WOW!! So I left this morning for a planned trip to visit my brother for a short time and the WHOLE 2 hour drive (which turned into a 4 hour drive) all I could do was think about my husband. I see him every day and I am going to see him tomorrow too...but for whatever reason I really started missing him, to the point I almost turned around and went home. We have been together for 4 years, 1 whole year of that he was deployed, and every year since he's been home he's had to leave for training for AT LEAST 2 weeks, if not a month...and even though I missed him then, it seems when I know its only a short time apart from him, I find myself going crazy and just wanting to be with him again! When they say absense makes the heart grow fonder, I KNOW what they mean!! Call me crazy for having this feeling and call me a crazy newley wed...I don't care!! But I CAN NOT wait to go home and see my husband again! I LOVE BARNEY!!!! p.s. I am still glad to be spending time with my brother though too.

I ♥ Spring

Last night I worked on cleaning out a large flower bed at our new house and discovered A TON of new perenial plants coming up...and they are TALL already! I'm not sure yet what some of them are going to be, but I am so excited to find out! AND I even found another plant coming up in a different flower bed that I didn't think had any perenials in it!! Yeah! We even got to enjoy our first "picnic" out side last night! Haven't eaten outside at the picnic table yet, until last night!! Unfortunatly, the temps have started dropping again and they are talking snow...but at least it's certain that this time of year, any snow that shows up usually doesn't stick around too long!

My Personal List of Current Events

♥My biggest task lately has been to finish cleaning/unpacking/organizing our house for we are having a little get together at the end of the month for Barney's 30th Birthday & to show off our new house. My "free" time has been spent working on that, even though somedays, it just doesn't feel like I've gotten ANYWHERE. However, this past weekend I did manage to make a large dent in that project! Yeah!!! I'm seeing the light at the end of the tunnel! ♥As previously mentioned, my husband's 30th birthday is looming around the corner...and although I'm excited to celebrate this milestone with him, I find slight fear in the fact that I, too, am nearing the big 3-0 and am not too fond of that fact. I struggled on my 25th birthday and still do! I feel like time is running out...for what, I don't know, but I just fear those big milestone birthdays...but I guess there is no changing it :( ♥DATE NIGHT this week!!! Thursday marks 4 years that my husband and I have been together as a couple! Last year (after our marriage course's suggestions) we decided that every year on April 14th we would evalute and discuss our my project this week is to come up with my list of goals for Thursday nights discussion. I enjoy going over these things with my husband, and more so, I feel so blessed and thankful for everything that has happened to me/us in these last 4 years! I you, Barney! ♥Easter is around the corner!! I LOVE the spiritual aspect of this holiday. It is the most beautiful holiday in everything that it stands for in the Catholic faith. This time each year marks "new life" and Easter is the kick off fo the new life. Jesus died and rose to a new life at Easter; Easter is in the spring, when all dormant things come alive and the air is full of life and new beginnings. Happy Easter season to all! ♥Sadly, this past weekend my Great Aunt Gen passed away. She used to own the little grocery store, Pine Grove Grocery, on the west side of town with her husband, uncle Tommy. When we were little kids we would go visit them and Aunt Gen would ALWAYS let us sneak behing the counter and have a few pieces of candy! I remember how we were always SO excited to go there and visit Tom & Gen...I can still smell the smell of the store and the butcher shop! At church, there is a little old lady that always reminds me of Aunt Gen and Sunday I saw her and was thinking about Gen and found it ironic/humbling when I returned home from church yesterday morning I had seen the message that Aunt Gen passed away...and I had JUST been thinking about her. She will be least she can rest in peace with Uncle Tommy now

Starting a Blog

So...a friend has a blog that I have sort of started following...and I became interested. I thought it would be fun to do ... a new way to share my thoughts and share our life.

My husband (Barney) and I (Becca) just got married last August. THE MOST WONDERFUL DAY OF OUR LIVES!!! We had been dating for 3 1/2 years. We met at a wedding...his aunt married my uncle...and we just clicked from that day on. We enjoy the outdoors: we hunt, fish, camp and pretty much do almost anything outdoors. We like to garden, bake and cook. We are sports fans and we like John Deere Tractors.

We just purchase a BEAUTIFUL home 3 miles out of town on a 50 acre lot!!! It is amazing and we absolutely LOVE it! We are so excited to see what spring and summer has to offer us out here and are looking forward to all the garden space!!

I'm not sure where this blog is going to lead to...or what type of entry's I'll have, but I'm up for it! Hopefully whoever finds themselves reading about my life finds it enjoyable!
