Still working on a lot of these, and some will not be possible for a few years. I hope y'all are enjoying this lazy Sunday afternoon. It is really cold here in Missouri today. We woke up with the windows open and couldn't get out of bed it was so cold! I changed out our closets yesterday, so from now on it is long pants and Dansko (cowboy boots for Marty) weather. Enjoy a cozy, relaxing Sunday!

Meredith,
Thanks for linking up today and updating your list. You've been busy... I'd say just moving to St. Louis is HUGE enough for six months!!

Hope you and Marty are doing well. Jake and Amanda were here this weekend, and we asked about you! I have a good friend who's husband graduated from Covenant two years ago and is not working at a church in Fredericksburg, and a new couple in our church who just graduated this past May. Seems like the "it" place to be!

Miss you so much!

ok you didnt learn to cut my hair. You tried and freaked out and almost cried because of it. It was not a good experience for you or me.
