Last weekend was bright, sunny, and warm! Perfect for selling houses, as the real estate business says. Sure enough, after being on the market for three months, my parents sold our childhood home. We have lived in that home since 1985 and I would be remiss to say that I'm not a little sad. I'm sure I'll reflect more on leaving this home in the future but right now, I'm just so happy for my parents! Jon's mom, Terry, also sold their home on the same weekend. It was a good weekend for the real estate agents! Here is the latest progress on my parents new home; it's coming together fast!!

[Edited to add: We just found out that the completion date of my parent's new home is May 20th which is their anniversary. How perfect is that?!]

I’m a coffee drinking, book reading, laundry procrastinating, husband and children loving, mess of a woman who believes that chips and salsa can fix anything. We have chickens running around the backyard, a mountain of dishes in the sink, and on any given morning, I have at least 10 school forms that need my signature or initials. It’s a crazy life {I prefer to call it controlled chaos}, but its ours.
