the way it is now

I didn't think I'd write about this again.
I wrote this on Saturday but walked away from it
without hitting publish.
Today it feels like I just have to.
So here goes...

what's up Wednesday

I don't know about you but I'm amazed at how quickly this week is blowing by.
We survived spring break from school last week.
Insert high five emoji here.
We enjoyed a staycation here in Houston
and did little to next to nothing
{which is perfect in my humble opinion}.
Unfortunately I'm two lessons and four chapters behind
in my courageworks class but I'll get there.
More on that in another post that I've been writing in my head.
It's good y'all. 
Not my writing, but the guts of it.
I'm learning and growing where it counts.
I feel it in my bones but more importantly in my heart.
I fell down for a minute after someone hurt my feelings
but baby, let me tell you -
instead of giving up
I chose to use what I've been learning in class
and I moved past it.
It still stings when I think about it but
I'm rising strong and proud of it.
So instead of thinking of what I didn't get done
I'm choosing to look at what I have accomplished this week...

life lessons in one song

First off I'd like to wish my sister and her husband 
{who is truly like the brother I never had}
a very happy anniversary.
They celebrated twenty years of marriage this week.
Marriage is hard work even between two perfect partners
and these two are exactly that.
Congratulations and here's to many more happy years. ;)
I hope its ok to share that he planned and saved for over a year
to surprise her with a new wedding band and upgraded engagement ring
since they were young and broke fiscally challenged
when they first got married.
I know.
He's a keeper especially because he knows how lucky he is to have her :)
Happy Anniversary to you two lovebirds.
{Can't wait to see y'all in June.}

Some of you may know that I love country music.
As a matter of fact around the time I started this blog
my favorite tune at the time {and to this day} was

house in the 'hood

I have a hard time believing that this house in the 'hood
hasn't been snapped up yet.
It better sell quickly or Houston we might have a problem.
{And by Houston I mean my husband.}
Herewith my favorite house in our 'hood for this week...

powder puff

I'll be honest.
When zipper lady thought I was in my thirties the other night
immediately I thought it must have been my hair...
because I strategically had it cut, colored, and styled the afternoon of the wedding.
I ain't no dummy y'all...
I like to plan ahead :)
So as I'm sitting there in the chair waiting for the dye to do its thing
I started perusing pinterest and chatting away with my hip hairstylist Marie...

my first big beautiful Greek wedding

Hope y'all are having a fantastic start to the week.
Over the weekend my friend Rena's daughter Kara got married
in THE most beautiful wedding I've ever attended.
I'd never been to a Greek wedding before
and I have to say that for future weddings 
the bar is now set incredibly high...
