Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him.

Psalm 127:3

Lily Anne is Here!

As most of you have undoubtedly figured out by now, our sweet, sweet Lily Anne has arrived! She took us mostly by surprise, arriving a few weeks before her due date, but we are so so thankful that she is healthy in every way, shape, and form. She passed every test thrown at her with flying colors – I guess she just wanted to enter in this world with a fanfare! And that she did, just 5 hours before my own birthday! Definitely nothing less than memorable.

Working Hard and Making Progress!

First things first, I LOVE owning a house! It’s been a looooong process getting there, but now that we’re here, I couldn’t be happier! And I’m sure Nick would say the same thing, too!

We had been looking for a house pretty much nonstop since we got married, and this one couldn’t have been more perfect! Well, perfect in the sense that it has loads of potential, but let’s just say it was definitely an eye sore. Let me draw you a mental picture (mostly because I was terrible at taking pictures of the house before we started making improvements!).
