It’s Gone!

After a month of delays that kept coming, our house finally closed yesterday! It was a rough ride especially for me. I spend my days at my parent’s house just thinking about our current life and all that has gone on. I don’t see my friends since they are miles away, Brent is away at work and I just find myself wondering what to do with my time. The delay of the house kept making all of this harder on me. When will we be able to move on?

Thanksgiving in a new land

We spent our first Thanksgiving in the PNW and it was a beautiful light rainy day. I don’t think I have ever spent a Thanksgiving away from my sister, so this year was hard. We normally start our day by heading outside to participate¬†in the local Huffing for Stuffing race. Since Elijah came early last year, I was even able to still do the 10k. What to do in the PNW?
