This is super sappy, but I just love this song. I love Ben Rector. I love this song. That is all.
Exciting news today. I visited a new doctor today who approved me for a toe off afo. This means I will be shedding my huge leg brace and horrible boot and will be graduating to this streamline contraption which will allow me to again wear pants and a shoe of my right foot. Not cute shoes. But…at this point who cares. Pants are a big deal. I haven’t worn jeans since April! I get fitted next week probably so I’ll give more info then. This is a picture of something similar to what I will be getting. I’ll be sure to put up a picture once I actually get it!
I love this girl and her outlook on many different things. This post is awesome. Instead of focusing on who is single or not, lets just do life together. “Let’s journey together whatever phase of life that may be.”
I had planned on blogging about my awesome canning experience and showing off pictures from our garden harvest, but that was an epic fail. So instead, I’ll share on a topic I am familiar with. SINGLENESS. There, I said it.
One thing I appreciated (among many) about my life in PA was that there were many people who where in the same phase as life I was and many friends who I could relate to and commiserate with. Many in my church also supported me and invited me to be part of their families. However, in the heartland, I find, well many people marry their high school sweetheart at a ripe young age and off they go… Which honestly warms my heart and is indeed lovely.
Since the culture is a tad bit different here than on the east coast, I have found myself in more awkward, and sometimes humorous…

One week from tomorrow, amidst the cheers of hundreds of people, my good friend Lindsay will be running the Rochester Marathon to support our family. While I was in the hospital Lindsay visited me often. She brought me Thai food, watched movies with me, brought nail polish and even brought the kiddos that she nannies for so I could have some entertainment. She has been a great friend and a huge support throughout these past few months. I love her SO much!
Sunday September 22 at 7:30am we will be there cheering her on. Pretty sure I’ll be doing the last mile with her in my wheel chair. Haven’t figured out the details yet, but I want to cross that finish line with her! If you’re in the Rochester area you should come out and support the runners!
