Casa de Fernandez
I have certainly been out of the blogging game for a minute, but its because I've been overwhelmingly busy. But busy is always good in my book. Busy with work, busy with learning the ropes of what it means to be a wife, and as of recently learning how to be a new homeowner. Super exciting stuff for Will and I. God has continued to bless us this past year. I have witnessed a shift in our daily routine since we have began to seek God more. Now don't kid yourself this Fernandez couple can still hang with the best of them, but we have began to re-prioritize different aspects and things in our lives and this has helped us live a more fulfilling life. With all of this said, we have been busy learning the ins and the outs of home ownership. I have learned just how unattached I am to material items and how Will prefers to hang framed art as a team rather than letting me do it by myself. Will is really amazing at caring for plants and anything green and growing, I'm pretty sure he could grow a garden. (maybe something I should talk him into) I've realized that I'm definitely my grandmother's granddaughter, and my mother's daughter meaning that I absolutely, positively, LOVE making dinner for my Wills and taking care of him in that aspect. And I've also learned that I was also able to talk him into not putting a television in our bedroom because there are way funner things that can happen in a bedroom other than watching t.v.
But then, there's the not so fun things that come with home ownership likkkke, the cleaning of the gutters, the worrying about the water softener, the concerns of the neighbor's pet guinea bird inside your fenced yard with your pet dog, etc.
All in all, we are completely and utterly taken care of by God. And so thankful. We do not take what we have for granted and we continue to pray every day for each other, our family, our friends and our people because we know these are the ones who have supported who we have always been and these are the ones who have believed in us as individuals.
We know that some people look at buying vehicles, homes and other things as not a big deal, but to us, it's something that we always had to work for and it was always something that we would have to reach for, work for and was always in the distance. It's been something that we knew wouldn't come simple or soon for us. I'm SO proud of my husband and how hard he works. I love him more than he can possibly know and cannot wait to fill up our house with babies.... but actually I can, so don't expect me to be writing that I'm pregnant anytime in the near future.
For now, I'm throwing myself into working on myself spiritually and trying to keep myself from getting distracted. (doesn't always come easy for me) With that said, my sister and I have started a bible study that we have been doing on Tuesday evenings around 7:30 p.m. at my house and tonight is the first night at my house, I'm excited/anxious but I know God is in control and he will open the hearts of the women who will be able to attend and we will grow in God together. Other than that, yeah just working on me, my goal is to just kind of work on me, because one day, I do intend to become a mother (God willing) and I would like to have my head on straight by that time. My sister-in-law is getting married next year, along with a couple of other wonderful girlfriends of mine so I'm sure I'll be busy celebrating the beautiful brides over the next year. I hope to keep my blog up more than I have, so hopefully I'll be better about checking in.
