when last we met. . . .

I was rejoicing in our upcoming move to Snowflake, AZ. In June it will have been a year since we moved in with my parents and DC started his new career as an occupational therapist and I started mine as a general contractor for our house. Fluffy had 10th grade at SHS, and Hummer and Rosebud went to a little charter school.
It has been a wonderful first year here!
Exacto had a semester at BYU and is now serving as a full-time missionary in southern Germany. It is an extremely high priority for me to write to him weekly, and that means I am going through my pictures weekly and keeping up with my journal. That means I could just adapt a letter to him for my blog, right?
That’s my plan anyway. I really prefer blogging over any other form of social media. (Although IG is a close second – so fun! And quieter than FB, if you know what I mean :). With blogging I have a chance to share more completely what’s going on in my mind and heart, and I like that people can choose whether they see it or not.
I’m hoping to post abridgements of my letters to Exacto, updates on the building of our house, more days of gratitude, and just any thoughts or happy things I want to share. 
Anyway, I really miss being here and hope that now we’re settling down probably permanently (WOOOT!), I can return to my happy spot here. I seriously need to update those sidebar pictures. Wow.

Quite an achievement for the violinist to build a house, if it's a custom one & not a tract house.

I'm looking forward to weekly updates! I can't wait to see how the house is coming along.
