Things have been crazy this week.

Last weekend, the husband and I decided to go look at houses.

I proceeded to fall in love with one of the houses. LOVE!

So, we are entertaining the idea of putting in an offer on this house that I love (did I mention I love it??), while simultaneously getting our home ready to go on the market.

[I have no idea if I'm supposed to say all of this before it even happens, but I have a habit of not  doing what you're "supposed" to do.]

Anyway, if you've ever done anything like this---you know it's a lot of work. If you've never done anything like this---Friend, it's a lot of work!

So, I have a lot to smile about---a lot to be thankful for.

Even if we don't get the house, or put ours on the market. It's fun to hope and dream. To imagine.

Wowza...thinking about a new house??!! That's huge! We sorta-kinda dream about it from time to time, but we haven't gone so far as to look. I know that's super fun, though!

How sweet to see one babe helping another after she fell.

And YEA for nap time improvement!!!

Hope you have a great weekend, Julia!
