still here!

Why hello there.  It has been a while.  I find myself continuing to adjust to the responsibilities involved with being a wife, teacher, and most importantly a daughter of the king.  I do not work that many hours, yet, I still feel like I am home so little.  I love keeping our home and taking care of my husband, but at times, I find it difficult to balance it all.  My husband has been gracious and patient with me, as I am slow to learn.  I am thankful for how he helps.  I can honestly say he does the lion's share of the dishes for our family.  This is a huge help!

I mainly blog this post to give you a heads up that I have not left.  I am still here, and in fact have a few posts in the workings, so stay tuned!  To peak your interest, here a few that you can look forward to...

1. I have transitioned into my new job for the school year.  My title of Mrs. Miller will never grow old.  I love being a teacher.

2.  My husband had a birthday on Wednesday, and we are still celebrating.

3.  I am thankful to be involved in a Bible study for young wives.  We are studying David Platt's book Follow Me.  This has challenged me in so many ways, and I can't wait to share with you some of these ways.

So...don't lose hope.  I will be back, and there will be exciting posts to come!

Happy Anniversary!

 On Saturday, my mister and I had our one year engagement anniversary.  On Sunday, it was our three month wedding anniversary (or as he refers to it as our quarter year anniversary).

To Never Grow Old

I am a newlywed.  More commonly than I should, I hate being called that.  I don't want people to know we just got married in May, but instead for them to think we have been married for a few years.  Another reason I hate people to call me a newlywed is because far too often, I feel belittled by that title.  "Aww, you don't know anything yet." "You just wait, you won't keep that up." "You do that now, but give it time and you won't."  These are the comments that make me hate being called a newlywed.  I never want to grow old to the point that I loose the spark that too many people consider only for newlyweds.

full freezer

My husband and I love blueberries...I mean we love them!  This being said, we were so happy to be able to go to some nearby relatives' home and pick some blueberries.  We figure we picked just shy of four gallons.  We froze the majority of them, but kept some our fresh for enjoyment, and then baked a blueberry streusel pie....together (everything is better when done together).  We also made bo-berry biscuits later on in the week.
