what it's all about

I am on a journey -like you, I'm sure. A personal journey, a spiritual journey. A journey about passions, growth, and living. I don't have a good memory, but I value my experiences. It's very strange when you realize that you are being shaped constantly, but ultimately only remember some of the reasons why you are the person you're becoming. I find that when things resonate within me, writing about them helps me to better develop my opinions about them, and to remember them. Sometimes, it's the simple act of looking back and reminding myself where I've been that is all I need to move forward with confidence. That's why I write. Thank you for joining me.

House update

So, I know I've mentioned that my hubby and I are building a house. Well, I'm finally gonna tell you all about it. Chris and I had visited this community long before we ever thought to make a home here -even before we were even engaged- when we were just thinking about building a life together. A year or two later, and we're building house together! We fell in love with this floorplan the moment we stepped into the model. It is a big place, but the thing we love about it is how open it is. The first floor doesn't have any walls seperating you from the front entry to the back wall of the house. There are columns supporting the second floor instead. We've taken tons of pictures, and are so entertained by them, but that's probably just us! Haha. I won't bore you with all kinds of construction photos, but every week there has been huge changes, and it has all been very exciting.

About a month ago, the clearing and foundation were poured, and 30 days later:

Pretty amazing, huh? These people don't waste any time! Seriously, one week before this picture was taken, only the first floor was framed, and there were no walls or rooflines. Crazy and amazing!
We are scheduled to close mid/end of September, just after our one year anniversary. :)

God has been providing for us every step of the way, and even seems to be blessing others involved. I know He's got something awesome in store for us in this new community, and can't wait to see how we can make a difference there.
