start of something new

(like the cheesy high school musical quote?!)

today is september 1st. i can’t beleive summer is already over. life is flying by. a very big statement for a twenty year old to make. many others my age are counting down the day until they’re twenty one. sure, it will be amazing to buy my moscato and other drinks but i’m trying to enjoy life where i am right now.

close to a year ago (11-10-11) i married the love of my life, my best friend, my marine. we met senior year of high school. eight months later he left for MCRD San Diego and after a year and a half apart, thousands of dollars spent on plane tickets and hotels, we got married.

in december i moved from my home sweet home, just northwest of chicago, to a military base in north carolina. i left behind everything i knew and everything i loved to be with my husband and start our life together.

may we brought home our baby. a lab/hound mix named leo who is spoiled rotten! he also has a hard time controlling his tongue. the marine and i decided it’s just too long for his little mouth so you’ll see it sticking out in many pics. he’s not being rude, he just can’t help it! i was very homesick when i first moved, but he keeps me busy so i don’t have much time to sit around and stew anymore!

so that’s a little about me. i’m going to use this as a multimedia journal. hoping to write daily or every couple days about my oh so exciting (ha!) life and how i fill my days.

now it’s time to end this post. laundry is calling my name. what an exciting friday night!




marine wife, dog mom, coffee drinker & lover of wonderful things.

lately on instagram...
it is most certainly puppy love ❤ just be here with me. 
signed: the moon. the stars. your still-hot-cup-of-coffee. your daughter. your son. your spouse. your heart. the green grass. the wild flowers. the waters you long to swim in. the color yellow. the color blue. your favorite poem. your favorite blanket. the wind in your hair. the waves on the ocean. the mountain air. your dad. your mom. the rain. the ice-cream cone. the butter sizzling with garlic in the frying pan. the grocery clerk with the sad, kind eyes. postcards waiting to be sent. the city squirrel. the county squirrel. jupiter. the photo album. your grandma's rosary. your favorite song. ink and paper. your best friend. the money in your wallet. the fork in your hand. brushes and paint. downward facing dog. the color turquoise. the almost invisible shade of pink. god. the skyline. the earth beneath your feet. a hammock. the shade of a giant tree. this moment, right here, now. your bones. your belly laugh. your breath. your breath. your breath. (quote from pinterest) a short list of things i love: america, cocktails, red lips, my chalkboard, grilled food but most importantly long weekends spent with my loved ones. happy birthday america! thanks for giving us the day off to celebrate 🍻
