It's been awhile. Am I still allowed to blame my unexpected and unexplained absence on moving four months ago? Probably not. Oh well.

Lots has been going on around here, but mostly I didn't feel much motivation to visit the blog. In fact weeks went by that I never even looked at it. The break was kind of nice.

There has been too much going on to even try to recap everything in one post. But becoming an aunt to the absolute cutest baby boy ever and starting the building process on our house definitely are at the top of the list.

It has been amazing to see this...

turn into this.

And actually, I took that picture a couple of days ago. Audrey and I drove by this morning and the windows are in, the window trim is up and they were putting on the siding. Due to a delay with the truss company the roof will be done next week.

My parents built the house we grew up in almost entirely by themselves. The building process of that house shapes a big part of my brother's, sister's and my childhoods. From the time my parents started until we moved in was years so it is absolutely mind-blowing to me how quickly this project is moving along. They started working on our house September 10th. It hasn't even been two months and so much has been done.
