This is Fire in our new fireplace! For the past 2 years I've lived in this house, there was an antique (read "unuseable") gas heater and an awful draft to this fireplace. This year, thanks to my husband, I am warm and toasty.
(He, of course, has to sit around in his underwear because the living room is an inferno.)
I am happy. I am strong. I am a mom of 4. I am 43. I am married to my soulmate. I am a Hoosier and a Boilermaker. I hate the cold. I love cookies. I have the same birthday as my husband. I like to read, write, and take pictures. I bring home strays. I crack myself up. I dance with the dog when no one else is home.
“Childhood is what you spend the rest of your life trying to overcome. That's what momma always says. She says that beginnings are scary, endings are usually sad, but it's the middle that counts the most. Try to remember that when you find yourself at a new beginning. Just give hope a chance to float up. And it will, too...” – Birdee Pruitt, Hope Floats
