She's Ba-ack!

Have you ever been relaxing in the bath, leaning back on your dollar store bath pillow thinking to yourself, “Holy Cow! This has been a stressful couple of months!”?

Lately, I’ve been so out of touch with this world of blogging. The excuse reason I’ve been M-I-A is because we’ve been moving, and without the internet. We’ve moved far enough out of town that it apparently isn’t that easy to get internet. The reason we moved? Well, we are one of the many that lost our house to the bank. I hate even writing that, admitting that, because it’s shameful and disappointing but it is what it is and now you know.

We are settling into our new home, where I have been sleeping better than I’ve slept in years. I think its due partly to the fact that I feel a huge weight of stress has been lifted, and also partly due to the coziness of this…CABIN!

We are living in a LOG CABIN! Can you believe that!? It’s the strangest thing to be sitting on the couch looking around me and I see logs, actual logs, surrounding me. The cabin sits on around 8 acres, there’s a small barn, a tractor, a mountain, ponds, trees, I get to have my horses (we got another horse) here, the kids are in heaven with so much to explore and do. It’s really amazing! God is good.
We hosted Thanksgiving up here, my parents, my brother and his family, and my best friend and her family all came. Steve and I agree that it was one of the best Thanksgivings that we’ve had since we’ve been married (13 years thank you very much!). We love that there’s room for everyone and never a lack of something to do. Whether its chopping wood for the wood stove, taking care of the horses, swinging on the rope swing, reading a book by the fire, or sitting in the rocking chairs on the front porch enjoying the sounds of the waterfall and hearing the kids playing in the background. I could have never imagined that we would be in such a place, the Lord provides.
Like many of you, I’ve been getting into the Christmas spirit. I love it! I would have been into it earlier if we wouldn’t have been moving… Anyway, I just wanted to touch base with everyone, and let you know that I’m officially BACK, oh and that I’m dreaming of a white Christmas!

Isaiah 9:3 “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given...and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace ”

Merry Christmas!
