Happy Memorial Day! As I’m sure many of you have been celebrating the holiday with your loved ones & delicious food, ours is practically the complete opposite. Joshua is at work, and I’m home studying. Exciting right?! Ha Ha! Thats okay, because soon enough (September), we’ll be enjoying a 2 week vacation together. With the scorching temperatures here, I must say it will definitely be nice to get away for a little while and give Joshua a break from his long work days.
Not only is it Memorial Day, it’s also Monday which means one thing… Marvelous In My Monday is happening. Before I get into what’s Marvelous in my life at the moment, I feel it’s only necessary to give a big thanks to Katie @ Healthy Diva Life. Katie started this link-up 51 weeks ago, and since the very first day, I feel it’s been incredibly beneficial to all of us. Were able to share the happiness and joy that’s going on in our lives. To me, that right there is an absolute perfect way to start any week ❤
Marvelous is… finding a photographer to take updated photos of Joshua & I while we’re on vacation! (below photo is from 2009)
Marvelous is… not only did I gain another TWO pounds this past week, but a coworker of Joshua’s who I hadn’t seen for a little while didn’t even recognize me because of my weight increase. It just goes to show that not only can you gain weight by eating healthy, but with determination, heart, and focus you can make a dent at fulfilling your dreams. I may not be ovulating quite yet in chance of getting pregnant and having a baby that my husband and I hope for.. but every improvement is just one step closer
Marvelous is… knowing that I’ve been blessed with the most incredible husband. Joshua has been my rock for 10 years, and to this day I still find myself falling deeper & deeper in love with him. I honestly sit, think, and thank God everyday for giving me such an amazing person to love and grow old with. Joshua has worked hard to give us the life we have, and I don’t think I could ever put into words how much his sacrifice truly does mean to me. ❤
Marvelous is… baking flaxseed bread for the first time this weekend. Recipe coming at ya tomorrow!
Marvelous is… taking a minute out of your day right now to give thanks to all the men and women who have died while serving our country. My hearts and prayers go out to their proud and incredible family members
..and one last thing to remind yourself today…
“Think of all the beauty around you, and be happy” ❤
