, i leave you with a relaxed pic from our recent trip to the zoo and a little something from 1 peter 5:6-11.
Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.  Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
Be self-controlled and alert.  Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.  Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings. 
And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.  To him be the power for ever and ever.

flash back friday

today, i am flashing back to a time in my life when i learned a lot about myself, relationships and friendships.  when i moved away (dont get me wrong, it was only an hour away from where i grew up), i was surrounded by strong, beautiful people.  not only did i have friends that lived nearby, but in the people i met, i found sisters, mothers, aunts and mentors.  i shared so much of myself with these people, and in return they allowed me into their lives as well.  there are a few i see often, some we chat every now and then about getting together soon, and there are a couple i may never see again.  it is these relationships that helped mold me into who i am today ... and for that, i am very blessed!

... when two became one

Love always protects, always trusts,
always hopes, always perseveres.

Love bears all things, believes all things,
hopes all things, endures all things.

dear husband, 

you are my favorite person! 

with all my love, 

today is mine and husband's 3 year anniversary (which means i have a reason to show off our wedding photos).  it has been 3 years of living, learning and best of all, loving!
