New Journey in Life:

Since I last posted, we attended the NOH8 campaign, which I am proud to have been a part of. 

And one of the pictures from The Honest Body Project was released. It's really exciting that this project has now gained national attention and been talked about in tons of places, including Parents Magazine. 

And we had our final playdate with the cousins before we moved.

Sophia even let Aunt Elizabeth french braid her hair finally! She looks so grown up!

We celebrated Mother's Day with a big family dinner at Longhorn, and my brother and his wife officially announced that they are expecting!! Woo hoo!! I have sooooo many projects that I want to make now. 

We spent the next few days packing like a beast. My lord we have a lot of stuff, and we didn't even bring furniture!?

We followed this up with a final dinner with the family before we left. It was a very, very emotional night for most of us. 

The next day, we headed off on our long journey to our new home. 

The girls were sooo good for the vast majority of the drive. I am verrrry grateful for that.

We stopped along the way for lunch in my old home, Tallahassee, and let the girls and dogs get out and play for a bit at Tom Brown Park to let them have a break from all of the driving. 

And after two looooong days of driving, we MADE it!!

We've now been here a little over a week, and have been taking in the sites and trying some of the local grub.

And we've started some new nice habits like taking nice walks most evenings...

and having beautiful fresh flowers at our dining table that we eat together at each night.

Little one has also become increasingly active. She's crawling all over the place (even though she cries most of the time that she realizes she is) and has been climbing up to stand against all of her toys, us, the couch, or whatever she can get near enough to. 


Today we went and got my van inspection done, new registration, and new Texas licenses.

Overall, we are very happy both here in Austin, and here in this beautiful neighborhood that we live in. In other good news, we've already planned for my family's first trip out to visit, as well as two trips home this year! I look very much forward to the future that awaits us here.
