One Year | This Week - Happenings

Hullo, y'all.  :]

As it was Columbus Day weekend, and my hubby and I had been out of town until late last night, I [obviously] have no Name post for you this week.  But, I promise, it will return next week!

Instead, I just wanted to share this little post as an update and to letcha know what's going on in my little corner of the world.

In a day or so, I will have a book review for you, and within the next couple weeks, I plan to share the beginning of my NaNoWriMo journey.  O_O  Ahh!! YES.  I signed up this year.  My fingers just. . . did it.  I had no control and now I'm officially FREAKING OUT.  Buuuuuuuut. . . thanks to my dear writerly friend and genius, Lauri (aka Christine) from the amazing and incredible blog, Musings of an Elf, I think I will make it.  :]

Is there anyone else here in the bloggy world who just signed up for their first NaNo also?

On another note, last Sunday, Evan and I celebrated our one year wedding anniversary!  It's hard to believe we have now been married for one. whole. YEAR.  And it's been AMAZING.  I just wish I could sit down with every single young lady in this world and tell them how beautiful and glorious and rewarding it is to WAIT for marriage.  And to encourage and uplift them, to tell them that God loves them more fully than any man ever could, and that if they simply trust in Him, He will bring about a godly, upright man that will sweep them off their feet and together they will begin the sacred journey of marriage.

God has been so good to me.  I am so undeserving!

I mean, look!  Look at this handsome man He's blessed me with for my lifetime here on this earth:

I am blessed beyond measure.  And it's my wish that I will be a good and godly example of a lady who waited.  :]

It's so worth it!  You gain a husband and a best friend for life, y'all.

Okay, okay, I'll stop gushing now. . .  NOT. 

{Btw, in case you are wondering why we're holding a teensy knot, we tied a new knot to add to our wedding-day shadowbox.  Planning to do that every year!}

To each is given a bag of tools,
A shapeless mass, and a book of rules,
And each must make, ere life is flown,
A stumbling block or a stepping stone.
