New Home

Currently, I am sitting at my home, with a beautiful little girl crawling around, bread in the bread maker, laundry is going and I couldn't be happier!!

Two weeks ago our little family finally moved into a home of our own. For the last 1 1/2 years we were living with Dallin's parents. We were so blessed that they were willing to open their home and hearts! We were able to save money and pay off some debt as well as spend a lot of time with our families. We couldn't be more thankful for all that they did! However, as life is, we needed some space of our own to grow our little family.

We were looking for a home to buy, but after a few disappointments and a lot of prayer, we decided that renting would be the best option for us right now. We found a steal of a deal on a beautiful 2 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath townhome in the heart of wonderful Metro West (Orlando). We are 20 minutes from our parents, 5 minutes from the temple and still 30 minutes from Dallin's office (and of course withing 20-30 min of all the theme parks).

We really couldn't be happier with our family and the home that we are making together. In this rough economy we are very grateful that Dallin has a job that is able to support our family and allow me to stay home (except for a few nannying/subing jobs a month) to take care of our amazing daughter, as well as very supportive families that love our daughter as their own!

Check out that hair!

Olivia is learning how to clap and this is the best picture I could get.
