it's been awhile since i've written so i thought i'd update. we are preparing our house to sell. it's always fun when you pack a box and realize your one year old is pulling all of it out! but, i've moved with four kids before, i can certainly do it again! i've been dealing with some health issues lately. i have surgery next week to remove a lump in my armpit and will be seeing an oncologist. i'm sure it's nothing, after all, i don't have time to be sick. we're going away this weekend....ALONE! can't remember the last time that happened and i am so excited. you can tell we've been married for awhile, we can't wait to sleep in! it's always nice to come home and have actually had a chance to miss the kids.
i turned thirty last week. i spent several months pondering this, freaking out, just a little. and then one day i realized that i have so much to be thankful for, who cares what age i am! i have a wonderful family, a great marriage, and the best friends anyone could ask for. i am finally at a point in my life where i am comfortable in my own skin. considering where the Lord has brought me from, 30 is an accomplishment!
so i'll end with a few pics. the first is my nephew, jonah, wearing a wig my kids put on him. the second is the cake from my birthday party. my good friend, kim, made it. it cracked me up because i've been telling everyone for months that i'm turning 20-10!
