2012-2013 The Year of Change

For a regular blogger, this last year held a ton of distractions. It’s easy to see those distractions in my light number of posts.

From filling our empty nest with a teenager and a dog to building a house, it’s been quite the journey. My plan is to blog A LOT more from here on out.

If you follow my Mary Beth Lee profile on Facebook, you’ve seen these photos. If not, I hope you enjoy.

ON Graduation

ON came to live with us Spring Break 2012. She graduated June 1 this year! WOO HOO!!!!

Emmie

Emmie came to live with us last June. I love her like a baby. I’m serious. I’m a dog mom. She’s a rescue. She had a rough life before us. Now she has the easy life. It’s weird because I’d been a cat mom for 18 years and didn’t plan on having a dog. I ❤ Emmie.

Then there’s the house

The slab. We were so freaking excited.

Garage door. This is so funny. We got the WRONG garage door, but we loved it. Cost us $1k, but it was worth it!

Yeah, we still think this is close to done.

  1. I am so happy for you both. As an uncle, thanks for your love for my great-niece, ON. I appreciate all you and DH have done for her. It is so much fun watching you continue to grow as a person. None of us ever arrives. Just keep pressing on.
