This month was crazy. Like as in every moment was filled and crazy amounts of stress, new people, new situations, and a new school year. I feel like my body and mind are trying to slide back into old patterns that were so present during Vaginismus's hey day. How do you train your brain to know it's no longer shackled? How do you keep living after the miracle--when you're ready to keep momentum and are tired of every aspect of your life that reminds you of the dark times?
You take a deep breath. You remind yourself to choose to walk in the light instead of darkness. You remind yourself all you can do everyday is to be thankful for the gifts you have, to do your best, and to pray, pray, pray. And leave it all out on the proverbial field and enjoy your nice quiet house with television and cats and whatnot. And you get your butt in gear and keep moving forward now that your biggest roadblock/challenge is behind you! Self, can you believe it??!!! Onwards and upwards!
To not dwell in the negative and challenges September brought, I'm going to post some happy times that were had instead, because there were so many!
Ok, so apparently I didn't think to organize the photos. Monica Gellar would be so MAD at me and dying to get in here and organize chronologically. But you will get none of that treatment! Here is a quick rundown: Janna and Shawn got married at the beginning of the month so we road tripped out and stopped at Fallingwater (again!) on our way. It was awesome and the Husby got us the tour where I could take pictures INSIDE. It killed me last time to have to keep the camera away. I'll have more interior shots for another day, but today is iPhone only. (Sorry). Then we had the wedding weekend filled with bachelorette party, a police helicopter scare, rehearsal dinner, and wedding. The bride got me AIRBRUSHED MAKE-UP STYLINGS which has ruined me for the cheap drugstore crap I slap on. Seriously. I kept wanting to pet my face and I never feel that way. Ahhh. Just thinking about it makes me want to go exfoliate my skin until it's I have no pores. ("Zero are the pores on my face" I read the preschoolers a book about zero and it's prose-y way of speaking has burrowed into my brain). Also my hair was curled by a professional and I felt very Duggar-y in a good way!
The following weekend we had a family reunion/picnic and a beautiful place.
The weekend after that we got to see the Johnson's NEW HOUSE and NEW PUPPY!
The same weekend we celebrated Joey's graduation!
The following weekend we celebrated my bro's bday and had a fire in the fire pit.
Also some nature and one random basement shot.
So try to piece the photos together yourself...I'm too tired now.
I wonder what Miss Havishams twitter account would have been called?
