Brady and I have moved a lot in our married life. It’s exhausting and causes me a lot of anxiety. Packing is the worst and I just want to settle somewhere and not have to pack ever again. It’s hard work.
Feeling like I needed to cram in all of my goodbyes was stressful!! There just isn’t enough time in the day or the week or the month! I ended up with a pinched sciatic nerve the last couple of days of work and that was really hard. At my job, I’m on my feet my entire shift and I’m lifting boxes, climbing on ladders, stocking stuff on shelves, walking around… just constantly moving and it really made the pain worse. I tried to tough it out because I didn’t have time to go see a doctor.
I’m so grateful to my mom and my husband who helped me pack our stuff because I would have gone crazy if I had to do this myself. Before taking off on our new adventure, I was able to visit with my cute friend Taelor and her little girls!! They’re so stinkin’ cute. I’ve never met them so I was really excited when we got together for lunch and a treat after! It’s so good to catch up with Tae in real life, I miss her so much!!
So so so so grateful for good people in my life. People that love and care about me. So many people online too! I have amazing online friends as well as IRL friends! ;) My life is one big blessing and I am doing my best to see that each day!
The other day, my sisters and I got together to do some Christmas crafting. I had so many ideas of what to do but decided on just two. I was going to make a “Santa Cam” for my sister, my mom and myself. I think it’s the cutest thing ever! Buuuuuut mine ended up looking terrible and nothing like the photo I saw on Pinterest. Haha!! I laughed a good laugh! I love crafting with my sisters! We enjoy crafting together! Also, please take note of the other crafts in this photo, my sisters are sure talented!
On Saturday, my cute friend Shaylee had a baby shower
for her little girl due in February!
Shaylee and I worked together for the Church.
I haven’t seen her since I left my job there. :(
It was so fun to see her childhood home,
meet her family & friends, and celebrate
this cute new little one they are adding to the family!
Shaylee is so humble, positive, and grateful.
It’s very contagious, and whenever I’m around her,
I feel better about life. :)
I’m going to miss her so much!
I can’t wait to meet her little one,
I’ll definitely be making the trip down
to meet this cutie pie.
Love you shay! You’re going to be a great mom!
I am so grateful for my friends.
I love each and every one of them!
I know that I am loved by many,
even when I feel so alone.
I’m going to miss so many of them when I move.
Thank goodness my hometown isn’t tooooo far away! ;)
Also, saying the word “hometown”
makes me feel like I live in the country,
but I don’t.
