happy thanksgiving eve

Happy Thanksgiving Eve, friends!

We’ll be celebrating our first married thanksgiving in Hampstead tomorrow!  When G first mentioned the idea of staying here instead of traveling to see family, I was a little skeptical but open to the idea. Now I’m really excited to spend this holiday with just the two of us.  It’s fun to create memories and traditions and I’m thinking tomorrow will be full of both {eh-hem… any tips for making an apple pie?:)}.

We’ll also be finishing up our “be thankful” banner we’ve been adding to this month.  While rather elementary in looks, to be reminded of all that we have has been a good practice for me and hopefully for G too.

Be Thankful

How are you celebrating?

During Our Marriage

in sickness and in health

So remember a couple of weeks ago when I wrote a note to my mr. and thanked him for putting up with my whining while I was sick?  And then I told you about my visit to the doctor before the marine ball?

Well I finally got an answer for my unexplained yuck after I went back to the doctor with an earache last week.  After some more bloodwork the nurse said I should probably come back and talk to the doctor.

Because I had MONO. 

Happy holidays and moving to us! {I say “us” because there may have been some germs/drinks/kisses shared over the last month.} Thankfully, I think the worst is over.  My energy level is still lower than normal, but I can handle that over headaches/fever/earaches.

As for G*, he’s yet to have any of my symptoms {whewwwww!}.

*But watch your back, Atwell, one wrong move and I may get generous!  And on that note, want to watch Pride & Prejudice {again} tonight? I promise to make you some more of my special brownies!

I’m grateful that the Lord has allowed me to walk down this path of marriage with my best friend.

Here’s to being newlyweds forever!
