Today, I am writing about YOU! Yes, You :) I am thankful for you. I am amazed that God has given me this blog to share about my life. I am beyond blessed that YOU take the time to read it each day. The "followers" I have and the people that read and don't "follow" are truly a JOY to me. It really is a testimony when I started this blog back (almost 1 year ago - blog-anniversary post coming on Oct 30th)... that God had a plan BIGGER than me.

So, thank YOU for reading and taking the time to share my Life as a Wife! I hope you find encouragement, joy and the reality that life is NOT perfect all the time :)

I get tagged a lot and forget to respond to the tags... but I love the games!! Thank you friends for tagging me. I am going to respond to my new blogger friend who is an engaged blogger with a Marine Fiance! Her blog is Smiling is Good for Your Teeth.

ICECREAM!Any kind. Anytime. I love it!

A FULL 8 hours. Yes, ask anyone that knows me well :)

4) Cold or hot?
