Blogging? Blogging? Blogging? Who’s got time for Blogging?? Not I!

So what have we been up to since my last blog post…..back in July!?  Yeah we’ve been busy.  Blogging has definitely gone to the wayside.  The only reason this blog post happened is b/c I’m home sick from work today with an ugly cold.  So I offer you this picture post!  Here’s hoping it doesn’t take another 7 months before I post again! :-) As you can tell from the pictures below….Our life is amazingly awesome!  So far we’ve come this past three years.  It’s been three years now since I escaped an abusive relationship….ooh how far we’ve come!!  Here….see for yourself…..what we’ve been up to….004

    Dearest Ann,

    Thank you so much for sharing yourself and your beautiful, amazing daughters, Cecelia and Glenna. Your post brought joy to my heart and tears, too.

    You’ll probably never fully know much you inspire the people who are around you and people who are far away. Your post is like a ripple in still water where there is no pebble tossed.

    With love, admiration, and gratitude,
    Carol
