This month was extremely hard compared to most. I have been sick the entire month now! It started with a three day fever that kept me in bed. I forced myself to see a Doctor and I was told to just rest and get more fluids. Well THREE weeks later I went back to the Docs still sick and two bottles of cough syrup, two boxes of tissues, and many sleepless days later. Well I had an ear infection, bronchitis, and a sinus infection. I thought I had pneumonia so it was somewhat good news.

Needless to say the whole month is a blur of coughing, wheezing, snot, and coffee. I was pretty much out of it and did nothing!! So now that I'm finally getting better and I am LIVING AGAIN! I was so motivated this week to bake, clean, shop, and organize! Brian is much happier with a functioning wife =)

Turkey Bowl with our Chruch

Also BIG update! We are buying a home! YAY I'll have a HOME again!! Its been such a great learning experience working with our very professional, brother in blue and in Christ, Ray Swigert! He found us the best home in Annapolis. We close at the end of December and are waiting to see if they will fix the things we've requested.

Thanksgiving was so special with my mom and Criag.

We also skyed with the sisters and their hubbys!

I'm excited that Advent starts this week...

We have two advent banners and a bible study to enjoy for this season!

Jimmy loves his Uncle Brian

I'm so thankful for my husband! We have been married just one year but over the past few months we had been struggling with loving each other. We both realized that we tend to be very proud individuals. We were finding that when disagreements happened that neither one of us wanted to be humbled and we both fought for our own selfish desires. This became a routine way of reacting which caused horrible rifts between us and it got really messy.

Jimmy is sad because he doesn't like goodbyes!

God has been so faithful in loving and calling us back to Himself. We both realized that we desperately were lacking in God's daily Word in our lives. Its been exciting to see the change and to see the power of the Holy Spirit at work in our lives. I love how the Word of God IS active and has been so comforting and redeeming. My love and respect for Brian has been growing and I'm so blessed to be his wife!

Here we are reading my favorite story, "The hungry Caterpillar"

Jimmy LOVES the Caterpillar!! Look at his sweet smile...

I'm so happy to be on this journey with my husband

We have lots to look forward to!

I really miss blogging but unfortunately I can't upload my pictures to share with you all because my personal computer is in storage!
Brian and I moved last month and are renting with his sister her husband (and the doggie) in their home. Almost everything I own was put into a massive storage unit! At first I loved the idea of being free from my possessions and living a very simple life. But now I'm getting home sick for my things...I even miss the little things like pictures, books, DVDs, my blender, and our Christmas Decorations (that we probably won't be able to use this year).
Its been stressful trying to find the right house. How do you find the right location and property?! Its a good and bad things I know the hot crime spots of the county to avoid but that also means we aren't looking at a huge amount of houses in those neighborhoods. We are feeling really limited.

I miss my sister terribly and its only been two months...we gotta get through four years haha!

We did have an amazing vacation to visit them in Northern New York and we also spent a few days in Vermont. Best time ever to travel during Autumn! I will try to post again about our adventures and maybe find a way to get up some PICTURES!

Brian and I celebrated our ONE year anniversary which is crazy! Time has gone by so fast and I hardly remember it!
This stage of life has been hard for us. We both seem to be dealing with some issues and unfortunately its caused a lot of discontentment between us. Our schedules still don't allow for any kind of routine in our lives. Its really hard to have good communication when you never see each other! So I'm not sure what the next months hold in store for us but I am really hoping I can have a home for Christmas!!
