{i'm back}

Well after much deliberation.... I'm back :) just kidding. I've been super busy with school and work lately. I had my first exam in Anatomy & Physiology, and let me tell you... it was one hard test. I am just praying that I passed!

It snowed, and they closed the school again! It was amazing. Harper and I stayed home; we watched Anne of Avonlea, colored and I was able to get some much needed reading time in for school.

Today I'm going to share some projects that I made recently at the crop that I attended a couple weekends ago. That weekend I got a ton of projects done, and these are just a couple of cute ones that I love!!

Cardstock - Coredinations, Kraft
Patterned Paper - Echo Park
Embellishments - American Crafts, Jenni Bowlin, Echo Park

So for all of you who are curious to know.... Gavin and I have decided that we are going to put our house on the market so that we can move back to Denton and be closer to our family and friends. It was a journey buying a our first home and living so far from our jobs, school, friends and family. We thought that it was exciting to be on our own, but we realize that we are even more dependent on our family because we have a little one. Our neighborhood is nice, but it doesn't feel like home. Our house is lovely, if we could, we would just transplant the house in Denton, but seeing as we cannot do that, we are excited about this new journey in our life, selling our house, finding a little home in town to live for a few years, and growing our tiny family by one more one day. Gavin and I see this as taking a step back from home ownership responsibilities until we are finished with school, and we are really excited about it!! With this transition, we will be able to put money into savings, start a 529 savings plan for Harper's college, and we will be able to pay off our consolidated debt and buy Gavin a reliable (new to us) car!!

I hope that all of you support this dream for us, and pray that we sell our house quickly so that we can move by the summer to our new place!!! We would really appreciate any of the support and prayers that we can get right now while we make this life transition!

With Love,
