I'm Baaack...


After a two and a half month hiatus, I think I'm ready to blog again.

I don't really know what my deal was... sometimes it was that I felt too busy and overwhelmed, sometimes it was because I just simply was not feeling creative or inspired. There were several occasions where I sat down at the computer and stared at a blank screen for awhile and then gave up.

A lot has happened in the last couple of months, and part of the reason I couldn't blog was because I felt like I couldn't share a lot of things that were going on yet. I kinda felt like if I wrote I would feel like a liar leaving some major things out!

I was out on a walk today with my sweet baby girl, Chloe, and it was so beautiful out there that I started thinking about pictures and blogging and how much I miss it. I just decided to be honest about everything that is going on so that you guys can be praying for us!

First, here are a few pictures from our walk:

My girl, Chloe.

She NEVER looks at the camera... ughh!

Trying to take a pic of myself, Chloe sees a dog, starts going BANANAS, and this is the result =)

So while I was on this walk, I was reflecting about the major changes that have happened in the last couple of months and the major changes that are about to happen in the next couple of months.

*First, I finished college last week! I can't believe that after five long years (Yea, yea I took the five year plan- but it was worth switching majors, changing schools, taking a semester off, and doing lots of catching up to find what I really want to do for the rest of my life) I'M DONE AND SO HAPPY WITH MY CAREER CHOICE! I finished my student teaching with tears in my eyes and a smile on my face. That is pretty hard to do by the way =)

I really, really cried. BAD. I already miss these kids and my fabulous cooperating teacher SO much. They taught me so much about myself, about teaching, about life, about accepting others, about being carefree, etc. I could go on and on. Thank goodness I have already received about ten emails and been to a birthday party:

This child changed my life forever!

*Second, is the thing I haven't really shared with the public because we are waiting for confirmation. WE NEED PRAYERS! My husband is on the brink of a really huge and exciting job opportunity in my hometown (SoOo happy about that). The job is in surgical sales and there is a lot of corporate aspects that have to be taken care of before they can hire him, etc. WELL- we have been waiting. And waiting. And waiting. I have not been searching for jobs here because we are supposed to be moving. I can't search for jobs there because I don't know when we are moving. We have a house ready there. We are in a house here where we need to let the people know when we are leaving. BUT WE DON'T KNOW. Catchin my drift? I am such a planner and organizer that this is killing me! There are so many if's, but's, and when's. I don't like if's, but's, and when's.

Last night, we completely gave the situation over to the Lord and know that he will take care of us and work things out in his timing. Prayers will be appreciated though =) When it all works out, this is what I'll be doing on a daily basis:

Anyway, there are a million things that have happened over the last two and half months and I can't possibly catch you guys up on everything. I'm starting fresh today! Be back tomorrow, promise ;)
