My chronic illness.... (PART 1)

Posted by samantha covington on

"But... You don't look sick" . . I know many people want deets on what exactly is wrong with me....  I, from the outside, look like a healthy 34 year old.  Sometimes its hard for people to really understand the daily problems I have.  See, some chronic illnesses don't look like cancer.  Some illnesses you don't even know are there from the outside...  Which is both a blessing and curse in one... . . . . Many, MANY women die from what I suffer with every.single.day.  In fact, last month a 34 year old died from a UTI.  It happens...

My favorite love story....

Posted by samantha covington on

Our first picture together....  Around March 4th, 2009.  Not sure exact date. . . . Where to begin...  I will say... out of all of the romantic love stories out there... ours is by far my favorite... topping Romeo and Juliet, Minnie and Mickey and Kermit and Piggy.  We may not always like each other but the love we have for each other runs deep. . . I have known Robbie for a long time.  He was actually my brothers best friend.  You know... the immature, thinks everything is funny even though its something incredibly stupid... yeah... that's how this...

Valentine Must Haves!

A Day of Love . . I LOVE Valentine's Day!  It helps me to beat the Winter blues.  I love to decorate for it and make my house all full of pink and love.  I have only found my love of Valentines Day in the last 3 years or so.  I never decorated for it in years prior.  It just has grown on me with all the really cute décor, shirts and party stuff out there that can be found.  . .  . . Not only do I love to decorate for the occasion, I LOVE doing gift baggies for...

New Year New You

Posted by samantha covington on

Starting Fresh . . . . Starting a New Year can mean so many different things...  Before Covid hit...  did a New Year really mean much to you?  Do you create resolutions?  Make a word?  Do you have more hope now in a New Year because of Covid?  Do you view a New Year differently now because of Covid? . . I always start a New Year off, decluttering my house.  I am in no way a hoarder.  If I don't use it or want it, I get rid of it!!  In fact, I have a Facebook group just for...

No socks or Cherries.

My first last Christmas. . . . Note on this post...  This was mega hard on me.  The time in which I am writing it, where Christmas is fresh in my mind, although has made for good content, my mind has just went everywhere with no real place to go.  Finding pics to insert in was even harder.    So, if it feels a little "splotchy" its because my mind was just that, splotchy and instead of changing it, I'm going with it.  Because its me and my true feelings and life.   . . December 23-26th are the hardest grieving...
