It's been nearly 2 years since I last wrote a post on this lonely little blog of mine. Since then, I've been quite busy. First and foremost, I gave birth to a wonderful baby girl named Stella
She's now 19 months old and seriously the best thing that's ever happened to me.
We also sold our tiny little bungalow in the city and moved to a nice, big house in the suburbs.
Old house- right before we sold with new paint and flowers all along the front. It was a little bit sad to finally get it all fixed up and not get to live in it very long like that.
New house- tons of space (3x as much!) and a huge front and back yard to play in :-)
We also remodeled the kitchen in our new house the first 2 weeks we lived here. Thank you IKEA for having the kitchen sale the month that we moved! I love our kitchen and I'm so excited that I got to help design it and that it's just how I wanted it. I'll post pictures of that whole process later.
We also made the decision for me to continue to stay at home with Stella instead of going back to work. After crunching the numbers, we figured out that I can make just as much money staying home, babysitting every once in a while, and doing more cakes/cookies than I would make if I went back to work and had to pay for daycare! Very thankful that so far this has worked out.
I'm currently off Facebook for Lent. I decided that this could be a time for me to focus more on my relationship with God, my family, and other things that make me a better person. Blogging is something I have dearly missed and I'm excited to get back to it as my connection to the outside world :-)
I promise to come back soon! <3 p="">
