Dusting off

*big swallow. deep breath.*

Hello? Anyone out there? *taps microphone* Does this thing work? 

It's been almost a year and a half since I last wrote on this little part of the Internet. And a lot has happened since I announced we were expecting our rainbow baby

We actually had that rainbow baby. 

He's joy, hope, giggles, and craziness all wrapped up into a ball of blue eyed goodness. We just celebrated his first year around the sun and I just can't believe it. I'm tired, exhausted, and happy. Really happy.

Josh graduated and found a job in Northwest Arkansas, so we decided to put down some roots and buy a house. 

But not just any house. A 1960s house, in a great location, that needs a lot of work. And when I say a lot, I mean A LOT. For the past 10ish years it has been filled with college boy renters who, let's be honest, didn't keep a clean house. And before that, whew. Lots of quick fixes and cover-ups. There is not an inch of space that doesn't need a lot of love. A lot.

In good ole' DIY fashion, we plan to do most of the work ourselves. Floors, bathrooms, kitchen, walls, yard, exterior. *gulp* We are definitely in over our heads.

I've missed writing. I've missed chronicling our adventures. And I've missed sharing our lives. I'm sure it'll take a while to dust this thing off and get into the rhythm again, but I want to be back. So, here I am. I can't wait.
