Wow….it has been awhile. Please forgive the lack of posts and updates. Some of you might be wondering what happened in my sabbatical (ALOT) so today I plan to update you. So here goes…..In short, since I last posted, I have….gotten engaged, married, turned 21, and am now currently expecting our first baby. Yes, yes I know we move fast! HA! But I would not have it any other way! The Lord knows best and we are letting him direct our paths.
On June 9th, 2018 the love of my life and best friend asked me to be his wife and of course I said yes! We set the date and three months later were married on September 22nd, 2018. It was a beautiful day and THE BEST day of my life. My dreams came true and the Lord answered my prayers! Not only for a godly and loving husband but a fairytale wedding! We went on a week long honeymoon on a private beach and had the best time of our lives. Getting to know one another on a deeper level and relaxing and enjoying ourselves after all the wedding stress! *There really wasn’t much wedding stress but at any wedding that you decorate and plan yourself can and will be a little bit stressful.* After our honeymoon we came home and currently didn’t have a home due to it being delayed. The company we bought the single wide from was far from efficient and very unprofessional. Oh well….it grew us closer to each other and the Lord. We had to work through something as a married couple right away! We had to deal with permits and inspections until we were blue in the face, but we made it. We stayed with my family for almost two months and finally to our relief and joy the home was delivered and ready to move into.
On November 8th we found out we were expecting our first sweet baby! We were shocked and nervous but so thrilled!! It has been a wonderful experience but let me say….morning sickness is REAL! I was sick for the first 4 months of my pregnancy! Whew! It was tough but with the support of my family and amazing husband I made it through that part. Now just to make it through the rest. I am due mid summer and so excited to meet this little one. I am already so in love. We also decided (before we had kids actually) that we will not be finding out the gender. We love the old fashioned ways and the surprise and joy it is going to be when we finally get to meet our baby the Lord has blessed us with! Please keep the baby and I in your prayers as we finish this journey and start another. With all of that being said…. I will post individually about each life event with pictures and in greater detail. I just thought I would start out with this post and go from there.
I would love to hear from my readers…would you all like me to keep speaking on the single side of things or broaden my topics to single ladies, married ladies and young mothers? As this is where I am headed and will be starting a wonderful new journey now. Please let me know your thoughts!
Blessings and love to all my faithful readers!!
