where were you 365 days ago?

I must say one year ago I could have said I would have been a future mrs to the past relationship in my life.. I thought everything was great.. I was wrong..

I've moved on to someone new that I can look back at my past and say is so much better for me.

this past years obstacles, trials, miracles, and even few and far between accomplishments has led to see one of the craziest, most hectic, wonderful, and possibly one of the most satisfyingm rewarding and lifes purpose finding years of my life.

I have learned so many things.. I have failed at some many things.. Accomplished many things. Experienced great things. Observed some of lifes little miracles. And met some of the greatest people in my life.. All within the last 365 days..

Amazing I know.. And for that I am grateful and thankful..

Think about your last year.. Can you say the same thing?

It's seeming complete, even though it has its hasty moments

I haven't blogged in quite sometime, which seems as though I am letting myself down, only because I told myself I would do this regularly as a way to get out what I have to say, since I dont have many around to say it to.

Many things have been happening in my life since I posted last which was several months ago.. How pathetic right?

1.) I have joined a gym and gotten a personal trainer. As many know I have recently (Jan 2008) told myself I was going to kick this lazy Bethani lifestyle out and bring in one that was healthier, more active, and basically just feels better about getting out of bed everyday. In my past, alot of my days were spent fighting with myself to get up and go everyday. But currently I'm down about 40 lbs and feel completely great about myself. Yes I do still have a few problem areas that need attention (thus why I have a trainer,) but with time I know those can be fixed to my liking.

2.) My brother and his wife, Amanda have resolved all of their immature drama issues and are now rekindling what they need to have in order to maintain a healthy and long-lasting marriage. Thank God for that one!

3.) I have move in with my grandparents. Its better for me, my dad and my mom that I did that. We are more at peace now. And knowing I am able to assist my grandparents in small tasks to make their lives a little easier is always humbling..

4.) I met someone. Shocking I know, because I was seriously getting to the point where I was shunning off men and thinking I would never find someone I could truly be happy with. And then he hit (not literally) like a brick wall. He is absolutely amazing and fits in my life like a custom made ball gown. I still remember our first date and how taken aback I was the whole time, thinking how real this could not possibly be.

5.) My baking/cooking clock has been turned on at a high rate of speed. Women always talk about their baby/mommy clocks ticking.. Yea I still have yet to desire that.. *Please note* I have no desire to desore that either. But I currently LOVE cooking and baking and everything to do with the preparation of food. Maybe thats the pre fall in love with boy readiness skills I have beenlacking. I mean I have always been able to cook and bake, but had no want or desire to. Thats different now.

6.) Emilee is walking and has a tooth. Yay.. She's getting to be a big girl so fast..
