I was juggling a full time position as a Hearing Aid Specialist, working part time as a Mary Kay Consultant, attending several networking events, attending Life Group (Bible study group), volunteering at my church and I was on a committee for the American Cancer Society. I was constantly stressed and I didn't have enough time for my puppies, friends, family or even myself. I am glad for the experiences though because it made me appreciate the moments that were unplanned and unoccupied. Things changed on May 12th, 2011. LT proposed. Immediately, I was focused on wedding plans. My duties with the American Cancer Society were complete and I was able to free up time there. I realized Mary Kay was not where I wanted to focus my energy. It was something I was doing to make a little extra money and to get products at cost but it ended up not being right for me. My skin seemed to reject the skin care products and the sales expectations required more than the 8 hours I could put towards my business. Since Mary Kay was the primary reason I was attending networking events, naturally they were no longer necessary. My life became all about work, family, friends and wedding plans. In June, LT started having pain in his lower back and all down his right leg. Within a week he was having major back surgery, at 31 yrs old! Thank God, everything went well with his surgery but he was unable to do anything for 4 weeks and he was able to do very little for 8 weeks. LT and I are very blessed to have so many people who were there for us during those 4-8 weeks. We had 5 months to plan a wedding and it was a lot of work!
So long story short ...
Wedding was beautiful!
Honeymoon was perfect!
Married life is better than I could ever have imagined! (Today is our 6 month wedding anniversary. I am told that we are not celebrating months now that we are married. Fine by me but I am still super excited!)
After the honeymoon we started looking for a new house. Talk about a nightmare! Finally we found the house for us and we move in 4 weeks! Yay!
So there are all of my excuses. I will do a better job from now on. No more excuses for not posting.
I still plan on posting the details about our wedding day, the honeymoon and the nightmare of buying a house but until then, here is a pic from our wedding...
