Quick Takes!

--- 1 ---

We went to a friend's wedding on the feast of the Immaculate Conception! It was beautiful and a blessing to witness their sacrament. Speaking of weddings a dear friend of mine recently got engaged. I am so excited for her and her fiancé. The woman who got married and the woman who got engaged were both in our wedding, so I am especially happy for them both.

I finally have my 12 clients I need to have my supervisor visit which will hopefully happen in Jan. or Feb. Most of my appointments have been cancelled lately because my clients have been sick or one was actually stuck in MN because of the snow storm. I did that individual intro. last week and the couple was awesome. I can't wait to work with them!

I have been spending my time decorating, crafting and organizing for our Christmas festivities. When we were decorating the tree on Sunday I got a little sad, JJ asked me what was wrong and I told him that I wish Cecilia was here to experience this. This time of year is bitter sweet.

The anticipation of Christmas has been stress free in our home since we are not doing gifts. I have been enjoying my time with JJ watching cheesy Christmas movies, drinking hot tea/decaf organic coffee(which I am allowed to drink now, in small amounts), and doing our family prayer while lighting the advent candles as we sing. Yeah, JJ and I love to sing, we harmonize quite well together.

Here comes the TMI. This cycle was weird, my cm was less than what it normally is, which worries me. I hope it was just fluke if not this will be another obstacle we face as we TTC. We go back to our NaPro Dr. today so I am sure she will have something to say about it.

This weekend we are going down to San Diego! We are seeing our Dr. Fri. Saturday we will have the honor of being at one of our closest friends Solemn Vows for the Augustinian order! He will be doing his solemn vows on our 5 year anniversary, which is awesome! At our wedding he presented us with a papal blessing that he went through the trouble of getting. He is so special to both JJ and I, he is more like family especially to JJ. He and JJ almost started their own hip-hop group and collaborate on some songs. He also gave me a beautiful pep talk/mini-sermon as my friend was doing my make-up on my wedding day. So we are really excited for his solemn vows! Then on Sunday we will head home and attend a Christmas party Sunday evening. So this weekend will be full!

Saturday is our 5 year wedding anniversary! I can't believe it's been 5 years, but I also feel like we have been married for a long time because we are so close. I guess tragedy can really bring you closer together, JJ truly is the other half of my soul. It is going to take a lifetime to express my gratitude toward God for bringing us together and to JJ for pursuing me. I did not make it easy for JJ to court me and God did not make it easy for us to get together. I am so glad we fought for us from the very beginning and we did not run away at the first sign of adversity. I guess it prepared us for IF.  Here are my anniversary flowers JJ brought home for me today, a couple of days early.
Have a great weekend everyone!
