I am so happy that you have landed in my little corner of cyberspace. If you join me here, you will, hopefully, get to know a little about me. You will read my thoughts, my hopes and dreams, and see some of my favorite things. I hope you will visit often. I will try to update it regularly and hopefully you will see an improvement in the blog along the way. Thank you for stopping in to see me as I travel on this journey called "life"!

We bought a house.

We did not think that we 
would do that again.

We were loving the idea 
of no responsibility.

Circumstances change though...

We needed more space...

We could buy cheaper than 
we could rent...

God opened the door and 
we walked through it.

So now the fun begins...

If you've commented on a previous post 
or emailed me and you haven't heard back from me, please know that I will get back to you.  Your comments and friendship is very important to me.

It's a pretty crazy time 
for us right now. 

We have lots to do before 
the end of the month.  

I'm going to be a little absent until we can get settled in to our new home.

Thank you for your encouragement and support while I take a little break.  I hope that I can come back with some new stuff to share with you. 

For all of you mothers out there....

Happy Mother's Day to you!
