Sorry for the long silence around here! It's been so long, that my blogging voice (that's totally a thing) feels stiff and awkward. Like my fingers did when I sat down at the piano today and tried to play and old favorite. I was so hoping to be able to post once a month and keep you all updated. I have a zillion pictures of Ivy Rose being adorable that I wanted to share. But find time, I could not. So you'll have to be happy with these pictures. :smile:
We went for a hike on the Shoreline trail at Farragut State Park last week. It was really fun for all three of us to get out and do something fun together. Ivy loves water and really enjoyed getting her toes wet.
Ivy can crawl now (very fast), pull herself up and stand, she's got her first two teeth coming in, has discovered she can't always have what she wants, and she gets into EVERYTHING (did I mention she crawls very fast??). And she is the most adorable, sweet, beautiful little girl ever! Amen.
I've been kept busy not just by our little princess, but by an insane amount of cleaning and de-cluttering. We are getting our house ready to sell, hence the cleaning. I had not idea how much work that would be, but we are so, so close to being done. Which is good, since we need to have the house listed by August 3rd.
Why are we selling? We need more space. Not house space, but more acreage. Five acres is a nice size, but not for what we want to do. Which is raise sheep (lots of them), and pigs, and chickens, and goats, and hay, and...you get the idea. I'll let you know when we find our dream location (we do have one in mind, but nothing is official...yet).
So what is new with all of you? I want to know!
