And the end of our first chapter book...

We woke up this morning in a home that is no longer ours. A home that we basically built from the ground up, a home that welcomed us home from our honeymoon as husband and wife, a home that welcomed both of our babies home from the hospital in, a house that was made into a home 6 years ago.
Escrow closed on this sweet little home of ours yesterday, we are almost to the last page in this storybook and like any good ending, there are tears. Happy and sad, we are so excited for what the next leg of the journey has in store for this adventure that we're on and a bit sad letting go of our beginning. We've learned very well these past couple of years that you can't hold onto things forever so letting go of this part of our life is bittersweet.

Thank you to my momma, Susan Parker for making this real estate transaction
 SO easy & smooth.
We are absolutely humbled by how faithful the Lord has been to us. Everything we have asked for has been done and more. This is a walk of faith and we couldn't have more peace in our hearts than we have now. This is an amazing place to be, letting go and following as He leads. 

Beautiful days are ahead. We're savoring our last days here on Winfield Court.
For there are still memories to be made and tons of boxes to be packed.

Celebrating 10 years..

Chris and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary on October 6th! We celebrated today by spending the entire afternoon and evening together, kid free.  I found a killer deal for couples massages on Groupon and learned that if a deal looks too good to be true, it is.  Things we've learned after 10 years of marriage; don't take yourself too seriously, laughter is the secret to a good time and chocolate makes everything ok. 

A healthier me.

Remember my Trust your gut  post?I feel like a whole new girl since I wrote that a month ago.  So many things have been confirmed and I feel like my happy healthy self again. 
All because of two things; 1. The gallbladder cleanse that I posted about.  Literally saved my gallbladder and my sanity.  No more stomach pain! And I can drink wine and margaritas without pain again! 🙌🏼
2. I found out that I have a sensitivity to gluten. It's still a mystery to me as to how I developed this but all I know is that when I do have gluten my joints hurt, I get awful headaches and an upset stomach along with bloating. 
Back to my first post about this... I took a "before picture" thinking I was going to 5-10 pounds and then post my "after" picture. 😂😂😂
Truth is, there are still plenty of calories in gluten free food. The other truth is I'm 80-20 gluten free. I still enjoy a few non-gluten free treats here and there (and then pay for it later). 
I love food. I reward myself wit…

Trust your gut

If you've followed me on Instagram for a while you've seen that I've been struggling with pain, nausea and some other lovely side effects every single time I put something in my mouth. 😭I've been in the ER, to a specialist and was about to go in for a hidascan before I canceled it 20 hours before I was to go in.  I was uneasy about the scan in the first place. I knew it was going to show issues with my gallbladder. I had every symptom. I also knew that the next step after the scan was surgery to remove my gallbladder. I know it's an organ that isn't quite necessary but being a mom with 4 small babes, surgery wasnt the best option.  I mean it would be nice to have an excuse to lay around for a bit but let's be real, that wouldn't even happen. 🤦🏼‍♀️ #momlife I felt this super strong thing come over me the morning before to scan telling me to cancel it and change my lifestyle a bit.  I love food y'all. That's no surprise. I have 17 pounds to lose to…
