My long!

Wow. How long it's been since I posted something here on my poor neglected blog! :( And how much has changed since my last post! :)

All went well with the selling of our home. The couple who bought it needed to close a little bit earlier, so we moved in with my parents for about 2 weeks. We had our whole life packed up in a UHaul rental truck in their driveway and our storage facility until we could close on our new house. As most of you know, we wanted to build a new home and that was our dream. VERY long story short...we couldn't build. Getting the sewage up to our property was going to be such an excessive cost and the taxes went up tremendously and that (amongst other things) priced us right out of our dream. :( It was by far a HUGE bummer, but....what can you do right?!?! Given lemons, you need to make lemonade! We searched and searched for a new home in the area we wanted to move to and found it!

It's 4 bedrooms/2.5 bathrooms. There is SO much more space than our old house! It's truly amazing. We are really, really enjoying it and still have so much we need to unpack. We're having fun though and we're hoping to start painting and making some cosmetic changes sometime really soon. I'll have to post some pics for y'all to see it! :)

That has pretty much consumed my life for the past year! Selling the house was WAY harder and more work than we thought and the whole selling/buying process was way more stressful than I thought it would be. I put on about 40 pounds in the past year that I need to get off now and it will NOT be easy! :( All good things come to those who wait, right??!?!?

Other than that, I'm still designing at Oscraps and have LOTS of neat projects up my sleeve. Now just to find the time to get them all out of me and done! lol Hope you all are doing well! I know that hardly anyone checks this old neglected thing anymore, but I'm hoping to change that again and post more regularly again. Talk to ya soon! {HUGS}
