It has been pretty obviously quiet around here. No new blogs but lots of things on Pinterest (I LOVE Pinterest!). Starting in April, right after Easter, I took a little hiatus from this blog. Not because I am giving up blogging, quite the opposite actually. But every once in awhile a little break is needed.
This has been a busy year so far for our little family.
My husband re-enlisted in the Marine Corps. We didn't think we would but Heavenly Father has His plan for us and we are following His will. We know He will not lead us astray.
We have packed up moved across the country and are still settling into our home. I started packing in April and I am still organizing and unpacking now. It makes me want to apply minimalism to absolutely everything!
We bought our first home (huzzah!) and we have had a blast renovating it. We are not done yet and I am looking forward to sharing the before and after results with everyone.
School starts this next week and I am officially homeschooling! My oldest is in Kindergarten and it a very daunting and amazing task I have in front of me. So much planning and thought and prayer!
And finally, we will be welcoming another baby to our family soon as if that isn't busy enough in and of itself. You forget in between pregnancies how busy (and uncomfortable) the third trimester is and how much time you spend preparing the house and kiddos for the new arrival. The kids are getting impatient for the new baby to arrive and so am I. So am I!
With all that on my plate, a hiatus was totally needed. I am glad that blogging is something I can set aside and then come back to with new ideas and plans. My hubby and I have made some great plans for this blog and plans for my hubby as well (more on that later) and we hope to get the ball rolling on our ideas soon. I think you'll like them.
But for now, I am enjoying this hiatus. I am enjoying the summer, working on our house and relaxing with my kids and hubby. I hope to see you back here soon!
