Because Life is Good

It's amazing how busy a girl's life can get. I am trying to wrestle enough time out of my day to keep in slight contact with my online and non-online friends, plan wedding, go to camp, clean house and get ready for moving in, work at Pharmasave, play music, figure out my music schedule, etc. I love how I love all the things I do in my life. :-)

But as much as it is great to not be bored, it is also important to spend quiet time, just relaxing. Yesterday Jesse and I drove three of the camp instructors to the airport and and spent the rest of the day in the city, shopping, watching movies and eating. I am trying to conserve money but watching movies for Jesse and me is special. We don't get into the city often so it's a real treat. We watched Captain America and thought it was absolutely brilliant. I love every little thing about it. :-)

I went shoe shopping at Dancer's Den. No such luck. They had really nice shoes but nothing seemed quite right for me... or the occasion. I am really hoping to find something sooner than later. Of course, if all else fails, I can always borrow a pair that I'm trying to base my idea on of perfect wedding shoes. I borrowed them during the "We'll Meet Again" production we did last Fall. They are dancing shoes from the 50's and a nice natural leather. But I would love to find a pair like those for myself!

Anyways. We have a function to attend this evening so I should close this up and get ready to go. :-) I will try to write again and keep you guys updated.

P.S. God has been answering so many prayers. Thank you for all who are praying for us!

sounds like you are plenty busy... praying for you and hope you keep enjoying those relaxing times, there's no need to get rushed and excited over things that can't really be helped and you much spend time with the man you are going to marry.... it's good for both of you. :-)
Love,
Hannah

Whoa... just realized it's been a while since I actually commented... lol Still readin', still readin'~ just not commenting much, it seems. :P

Yeah... it's hard to remember to relax. I always need a reminder. Thanks, Hannah. :)

Bekah, I also haven't been writing as much lately. That could contribute to the fact of you not commenting much. ;)

True... :) I just haven't been online much. :P

It's good to take the time to relax and breathe and just be still.
Getting ready for a wedding and living a "normal" life is difficult to do! :)

Honestly, as much as I'd love to be married or getting married, I'm glad it's not happening this year. My life has been exceptionally busy this year and so many hard things have happened. It's been tough.

I know what you mean, Samantha. It's kind of like my mom having a miscarriage. Yes, we're really sad about it but we're relieved because mom is ok and she doesn't have to go through bed-rest for 9 months. God knows best. When it's time for you to get married, things won't be perfect but the time will be right... correct... and you will know it.

:hugs: May this fall be happier for you, my friend.
