The Time Is Now.

Well after a few years in our comfy, warm, lovely apartment...
The Time Has Come.
Tonight I sit here typing one last post from 'home'. 
Albeit an empty home! 
After two crazy weeks of one of us being on tour (guess which one...), and the other one of us doing tons of last minute "tour management" from home while working two jobs while trying to prepare for a week down south while organizing moving our entire house 15 minutes away...

It is finished. 
Everything is moved. 
Everything is organized.
Plans are made and in place.

We both arrive home from our travels on the same day to a simultaneous day off in our new house that will be fun to unpack together! 
I feel a little nervous, but pretty...blessed at the same time.

Here's to a bit more space and new growth. 
(no ' grand baby' pun intended, mom, I was talking about Don's music career.)

Just Because.

Three weeks ago I was 'hand-delivered' a beautiful autumn sunflower bouquet from my favourite little girl and her mom, my best friend just because they saw my car at work and decided to drop some off. 

Last week I came to work and spied a HUGE bunch of pink cosmos-one of my favourite flowers- in a tiny vase on a table by the door. 

I was thrilled to see a card on the front with my name on it as I walked closer! Those were from a friend at church, just because she heard me rant and rave about cosmos in the spring and knew I liked them.

This week when my mom came over to my house to help me pack (we're in the midst of moving), she met me at the door with an elegant bouquet of lilies all gardeny green and blushing pink petals and no words were needed-just because.

I'm starting to feel a bit spoiled with fresh flowers around me every week.
Spoiled but thankful.
It makes the approaching winter months seem a teeny bit further away.

How To Break My Heart With Cuteness:

Step #1: Look sweet and clean and new.

Step #3: Just blink those big brown eyes
and part your hair to the side.

Bam! I am done. Cuteness overload.
