When You Go Through Deep Waters, I Will Be With You

When You Go Through Deep Waters, I Will Be With You

Good morning, Friends! Today we awoke to the news of so many more of our sweet friends, followers, and family members homes either about to flood, or having already been flooded.

We are okay here, but homes only a few roads down from us are flooded. We are praying that it does not reach us, but the water is still rising, and expected to do so for the next 12-18 hours. Our property has never flooded in the past, but with this record breaking flooding that we are currently experiencing in our area, it isn’t looking so good. Although, we are hoping the water will recede, and we will not flood. Continue reading

Record Flooding Here In Louisiana

Record Flooding Here In Louisiana

For those of you who may not know, we are currently experiencing record flooding here in Louisiana. This weather has been some of the worst that we have seen in our parts in quite some time.

But since we have been so busy going back and forth to the hospital this past week with Patrick, I never even paid attention to some important little things around the house that I really should have in order to prepare for this weather….

Look Who Had Some Excited Visitors…

Look Who Had Some Excited Visitors…

Someone had some very EXCITED visitors yesterday! The kiddos were CHOMPING AT THE BIT to get up to the hospital to see their daddy. They stayed as close as they could to him… Ehmmm… right on top of him, the whole time. He was happy to see them too, and did’t mind one bit!

It is very rare that Patrick is ever away from us, so his presence has definitely been felt over the past few days. He has been doing well and feeling better everyday, and is responding well to the new heart medication. I am happy to announce that he will be able to come home tomorrow! YAY! 😉

Thanks again for all of the PRAYERS, ENCOURAGEMENT, and SUPPORT! We truly appreciate all of you! <3

Happy 12th Anniversary #1

Happy 12th Anniversary #1

Happy Anniversary #1 to my BFF! This pic was taken about a year ago, but these fun little mugs speak volumes about our marriage and relationship:
 
A. We both love bacon and eggs
B. We both love coffee and drinking out of matching mugs
C. We would never intentionally break each others hearts… no matter what
D. And just like real bacon and eggs stick to your thighs when you eat them, we are always going to stick together
 
Today marks 12 years that we have been married, and I couldn’t imagine spending like with anyone else. Tue love is all about having fun and enjoying life together. The good and the bad, it’s ALL WORTH IT! <3
 
P.S.: For those of you wondering what I meant by anniversary #1, you can find out all about our story HERE.
Do What You Love

Do What You Love

Ain’t that the TRUTH! 😉

We love getting to have our babies help up in the shop… supervised, of course! They get to learn so many awesome things from watching us build, repair, refinish, and up-cycle. And they are so PROUD of themselves when they get to see the finished product that they were able to help with.

At the end of the day, it is all about family and doing what God specifically CREATED you to do! As they say… “If you do what you love, you will never work a day in your life.”

(P.S. For our lawyers and doctors out there.. we love ya too!”)

For all of our sweet followers who have been asking about Patrick’s health, and anxiously awaiting the arrival of his appointment with the electrophysiologist along with us, here is our update as of yesterday….Continue reading

Hello Sunshine!

Hello Sunshine!

After a rather GLOOMY day yesterday, we woke up to this BEAUTIFUL sight! 🙂

The sun is SHINING, the birds are SINGING, and the high today is a TOASTY 68 degrees! And not to mention… there isn’t a single cloud in the sky! It is definitely a GOOD DAY to have a good day, if you ask us!

Hopefully WINTER won’t try to make any more attempts to try to get us down again. We are so ready for SPRING. Who else is with us?

Our Top 10 Ways To Beat Those Winter Blues

Our Top 10 Ways To Beat Those Winter Blues

After having a few weeks of warm weather, we woke up this morning to some very unexpected COLD, GLOOMY weather. Ever since then, I have been feeling kind of down, and unable to shake these WINTER BLUES. Up until today, I had high hopes that this cold weather was behind us, and have been excitedly looking forward to Spring. But today really knocked the wind right out of my sails. 

It comes as no surprise that most people feel down or depressed during the winter months, and it is actually a very common problem that affects a large number of people. It is called Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). If you think about it, most people are stuck indoors during the winter months trying to stay hidden from the wintery, gloomy, overcast weather outdoors. And we all know that when we are trapped indoors for long periods of time, we aren’t able to get much needed fresh air, sunlight, and social interaction. All of which are essential to a happy, healthy lifestyle.

Well, if you are like us….trying to fight the winter blues, we have a few solutions to help brighten your moon, and get you back on track! Here are some of our top tips for a better, and maybe even enjoyable winter for you and your entire family!Continue reading
