Life is sweet. (An update on our life)

Life is seriously so sweet. There are so many amazing things happening in our life, and we couldn't think of a better way than to celebrate with ice cream. As I looked over the table at my husband and my beautiful daughter enjoying their strawberry shortcake sundaes, I couldn't help but feel butterflies. It's that nervous and excited feeling you get when the thing you really want is finally going to be yours. It's overwhelming, and happiness just oozes out of you. Ya feel me?

It's been a crazy fall y'all. First, did I mention how crazy fast this school year is flying by? Like hello, Thanksgiving is next week, what?!?! Also, it's been an incredible school year, my students are the best, my school is the best, and my co-workers? Yup, you guessed it, the best!

On top of having such an amazing school year, during the busy month of October, my family and I snuck off to Florida to celebrate both the Mr.'s and my little mini me's birthday at Universal Studios, and it was the best time I've had at an amusement park, and hello HARRY POTTER! (Yes, we've been to Disney, but Universal just had more rides, I think.) And if that's not enough, the week after we came back, my husband and I decided to sell our house, and as we ventured out looking for a new home, we found a community we loved and decided to build! We've never done it before, and it's already proving to be such an incredible experience.

Clearly, there are so many things happing, and although some are BIG and feel scary at times, I know that we are in such a good place, we are blessed, and our hard work is paying off. We couldn't be more excited to embark on this adventure, and we owe so many thanks to our family and friends for all their love, support and motivation. So yeah, life is super sweet, and I hope yours is too! 

Now, I'm off to enjoy thanksgiving break with my mini me, and I want to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving! :)

I'll be posting more about our community and about the process and just more about the things I'm currently loving, and how we are simplifying our life. Until then... I'm sending you lots of love!
