At the Fair!

We went to the Ohio State Fair today, and did a TON of walking for hours and hours. I have never walked so much in my life!!! We saw some interesting things while we were there.
You could win a crab!!! I prefer fish, but to each their own.

Just a disclaimer, please excuse my hair. I am going through a transition period :(
There was a huge painted map of Ohio with all the counties. Here is our's, number 39!

There was a small part of the park that was roped off to preserve these pretty wild flowers. If you visit Ohio you'll find these flowers just about everywhere!

Butterfly center!!! Not as awesome as the one in Georgia where I'm from though :D

These cows are made of butter. I am not sure who had all the time in the world to carve this, but there was a sign that said it took 500 and something hours to make this. Where do they keep the sculptures? I don't know.

There was a petting zoo! this particular little fellow was so greedy, and creepy looking!!! He was hogging all the carrots!!!

This is my man feeding one of the animals. I can't remember what was the name of this one. There was a zebu and a water buffalo! Get the Veggietales reference? :)

And to end the day, we got CANDY!!!! (Please forgive my hair!!)

Have any of you gone to your state fair?

A New Beginning

This is A NEW BEGINNING for us. It is the first time since we met that we actually get to live near each other. Now that we are engaged to be married we figured it was time (yay!). We dated for a year and a half before I made the decision to move. This blog is about our journey and gives friends a way to keep up with us now that we are separated by at least 12 hours. But first, I would like to share our story with you.

About two years ago during this month I made the decision to try online dating, and so did Tim (Timothy). My parents instructed me that it might be a good thing to try, seeing that I was having a hard time meeting Seventh-Day Adventists in my area. I was on two other online dating sites (with no success) and happened upon a site for Adventist dating. It was kinda my last resort haha. I was on this site and was having terrible luck as well. It was so weird, all the guys talking to me were old enough to be my dad eww... One day I got on with the intention to delete my account, because I was tired. And, there it was a "the message" with a smile. So, I gave it a chance and amazingly we have been so perfect for each other. Its amazing what God can do for us when we trust Him. So another moral of this story, if dating is going terrible try online haha

Before I left, there were requests to my Facebook page so people could see what we were up to. So, this blog is a way for everyone to do that. I don't really update my Facebook as much, but I love to blog!!! So we are inviting you to keep up with this journey that God is giving us :) 

p.s. If you have a blog give our blog a little love and follow us! eNjOy!
