Family News

I read in this month's edition of Real Simple that daffodils mean "new beginnings" or that change is coming. Coincidentally, we have had jars full of daffodils displayed around our house over the past few long, hard weeks we've had.

I've been hiding behind recipes and how-to's on this blog for the past few weeks because it's been hard to know what to share, but since this is primarily a tool we use to include people on our life, I guess it's time for an update.

Matt and I are packing up our little farm house and moving ourselves out to Alabama for the summer to be with his family. With heavy hearts and tear-filled eyes, we are facing the unbearable pain that comes when cancer is taking over a loved one. Moving out there is not the hard part, in fact, we can't get out there fast enough, but we are bracing ourselves for what we'll see when we get there.

We are so, so thankful to have the opportunity to go out there. Matt's work and our landlord have been incredibly compassionate with us and depending on how quickly our weary hands can pack, we will be gone in two weeks.

Feeling overwhelmed is an understatement, so forgive us if we lose track of social media for a while as the tunnel-vision sets in...
