Wow! Has it really been OVER TWO years since I last visited my poor, lil' blog?  SO much has happened in my life that had changed my life permanently. Some good...some really, really bad. If I'm not careful, this could turn into a memorial blog! Ugh!

Let's start with the good in no random order all over the place!

Molly-Mae is an absolute blessing in our lives. She has quickly become Hendrix's sister & BFF. She was a rescue from the Harnett County Shelter....her "day" was the very next day after a friend of my sister's went and grabbed Molly-Mae and her brother out of there! Lisel saved their lives, no doubt!

Hendrix is doing great! Only I would have a pup with OCD!  The Prozac has worked wonders and life is good again! lol Go figure! He is my boy! 

Rich got another baby to love on. His best friend & his fiancee had Desmond a few months back. Sometimes I feel guilty because of how much he LOVES babies and kids and he never had the chance to be a dad...other than Dad #2 to Taylor and a furrydaddy to the babies. He really would have been an amazing one.

Rich & I had a good time this past Halloween being big kids! His was an 80s Rocker & I was his Groupie!

I donated 21 inches of my hair to Wigs for Kids in Memory of my Taylor. 

I was challenged by a friend of Facebook to post 5 photos that make me feel beautiful. The 5 I chose didn't necessarily highlight my "best" outer beauty, but to me, they represent the most beautiful things about my life: passionate love, great friends, inner peace and success/intellect/education.

Now for the not-so-good.

Presley Shane Passed away in March 2013 after a super quick illness. He was a tough little guy who didn't show pain. As soon as he started showing outward signs, we rushed him to the Vet and it was already too late. The doc thinks it was a tumor. He is missed so, so much by mom & dad, but even more so by his brother, Hendrix. 

In April, 2013, I held my beautiful, courageous, and very sick niece's hand as she left this world at age 17. Taylor was more like a daughter to me than a niece. She was also my best friend. She and I did everything together. Rich and I were talking and EVERY memory we have involves her in some fashion. I will be writing a separate post to not only explain what happened in or to raise awareness of proper blood collection procedures, but also to introduce to the amazing young lady. She will always, always have half of my heart. I am truly an incomplete person now. I have never felt this hollow and empty in my life. 

Taylor - Before her illness.
Taylor & Uncle Rich - the night she earned her Gold Belt.

Taylor & me when she was in the hospital.
Taylor & Mr. Williams - Earning her Black Belt 6 days before she died

I am going to try my best to breath some life back into this blog. I hope you will come along for the ride.
