Never Ever Ever (Week 22)




Week 22?! Where have I been? Anywho, I'm here and I'm excited to join y'all this week for the Never Ever Ever Linkup!  So here it goes...

I will never ever ever...


*Forget our first Autumn and all the beautiful colors that come with it! 
I have to stop and stare every time I stand outside... 

*Say no to visiting an apple orchard, Minnesota Harvest Apple Orchard in Jordan, MN was our first apple orchard and we were hooked.  Once we got home and tried our goodies, Jesse was asking how soon we could go back! 



*Forget how blessed we are to have our friends and family.  
From Texas to Minnesota, every one has been so supportive and welcoming to us.  
It's been 10 months since we made this move, all of y'all have made it be such an easy transition, talking to you 1300 miles away helps it feel like we never left.  
And to our new Minnesota friends and "family"---
my heart has grown with so much more love for each of y'all.  
THANK YOU.



*And last but not least--- I will never ever be so thankful to have this man in my life.  For as long as I could remember, I have dreamt of moving away from home, getting out of my comfort zone and doing something I love to do.  Every time I tried to leave, it never worked out---jobs, school, finances---something never lined up.  I never understood it, why God would place this yearn to explore but have it not happen.  Then Jesse came along, and our lives started to align... Now we are here, together---making a life together, growing stronger together.  Great things are happening for us here and I can't wait to see where this adventure takes us next. 


Hope y'all have a blessed week, fun and safe Halloween!

Life is short...

Lately, I can't stop smiling...My heart is bursting with so much love for life & the blessings in my life. I can't get over everything & everyone in our lives. I have given my heart to God and following where He leads. I left the anger, undeserving, negativity in the past & keep moving forward.  I have this wonderful man beside me, a huge loving family, the most amazing friends AND new friendships growing stronger everyday. I love my job, peers, the company I work for. And I thank God. I give all the glory to Him! ❤️

Life is just too short to be anything BUT happy, thank you to everyone who is such a blessing in our lives! Whoo-hoo for 9 months in Minnesota!

It's been a while since I posted, we have just been taking in a lot of "us" time and exploring our new home! But I will be back more often. Stay tuned! 

In the meantime, here is a taste of fall in Minnesota. Our first official "Autumn" and we love it!
