Moving! Please follow!

I am blogging over at Catching an Adventure and Our Adventure in Cooking now. 

This blog seems to be who we used to be. Our lives are different now that we are not in the military full-time, we are not homeschooling (although Scarlett is home with me), but we are together, being a family, and enjoying our time together.

Pleas join me there and consider following those blogs. 
Thanks so much!

Kelly's Korner is doing a momgram swap. 
I have one item that I am interesting in getting rid of.

Monogrammed in yellow with Caroline.

I can send you a paypal receipt.

If interested please leave me a message and I will get back to you. We are headed out of town for a funeral, so my computer options are very limited. Be patient, I will get back to you.

The Pirate Queen

What a great book that shows that a woman can over look her broken heart to help the ones that she loves. Saphora Warren blossomed into the kind of woman you want to be on your side. She stood up to and for the people in her life while becoming a woman who is better than who she was.

I loved that even with the temptation to point out her husband's fault's, Saphora took the high road and kept those negative thoughts to herself. She showered grace on her family like a true southern lady.

Good Morning Girls

I am participating in this.
And is it awesome.
You still have a chance to participate.
Click on the picture to visit the Good Morning Girls website.

I want to live intentionally with my kids. I want them to know how much I love and cherish them. I completely blew it as they were walking out the door to school. I need to apologize and ask forgiveness. They should know every moment of the day that I love them. They also should know that holes in their shoes are not important.

Big Events

There are times in my life when I can remember where I was and what I was doing.

  • Beginning of the 1st Gulf War - eating dinner at church

  • USS Cole bombing - driving to work in Maryland

  • Sept 11, 2001 - nursing my 2 week old 1st child in Maryland

  • Beginning of the war in Iraq - at home in North Carolina, we were the guardians for 3 kids whose mother was in that convoy out of Kuwait into Iraq.

  • Saddam Hussein is captured - just moved in Florida

  • Usama Bin Laden is confirmed dead - nursing my 10 week old 3rd child in California.

I know that there are many other significant events out there, but none that hit so close to this military family as these. Its amazing what has shaped our lives and the lives of our children.

I don't rejoice in the fact that there is a person who is dead. I rejoice that his rule over people is over. I hope that the people that were following his lead will see that there is a better life than the one they are leading.
