out with the old, in with the new

Happy New Year! Well, I guess I should have said that a few weeks ago seeing as how it's almost February and I've been absent on the blog for quite a while. A LOT has happened in the 6 weeks since I've last blogged.

Here's a run down of the craziness:

We moved.
We decided to not renew our lease at our apartment. The house we were renting before the move to L.A. last year came back on the market and we couldn't pass us getting back into it. My parents own the house so they love when we live there (we take good care of the place!) and we get a great deal on an otherwise expensive house in a nice area. The only stipulation is that we only had a few weeks to pack up and move. 24/7 packing and moving = no time for blogging (plus no internet!). During this short time frame we also had to complete some minor renovations/painting in the new place (i'll share more on that later).
Changing up the blog/shop.
During the break from moving I thought a lot about the blog and my etsy shop. I've been thinking about how both have evolved since I started them, what I want them to be, and how my style, thoughts, and life are expressed here on the blog. I'll talk more about what I plan to do in another post, but lets just say there will be changes coming...
More babies.
Travis and I are beginning to talk about expanding out family with another child this year. We all know this is exciting (and kinda freaking me out!), it's going to be a lot more work, and just another change that 2012 will bring. A lot of my time lately has also been focused on throwing my BFF a baby shower for her 2nd child. Baby D is due in just a few short weeks, and the shower is right around the corner, and we all know how party planning can suck you into it's detailed death grip.
I dropped the ball on sharing with you what I received from my CHWH partner. Ugh, I feel so bad, but the timing was just...not good. I had everything out to photograph her great package and the next day it was all packed up. Sorry Lisa!
So this is where we're at. Another year gone by, but a new fresh start for 2012. I'm looking forward to this year!
