Life's moldy lemons

Friday, July 24, 2015
Life has a funny way of turning on you when you least expect it.

In fact, I had a very clear image in my head of  how 2015 was going to be and so far, it's nothing like I thought.

One day your employed with a great job, your family is doing great, money problems are almost non-existent, and then boom! Life get's ya.

We have had a very rough 2015 to say the least.

Something pretty big (good or bad) has happen every month so far.

In no way am I posting this to feel bad for myself. In fact, quite the opposite.

I look back on each month and I realize how truly blessed we are. Even through all the curve balls that God has thrown our way, we have managed to continue on as a close family and support and love each other regardless. This year has made Jordan and I closer than ever and has made us appreciate each other and our family's more as well.

A big health scare in my family that really shook us all up. Thankfully, it has been resolved for the most part!

We moved to a new house but along with that came a large sum of money out of our savings account that made February a little hard on our checkbooks.

We got through our money problems and got our little pup of joy, Josie Wales! :)

We lost my uncle unexpectedly which really broke our hearts as well as losing our great friend, Mary, to breast cancer all within a few days of each other. April was by far our roughest month and is something we still find ourselves trying to continue to push through.

I lost my job. Due to losing a big client and big project, the company I was working for had to downsize significantly. Unfortunately, I was one of the ones that had to go. BUT, I'm looking at this as a blessing in disguise because now I get to move on to bigger and better things in a new place to call home!

I got offered a job but had to turn it down because Jordan got offered a kickass job in Mt. Home, AR. Yay and boo! (I'm still upset about having to leave Fayetteville. :( )

Jordan and I celebrated our one year anniversary which was a peak. However, sometimes with a peak come a Grandpa broke his hip but is thankfully recovering and is in good spirits. That was scary!

We move....again. And I'm back to square one when it comes to job searching....again.

This year hasn't exactly gone as planned.

I'm a little nervous but excited to see what the rest of 2015 brings. By the looks of the year so far, hopefully God will bring us good news and no more heartache.

a new adventure ahead

We have exciting news!!!

No, I'm not pregnant.

But, if you follow me on Pinterest, I completely understand how you may have thought that. It's definitely in the near future but for now, we need to take life's adventures one at a time...

Jordan recently got a job offer in Mountain Home, AR with the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission and of course he said yes! 

May I introduce you to our new home sweet home...

Am I excited? Yes and no. I'm sad to be leaving Fayetteville but I'm excited to see what Mt. Home has to offer. 

So, the search begins. We are house hunting, job searching for me, and trying to get everything together here in Fayetteville before the move in a few weeks.

Life is a crazy adventure!

I'm coming back!

I've been completely MIA the last six months. That's a long time to leave without any explanation! So...let me explain just a bit...

1. I got busy. So busy, in fact, that sitting down to type out a blog post was a lot of work in my head. So, I decided I needed a break.
2. There has been a lot of up's and down's (unfortunately more down's) going on the last couple months that I've had to work through. (I will explain further in a blog post soon).
3. A MUCH needed revamp is happening. The blog has a new name that fit's much better.

So why have I decided to get back to it? Because we have some exciting news coming soon and our family and friends circle is so HUGE that it's MUCH easier to keep everyone updated through blogging.

Thanks for being patient with me. You all are the best.
