An Inside Glimpse of My Thoughts...

~ I cannot believe it's already well into July. Summers go by so fast don't they?

~ Can you keep a secret? I secretly love summer flying by because I? Already have pumpkins, trick or treating and jackets on my brain. I know, I know...strange...but I love fall. Puffy heart it.

~ But this fall will be bittersweet. My better half will not be here. For six months. You may be asking why? What? And that's because for the past month and a half I have been keeping a secret from you, my friends, my readers. He will be in Afghanistan.

~ My heart aches. My head spins. But I know that we all will be okay...just lonely...nervous...and quite possibly a little stressed. I had hoped he would have gone to Haiti like he was told so we may get out of the Afghanistan portion. Looks like the man upstairs had a different plan...

~ We watched It's Complicated on Friday nite. Loved it--it was my type of movie...and I seriously want to open a bakery like hers. The atmosphere, the kitchen, the decor. Loved it all.

~ On Saturday nite we watched Matilda and I drank my new favorite beverage Honey Moon. It was a perfect nite with the perfect people.

~ I'm reading an amazing, amazing book right now. I'll be doing a review on it Monday nite. I've been a little MIA because I literally do not want to put it down--it's seriously that good.

~ We're either having a garage sale or painting next weekend. The insane part of my brain is telling me to do both. My logical husband is telling me no--pick one.

I puffy heart fall, too, but mostly just for the chance to open up all the windows when I clean. :-)

I'm sorry about your hubby being gone. :-( You will be in my prayers and my thoughts and can have a virtual hug from me any time! <3

Chelle, I can't believe that we had no idea Leo was headed to Afghanistan. My thoughts will certainly be with your family!

XOXOXO

Wow, you think like me. My mind is always going. Coming up with ideas & to do lists etc.. That's why I'm up at 6am cause I can't sleep cause I have so much to do.

Kmama said...

Ohh, I love Fall too!!

I'm so sorry to hear that Leo has to go to Afghanistan! I'm sure that will be a trying time...but you'll all make it through!

Mellisa Rock said...

Sorry to hear about Hubby - You girls will be great but so sad to know that he is leaving for so long...

Fall is my favorite time of the year - I am already thinking about stuffing some scarecrows for the porch...lol.

Leo will be in our prayers. I too love fall. I can't wait!!!

Llama said...

Hey girlie...im so sorry that Leo has to leave. Im sure you are a world of different emotions. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

I cant wait to hear what you are reading. My past few reads have been rather disappointing...

I KNOW what you mean about fall...at the same time though...im enjoying the summer as much as i can!

Matilda is one of my most favorite movies(and books) i love it, always puts me in a good mood. I think every teacher should be a Miss Honey!

Jenny said...

so sorry about leo! you all will be in my thoughts and prayers as he heads over there.

can't wait to hear about your book!

I can't believe you're not sneaking the title of that book to us. I'm DYING to know what it is!

Honey B. said...

I'm so sorry Leo is leaving... :-(

We watched Its Complicated the other night, I haven't laughed that hard in forever! Such a good movie...

KLZ said...

That's rough news. You're in our thoughts...and when he gets vack let's all open that bakery and make homemade lavender ice cream.

I can't believe July is here either! Seriously, where the hell did this year go?! It needs to slow down asap! *lol*

I'm the same way about fall, but moreso with winter. I can't wait for Christmas every year - probably why I pulled out the Christmas tree on Halloween night and had it up that week. *lol* It'll happen again this year for sure.

I hope Leo doesn't have to go to Afghanistan - I'll be praying everything works out!
