New Jersey- it keeps gettin better

After a long moment of being away, I am BACK. I am absolutely positive everyone missed me. :)

I took a vacation with BooBoo. We went back to her home town; Long Branch, New Jersey. Let me tell you I have never had so much fun. I never wanted to come home. Of course I know living there would probably be such a different story, but it seemed to have everything and was so close to big cities.. and a B-E-A-C-H. Plus I love her family. Being around them made me feel a lil more complete i suppose. I met some pretty amazing people, seen some amazing things, and had an incredible time. This girl couldn't have asked for anything else.

Here is a lil' humorous story that I will share with you. On the morning before my birthday BooBoo's baby decides to come in the room a lil early to give us what you could say a wake-up call. Her hands are covered in what I thought to be plant dirt because she had been notorious for digging in the plants on earlier occasions.. So non-chalantly that's what I claim it to be. But the closer I look the more I realize it doesn't smell so right.. URGH!! yes you guessed it, she had decided to go diaper exploring and came to let us know she didn't quite like what she found.. So we through her in the bath to bathe her. Throughout the rest of the day it was pretty normal. In the evening BooBoo and her momma went to go buy a cake for miss Janelle (so I thought) and they returned singing "Happy Birthday" to her and I, since her birthday was the 6th and mine the 8th. It was awesome, it really made me feel like family and I will forever appreciate that gesture. They gave us gifts.. mine was gold earrings. Which I am in love with.. I needed some. Anyways we are sitting down enjoying ice cream cake when the stinking dog decided to go potty. The dog (Paris) is still a puppy and doesn't understand that you have to wait until you are completely done going to the restroom before you decide to run around. Needless to say it was another nasty disaster. Here is the kicker BooBoo's brother commented on the day saying "It's been a pretty shitty day. Excuse the french but it's not funny unless it's said. So there you have it.. birthday surprise. :)

I am in all honestly ready to head back there. No joke. But I know I will visit again.. New Jersey you will forever be in my heart.. ( yes I am a cheese ball )

Life, its been quite the journey. As much as I've wanted to get back at this again, I have also been avoiding it. There has just been so much that has happened from my time in North Carolina until now. This is somewhat of a recap I suppose. I left NC with a lot of unwanted baggage. I say this in the most metaphorical way possible.
As most of you all know. I was married to a marine and we lived out in Camp Lejeune. It was a pretty awesome stay as far as the friends and opportunities I had.  Unfortunately it was short lived due to my ex-husband not being a very nice person and to some of the PTSD he suffered from that went untreated. Basically the relationship was toxic and abusive. So much so that I lost a lot of who I was in always being on the defensive and sticking up for myself. I'm not saying that is was all his fault. Just as in any relationship, both parties are responsible for nurturing or poisoning. So here I am almost 5 years later living my life and loving it.

Public Declaration; I NO longer believe in falling/being in love: As I was walking to work this morning I was convicted and reproved for ignorantly believing that I could "fall in love". Love is NOT something you fall into; this pulsing truth wouldn't silence. Now, you can imagine how I felt as the conviction in my heart arose; slightly defensive because certainly I've been defining love properly, right? So, I decided that it was my responsibility to pierce into the Word of my Father, and search to see if this concept of "falling in love" or "being in love" is something that I should indeed attach my life to. Now, it was to my surprise that this concept of emotional intoxication that motivates the lips to part and the tongue to say "I'm in love" is NOWHERE to be found! In fact, as I dug into research I found that this concept; the one I've been guilty of co-signing my name to, is nothing more than lust. Lust is built on what the …
