Lately I find myself really stuck in between seasons... this is figuratively and literally. Texas seems to be seriously stuck in between hot and cold. Last week we had days in the 90s and this morning it was 50... Texas and I are on the same page. We both can't decide where we want to be or where we want to go.

I am in that awkward, don't know what to do, I just graduated from college season (ok, I graduated May 2013...whatever). Cam and I are in the baby-less season of life... and we both go back and forth from desperately wanting one to being completely content loving on other peoples babies. To add on to that I have no idea if I want to keep up this teaching certification thing or if I want to just be a stay at home wife and live off the land. Most days I lean towards the latter.

The good news is seasons come and go... This one too shall pass and I am sure I will look back on it and miss these fleeting moments.

He's my favorite side kick.

I am trying to open my heart and mind to what God has planned for me. I pray that I am growing in Him during this season, for He is the reason I am here in the first place. I trust that He will not steer me in the wrong direction. I hope I can hear and see the direction he is taking me.

Weekend Update

Weekend update on a Wednesday... this has been the longest week ever. Last weekend Cam and I loaded up the truck Saturday morning and headed up to Oklahoma. I love going up there and am so grateful that we are able to whenever we want. In just over an hours drive we can end up in my Gram & Papa's driveway being welcomed my dogs and two smiling faces. It really is the best. Saturday's weather was pretty perfect as well, the sun was out and there was a cool breeze in the air. Fast forward to this week and it was 98. This is why I am living in the past this week.... 98 y'all. that is Summer weather.

I think those leaves are trying to change colors

Barn cats... love being in a place that has those 

these two... 

Deuce is pretty happy wherever he goes, but I think we can agree he is extra happy out here

because we are still Texans... Steak fingers for the win

Papa and Dad got a new to us tractor... I think its going to perfect for hay rides around town. 

Ol' Skip... She's going on 17 years old and is feeling her age these days. 

There are two coyotes out there... you just can't see them in this picture

Dolly girl was making sure the boys didn't need any help unloading the cows

She's a beauty

8 years

    September & October are always fun months.... they are the beginning of fall, football, campfires, and really the start of all the Holiday fun. These months are even more special to me because they hold memories of first meeting and starting a relationship with Cam. This year, 2014, marks EIGHT years of being with Cameron.

8 years.
423 weeks.
2,964 days.
71,136 hours.

That is a lot of time spent together, a lot of time spent apart, a lot of time spent watching football, even more time watching baseball. There were a lot of hours spent traveling across state lines, family trips, and family dinners. 8 years means we have spent 8 Christmas Holidays together, 8 Thanksgivings, 8 New Years, and all of the others. I have been there to meet his baby nieces and nephews. We have seen each others' siblings grow up. With all that time there are tons of memories. Good, bad, beautiful, and ugly. I wouldn't change them for the world.

Cam and I have not only grown up together, but we have grown as individuals. I was only 15 when we started dating and he was 16. Y'all, teenagers... we were basically babies. We have grown in Christ, in our families, and within each other. I can honestly say he is the one I can count on for anything. I am so grateful God crossed our paths and that He has been there to hold us accountable to each other.

I love reminiscing on the past with him and I look forward to the future. I dream of raising kids with this man. I dream of building a home. I dream of telling our kids our story.

8 years is only the beginning... bring it on life!
