I've been meaning to post..  and meaning to post..  but somehow, the days kept getting away from me and or by the time I would come to a stop at night, I didn't have energy or inspiration and I am a sucker for procrastinating.. 

I really, kinda shamefully, am in awe of parents who have a full schedule. I mean, by the time I drive home (45 minutes in traffic), walk the dog, chat with TN for a little bit, come up with dinner, actually make dinner, eat, clean up/do dishes, take the dog on her last walk of the day, maybe do laundry or other misc. house cleaning, take a shower and then come to a stopping point..  granted, I did sit down while I ate dinner.. but still, once I come to a stopping point, I don't want to watch movies or play games or even think, I just want to play dead in the big daddy lounger until I feel the urge to move to bed..  hah. SO... I can't even imagine adding in wiley kid(s), soccer games, homework, diapers, etc, etc, etc..   I am sure you adapt but damn..  

Life is good these days though..  albeit in limbo as we are ready to move back up to Tennessee but sticking around here for financial and work obligations til' the end of June we are still having a great time. In fact I can't see my life with TN not being a great time, he makes life light hearted & fun and for a serious eyebrow raiser such as myself, it's a good combination.

It stormed quite a bit last week.. I really love it.. I wish it would storm for a little while every day or so, not stay gloomy the whole day but for a couple/few hours..

Just happened to stick my camera in my jacket pocket as I walked outside with Tennessee last night to hang out with him while he was working on his tail lights. I perched myself on his tailgate and in between holding the flash light and other very important tasks, I clicked away at the sky.. I love sunsets, subtle or bursting, I think they are all pretty.. the colors that appear at sunset or sundown.. are like no other.

Additionally, I think I have a thing for metal and rust..  I really enjoy capturing both in the many, many places you can find them..

Can't leave out the morning sky..  it can be just as inviting and beautiful as nighttime.

Filling in the Blanks.. Love.

1.  The love of my life is funny, kind, smart, sweet, sexy, endearing, unique, responsible, strange..  and I love every bit of him..  his name is Tennessee.

2.   Falling in love is like the best of your moments all compiled into one, amazing, feeling.  

3.  Marriage is just a word & confirmation..   genuine commitment on the other hand, is something completely differently and not for the light hearted or light minded.

4. The longest relationship I've ever had was 7 years, although  not every moment was terrible, it was 7 years that I could’ve been happy and wasn’t. Lesson learned.

5. The key to a good relationship is learning how to be selfless and being open, it just won’t work..  very well, without these key ingredients.

6. I feel loved when someone does something for me they know I love without me ever so much as mentioning it. Having someone really know you.. is love.

7.  My favorite quote about love is  “In love the paradox occurs that two beings become one and yet remain two.”  Erich Fromm

Now that everyone has been notified of our plans..    I can finally tell you, we are MOVING BACK TO TN! I am so excited I can barely stand it..   it was always our long term plan to return but after some consideration, we have decided that with our future plans, now would be better than later. 

I feel a lot better now that everyone is aware, I feel like it is coming to fruition, not just an idea anymore.

We have some exciting things to look forward to in moving back, I have never looked more forward to the future.

plain ol' cupcake. all I need to celebrate!

Kinda Lazy.

That's what we pretty much are on the weekends..   don't get me wrong, there aren't a pile of days worth dishes in the sink or overflowing laundry, in fact we usually do most chores on the weekend but we also do a fair amount of lounging and that's how we like it for now..  we think nothing of hanging out on the couch half the day or more playing video games, watching tv/movies, being online, etc..     but we do venture out to the local parks and what not.
I wasn't feeling very good yesterday so other than a couple errands, we were supremely lazy and I took a lovely 2 and a half hour nap..
But today we threw the football around, fought each other off with tree limb swords, played around with the frisbee and took a walk thru the trees..   it was beautiful weather too, 58 and sunny with a breeze!

Busy and Not At All.

Hi All..   I am sorry for the lack of presence, I don't have a good excuse other than I am consumed..  and yet, not really? I am no more physically busy than normal but we have other pending creations going on that can't be put into effect just yet that are completely consuming mentally.. so much so that I find myself pushing thru all the moments of the day just to get to the next so we can pull the trigger.

In completely random news, I have really been enjoying a new music genre (to me). Doom county it's called..  I love "regular" country but this is so invoking, inviting..  I am instantly transported to a bayou shoreline, a backwoods stomp, moonshine & muddy feet. Have a listen..
