Welcome family and friends to our family blog. My hope is that this will be a place where you can come and get a glimpse into our lives as many new changes are about to happen!
I had created this blog last spring to document our new home and the many changes that we were hoping to make as new homeowners. Since you all are spread out throughout the country I wanted to be able to share these "updates" with you without having to send weekly emails :)
This blog however is only now getting started because a few weeks after purchasing our first home we found out that I was pregnant! This was something that we had been praying would happen and we were beyond excited for these new changes that were occurring in our lives. We started planning all of the home renovations we wanted to make before our little one arrived and thought we would have at least 6 more months of combine income to make these changes. Little did we know that one week after finding out I was pregnant I would be diagnosed with Hyperemesis Gravidarum. This is basically another name for extreme morning sicknesses that unfortunately has last my whole pregnancy. Our lives changed as I had to leave my job and our new home to live with family as I needed around the clock care. I am so thankful for their support during this time. Dave, Miley and I were able to move into our new home, again, in August and have been slowly making a few changes.
Thank you for stopping by and seeing what is going on in our lives. I am excited to be able to document now not only our home renovations but our new life as soon to be parents! Below is a picture of Dave and I (34 weeks pregnant) at one of our baby showers for Will. We cannot wait to meet him! Only a few more weeks to go!
