Wedding update


I got my dress, can’t try it on with out another set of hands and sent out a 911 on Friday to all my friends. Nothing yet.

We got a 10 x 30 wedding tent and a white tarp so we will have a space of 10 x 60 if it rains. If not we will b even better.

Wanted a reception and had people suggest a pot luck so we are working on that. I have my bouquet started. We still need to get more chairs, need to go back to augusta and get copy of my divorce papers so we can get the license, david hasn’t started on his stuff at all, alter, clothes, stumps. We are going fancy rustic. Birch wood log alter, like a bunch of stuff to match.

Going with just royal blue and white decor, making it all myself. Still need the cake.

Two days short of a month left!!!

New light


In the past eight months exactly sept 1, there have been so many drastic changes in my life. All for the better in one way or another.

I met my soul mate, again.

We bought a house

We moved in together which means a new town and new school, all new streets and neighbors.

I was diagnosed with cervical cancer to add to my list of health issues.

They removed all the cervical cancer!

Learning to DIY everything from windows to floors to lights and faucets!

I have never had my own yard nevermind an acre! !

Getting married in one month and 14 days, doing almost all of it ourselves.

My life hasn’t been the worst but I have seen my share of horror and evil in this world and believe everything in my life has been preparing me for this, my happy ending.

I struggled to be a disabled mom and dad to my son’s who I wanted to grow to be healthy and happy young men going out to live full lives as adults and not feeling the need to compensate for what they didn’t have as boys. A father, money, a home and a mother who wasn’t sickly. My focus has been on myself and my family mentally and emotionally for so long that once my older son left home for school, I felt a little lost. My other boy is 14, 6 feet tall and full of confidence as to who he is. That’s when David came into my life after 25 years. I realized he was gods way of saying,” it’s ok to find love and let go, be happy, let all that work pay off,” and that’s exactly what it has been like for 8 months.

Cancer free


It is with great emotion that I tell you, I was recently diagnosed with cervical cancer. They immediately started on removing it. I had two different proceedings done and after my second , they say it’s all gone!

I am STILL remodeling my house, still planning a backyard wedding for October 14 and then this, I was more frustrated that I had to remain in bed for a week than anything else! Lol  it just never crossed my mind they would fail. I was just not worried, I new, I just had that feeling inside that it was all going to be ok and they would get rid of it all. I was in bed with no problems for the first three days, then on day four I moved around a bit, day five- more and on day 6 was put back to bed rest. Pushed it. Yesterday was day one week and I’m still trying to be easy but it’s so hard with everything else going on.

I still have a , I guess u could say, dormant mass inside my intestines that has just stayed there, not changing, not growing, not doing anything. It’s been there for a few years and the concern has always been with major surgery and how my body would handle it. This was not a major surgery but it was still pretty invasive, I think I handled it just fine. The Dr don’t want to mess with it if they don’t have to, I can see y.

I start with a new primary care next week and am very excited. I have been dealing with so much unknown that it’s got me frustrated, I’m hoping a new set of eyes will finally find me some answers.
