Me and My Cuz
I have to note about how much I have loved living in Provo. On Saturday we drove out to Eagle Mountain to buy a Christmas tree for our flower shop and it just so happened to be from a lady that lived in our old complex. I told Scott that there were things that I missed about Eagle Mountain like but mostly I think it's just because it was OUR first house together and how so many memories came from our short but sweet little drive that night. We both agreed that we love how the town home feels more like a house with it's tiny backyard and the fact that we have a front AND a back door and that it's not all on one level. But I think the part that I've loved about living in PROVO the most is the fact that I'm so much closer (or so it seems) to my family. Plus, Dresden has loved seeing his GRANDMA and GRANDPAS more frequently. But the fact that I live a mere 7 minutes from my sister-in-law Beth has been something that I have just loved! I think it's because the both of us are stay-at-home moms with babies not TOO far apart in age and we both share a lot of common interests (cooking, running, interior decorating and recently sewing). Let's just say that I've loved having a close friend so nearby. I thought that the transition to motherhood would be hard having worked and gone to school staying really busy...but, with the help of Beth I am settling in quite nicely to my new role as a mother. THANKS BETHY! Also, I know that Dresden has loved seeing his cute little cousin Smith too so THANKS SMITHY!
AS FOR THE PAST WEEK... I got to go to my beautiful friend Kara's bridal shower where I got to see a lot of old friends that I have struggled to keep in touch with and it was so fun to see how they are all doing well. I can't tell you how happy I am that Kara has found someone that she loves and is going to take care of her. She has been a wonderful friend. Besides that all I can say is I love being a mom! I have been so blessed to have such a wonderful little boy who brings me so much joy. This week he's started to smile more and be awake a lot more adIt truly is amazing how you can just fall in love with something so instantly! Plus, the fact that I have Scott-what more could I ask for? He does such a good job in taking care of our little family. Oh and one more thing... unfortunately I wasn't able to start on sewing my pillows this week, but we'll have to see what next week holds! Until then... toodles!
More photos from a little while ago that I wanted to post.
