Life Lately......


// Tomorrow night one of my dear friends, Ann Schwartz, is hosting her very first pop-up shop at one of my favorite boutiques...Simply J!  I know you guys have probably heard me talk about Ann many times on this blog, but her art is truly amazing, and not to mention, she has a heart of gold.  I will be there the entire night, so I sure hope to see some of your pretty faces!  Wine, food, adorable clothing, and stunning art....sounds like the perfect night to me! 




And here's a little preview of what will be for sale......





// Todd and I have officially decided to put our house on the market in January!!  I am a complete ball of emotions about this, just typing the words out has me tearing up.  We are both super excited and sad all at the same time.  We love our home, we have now been here for eight years, and we've poured our hearts and soul into this place.  We have friends that are like family here (as do Taylor and Carson) and leaving them will be so hard, even if we're not too far away.  We brought both of our babies home here, and watched them have all of their "first" in this home.  There are so many things I will miss about this neighborhood and our home, I could sit here all day listing them, but Todd and I are both really excited about the future.  I don't want to get too far ahead of myself here, but we have a pretty good idea of where we are going and it's a place I've dreamed of for many years.  I promise to keep you all posted along the way.

And third. 



So life after the holidays is probably going to be a bit crazy, and I can't wait for this next adventure! Thank you so much for following along and allowing me to share so much of my family and our lives with you all!!

  8. We still own our former home (the one we brought our babies home to- well actually my youngest was born AT that house! Lol). We rent the house out and I can't go over there because I cry and cry. So, actually our plan (hopefully) is to raise our family in our current, much larger home, sell it when they're adults, pocket the profits and move "home" to the house we've been renting to people for 25 years!

  9. How exciting yet a bit sad at the same time. I still drive by our first house from time to time and we went trick or treating there this year. Whenever you revisit your neighborhood you will get that warm and fuzzy feeling! So much fun ahead for you all! :)
