Summer in November has Ended

Last week (Nov. 19th), my husband and I celebrated 12 years of being together. 12 years ago, our love story began. Nick and I couldn't be more thankful that God decided to add a new chapter to our love story this year; our sweet Piper Grace.

This year has been the most amazing year, yet. We are so incredibly blessed!

This weekend, our little "summer in November" officially ended. I was surprised Sunday morning when I woke up and saw a whole lot of white outside our windows!

There's just something about waking up early to a quiet house with snow covering everything outside. I think I'll go out on a limb and say that I kind of like winter. Actually, now that I don't have to travel in the snow (being a work-at-home/stay-at-home mom and all) I'll retract my statement and say that I downright love winter!

The snow inspired me to start writing out our Christmas cards and also got me in the mood to bake (about 10 dozen) cookies. After baking all day, my husband and I made a lasagna together for dinner. Let's just say, Sunday was a great, treat-filled day!

After eating too many cookies and some very not-good-for-you-at-all lasagna for dinner, I was surprised this morning to see that I am down two pounds from my highest weight of the month (248 lbs down to 246 lbs.) I took last week off from Jazzercise classes since I was on antibiotics but, I'll be starting back up tonight or tomorrow! Hopefully with the added exercise and watching what I eat, I can maintain this two pound loss throughout Thanksgiving weekend!

Readers, how was your weekend? Did you get any snow?

  1. Pictures like that really make me wish it snowed here! It's been about 25 years since I lived in a place that was accustomed to snow though, so even just an inch of snow on the ground shuts everything down and causes everyone to freak out and stock up on milk and bread (I'm not even joking... the store shelves will literally be cleared of bread the day before the snow is expected to come.)

    Happy 12 years! What a beautiful love story you have :)
