So this is what "happy" looks like. Even though, I am still very much grieving the loss of my beloved brother, I am so happy to have found the love of my life!! SSG and I met four months ago, just a month before my brother passed away. He has been my rock these last few months. I am blessed!!
I've had a rough year... to say the least. I seperated, and divorced my husband of 15 years. I met a sweet man, and fell madly in love. Just when I thought life was great again, my brother got sick... my only brother, my baby brother... I could never even put into words how close he and I were. Shane was his name. In the span of 6 weeks, he went from a healthy, in shape 40 year old, to going home to be with Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Shane had soft tissue sarcoma... We got the diagnosis a week before he passed. So unfair, so hard to take!!
I really do not know where to begin... So much has happened since the last time I updated my blog!!
I will slowly reveal some important events in my life, as I feel more comfortable doing so. For now, I will share a few quotes from Pinterest.
It's a gorgeous day where I live. DID NOT GO TO CHURCH today. Yes, I'm feeling kinda bad about it. I have no legit excuse. Just skipped, that's all.
In other news, I have been getting my clean on. Friday afternoon and all Friday night, I cleaned, organized and scrubbed my children's rooms. I also moved some things up to the attic (all by myself.) Saturday, I gathered 5 large bags of spring / summer clothes that no longer fit me. I'll take them to a great consinment store Monday. What doesn't sell, I'll donate to Goodwill. I've also started organizing my closet. I bought cutsey hot pink hangers. I will eventually only have hot pink hangers... Check out this photo for inspiration!
Been going through a few changes recently. For starters, I have lost weight. I began my weight loss by cutting back on refined carbs., eating smaller portions and just trying to eat a cleaner diet overall. It worked!! Also, I have learned to tolerate exercise!! I have worked my way up to walking, jogging, and weight training most days. I'm excited about making my body stronger and healthier. Working out has also helped relieve a lot of stress, I'm happy to report.
