Now is a good time

Updated August 5, 2013. I'm now comfortable saying "we".

Legislative session....grant season...romance.

This is probably the most uncomfortable thing for me to talk about.  I have it all together as a mother, executive, entrepreneur, friend....but allowing myself to be giddy over romance has not been something I've seen in a few years.

Last week I worked and played in Santa Fe and I decided now was a good time to open my heart to a little romance.

I We stayed at a super cute casita in downtown Santa Fe, called the Zona Rosa, and enjoyed sensations like brie cheese, fig butter, and wine.  I We lunched over chile rubbed bacon and green chile cornbread.  I We sipped on red wine at St. Clair's and I enjoyed duck for the very first time at Vernon's Hiden Valley Steakhouse.  My senses, and my heart, were extremely full.

I We stayed at Hotel Andaluz for the very first time too.  This is by far my new favorite hotel in Albuquerque.

A bond is not formed by the amount of time two people spend together, but rather by the experiences that are shared together.

A Help Meet

I write this post after much prayer and consideration about whether now is the time for me to say this.  I came across the above picture on instagram one day, and it caused my spirit to leap.  I have shared with you here my journey of going through a divorce, the challenges I have faced, my time of singlehood while healing.

I have entered a new season.  A season of studying on what it means to be a good wife.  Not just a wife by name because one wears a ring and is married to her husband, but a wife that God created us to be.  The help meet He introduced to Adam in Genesis 2.  The companion that is not just along for the ride, but the one who truly makes her husband's life better.

When I saw this picture, it personified everything I've been studying about and praying for.  To be the kind of woman who, when I'm blessed with the opportunity to be a wife again, does not just go along for the ride....but is active in keeping our marriage firmly rooted in the Word so that it c…

CVS Game

I'm back in the game ya'll!  Back in the day when Dave and I were newlyweds and had just bought our first house, I started playing the CVS coupon game.  I was able to stock up so much that I remember coming back a year later after moving back to New Mexico and Dave still had not had to buy toilet paper!
I haven't played in a very long time because coupling takes time. Recently, I came across this great Youtube channel and it seriously inspired me to jump back in. Right now I'm only dealing with CVS, I haven't bothered to begin planning for other shopping trips.
Jumping back in hasn't been with out flaws. Last week I watched Toni's video spent Friday night printing and clipping coupons, made my list, thought I had a plan, and then woke up Saturday morning ready to go. Something didn't work just right because I ended up spending about $120 out of pocket. I did save like $50 and the good news is I earned $15 in Extra Care Bucks (ECB). So this week I was r…
