Prayer Request

Tonight, I'm asking for prayer for my Dad and his girlfriend's family.

                                    My Dad and I at a Halloween Benefit Dance to help fund Medical Costs

Last year on Father's Day, my Dad was on his Harley with his girlfriend in NJ heading to NY on vacation. He was hit by a drunk driver on a Suzuki bike going over 100 mph and driving on a suspended license. Both my Dad and Nicole were thrown from the bike. Nicole was thrown into the center lane of traffic and couldn't move due to the extent of her injuries. Tragically, she was then run over by a car and killed.

My dad barely escaped death and nearly lost his leg. He will probably need assistance to walk for the rest of his life.

My Dad called Nicole the love of his life. I've never seen him happier than I did with her. Having to tell him, in the hospital, that she passed was the hardest moment in my 25 years of life. Tomorrow is her birthday.

 It is very sad as we just celebrated Valentine's Day without her, and now to have her Birthday come's just very hard. She leaves behind many loving friends and family members including a daughter still in high school.

If you could please keep my Dad and Nicole's families in your prayers tonight and tomorrow, I would be eternally grateful. Thank you so very much.

                                      Dad and Nicole <3 Heaven gained a wonderful Angel.

11 Followers! Wahoo!

I'm so excited to have more followers. It means a lot to me! Hopefully I can stay good on my promise to keep blogging!

I hope everyone is having a joyous valentines day!  I used to hate this holiday...being broken up with on Valentine's Day several years ago kind of cemented that lol.

But then, I met Nick. And he changed my entire outlook. Our first Valentine's Day he took me to a very nice restaurant that had vallet parking and all, and we had a great dinner. He also gave me beautiful cards and flowers.

Our second Valentine's Day, we got engaged! You can read more about our proposal story on our wedding website here:
Feel free to sign our guest book!!!

This valentine's day, we spent it at the house, just spending time together as a couple!
We made dinner together: Chicken Parmesan and a Huge fresh Garden Salad. Then we watched movies, had a few drinks and ate some ice cream!
I got Nick some cards, Little Big Planet 2 and the new Trace Adkins CD.
Nick got me dinner and ice cream, Mudslides, Wine, and a beautiful flower Arrangement that arrived today!

Its been a really long time...

I really want to get into blogging more...I want to have interesting things to say and to post about!

I want people to be able to enjoy what I write lol! I don't have any more poems or anything to post like I did in the beginning...but I think I may be able to start posting recipes because I love to bake and cook.

                                                     A cake I made Nick's Mom for her Birthday

I will do a huge post when I finally can, about the wedding. After I step back and see what was spent where. Hopefully I will be able to post lots of pictures too!

                                                  My hair and make up after a Hair and Make Up Wedding Trial

I have decided I'm going to make my blog public. This is a scary thought for me, as many people still do not know about my pregnancy and subsequent miscarriage. But, this is my outlet, and I'm finally kind of past the point where I blog about that so much. Do I still miss my baby? Yes. Every day.

But I want this blog to have followers. I want people to read it and I want people to enjoy it. So, I have decided to try and blog every day...and even join in on blog hops when I see them, now that the blog is no longer private.

If you are a reader, old or new, welcome!! So glad to have you. If you are my friend on facebook, please keep what you read her private. Feel free to post any comments or questions you have here, I promise I will answer them.

Anyone out there that is really good at blogging feel free to help me get started and become a better blogger!!! Please!!!!
