I accidentally went out with a married man.

I've made a conscious effort to date more this year - -and I have gone out more in the last 2 months than I have in the last 6 years. . . But I did have my first experience dating a married man.
It was an accident.
I didn't know he was married.
He lied. Repeatedly.
Thankfully, we happened to have a mutual friend who informed me that he was, in fact, married.
Clearly, we haven't talked since.

Long time. . .

It's been almost 5 months since I've posted anything.
Things are going well, I suppose.
Jacob has started 4 grade, and is loving it.
I am still working at Vann's Auto-Mart and making cakes rather frequently for friends, family, and even strangers. :)

I love being inspired by beautiful pictures - and wish I felt it within myself to create/post inspiring things myself.

For a little while, I thought I would be moving to Tennessee, but that didn't come together like I thought it would. I'm ok with that.

Still hoping to find out what life has in store for me, but realizing that it's pretty much up to me to MAKE something happen.

SPRING and changes and amazingness

For the first time ever, I am planting a garden. Outside, in pots, I have broccoli plants that I purchased already started. I have a pot with a seed potato in it. I am SOOOO excited that its sprout finally pushed through the surface. INSIDE, I have plants that I started from seeds myself. I have squash, carrots, and cucumbers. I'm very proud of them. :)
I am working at a car lot - - and I'm actually really enjoying it, even though I NEVER would have pursued it. It was literally handed to me, and I needed more money, so I took the offer. I'm learning a lot and meeting a lot of people that I would never have met otherwise. 

I'm highly considering homeschooling Jacob next year. More on that later.

I'm also extremely interested in midwifery - - the all-natural, in home birth genre of midwifery. I REALLY want to find a certified-practicing one that would allow me to attend a birth with her in order to find out if that is a field that I would truly enjoy working/experiencing life in. I've watched several documentaries recently that have very much made me an advocates for women's and infant's right to having the best possible birth experience, which very well may NOT be in a hospital setting with unnecessary interventions. 
"Pregnant in America" and "The Business of Being Born" were both very . . . significant to me.

A friend of mine from high school, Erin, had an unplanned totally unassisted homebirth a few years ago, and her story of it is very inspiring. I was going to link to her story, but that's not working out.

And now - a few more plant pictures!
