About Me

My photo
I live on 6 deeply wooded acres in the boonies of Middleville, MI. I'm married to an amazing man, Brian. He's pretty much the best thing that has ever happened to me. I'm a big animal lover. I have 5 cats; Bella (6), Cognac (3), Georgia (3), Maggie (2), & Auggie (8-9mos.) We recently lost our kittens, Aesop & Amelia, to a battle with Feline Leukemia. I feel the need to mention them. They were amazing beings that showed unconditional love like no other cats I've had. I also have Cheech (9) that I'm fostering. We have two puppies; Charlie & Henry. Having a blast! I'm a dabbler in photography, photo shop, & crafts. I'm kind of a bookworm/nerd/geek. Yes, I have read the Twilight Series. No, I'm not obsessed. I love Shakespeare, Nathaniel Hawthorne, C.S. Lewis, and L. Frank Baum - among others, obviously.

94 Days And Counting...

Hello, my wonderful readers! (I love all four of you... ;) )

Lots of things are happening. Brian and I have 94 days Holy crap! until the wedding. Crazy! I'm surprised at how fast it's going. Although I shouldn't be since this is exactly what my friends told me would happen...

Brian and I are going to be Godparents! That's so awesome. My cousin, Sara, (who is my maid of honor) had a beautiful bouncing (not literally...) baby girl in January. Her name is Natilee Rose Shay. Sara asked me about two weeks ago if Brian and I would be Natilee's Godparents. And I must say I am so honored that Sara would even consider Brian and I. Brian and I are truly happy with this decision. Natilee's baptism is on April 14th. So, I'll hopefully get a few great pictures to post on here.

I may have a pastor for the wedding. So, that's awesome. He's actually the same pastor who spoke at my Grandmother's funeral a couple years ago. He's amazing. He's from The First Baptist Church of Hastings. He's a great guy. So, hopefully I'll be able to have him perform our marriage ceremony. The problem with a July 4th wedding is the fact that it's a holiday. So, it makes quite a few wedding plans a bit more complicated.

Also, Brian and I are about 98.9% sure that we'll be taking an Alaskan Cruise for our honeymoon. It departs from Canada on July 8th. So, I need to get crackin' on my passport photos and get that sent out. I hear it takes about two months... fingers are crossed... We'll be traveling aboard the ms Volendam.

So, YAY!

Also, here is a random video that I like: Guaranteed Laughs!


This is Cognac. Brian's kitty. This is my favorite shot of him.



  1. Yay for the Alaskan Cruise! :) P.S.- love the kitty shot!

  2. Yeah, Cruise!

    Cognac is all cute and innocent in that picture... Really, he's just a whiner.... Aaannnd a sucker for kitty treats. (Hence, whining.)
