Spring Is Here!

It is rainy and windy today, with some of the trees starting to bud and flowers peeking their head out of the ground. Ahhh the first signs of spring are here!

I have not been blogging since I have been dealing with alot of stress, anxiety and depression as of late. For the time being I have quite school as it was just to much on my plate and it overwhelmed me considerably.

My husband and I have been doing a lot of talking and thinking about what is the best direction for our marriage, life and living situation to not only help ease the stress and anxiety that I am feeling, also what will help us financially for our future.

Let me share a little secret with you that not many people know........
We are currently in the process of trying to purchase a house! It is NOT in the city which we are both thrilled about and the house is 100years old which we love.
Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers that everything continues to go well with the process. Here is a sneak peek of the front of the house.

It needs a little work on the inside and out, but we are excited to make it our own while keep all of its charm and character.

I have been craving Oreos for weeks now. So I finally decided to splurge and buy some.
I made this rich but very yummy, super easy, no bake cheese cake.
I would have taken a photo of the one I made by it vanished before I could. :)
