Together Forever …

Our 14th anniversary came and went in the middle of the moving chaos.  We didn’t do much, just enjoyed relaxing at our new home in Georgia. If you haven’t read the beginning of our story, I wrote it out as an anniversary gift a few years ago:

Home Sweet Home

Home Sweet Home

We have been here for 5 days now. That’s it. And we can’t imagine ever leaving. NorthEast Georgia is stunning, breathtaking, peaceful, and charming. The little towns with town squares and local stores. Small rolling meadows surrounded by thousands of … Continue reading

Meal Planning during a move!

We have 13 days, and I still have tons of food in our fridge and pantry … yikes! We decided we need to eat this stuff, but its all the food from “the pantry is full, but there’s nothing to eat” category. So, I made a little image that prints off on a regular page. I can list the meal ideas, and what ingredients it uses, but it doesn’t commit us to a specific meal per day. Hopefully it helps us! I’m sharing the image in case anyone else wants to use it for PERSONAL USE :

Disney Dogs

I saw this video today, and had to share! I love how the service dog plays with pluto, and how kind and attentive the Disney crew is! Some day I will talk my husband into a Disney cruise 😉

Wedding Bells


My little sister is getting married.  The DAY before we officially leave Utah.  So weird to think that my little girls are going to be flower girls for their aunt … who was one of my flower girls.


There is now just ONE of my little flower girls left who isn’t married.

Such darling little girls, who have all grown into gorgeous women.

I can’t wait to share pictures of my three girls as flower girls!  Less than 3 weeks!


This crazy life …

Just 29 days until our big move.  Utah to Georgia.  Craziness!  Sometimes I sit back and wonder what the heck we are doing.  Then just as I start to panic, a calm peace comes over me.  Thats why we are doing this move.  No, we don’t have a new job.  We are leaving most of our extended family here in Utah.  We are leaving “the bubble” of Utah County, the security of schools we love, our kids friends, and an excellent church ward.  BUT, despite all this, we know we are doing the right thing for our family.  Adventure is out there … and we will find it, together.  Our little family of six.


Its looking like this might be our future home.  Nestled in the north-east hills of Georgia.  I do wonder how long it will take before I stop rolling my eyes and laughing at the hills they call “mountains” there … but coming from the MOUNTAINS of Utah, and living 2 miles from the entrance to the Alpine Loop that goes through timpanogos and past sundance … I tend to unfairly expect a LOT out of something that is labeled a “mountain”.

However, the Georgia pines and trees … oh heavens!  They make my heart smile!


This is the view from the backyard of that house.  Make sure someone is there to catch you when you swoon!




My kids have decided that this is the PERFECT spot for a fairy garden ❤



Last night I dreamed of curling up on this screened-in porch and reading  book.

Then there is the fact that most of the interior of the house is painted a gorgeous yellow, my favorite!



We hear back this afternoon regarding if we were approved …


Because when your backyard would look like this …
