Hoping you are all doing well love.

Sorry Dee to be posting this on all of my threads....

So......Nick and I are getting married on Saturday September 23rd at Scioto River, late afternoon.
Of course you are all invited, but I understand it is not a lot of notice, especially if you are coming from Australia.

Seriously, I know people have busy lives, but we are welcoming whoever wants to come.

Any ideas of where I can look online/shops for a wedding outfit girls?....thinking white suit something like you wore wehav, with a bit of a different top maybe, something a bit more open. ((((Help, please)))).

Love love love to all of you. ♥♥♥

Sorry to throw a spanner in the works, but we changed the wedding to tomorrow.....long-story short exhausted and insane is not the right way for me to get married. We are both relaxed now and so very glad we are going to get married in our beautiful garden just like we wanted to do in the first place.

Our beautiful Serene is married by now...

Bet she's happy.

Hello Feb friends

its been a long time but Iíve never stopped thinking of you, especially you V 😘. I hope everyone is happy and healthy as we round the corner to six, yes six years sober. It seems like both yesterday and a lifetime ago.

Things have been changing once again for me as Iíve added one last baby into the mix- a little girl named Sophie. So now I have Clark (4), Bryce (2), and little Sophie (6weeks). I hope this message finds you all happy and healthy.

Love as always, Mel

And two stepsons. And a father in law who is awesome.
And there is lots more....

Hi Mel, V, WeHav, Dee, & Febbies -

So good to stop by and see updates from everyone. I slipped into the black hole of new mommy + moving + starting a new job = waaaay too much to do. I'm still sober here and sober!

V - Congrats on your green card (& belated first year anniversary)
Mel - Congrats on your little girl. She's adorable. All of your children are adorable. Thx for posting pics! I just sent you a friend invite on FB.
Wehav - Hugs to you. I hope that you didn't get hit to hard with this last storm, and hoping that they are done for the year. I can't believe how cold it's been!

Kathryn is now 11 months - turns 1 at the end of this month! (How did the happen + Phew!) . Not yet walking, but loves "organizing" my tupperware and swinging doors. She learns quickly, cheerful, easy going baby, and I'm liking each stage so far. Lots of work, but her smile and giggle make it worth it For me: I'm teaching 2 university classes on innovation this quarter, which wraps up at the end of March. It gets me out of the house and was the perfect stretch activity for me this year as it offers a lot of flexibility. I've been occasionally updating on '1 year and over thread.'

I'm so sorry to hear that Gilmer is no longer with us :/

K is about to go after the stairs, and with that, I go too.

Congrats and warm hugs to all of us on choosing to start our recovery journey 6 years ago. Best and hardest things I've ever done. Thanks for sharing this journey with me.

Oh my gosh darling Serene.....almost 1....wow hunny.....and we got married at the same time, yes? So it's almost a year and a half for us both.

I still think that the blessings from this thread are just incredible.....wehav, Mel, Serene (you ), me.....all of us got sober, got our lives, got married and have families. Errrr.....wow.

Gilmer was my best friend.....dear Kathy.....and I hurt but I am living for both of us now....I promised her I would. xx

Hugs everyone!

Just a quick note that both V and I can be found hanging out on the 1 year and over thread (and I still come by here too, but more infrequently).

V - I think your sober anniversary is coming up in a few weeks in late October? Wanted to congratulate you!!!!

Mel - Sofie is adorable! Belated congratulations!

Life is moving right along for me. Baby K is now 18 months and has started the word explosion. We are trying for #2. Hopefully it will happen for us in our older age. I lost a good 20 years to the bottle, so Iím grateful to have a happy life now: I definitely made the right choice to get healthy first - wish I had done it years sooner!!!!

Iíll update here with any good news of course

Grateful we can celebrate together

Oh love.....no. 2...... Yay!!!!! ❤️❤️

Maybe Mel will come and check in now and tell us how her THREE kiddos are doing.

We are an incredibly successful class....we really are.....maybe not many of us....but you, me, Mel and wehav all got sober and got married.

Februbuddies for life. ❤️
