WELCOME! Here is my not-terribly-eloquent attempt to grow closer to God via... blogging. Unfortunately for you, I'm not sure what that means either. I guess we'll find out!

I'm 30 years old, married to an IT Guy and a stay-at-home-mom to two spectacularly gorgeous children. While we attend Mass on Sunday mornings, I spend the entirety of the Eucharistic Prayer focused on making sure the baby uses her crayons on the bulletin, not the pew

What a beautiful post. I am so happy that you started this blog, despite your initial misgivings.

I am praying for you guys as you embark on this next stage of your life...one realtor walk through at a time!


We want to be settled too. This house is hopefully our Forever House. I can't wait until I feel like I'm from Denver. I love that my kids will REALLY be from Denver.


There's something really sweet and deep about this post. God is so faithful, it really is amazing when we step back and see how far He has brought us.
I'm a bit horrified to realize that I have turned into one of those people who doesn't stay in one place for very long... the longest we've lived in one house was 4-5 years, I think. And my poor oldest child has changed school districts 3 times, and had to go to a new school every year for the last 3 years (2 in the same district, but pretty much all different kids). I always thought I'd be one of those people who buys a nice forever-ish house in the country and raises the kids there and even grows old in that one house. And now I realize it's already too late for that. And I'm kind of bumming myself out here. But all that to say... I think it's a nice thing, to want a forever house. :)

And don't worry too much about the walk-through, it's not as bad as when they do it on HGTV.


This made me tear up a bit, and then you cracked me up with moving to Siberia. Lovely. There are so few experiences that I can look back on and say the outcome of the difficulty at hand was 100% negative. It's like God DOES actually know what he's doing. Just today at the end of my workday I was thinking about my previous boss and how things ended horribly there. I was thinking I was happy to have learned those lessons at a place I was at least leaving anyway, so that I can better handle the workworld in my new place.

Anyway I could comment about so much about this post, but suffice to say that it's lovely all over and has even inspired me to get off my duff and go for leisurely run.
