Life Is Crazy but Changes Are Good, right?

Wow - I can't believe my last post was in September..... where has the time gone!
 So many things have changed in just a couple of months that I don't even know where to begin.  
So here it goes (short version)!

Well, after almost 4 months I am finally able to talk about and tell everyone that I am Single.  Yes, life has changed alot since my last post.  So after 4 1/2 years in my relationship and lots of prayers and talks with God, I finally decided it was time for me to make a change (for the better).  Believe me, this was not done easily at all and every day is still extremely hard.  And even though I am still heartbroken, God has given me a peace about the situation and my decision. 
 And as a good friend keeps telling me every time I ask him when will I ever feel over Justin, or ok to start dating again...."It all takes time and one day you will really just wake up and be OK!" 

And on a better note in the last 4 months, my little side business has GROWN so much that I am completely amazed at all the business.  I used to be excited about having 30 orders at one time, now I am constant at about 130 orders and up!  And with still working full time, this definitely keeps me busy but it also keeps my mind off of everything that has been going on, which is a true blessing! 

And with keeping busy, I have made sure to also focus on myself more. And if anyone knows me- knows I love to workout so a priority of mine for the last 4months has been attending bootcamp everyday and running more and more! Well finally I am seeing results (maybe it's just because the stress is finally starting to come off a bit) but I am officially down 22 lbs and up to running 6 miles!  Which means that I am that much closer to accomplishing one of my goals, which is to run a half marathon/marathon! 

Another huge change which makes me very sad is I know longer have my 2 precious puppies that I just adored!  It was one of those decisions that killed me to make but knew that with a very small/temporary place to live right now, two huge boxers would not be happy.  Sometimes I think loosing them was harder than breaking up :)  But at least the two little mutts are together and can run and play in the huge backyard. 
And my family promises me that as soon as I buy my house they will get me a another boxer :)

Well I think that might be the short story of all the changes! 
I am still trying to adjust to all of them and slowly but surely am getting on my feet again! 
I definitely know God has a reason for all this and that alone has been my strength. 

So now that I finally disclosed why I have been MIA.. I now need to figure out a new url address for my blog. I am thinking that justinntatum might not be the best choice anymore :) 
And also a new blog name/title due to Tater Tots and Fire Hoses now officially having it's own website! 

So if anyone has any ideas, please let me know! I would love to hear them! 
I definitely am ready to get back to blogging, but want a new fresh start on this blog! 
Including a blog makeover... and I am in the process of finding the right designer to do one!!!
