Our New Home at Christmas 2019

Our New Home at Christmas 2019


Merry Christmas, friends!

I haven't posted since Halloween because life has been a whirlwind as we moved into our new home & immediately began making updates. I don't even remember the month of November, it's a complete blur to me. After the holidays I will do a proper BEFORE & AFTER post so I can share all that we've done to make it our very own home. Plus we still have wallpaper to install, lights to switch out, and random boxes to unpack. And lots of furniture to buy & that'll take years to complete as we hunt for all the pieces that belong in this home.

Cindy Lou Who & Martha May Who - Halloween 2019

Cindy Lou Who & Martha May Who - Halloween 2019


Summer pool days often ended with cuddle time on the sofa watching one of Magnolia's favorite movies - The Grinch. We started planning our first ever family costumes back in September - Grinch with Cindy Lou Who + Martha May Who! This Halloween was a special one because it was going to be our first & last time trick-o-treating in our subdivision before our big move next week. And our subdivision makes a HUGE deal of holidays, especially Halloween. We're talking popcorn machines, haunted garages, fireball shots for the adults, firepits & more Christmas lights than at Christmas. The streets are packed with people from other cities coming to see what it's all about. She knew my sisters & their babes were coming over & that had Magnolia level 10 excited for the whole affair. She's been asking if it's Halloween for weeks & yesterday was finally THE BIG DAY! Ryan was off work and was able to go to her Halloween costume party at Kindermusik. Then we had lunch at her all time favorite place - Panera. We came home & both took a long nap before getting into our costumes.

Four Years

Four Years


​Four years ago today we had the most beautiful outdoor wedding. It was 74 degrees and sunny with a light breeze. The pink & blue cotton candy sky at dinner was painted by the Heavens above. It was a fairytale. More than magical; difficult for me to even put into words.

Our Annual Trip to the Pumpkin Patch

Our Annual Trip to the Pumpkin Patch


Hello friends! How exciting was this past weekend with a frosty chill in the air!?! We did all the fall stuff this weekend. We kicked it off with a trip to my sisters' homecoming parade & then football game on Friday night & on Sunday we took our annual trip to the pumpkin patch. It finally feels like fall now that we drank hot apple cider, danced to a Johnny Cash cover band, saw brand new baby pigs, and brought home a bunch of pum'kins.

The Red House

The Red House


A few weeks ago I dreamed I was standing in my grandparent's kitchen, by the window over their sink. I told my grandpa with all the excitement, joy & hope, that I wanted to buy their red house. I don't remember him saying anything to me, only a sense of acknowledgement & peace. Peace that he understood & was taking care of the details. The feeling of being inside the home I was raised felt euphoric. I went down to the basement & then my grandma came running down straight to me and gave me the tightest, warmest, longest hug. She said something to me about my heart & missing her. I woke in tears, strong emotional tears, not sad but overwhelmed because it felt so real. It felt as though I had been with them for only a fleeting moment, but enough time to fill me with an enormous amount of excitement. I had never dreamed of them together before.
