Halloween with Becca

Family, Grief, Happiness, Loss, Love, Sorrow

Winter in Derenemyn

This is the sixth chapter of the as-yet untitled (suggestions welcome) love story that Julienne and I lived. In case this is your first time, a) I’m sorry and b) the other chapters are listed below in case you’d like them in chronological order.

Chapter 1 – Meeting Julienne

Chapter 2 – Finding Julienne

Chapter 3 – A Kiss, and a Confession

Chapter 4 – Of Spaniel Day Lewis, Parents, and Dothraki Love Nests

Chapter 5 – Brioche French Toast

(A brief note before we get started. I indicated in yesterday’s post that the last bunch of days have been very hard. That hasn’t changed. I’m hoping that I can not only write this, but that I can feel a little better by doing so. It may be a fool’s errand on both fronts, but I’m going to try.)

Halloween season, I would come to learn, starts in February…

It Took Chemo To Slow Me Down

Leave The Light On

I have wanted to write. So many ideas have flittered through my head. I desperately try to hold onto the thoughts, so many I believe to be a great blog post. Unfortunately these thoughts come while driving to or from somewhere, in the middle of a project, wherever that is not near my computer to hash out immediately through the keys. So many thoughts lost to my sieve of a short term memory. My memory has never been super spectacular but since chemo brain has started my short term memory has not been great. I have this towering fear envelope me whenever I get a good idea, the fear of losing that thought. It feels like trying to catch a butterfly with a net. Sometimes I get lucky and snare the thought and sometimes it flitters off, maybe to be seen again and maybe not.

There were no grand ideas…

The “about me”.

About me, family, life blog, lifestyle, new blog

Dreaming of calm

Yes, I know its generic and played out but everyone has to do the typical “about me” post and I’m no different.

This is my first time ever doing anything like this and I’m very excited to share the craziness that is my every day life with all of you.

So, I figured we would start off by me telling you guys a little about me and what I would like to do with this blog. I’m a married mother of four (pictured above) trying to survive the day to day shenanigans of my rambunctious children on a day to day basis. So a lot of this blog will be about the daily things we go through. However it will also be fun recipes, some diy tutorials (as they come up), and my journey to attempt to better myself.

This is actually one of the things I am hoping will…

Embracing Bliss

Lifestyle

Hello and welcome! My name is Haley and I’m from Arkansas.I recently started this blog with a different hosting site but decided that I enjoyed the ease of WordPress better. I’ve posted many blog posts today in the process of transferring my other site over to this platform. So today I will tell you a little about myself and why I decided to start the blog Embracing Bliss. I’ve had a blog before, but never really got into it and the format just wasn’t what I wanted. So I decided to start over from scratch!
 
About Me:
I am 24 years old, and I live in Arkansas with my firefighter husband and our four fur children. We have two labs, a great dane, and a cat. Crazy right?! On April 14th of this year we celebrated one year of marriage. I love doing life with my husband!
