Been Gone Too Long!

     Well I did not expect to be away from the blog this long! It has been super busy between celebrating my first year of marriage, to being sick, to a whole list of things that happened all at once. We just had some rain so I figured that while the hubby is asleep and the cat is staying out of mischief, it was about time that I made myself a cup of tea and sat down and got back to blogging. This is going to be a collective blog post of everything that I have yet to blog about. It is just way easier. I can talk about everything from movie and books to a life update. This summer is going to be crazy, so I first off want to ask you to bare with me if my posts are far apart. I am going to try to write more, as well as take pictures.* I have been married a year!

For our anniversary, Colin and I took a day trip to Gettysburg, PA. That may not seem like the kind of trip other couples may like, but I love history, and drooling over old houses. We walked around and just spent the day just the two of us. It was so much fun! It was great just for the two of us to talk and enjoy being together. Our first year of marriage has included moving, grief, changing churches, and a whole lot of love. I think that with the different experiences that we have shared together it has made us closer together. No marriage is alike, and it is always going to look like someone has it better then you do.The truth however is that marriage is a perfect example of God’s love and patience that we are to give each other.

* I saw The Fault In Our Stars

Some are going to find this weird.. but… I actually enjoy going to the movies by myself. There is just something about a dark theater and no one talking to me while I am watching is enjoyable. I love being wrapped up in the plot. I watched this movie, and I am going to say that I really liked it. I cried. It did have some language, and it isn’t a movie to take the little ones to go see. It is very deep and you really do come away with a reminder of how short and unexpected life in this world is. I am not going to give any spoilers, but I will say this: I loved it, and when I came home I made sure to tell Colin that I loved him ( even though he was asleep when I got home).

* The Painted Mill

For the first time I went got the chance to go to The Painted Mill in Fallston to their monthly tag sale. I love vintage and crafting and diy projects. There were so many pieces that I wanted. The prices were amazing and I plan on going at the end of this month to see what I can find. I hope to document it this time so that you can join me in the fun. 🙂

That is pretty much all I have as far as updating goes. There has been a lot going on, between working and our busy schedules. I m going to try to blog more of my activities this summer. With that being said, I hope you have a wonderful and safe holiday weekend! Happy 4th!
