It's been over two weeks since my last post....when I started this blog last year, I intended on posting every couple of days at least. I didn't quite realize how difficult maintaining a blog can be. I have read other blogger's posts about the struggles of blogging and the pressure to keep content interesting and frequent, but it wasn't until I started a blog myself that I understood. Even with my very small group of followers, I feel guilty when I don't post anything, but if I post something when I'm not ready, I feel like I am forcing it. In addition to my lack of content lately, I have been putting off putting time into this little site, because I am working on a total design re-vamp that I am hoping will re-motivate me to dedicate energy to blogging. I just haven't had the time to put it all up yet. The result of this has been a lack of posts.
I have so, so, so many projects coming up that I can't wait to share, but right now I am in a weird in-between stage. Once we get moved into our new place, I know we are going to have lots of exciting things to post about. But right now life consists of a lot of cleaning out of closets and trips to Goodwill.
Speaking of the big move - the movers come in 13 days! I cannot believe it. We learned about Kerstan's job in Denver almost NINE months ago, after his internship. I don't know where the time went. He finished his thesis today, and he starts his new job in Denver in just a few weeks. I, of course, have made the entire situation far more stressful than it needs to be by putting all this pressure on myself. I have been frantically cleaning out every inch of our condo in preparation for our move. I am so excited about our new loft, and my desire for everything about it to be perfect has caused me lots and lots of totally unnecessary anxiety. But it will all be worth it once we get settled. We had the chance to see our place the weekend before last when we went up to visit and finalize all our plans. It exceeded my expectations, and I am even more anxious to get moved in now than I was before. We have two short weeks to say goodbye to all of our friends and the wonderful city of Austin before we beginning our new adventure. Oh! And also I got a job doing something I am so excited about. I can't wait to share all the details soon!
So aside from crazy moving preparations, life has been really great lately. Since I have been so quiet around here the last couple weeks, I'll try to sum it up with a group of photos from my phone.
The wildflowers are blooming here in central Texas, and they are BEAUTIFUL!

The new coffee table Kerstan built for our new loft. We found this really neat wood at a local antique shop, and my talented husband turned it in to a really unique piece for our new place.
Oh look, another picture of my dog.
Last weekend we went to San Antonio to celebrate the upcoming wedding of my brother-in-law. We got to enjoy a relaxing afternoon along the river walk downtown, and the weather was absolutely perfect.
I had the best Mexican food of my life, along with the "best margarita in Texas." It was delicious.
I've seen the Alamo a few times, and I am always a little disappointed at how small it is, but it's neat to see nonetheless.
So excited to call this beautiful city home!
I am so excited about living in Denver, but I was not so thrilled about 10 inches of snow in April during our recent visit.

Life has been good to me. I'm looking forward to the next few weeks and all the new things that are in store for us!
