Wow! It sure has been awhile since I last posted! I just wanted all my blog readers to know that I am still here and I plan to start blogging regularly again very soon.

Life has been full of distractions over the past month. Between Jeremy, Spencer, and me we took turns being sick through mid-January. Something about having your face hurt from sinus pressure just takes the blogging energy right out of ya! Then I made a trip to Utah with my mom and sister to attend a women's conference and spend a little girl time together.

While I was out of town, Jeremy called me to say that there had been a fire at our house (we live with my in-laws currently)! I'll admit I didn't believe him at first. We were very lucky. The fire was contained to the sun room at the back of the house and we didn't lose much. Everyone got out of the house ok and the house mostly sustained smoke damage. It could have been MUCH worse and I continue to remind myself everyday that we are blessed. My family was certainly protected that night.

We have been living in a hotel while things are being cleaned up and repaired at our house. The hotel will be our home for several more weeks...I am trying to keep a positive attitude. Living in a hotel is not my favorite thing. But I am grateful :). Life will go on. We will be back in our house soon enough. And I will be blogging again someday soon...until are just a few pictures my father-in-law took of the fire damage.

My whole spray paint collection was destroyed :(.
I did most of my spray painting in the sun room.
I'm sure having all those cans out there helped fuel some of the fire too...
