Sometimes I just need a bit of quiet to get my thoughts and my heart together. Blogging is something that I do to connect with others, and just like in real-life relationships there can be trials and strife when relationships become close. I just haven't had much practice in dealing with the intricacies of negotiating relationships with people I feel close to but have never met in 'real life', so my first reaction to hurt feelings and strange feelings of discord was simply to turn off this part of my life. Maybe it wasn't the best decision, but it certainly proved to me that just like I would call a friend and make-up over a cup of coffee, that it's time to put on my big girl blogging panties, confess my heart, ask for forgiveness and blog on!
My little (big) girl is just growing like a little weed! This was her first ice-cream cone. I think it's obvious that she's now 100% thrilled about me taking pictures of her..
Let me catch you up on the most recent happenings of our crazy move to Dallas:
- Our adorable little blue bungalow sold really quickly. So quickly that we had to move in with my parents and send all of our things into storage while we began building our new house.
- Daniel is working away during the week, and coming home on the weekends :( We are going on our fourth month of commuting like this, and it's hard!
- That house that should have been built already..yeah. They never even started it. 120 days, a fat deposit, and the builder didn't even have our foundation poured. Super scammy booo!
- We found a 'new' old house to restore! By 'we' I mean Daniel did. I thought he was a crazy goon who wanted to buy a house that others were just going to tear down.
|These are some little mock-ups I made of the renovated exterior. Do you have a favorite?|
For now, we are blooming where we are planted, enjoying lots of time with our family, and looking forward to the new adventures around the corner. I promise to keep you posted!
Lots of love,
