No, I'm not dead. I feel like I've been in a funk the past few weeks.... well, rather, I know I've been. This week is better. I'm feeling more positive and, well, happy. This past weekend was really fun... on Friday night Ryan, my parents and I went to a "tasting" at Hurd Orchards, the place where we go apple picking every year. I had never done anything like that, it was really fun and a cool experience. Plus they gave us all of the recipes of all of the different foods that were served that evening, and the applesauce cake they served was TO DIE FOR. I will be sure to share the recipe soon. Seriously, I had like 4 pieces (they were small, hehe). I even had my dad and Ryan bring me a piece so I didn't look like a freak and a pig. We also had a fall harvest party on Saturday night for our small group from church. It was super fun, and I can't tell you how good it feels to finally feel part of a church again. Ryan and I haven't been able to find that in the 6/7 years we've been out of our parents' homes and "on our own." We've wanted it for so long, and we are so excited to be involved and connected in a church that we feel welcomed in and feel like we fit into. Trust me, we've sampled MANY, MANY in this area... it almost seemed hopeless for awhile. Yet, God knew what He was doing... He tends to do that. :) Anyway, I've been feeling like I'm coming down with something these past few days... I slept from 10:30 pm to 10:30 am last night and this morning, luckily I didn't have to go into work until 12 today! I'd better go rest up some more and keep trying to fend off all of the sickness the kids keep bringing home from school.... if I could only get off the couch and get Calla to stop walking on the keyboard.... :)


  1. Aw I hope you are feeling ok. I always hated the nasty things the kids brought home from school during the winter.

    I am SOOO glad you guys have found a church. I know it has been something you have desperately wanted.

    Love you tons. See you Thursday at Butt-Kicker.

  2. Hope you're feeling better and taking time to rest. I'll miss seeing you tonight.
    love you!

  3. I'm glad you are back! I was in the same funk last month! It's nice to have a church to go to with new friends to make there.

    I can't wait for your recipe's!! The last ones were amazing.

    I hope you feel better.

  4. I totally know how that is.. I have to try to keep somehting in the future to look forward to or I get really down. In those times.. Blogging is not top priority.. Thanks for the post though! HOpe you feel better soon.

  5. I feel you on your funk. I have settled in on my own. I am glad to hear that you are coming out of yours though. I hope you get feeling better too.

  6. oh, your comment made me cry(in a good way) i wish you lived near me and we could go get some ice cream or get together for that applesauce cake(it sounds so good) i hope you are feeling better. i am trying to be thankful for everything i have, but it has been difficult lately...
