Exciting news....

First of all I need to talk about how blessed I have felt lately. Two years ago Bob and I gave up everything to save his life. We didn't have much of anything and was barely able to survive payday to payday. You never imagine that your life can be flipped upside down in the blink of an eye, but really it can, you just NEVER know. Today, we are stronger than ever, we aren't perfect, but we find a way to work everything out. We may not drive a fancy car with leather seats, but it drives and gets us where we need to go. We may not have a $400K house, but our home is beautiful and perfect for us. We are able to give our kids what they need and more. My family is healthy and it feels great, almost too good to be true. At times I find myself wondering why things are so calm. I got so use to the chaos. Yes, Lexi has a umilical hernia (sorry Jen, I forgot to answer you on that), but its an easy fix.

So for the exciting part, Bob and I never got to go on a honeymoon, we never have gotten to travel somewhere that we only dream of in pictures or our minds. I have wanted to go far away for awhile and well we are, in less than 300 days Bob and I are packing our suit cases and heading away on this....


to here....Yes, the Eastern Caribbean, St Thomas, St Martens, San Juan and the Bahamas. I am excited, thrilled and counting down the days already.


I feel like we have worked so hard to be where we are today. I honestly feel so blessed, sometimes I wonder if it is a dream. It has been a rough road, but I wouldn't want it to be any other way. We learned a lot and we are so much better off TODAY then we were a year or two years ago.
