Hi, Internet.

It's been a while since I've been to this part of the Internet. I feel like I can finally breathe again. We moved out of our little cottage about 4 weeks ago and haven't looked back since. The packing up and sorting through things was harder for me than the actual moving out. By the time moving day came we were so ready and just so excited for what lies ahead.

Kate talks about our old house and wonders why we haven't been back and also asks when we get to go to Tennessee. I can only imagine whats going through that little head of hers. So much change and so much excitement in all of our hearts.

We love our new living set up. All of our rooms are so cozy and all the space is amazing. The kids sleep so much better after playing so hard outside all day. I know it's just a taste of things to come.

I'll let the pictures do the rest of the talking for this post.

Moving Day!
saying goodbye to our sweet house
  
Betcha didn't know we moved to a nudist colony did you?!



just kidding, they're practicing their farming skills
We're so thankful for this time in our life. To live so close to family and really soak in all of the sweet blessings and memories that are being made. We know that our time in California is limited so we are working on our bucket list and enjoying all of our favorite things here. 

I must end this by telling y'all that you will never see my butt in a gym again. That doesn't mean much considering I've been twice in my life but I have been pulling corn stalks and you can't laugh at that until you've done it. I'm going to have the hardest fittest butt in Southern California thanks to our little corn field and the rest of the food that we've been busy picking. Also, we will never be growing corn on our own farm...

See y'all in a few weeks, our summer travels kick off in a few days.

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…
