Joy, Joy, Joy!

Lately, the joy in my heart has just been overflowing! It is a crazy feeling to me, being this happy! I am truly blessed and I find myself counting these blessings every day! 

This past weekend was a busy and great one. Keith had his scheduled December Drill on Sat and Sun. Saturday was also his military unit's Christmas Dinner. While I was getting ready my Chi hair straightener died. It was sad but luckily I was finished fixing my hair and was only touching up a few parts. I wanted to check the mail on the way out and was very excited to see that our Christmas cards had come in. Then the joy was put on a halt when Keith asked if I was almost there. His unit is in Morrilton which is an hour away . . . Needless to say I thought it started at 1 and it actually started at noon. I didn't think I was going to make it, but I did! ;-) The dinner was catered and was delicious! I had a great time visiting with the other soldier's who work with Keith. Also, Keith's unit was given dates for their next tour in Afghanistan. It has been pushed back a bit so we will have a little more time as a married couple before he will be away for a year. We came home after the dinner and had a very relaxing evening, just us two!

Sunday was a BIG, BIG day for me! I had received an email last week letting me know that my wedding dress had come in and I could pick it up! So that is exactly what I did. When I put it on this time I was almost in tears. It is MY dress and it fit perfectly other than the length. It is so white and beautiful. I don't know how else to describe it other than PERFECT. (Keith has mentioned that I've been saying perfect a lot lately. Lol) The dress is now hanging in the house and I have to admit that I have unzipped the bag and looked at it about a million times!!! It is such a wonderful addition to my wardrobe! :-) I also bought a new Chi! 

On Monday I sent out our Christmas cards! This is our first year to send out cards and I love the ones we had made with our picture on it! Next weekend we are going shopping to finish up buying presents. It will be a great trip and I'm so looking forward to it!


  1. Congrats Jessica, on all of your happiness! Cherish every moment with that soldier of yours ;)
