I lived in San Antonio from December 2006 to October 2007. A lot happened during that time, I got married, had a baby, family troubles, etc, but I never did explore the great city I lived in. I have decided that if San Antonio is going to be where I live, I should take the time to get to know it! I spent sometime yesterday searching the internet and making a pin board on Pinterest on San Antonio. You can see it here: San Antonio, TX...more
May 10 was the anniversary of our move to Asheville. In the weeks before, I was a little worried that I might get overwhelmed; caught up in emotional over-reflection, if that makes sense. The week ended up being really busy and I didn't have time to sit down and be dramatic about any of it, which was fine with me. ...more
Here we are, FOUR DAYS until Caitlin's wedding. WOW! These 8 months have flown by. Robby has officially admitted to "surrendering" to whatever we want or need to finish this event up. I have completed all of the tasks that were set before me and I must say that, although, I am a bit weary, it feels good to have accomplished everything I was given.

I really loved being married. I loved finally being with Aaron all the time. But at the same time, I was sad. I went from a little two-bedroom house a few miles from one of my best friends, and a short twenty-minute back road commute to a job where I was valued and appreciated; close, loving friendships; an active volunteering schedule; and a church community that was my heart's home to a strange new place. And it was hard.
If you weren't aware, we moved last week. Also, if you weren't aware, I had a black eye.The first night in our new house, not only were the babies all in our bed from 2:30am to almost 5, but the cats went completely berserk. With joy. That's what I'm telling myself at least....more
