Hello blogging world!!

Oh my.  It's been a while since I've blogged.  The past year has been a crazy one full of changes and the blog was the last thing on my mind. 

After much prayer, Mr. U left the ministry.  For now.  We do not know what the Lord has in store, but last January (2012) he started working for a computer company.  He's always loved computers but never dreamed the Lord would have him doing it full time.  This involved us leaving the town we lived in for 14 years just outside Augusta, GA, and returning to where we grew up- Atlanta.  We NEVER thought we'd be living here again, so imagine our surprise when the Lord worked this out!!! 

When Mr. U started his job in Atlanta in January of last year, the girls and I stayed in the parsonage until  September.  The church was very nice to let us stay there that long.  We moved in with my parents in September and closed on our house (our FIRST house!!) in December!!  We are finally homeowners!!  It's been a loooooong journey, but we are SO happy to be all together AND to own our own home, too!!

I hope to share any good recipes I happen upon or maybe even homemaking tips.  I DO love making our house a home!!

Happy Homemaking!!!

I've missed you! Sounds like you've had your plate full without adding blogging. Looking forward to hearing more from you in the coming days. :)

I have often wondered what happened after I received the e-mail from you oh so long ago asking about my babysitting and your mention of Mr. U's possible job change. I am so happy that you all are close to family and together. Wow! That was a long time to have been apart.

I imagine that leaving the ministry was a tough decision. I firmly believe Mr. U can be a champion for Lord even at a computer company!

Looking forward to seeing more post from you. I hope you share bits and pieces of you home. You have pinned some great things I would love to see how you are using them.

Welcome back!

Hi Tammy!!
I've still followed your blog. Your little girl is a sweetie! And your sewing continues to amaze me!!!

Melissa Ward!
How are you? Please email me! Let me know next time y'all are in town visiting family!!

Hi Wendi!!
OOoh yes that question about babysitting WAS a while ago, wasn't it?? And yes, leaving the ministry was a massively huge decision. We've met other families that have gone through the same thing. All struggling to do exactly what the Lord wants. Very strange transition time for us, BUT the Lord is sovereign, right? :) Oh, pinterest. LOVE! Don't always do everything I pin! LOL!! Lots of dreaming, you can be sure!!
