The Fleming’s Went Honeymoonin’

Guess what we did? WE WENT ON OUR HONEYMOON. (it only took us eighteen months to get our butts there) Since we got married it has always been our plan to go to Lake Tahoe for our honeymoon but life always got in the way. So, we held on to that “honeymoon stage” of our marriage until we were able to make the trip. Eighteen months later we finally made it. This was also our first time since we married that we have went on a vacation that it was just the two of us. I did not realize that until we got there when I started to miss our couple friend that we usually go on all vacations with....Read More

Not Normal

My husband came home on Monday with our gifts for this year's Birthday Ball. I had asked for a shelf to be put up in our hallway to put these gifts on display and my husband told me no. The reasoning behind this no was that he did not want to do that at this house as if we were leaving soon. Keyword is the as if part of that sentence. We will more than likely be leaving soon but there is no such thing in plan yet. So why not hang the dang shelf? There is no more work to be done in our house, no change to be done, no new to be bought because of the possibility...Read More

10 Perks of Getting Married Young

I married my husband at the age of twenty-two.  Big whoop. I married young because there were two lives that needed to be meshed together for eternity. His and mine.

Sunday Thoughts, October 2nd

The sermon from last Sunday has been something that has been on my mind a lot lately. Towards the end of that sermon our pastor mentioned that he woke up that morning with a feeling that people of his church are in some kind of battle. A battle of addiction, grief, loss, or anything in that nature. He then asked for those that are battling with some kind of emotional or physical battle to stand up so him, along with everyone else in the church, can pray for them. Jonathan, eighty percent of the attendees, and I all stood up. I was not expecting that many people to be standing up with me. I almost did not want to stand up because...Read More

Holiday Season Challenge

For the next three months I want you to write one positive thing that happened to you on that day. You do not have to write a lengthy story but just a couple words or a sentence will do. The point of this is to get you to reflect on the positive of your day. So maybe it was something you saw, something that made you laugh, an event, a scripture, a song, or simply the weather. Whatever it was, write it down. The end of the holiday season you will have three months worth of positivity written down to remember. The next three months can be stressful and hectic for everyone but that is not how it is supposed to...Read More
