this is my happy face

Thursday, April 21

First of all, shout out to Snapchat for providing a filter that's allllllmost representative of my feelings on this fine day.  My mouth could be a TOUCH bigger I think. To truly capture it.
BUT WE HAVE A JOB, HOUSTON.
HOUSTON, WE HAVE A JOB.

It's all been a whirlwind of a week. Tyson got the offer, we accepted, we partied, I got mastitis, we had our 8th anniversary and today we made our first offer on a home. (IS THIS REAL LIFE??) A sense of overwhelming gratitude and excitement has taken over my entire soul. During a tour of one of the homes we looked at, I just stood in the kitchen window and imagined watching our children run through the backyard while I prepare dinner or walk around with no pants on or do whatever it is you do in your very own kitchen, and the tears just came. It's finally happening. I mean, someone else DID end up beating us to the house we put an offer on, but the sun is stillll shining. And the homes are popping up like daisies. And we have a job, and the world feels like our freaking oyster right now.

I'm so happy.

Definitely no pants. Not a necessity when you're at home.

Congratulations to Tyson! And to you! He is so lucky to have a wife that fully supports him.

Ditto others, I'm a long time reader (I've basically stopped reading any blogs as of late, except yours) but have never commented--I am just so happy for you guys. I'm so glad we get to peek in on this sometimes difficult but amazingly beautiful, sweet life of yours, and to get to enjoy your witty, eloquent, truly sincere and down-to-earth voice. Keep it up. Good luck with this new step!
