A Few Recent Favorites

Life has been crazy for us! We've been displaced from our home for almost a month - just finally moved back in - due to a major sewer issue. Totally gross, so I'll spare the details. Anyway, we're all fixed up now and our home is back in working order. The timing couldn't have been worse for it all to happen. We've been contemplating putting our house on the market in anticipation of making a move to a new home and then, bam....we dump more money than we would have liked into replacing an old sewer system in a home we don't intend to live in much longer. Ahhh! During all this chaos, I had plans for college friends/sorority sisters to travel in town to see Kate and attend our 50 Year Anniversary festivities for my sorority. No friends could stay with us given the house conditions - total bummer! And, to top it off, we had been planning a special vacation back to the place where we honeymooned (Whistler, Canada) as a nice little Five Year wedding anniversary gift to ourselves and despite our fingers crossed that we could get everything back in shape before leaving and have peace of mind, we left with our house still in disarray and uninhabitable. Hence, I'm behind yet again with blogging.

On a much brighter note, we have returned from our vacation and while we were gone, Kyle's dad helped oversee the work on our sewer system to completion and both of our families helped get us moved back into our home by the time we returned from vacation - just this past weekend. yay! I feel like our lives are getting back to normal. In the grand scheme of things, while these issues may feel major at the moment, they really are so minor and will not effect us any further into the future. I'm grateful that everything is now fixed!

I don't have all recent pictures uploaded, edited and ready to post but here's a few that are on my iPhone that are some of my new faves! Kate will be nine months old in just a couple of weeks. So hard to believe! She's what keeps everything in perspective for us! Love, love, love!

  1. She is sooooo cute! I enjoyed catching up with you, if even for a short while, at the reunion. Glad you are back to "normal" life!
