this is where i share my whole soul. i write about my struggles. my joys. my amazing life with my handsome husband. our photography company. our cat. wedding seasons. our travels. community. beer and coffee dates. probably lots about pizza, too. i believe that life is worth living. and sharing my story connects me to beautiful souls. i feel like i grow into a better human when i write and read stories. we all have something amazing to share with the world. this is my life in pink. 

there's almost nothing i enjoy more than a gorgeous day in the park, skinny jeans, and adorable flats. tuesday's are quickly becoming my favorite day of the week. the only thing that would make this better is if my husband was by my side. (but someone has to bring home the organic bacon)
tuesdays i have physical therapy at carle in urbana. i absolutely love my physical therapy because it's the only thing in over 11 years that is starting to improve my quality of life. i still hurt every day but i have hope that eventually i will be pain free. even if it takes me another year. *sigh* :)

so. before therapy. i ventured to a nearby park to enjoy God's delicious creation. i had 40 minutes before my therapy session so i read my Bible and i took photographs. i very much enjoy taking pictures. i shoot with canon because it's what i learned on. i only shoot in manual, in RAW, and i love natural light. i am learning to edit and oh what fun it is!

i also enjoy coffee. however, with my headaches i have to limit myself and be very careful as to how much i have and when i have it. some days i try to act "normal" (whatever that means) and i have coffee with refined sugar and it's a nightmare for the next few days. today, however, was a perfect mcdonald's caramel frappe day and i was very happy to drink it. after therapy i went shopping at bed bath and beyond which is another nightmare in my opinion. so i darted to the first worker i could find to help me. dan was really nice. i told him my budget and that i needed to get two bridal shower gifts and i am not interested in looking at the tiny numbers on the registry and then daring to locate them in this jynormous store so please find these things for me. bam - he did it. and i stayed 6 dollars under budget. score. i hate huge stores. they scare me. and i think their prices are upsetting. i am not interested in paying "full price" for something that is just as good at a cheaper price. call me cheap. i wear the name proudly. :)
after lunch (chicken caesar sandwich from paneara bread - thankfully they have antibiotic free chicken) i headed to meijer. my very favorite place for produce. nom nom nom. i loaded up on fruits and veggies and headed home.
i started to make bread and realized that i was almost out of all purpose flour. so i just added more wheat flour. made sense at the time. that darn dough. or lack of dough i should say! it still turned out.. bread - ish. we'll eat it anyways and i'll get more all purpose for next time. live and learn :) thankfully i have a husband who will eat anything i make, he's sweet like that.
we had a fun night too! grilled organic hot dogs (which is another story altogether) and watched a will ferrell movie. totally good night.
today - wednesday, i go for injections at carle. i may or may not get them. i'll write about injections another time.
