Hi friends.  Life is well here - chaotic, busy, full - but well.

We've had a lot going on - I thought I'd update the blog with a few ramblings to remember this season of life. 

1. Moving.

Let's just all agree that moving is no one's favorite task.  But the beauty is that moving means we finally found a place to buy.  33 acres, most with water and a 3 bedroom, 2 bath house to call our own.  Or at least, we'll be able to call it that after escrow, appraisals, and closing.  ;)

It's in Stanfield, just a few minutes from the ranch, and even closer to some of our dearest friends.  Right off of the highway, but hidden from public view.

I think we'll find ourselves to live comfortably there, at least for awhile.

We hope to close, install all new flooring, move and be settled in there by the end of the year.  A tall task, but I'm keeping a positive attitude that it can happen.

2. Work.

It's about to get crazier, after a few days of being able to breathe.  Such is the ebb and flow though of my job.  And part of the reason I think I like it so much.

3. Chandler.

Growing.  Our sweet boy is doing well, and is so fun to be with.  He's clapping, and waving, and cheering and just has a great little attitude.  We love him so much.

4. Holidays.

Am I bad sport to say I'm not really thrilled that Christmas is a mere few weeks away?  There are just so many expectations, and I have a feeling we'll be moving into our house the weekend of Christmas, so I'm trying to not create expectations of "Chandler's First Christmas" that I won't be able to achieve....but also trying not to be a scrooge.

My plan is; a tree, a few decorations that are easy to find/hang up/display, and presents.  The rest - well, it will be what it will be.

5. And you?

I hope you are well.  I hope you are living life, and having fun, and surrounded by people who make you happy.

Everyone deserves to be happy.

Keep living the dream friends -


  1. Darcy,
    I'm glad you found a new acreage to call home. Good Luck with moving. Deep breath, I'm sure you will get through it fine. Don't be afraid to ask for a little extra help.

    I'm sure work keeps you on your toes. J is on our local FSA board and up to date on all the stuff that goes on in the office. It's a lot!

    I love the Chandler updates. Don't worry about the first C-mas expectations, Chandlers is a happy and loved little guy and that is the most important. Chances are he will play with wrapping paper and boxes and not be too worried about decor.

    I hope you and the family have a wonderful Thanksgiving! I'm headed to Nebraska. I'll be at Mom and Dad's a few days. Sister is hosting dinner on Saturday. Last summer, her family moved to the farm that Mom grew up on. They fixed up the house and she is excited for us to come visit. I'm excited to see her as it was this time last year when I saw her last. I know Miles has changes a lot in the last year.
