Life is a highway unless....

God knew what he was doing when he paired up hubby any myself. 

He knew that we would always be up for an adventure. 

Tonight hubby and I were driving home when we saw a real estate sign. We decided to check it out. Down a muddy back road we head. Not far down that road we find the place. Instead of turning around and heading back to the highway hubby decides to turn down another back road to try and meet up with our highway. 
Little did we knew what a little adventure that would be. 

Down a VERY muddy road we head. 

Squeeze between two very full sloughs. 

To realize very quickly that we were going to run out of even gravel roads. 
Down a horse trail we head. 
 Between two fields we travel wondering if we were going to have to turn around. 
But we press on. 

Saw some beautiful countryside. 

Tried to convince hubby to build me a house out there. 

 All of the sudden up pops another very muddy gravel road and shortly after we meet up with the road we were trying to meet up with. 

Nothing is ever boring. Life is an adventure. Learning to embrace the unexpected often finds oneself seeing God's creation like never before. 

Life is a highway unless of course it's a trail in the middle of well in the middle of life. :)

My crazy family

Sometimes I spend a few moments and wonder if I'm thankful for my crazy family. 
I mean don't get me wrong I am thankful for them every single day however there are moments. 

Like who but family is going to be brutally and I mean BRUTALLY honest with you. 
Such as look how much skinnier I am then you. :) 
Or gee you were such a brat growing up, I love you much more now. 

See what I mean? 

I know we all love each other but sometimes I wonder if we always like each other. 

I know they are going to be so excited I shared these pics. Lol

One thing I do know that no matter what we are ALWAYS there for one another. 

In good times and in bad. 

Aren't I just the cutest? Lol ( I am the baby)

One thing is for certain family is forever.

Stress relief

How do you deal with stress? Are you a cleaner? Eater? Shopper? Crier?
I must admit other than the shopper I have done those others upon occasion. My most common is cleaning. In fact I think hubby sometimes gets me going just so I clean. Lol
The other week though I decided I needed a break and went for a 11km walk.
This was just supposed to be a stroll. I blistered my feet so bad. Oh well. Finally texted my daughter and had her bring out some flip flops for me.

While I was enjoying the scenery I had plenty of time to just think and de-stress. 

I spent a lot of the time just talking to God. 

Seeing HIS creation all around me always puts me in a better mood. 

Being outside I find it so much easier to connect with HIM. 

Having HIM surround me with this beauty sure helped calm me and ground me. 

I need to remember to do this more often. 

Although I'm sure Rob would sooner I clean. Lol

22 years of wedded bliss

Last month hubby and I celebrated our 22 wedding anniversary. It's hard to believe that much time has passed already. After all I only feel 26 myself. 

We spent most of the day working in the yard as the snow had finally melted and it was clean up time. 

We then decided to head out for supper together. 
So off we headed into town for a nice steak supper. Afterwards we thought we might go for a movie until we realized nothing was playing that appealed to us so instead we decided to head to a park and go for a walk. 

Time alone together is a precious commodity. 

After 22 years we have sure had our ups and downs. Life has not been a even steady road more like a dangerous mountain pass. But just like the pass the ride is worth every difficult mile. 

I love you honey. I am so glad God blessed me with you!! You are an amazing head of our household. Thank you for choosing me.

Hi Everyone!!
What a break that was.
Much needed.
My mind is working differently these days.
HE is calling out to me and I am struggling to listen and to obey.

We are almost done dance season!! Yay!!! Pretty pumped about that one. Only one more day of dance and one more day of pictures.

Rob has been crazy busy at work.
He is now working nights. 7 days on 7 days off and I love it. The days off that is. :)

Our summer is already getting jam packed and for that I am very grateful.
Lots of friends and family to visit along with a whole pile of memories just waiting to be made.

We officially started the process today for international adoption. I can't tell you how that makes me feel. After years and years of talking about it, the first form was officially mailed away today!!

Things are still changing and evolving around here. I have plans to write more, I find it very therapeutic.  My topics might change now as I change and evolve.

As always we could always use and appreciate prayer.

Have a great day everyone.

It's awesome to be back!!!!
