An attitude of gratitude

November 17, 2010

My heart is so full today!

Thank you all so much for the congratulations, this has been something I've been working toward for a long time. Initially, this year, I had made it a goal to be published in a magazine, and when that happened, I told Ryan, "I guess it's time for a new goal." My next goal was then to make a design team. It looks like I need a new scrappy goal now.

I'm so thankful for the family and friends that are such a great support to us. With this pending move, I know I've spent a lot of hours worrying and whining to family, friends and anyone who will listen. But, I am assured this is the right move for us. Things just keep falling into place and all percieved obstacles are moved out of our way so easily.

When we first found out we were moving to Idaho, I was worried about moving into a place, sight unseen. I did some searching online, showed Ryan my favorites, called a few places. Boom! 2 days later we have an apartment. Then I was worried about a preschool/daycare for Zoe. Same as above, a little searching, a few calls, Boom! Done. So many other things have followed that same pattern, it's such a blessing.

Just last night we found out Ryan was awarded a partial tuition scholarship for Winter semester. We were totally taken by surprise.

We're getting anxious to go and sad to leave. But, happy we know we're going where we need to.

On a totally unrelated note....

Here's a page I finished last night.


I love the pictures the Meghan took of Zoe. Lots of cute facial expressions.
I'm in love with that embossed cardstock, I'd love to order a ream of it. Such a simple detail that adds so much!

Happy Wednesday!

XOXO,
Holly & Co.

Okay your new scrappy goal should be...take all of Jamie's stuff to Idaho and finish books for the cutest, practically nephews of yours, EVER!!! No? Not biting? Well I'll settle for some iChat time and some seriously long phone calls! Life won't be the same without you upstairs but I am so happy for you both to be taking this journey! GO RYAN!
