Ever since Halloween, I have been creating fall decor for my house and have been loving it. I didn’t have any Thanksgiving decorations for some reason and obviously that needed to be fixed!
A few free pumpkins, a trip to Michaels and a few nights of creating later, I was done. Scott is gone a lot lately and we only see each other for about an hour or two a night before we go to sleep; so this helped take up some of the time alone with Vivi. She loved sitting next to me painting pumpkins, spreading glitter around the house, or coloring while I worked. Any way, it was fun and I love how my house looks now. I need to have a Fall party or something!
This year for Thanksgiving we are headed to Seattle and I can’t wait! We will be with Scott’s family for a whole week and it will be so nice. I only have a handful of weeks of work left before I quit, but this last month or so has been pretty rough. I am ready to be done and somehow the 6 & 1/2 weeks I have left can’t go quick enough! Each day feels like forever; but being pregnant probably doesn’t help that either. I will miss it in some ways, but it will be so nice to simplify my life and focus on my family more.
Lately Scott and I feel so grateful for all that we have. Scott is so close to graduating and we have been so blessed while he’s been in school. Blessed that I could work and provide, blessed to have such a perfect little girl, blessed to have a warm, happy house and blessed to have another baby on the way. This chapter in our lives is ending soon and although it makes me a little anxious, I am grateful and know that God will provide for us as he always has.
