Day 14-A picture you love

To you. this is an ordinary wild flower. ¬†To me, this is a picture of a flower Hunny sent me from one of the hikes he went on in the mountains surrounding Reno. It was sent to me before I moved here, when I was still having doubts about the move, and it meant so much to me that it triggered a whole other argument all together. But now, I can sit and look at it, it’s simplicity shows the uncontainable kindness in my hunny’s heart.

Time Bomb – Part 1

So, a little recap of my 2010…

In March I realized that I was married to a wonderful man, but that marriage¬†wasn’t right for either of us. He deserves someone who can’t live without him, and knows with her whole heart she is madly in love with him. I, unfortunately, was neither of those things. I asked for a divorce. He kept the house, my cat, all the furniture, and the list goes on. He kept ‘my’ car, we sold his car, bought and used that money to buy me an SUV. Our divorce was final August 2nd.
