Hello? Anyone still out there? If not, I totally don't blame you one little bit! Yes, I'm still alive (thank you so much to all of you who have sent emails/tweets/etc. checking in on me) - just busy soaking up every ounce of life right now. Abby is at the most fun (albeit sometimes very trying) age ever and I just can't get enough of her or our little family. Hence, this little place on the internet has been completely abandoned for the past 8 months or so. I really hope to get back into blogging in 2013, but I've never been one to write just to write so if my heart's not completely in it then that may not happen either. We'll just have to see what life has in store for the future.
As a mini update of sorts, we finally sold our house in September, searched high and low for a new one, found nothing, decided to build, put all of our belongings in storage and are living with my wonderful in-laws until the fateful day when our builder says it's all finished and is officially ours. We're shooting for February or March. We were able to visit my family in Raleigh over Thanksgiving and Abby turned two earlier this month which was celebrated with a Dora/Elmo themed party. Now we're busy with Christmas festivities and beginning new family traditions with our sweet girl since this is the first year she really gets it.
That's about all I have for the moment, so until 2013 (or whenever the mood strikes again) I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
