Though we've only been here in Utah for a little over 2 years we love it here, and are happier than we have ever been. We love our house, we love our neighborhood, we love our neighbors, we love our school, we love our church, but mostly we love being so close to both of our families. I could keep going and going on about why we love it here (and why this is the perfect place for us) but it just makes me sad to think about it. We really thought when we moved here that Utah would be our forever home. But life stepped in, and my forever home is now up for sale.
I've been trying really hard to look on the bright side of this curve ball. I'm trying to put on a happy face, but to tell you the truth I've probably cried more in the last two months than I have in the last two years. I'm pretty much mourning this move. But I know that we can be happy anywhere, and that we can find friends anywhere, so I'm truly hoping that we love Albuquerque. So if you have anything good to say about New Mexico please, please speak up. Or if you know of any good neighborhoods that I should be looking for houses in, please leave me a comment.
But for now we're still here and life keeps chugging along. This last week was my son Dallas' 9th birthday. I decided not to let the mood of this move put a damper on his birthday. So we got the family (all of them) together at my In-law's house for a weenie roast over the weekend. We had such a good time with everyone (that's what makes it so hard to leave this place).
Anyway on to happier thoughts! In my world birthdays are definitely a time for celebrating, and this sweet boy of mine deserves the happiest of days.
This party wasn't exactly Fancy Nancy, but that might actually be what made it so great. We gathered everyone together, and I mean everyone. Black sheep and all.
I snuck in a few shots of my little family before the fun began.
Then when the whole crew showed up it was party time.
I think everyone had a good time, I know I did. But most importantly I think he did.
Happy Birthday Dallas!
