Oh hey there.

   For every house is built by someone, but He who built all things is God.

Hebrews 3:4

  Hey! Its been awhile since we've seen each other ;) lets start this post off with a brief recap of my life the past few months..

   In the spring while living in South Carolina I had a big, sad moment of missing my family in PA. Knowing we would want to move within the year, but not knowing how or if Hubby will get a job that will relocate us, I started worrying.. and crying a lot.  Then I told myself to shape up, I don't need to worry about this stuff, I have a wonderful God that will worry about it for me!  Lucky me, huh?
So every night, or really any time I felt the worry creep up on me; (and boy did it like to creep up on me!) I said a prayer and reminded myself that God knows what he is doing, and that is enough.

  Come June, Hubby got a call telling him about a job that he may be interested in and it's about an hour and a half from "back home".  He gives them his resume in June he has a interview in July and in August he starts the job! God is GOOD

   I will gloss over the agonizing 2 weeks without Hubby while I was trying to deal with moving and 3 kids (thankfully we had movers help, but boy was it stressful with 3 kids and no husband!) yes, those two weeks are best not mentioned and altogether be forgotten about.

    Soo here we are living in a townhome temporarily.. making this home number...6? in our 7.5 years of being married.  And guess what?  We'll be moving AGAIN in the spring! Only WAIT! this home will be our home that we lay our roots down.  It will be OURS.  I'm so very excited. We will be a half hour closer to "home" making it almost exactly an hour away. It's funny how I used think living 20 minutes from my parents was so painfully far away.  After moving 11 hours away from them, I am happy to be soon living an hour away.  I am just very grateful that I have parents and In-Laws that I so badly WANT to live near! We are so very lucky for that!

   I can't wait to go on this journey of seeing our house being built and decorating it, exploring our new 'hood. There has already been many things along the way to stress me out but it's still fun and darn it, I will not let it get the best of me!  It almost did, but I just have to refocus and take a break sometimes.

  I know I have been annoying people about my dilemmas with the house: paint colors.. floors, cabinets, counter tops- ugh.  So hopefully I can just stop all that blabbering and keep the house talk to here on my blog as not to annoy anyone else.  That is except for a few that are closest to me, they will have to endure it all, sadly. (sorry hubby, mom and my dear W.S. friends - you know who you are :)

So if you are interested, stay tuned! If not.. I'll let you know when it's safe to come by again :)
