You know, I didn't intend for a year and a half to be my hiatus, but it was! Crazy how that happens. I apologize for dropping out of blog-land without notice....life took over (in many good ways!) and I hope you all are doing well. I have had quite the year....trust me, a lot can happen in a year, as they say! And this is what I've been up to....
Hubs and I did some redecorating last winter/spring:
The cabinets used to be maple and the walls used to be cinnamon!
We took a trip down south to Atlanta, Savannah and Charleston last May, 2014. Part work trip/part vacation and it was one of our best trips ever! I highly recommend going there. It was also the catalyst event for what's to come...
Driveway to Boone Plantation, outside Charleston
The summer went by and then last September we found out we were expecting our first child in spring 2015!
We saw Fleetwood Mac (the Classic 5!) in concert in November 2014. So good. They rocked that one!
A week or so later, Hubs was on his way to San Francisco, but I stayed home because I was still in my first trimester and was a little iffy about flying. Otherwise, I would have went with him!
The winter was cold and uneventful. Meh. Let's skip to Spring 2015!
Easter bump, April 2015!
Also in April, we found out that Hubs was offered a two year position in Washington, D.C. with his work! Of course Hubs accepted it. We'd be fools to turn it down! (Can't reveal details here but it's a fantastic opportunity....big-time!!)
Our little son, S, was born in May 2015! (One day after Princess Charlotte!)
He is such a delight. He definitely has some of his Mama's and Papa's traits for sure...and we're keeping his info private for now. But he's got a good strong name...something that would sound official if he was ever a Mr. Supreme Court Justice one day! :)
So now it's July 2015 and we're getting our house ready for the move! (With a 2 month old!) Crazy. Crazy. Crazy. But in the wise words of Donald Miller, what would make the better story?
....and so my story continues! We have two weeks left here in Saskatchewan! Surreal. Hubs will go to D.C. at the end of July, as we get possession of our new place in Virginia in early August. S and I will be staying with my parents for a week or two until our furniture arrives in Virginia, then Hubs will fly back here and then we will all fly out to DC together the next day, probably mid-August. We are very excited about this new chapter in our lives!
PS. Ben F seems to like my new specs...he's always amused!
