I'm Still Alive!

Hello friends! I am still here! I have been away from the ol' blog for much longer than I intended. Where to begin!? So much has happened since I last posted. I have two big announcements.

First of all, we have moved! We are no longer renting the cute, little cottage. It all came about when our landlords mentioned to us that they were going to look into selling the place. It wasn't final, but another opportunity came up for us and we decided to take it. As charming as the cottage was, we didn't want to be stuck without a good home in case it did sell. It was actually neat how our new home came up. A couple in our church were going to be moving away for about 3-5 years and wanted to rent out their place. However, they had a bad experience renting a home in the past, so they were hoping to rent to people they knew. Enter Patrick and I.

Compared to our tiny, 700 square foot (ish) cottage, this place is huge (though pretty much anything feels big compared to the cottage)! It doesn't have the same charm and character, but it is still a beautiful home with some great features and I LOVE having a full size kitchen, with a full size fridge and cupboard space! Siiigh! You may not know this, but at the cottage there was only a mini-fridge and there was hardly ANY space for food storage. I definitely don't miss the size of our last place, it was starting to get a bit crowded and I was a little tired of trying to shove and stack things in the closets. I look forward to showing it to you bit by bit in the next little while! Here's a little preview of the outside of the house when we first moved...

There is room for us to spare at our new home which is good because come January 2012, we will be welcoming a wee baby into our little family. That's right, the next big announcement is I'm pregnant! Patrick and I are very excited. I have just started my second trimester (I'm between 14 and 15 weeks) and there is a little baby bump starting to show- especially after I have eaten! It is still sometimes hard to believe! Here is the ultrasound image of our babe at 10 weeks...

I was pretty tired in the first trimester and I lacked a lot of motivation, but I'm starting to feel more energy, even though I still nap pretty much every day. I've started doing some creating again and I am hoping to get started on some projects for the baby's room. The time is actually going by faster than I imagined! I'm looking forward to blogging about the creation of the nursery.

Anyway, I hope you all have been well and enjoying your summer! I smell some breakfast cooking downstairs and that made me mighty hungry. Have a lovely Thursday!
