 Thats right ladies and gentleman, were making a HUGE move!
After much thought, contemplation, prayer, and with hope we've decided to make this tiny little podunk, country town our new HOME! And, we couldn't be more excited!
Thats right, this ZERO stoplight, no big grocery store, no gas station town will be our destination!
 This is the Eagles Nest cafe, the only place to eat in town! But if you ever drive through, its definitely the place to EAT! Its the most amazing HOME cooked food you'll ever have (well next to my mom and dad's cooking of course!)
 This is the town store its called the Shaw Merc, Can you believe they still open a "tab" for people to put groceries on? Only in Idaho!
This is the town playground(which is right across from our new house) I think we may find Noah here all the time!
This is the school! Its Pre-K to 12th grade!!! can you believe that? I graduated from a class of over 400 people, the graduating classes here range from 10-20 students!!!!

WHy? some of you are asking are we making this our home? We'll I plan to answer that question in some future posts...
LETS just begin with, its SAFE here, my FAMILY is here, and Noah will have room to ROAM here... 
We are making some big life changing decisions and hope that things will go well, although we are closing one chapter in our lives we are not going with intent to forget our pasts or people we love here. We will deeply miss our family here in CAlifornia!
Its a big stretch to go from the big sacramento CITY to tiny little Idaho!
But I have no doubt that this is where we need to be!
All prayers are welcomed as we make this big move into our new future!

P.S. Hang in there with me as we make this move, as I may go a few days with NO INTERNET to put up some posts, Thank you to all my loyal readers! I love you all!!!

Dear Noah

To Noah, my best friend, my partner in crime, my itchy itchy baby, my little prince: 

I’m truly inspired by you baby Noah. You make my days worth living, my moments of sadness disappear, you make my life make sense, I don’t think I can adequately describe the pure joy I get in knowing you are my son. You are mine. I can only imagine how our Father in Heaven must feel and I’m so grateful that I get a glimpse of His unconditional love.

I love the way, you smile. When I say “do your cheese face” you get the most incredible silliest happy face I’ve ever seen, my heart literally melts with pride and happiness that I have you.

 I love the way you bring me book after book after book every morning for me to read to you, 
I swear you will be the smartest kid like ever! 

I’m proud that you can recite your ABC’s at two years old, I am proud that you know how to sing “popcorn popping” and “Wiseman” word for word, as well as itsy bitsy spider and twinkle little star. YOU TRULY AMAZE ME.

I love that you have this incredibly difficult swirl on the top of your head, you may hate it someday when doing your own hair but it makes my heart melt.  

I love that you have MY eyelashes, they are super long ,  every girl wants them!  I sometimes watch you bat those incredibly cute eyelashes and melt and you have no idea you do it!

 I love that you cant wait for your daddy to come home, that when you see him you get so happy and with the biggest smile on your face you squeal in excitement! It almost makes me want to leave so I can get that kind of greeting when I get home! 

I love when you know you are naughty, you look at me and say “time-out” and I melt, how am I suppose to be mad at that?!!! 

I think you totally have me wrapped around your tiny handsome itchy toddler fingers, and I wouldn’t have it any other way!

I want you to know that I love you, I will fight for you when your not strong, I will help you up when you are down, I will hold your hand when you are lonely,
  I will listen when no one else will. I will be your cheering crowd when you make BIG accomplishments, or even when you do LITTLE accomplishments.  
I will be your #1 fan no matter what you do, where you choose to go, no matter what path you take, I will be there coaxing you and will never give up on you. You are the bestest little friend a mommy can ask for.
  I love you baby Noah!

This is us. We are an eternal family.
 This blog is about life, being a mommy, crafting and sewing (my new favorite things!)
& everything in between!

My goals for this blog:
First I would like to share my "moments" that I have as a mom in hopes that I can touch other mommies lives, and hopefully get that in return. I want other moms to not feel like they are going through this journey alone, we all have crazy, intense,event filled lives!
Second, I would to like be to be able to share what I love doing, I want to share my craft projects, our new home were moving into and projects that come with decorating our it, & life lessons learned in between.
Third, I have  been SO inspired by so many great ladies and I hope I can do that in return!!!
