Has it really been April since I last posted? No posts in May or June...whoa! Life gets in the way so easily. And in the last few months, much has happened at our pod and in the lives of our loved ones.
Here are the highlights:
My littlest brother and my mom came to visit us in May. It was only for 5 short days, but it was amazing to spend time with them and show them why we love it here so much. It made me appreciate my family that much more.
June was pretty quiet. Hubby is still in it to win it with HFD. He's been working his butt off and come November, we'll be celebrating like it's 1999... oh, wait... haha.
July is only halfway through and it's already shaped up to be a great month. It marks a year since the left side of this picture was taken. I called this pic, "Same shorts, more room." The hubs has been keeping me accountable with my health and fitness and I'm so glad he does. I know I hate going to workout, but I do feel better and more accomplished afterwards. I haven't really weighed myself, but I love the fact that my clothes fit better and are getting looser. I just want to be healthier and I'm on my way.
This little guy made his world premier on Monday, July, 9. Meet our adorable nephew! I just want to love up on this little buddy, but he's all the way in Pittsburgh. [sad face] I don't know when we'll be able to meet him in person, but it's going to be a love and happy crying fest when it comes.
July--actually in the next few days!--is going to be filled with important milestones. I've felt God working in my heart for a while now and I know I've already chosen to live my life as He leads me. So tomorrow I'm getting baptized. Not just water sprinkled on my head and blessings, but full on getting dunked and coming out anew. I'm so excited and I'm thankful that He has given the hubs and I a small community of loved ones here in Hawaii to come out and support me. So. Stoked.
Then on Tuesday. Well, Tuesday marks the third anniversary of the greatest day ever. I'm just sayin'. =)
