Sunny Summer Days Page

Sunny Summer? I realize that's only in my head right now in late February, but a girl can't help but to dream of the coming days.... but first.

I wanted to write a little about everything that's happening in our world. I think everyone has probably been told in person, so I feel better about writing it here on my blog. Chase has taken a new position at Rolling Hills Community Church. It's still here in middle Tennessee, but as Chase and I both grew up going to Gladeville, it's a huge change. This month has been very emotional, we love the Glade, but we are excited about what God has in the future. In the midst of the change we have put our house on the market. I know many of you have been reading since we first moved in, and you know all about the many, many, many projects we did in this house. I so wish I could give this craft room to someone that would really love it as much as I have.

So there's my excuse for my blog hiatus. Is it good enough? Chase and I would appreciate your prayers as we embark on a new chapter in our lives, and to sell our house.

Alright, so back to those summer days. Chase took this picture of Maddie and I after we walked to PetSmart one day. It's not a long walk, but it was hot. Maddie just laid down after we started back home. We ended up having to carry her home. I'm telling you sometimes it's really nice to have a 5lbs. dog.



I've been hoarding that sheet of Basic Grey Doodlebug paper forever! I finally just had to use it.

With this blog break, I did want you to know that there will still be a Practicing Creativity release next week! It's a great one that Karen designed!

Well, there are definitely some big changes coming up for you. But i'm glad to read that you are looking at things with a positive attitude and that you are happy. Hopefully things will run smoothly with the sale of your home and with your move. Best of luck! I'm sure you'll keep us all posted. :)

Praying for you and Chase!!!

Oh, and on a lighter side, my dogs have done the exact same thing! When they get tired, they just give up!

It sounds like you have some exciting things to look forward to. Change isn't always the easiest thing, but it often brings new growth and possibility that would otherwise be missed. Good luck!

Love your page. It does, indeed, give me a longing for warmer days.
