Oh my goodness.
I've missed you all!
In my defense, I've been pretty busy lately. In addition to moving (which is no fun), I did a lamely- executed-but-nevertheless-fun birthday party for my four-year-old the week before we moved.

I am back at the stage of needing to buy a camera. Mine broke four months ago, and my parents let me borrow theirs. They took it back a week ago and now I need to pony up and figure out whether to spend big and get better pictures without as much effort or spend small and have to work a little harder like Nike, one of my favorite bloggers, over at Choose to Thrive. I can't believe my parents had the cheek to take back what was rightfully theirs. The nerve :)!
I have a deadline now of this weekend to resolve my camera issues, whereupon I will immediately start inundating the blog with lots of "befores" and hopefully a few "afters".
But all of that aside, we are so very happily settling into our new home. And I am in love with my life right now.
I love our back deck (even if it needs to be stained)--and so do my kids.

I love having my own house so we can have a trampoline for my kids to frolic on again.
I love that 80% of our boxes are unpacked!
I love that another one of my favorite bloggers, Sarah at Modern Country Style, is having a fabulous giveaway. Spode polka dot bakeware pieces!!!! Be still my heart. I am just selfless enough to encourage anyone who is reading this to go on over and enter to win. But really, after you shamelessly enter her giveaway, poke around in Sarah's archives and become a follower. She is such a lovely, approachable, stylish person. I'm so glad we're blog-friends :).
Most of all, I love that one of my dearest friends is coming to spend the weekend with me! Hooray! We are planning a Mom field trip on Saturday, so look for a fun post next week.
Thanks for sticking with me, everyone. It feels good to be back in the land of the living.
