Looking Forward

It's nearing the end of October and things have changed a lot this month. I have come into a possible photography business opportunity with a local photographer, Hayden & Hayden, and I am very excited to see where this might lead. Hopefully I will be ordering business cards here soon and moving forward here in Altus.

Unfortunately, Sunny wasn't working out in our we found a loving home for her. Still I miss her of course, but I hope and pray that this is the best thing for her. Shortly after Sunny left us, my husband and I volunteered to be a foster home for the Homeward Bound Pug Rescue of Oklahoma. Our first foster is little miss Gidget and she is such a sweetie. She is a special little girl and quite the cuddle pug. It feels good to give love and a safe home to a pug in need until she finds her forever home. Plus it's just nice for Reese to have a playmate :)

Today, my husband and I have been married for 8 wonderful months, and the time has just flown by! Sure it hasn't been an easy 8 months with him being in training and our big move from home, but it has been a wonderful adventure that I am so thankful for. I thank God for my wonderful husband and these past 8 months as his wife.

Recently I have started riding my bicycle and I really have started to love doing that. Plus, it is a great way for me to exercise with my knee and back issues! So, I am hoping to stick with it and get in better shape.

What have you been up to this month??? :)

It has been quite a while since my last post and quite a lot has changed. Aaron and I are now living on the Air Force base in Altus, Oklahoma. We have a cute little two-bedroom house with a garage and a back yard (soon to be fenced in for Reese). Aaron is gone during the day till about 4:30 so I am usually stuck at the house until then, which is quite a change for me! We have a brand new Ford F-150 and it is currently our only vehicle so unless I need it, he takes it during the day.

So I am playing housewife, which is something new and challenging for me. I have been trying many new recipes for dinner and I'm learning how to cook pretty well in my opinion. :) Consequently, I have also gained weight due to my new cooking adventures! that needs to change. Getting on a regular workout routine is on my list of things to do. Also on my list is to get a job, which has so far been unsuccessful.

Aaron and I have done a lot of exploring in our area and so far, the wildlife refuge and quarts mountain lake are beautiful and fun places to go to be outdoors. Parts of southwest Oklahoma are very beautiful, while the rest of it is VERY flat! That being said, it is very different from East Tennessee.

Also, we have a little foster doggie here are our house that we found on the side of the road, along with three of her siblings. We took them to a nearby vet's office and they knew of the dogs and who a possible owner was, but they told us we could take one. We have named her Sunny. Not sure if we will get to keep her, but she is a sweet dog and she deserves a forever home. She was skinny and malnourished but is growing stronger and bigger everyday. Reese loves her already, haha. Well..I suppose that is all for now...God bless :)
