This Is My Life

I never dreamed my life would be what it is. If you would have asked me 15 years ago about all the little things that make our family quirky I would have said, "No way!" But this is my life, and I LOVE it (most every day).

We are thrift store junkies. It's a thrill for us to find awesome deals on things we need and even some things we don't. Just this week my love bought a set of golf clubs for $20. They are a nice set that normally would cost a couple hundred dollars. He is so excited to not have to borrow clubs anymore when he wants to play. He's come a long way in 15 years. Walking into a resale shop 15 years ago for him was unheard of and if you did get him in he started itching all over. Oh the tricks our minds play.

We have a love that just came about in the last couple of years. We have 36 babies that we love. They come in the form of 34 hens and 2 roosters. I never dreamed I would have to say, "Take the chicken outside. Or quit kissing the chicken." And oh for my love who was a pure bred city boy...well things have changed. Goodbye Seattle. Hello Small Town Arkansas! I must also mention that the school mascot where he teaches is none other than...drumroll please...a Hillbilly.

That's just a few of the things neither of us would have ever thought would be happening in our lives. But this is our life and we love it. How is yours different than you expected?
