 We have been trying to get on a cruise for many years now but with life and all the things that happen we have not. Well I decided that Me and Ben needed a vacation to celebrate many things so I booked us a cruise and we had the best time ever!!!
 We celebrated that I was done with cancer treatments
We celebrated that after many years of hard work Ben is now a licensed MFT
We celebrated our 7 years together with Many more to come
 The weather was really cold but I really wanted to go snorkeling. I almost gave in when I was shivering when we met up with our group. After some convincing we went and it was really alot of fun.
 We had a very eventful last year. It was so nice to go and relax and do something that had nothing to do with CANCER. We didn't even have to talk about it or make any decisions regarding my health. Are only decisions we had to make was what we wanted to do when we got off the boat. This was much needed for both me and ben.

 I am still not as strong as I wish I was. This vacation wore me out.

 We met a great couple The Rodgers that we spent the day with and hung out with at night. They saved us by taking our suitcases home so when we spent the day in Long Beach we didn't have to roll them along with us.  Thank You!!!
I am so grateful for this chance to spend time with Ben. I have put him through a lot this last year and he has been by my side every step of the way and still is. I am so blessed that we are in this together. I love him very much and could not have done it without him. 

I packed the wig away!!

Packing the wig away was a lot harder then I thought it would be. I guess I felt that I could hide from things because no one could see what I saw and I found comfort in that. My hair was really growing and I knew it was time to start doing my hair again. You could see my real hair under the wig. I do have to say it was so nice not having to buy any hair products for 8 months. The day I packed it away we were able to go to dinner to celebrate Grandma Farmer's birthday.  Now I am on a new phase once again trying to get use to really short hair. Just when I get use to one thing it is time to change. I am ready for change to slow down a little bit. My little preschoolers had so many things to say about my hair. I am sure it was so confusing to them. They still after a couple of weeks tell me they want my other hair(wig) back because they like it better. Gotta love kids!! I am getting more use to is every day and yes it is coming back CURLY!!! Who knows maybe I will end up having short hair from now on?
