I want to share images I have captured over the last week and posted to my Instagram that highlight moments in my life. There is also a snazzy widget on my sidebar of my instagram if you are viewing my blog from the actual site. That gets lost if you are viewing it in reader, so from time to time I thought it would be fun to do a post and share a few images that I thought were worth pointing out from my week. I will try to do this each Sunday. I hope you enjoy!
My Great-Great Grandpa helped build this bridge. The bridge was built in 1922 as part of the State Work Project. We went back to my hometown to visit family for Mother’s Day.
This is the dirt road I grew up on. I spent my childhood walking this road, and riding my bike up and down it. We lived down at one end of it and my Great-Grandparents lived at the beginning of it. I would walk up the road every morning to catch the bus. Every afternoon I would get off at their house, my Great Grandpa would have an afternoon snack wrapped in a paper towel for me. It was always a Nutty Buddy Bar and an Oatmeal Pie. This picture was taken halfway up the road facing the main road as we left coming home that afternoon.
It was pets sit weird day at our house that day. First here’s Misha sitting on the couch:
Then just a few minutes later I walked into the kitchen and found Zazzle sitting on the safety gate we use to keep the dogs out of the back of the house:
It was INR day so I wore my Sometime’s It’s Lupus shirt that my husband made me to my appointment. Dr. C he liked it a lot and got it. My INR was 3.3 and I agreed to space my next one 1.5 weeks out. We will see how that goes. He is leaving it up to me and allowing me to decide when I come in as long as I come in every 1-2 weeks. He also ran the labs he is running for Dr. L again and they came back perfect. 2 more rounds at the current frequency and then I’m guessing a new set of orders get sent out. I have an appointment with Dr. L Monday and Dr. C on Friday.
Sometimes It's Lupus. We made shirts! Picture Taken at Dr. C's office. Went in for my INR check and to have my labs checked that are been ran every two weeks since I started Imuran. If all goes well only two more rounds at this frequency then a new set of orders will be sent out! INR was 3.3 today. I see Dr. C again next Friday for my next follow up. #lupus #lupusawareness #lupuswarrior #antiphospholipidsyndrome #may #awareness #awarenessmonth #lupusawarenessmonth #lupie #drappt

I got to enjoy a little time out in the sun today. I upped my SPF to 70 and it was a nice cool spring day. It was gorgeous and it was a great afternoon to be out.
The honeysuckles are blooming and the air is fragrant with them! Their scent brings back so many memories from my childhood.
