June update

Hey all! Sorry I've been absent from blogging for a while. We've actually been up to a lot recently, so I thought I'd bring everyone up to speed.

First, my laptop is broken and is off being repaired which is one reason for the lack of posts and also why I haven't been keeping up with your blogs.

Second, we've moved! SURPRISE! We have packed up our home in Tampa and have moved back to Austin. We are extremely sad to leave Tampa and the wonderful friends God provided us while we lived there, but know that He is leading us back to Texas, so we must follow. We bought a house in Austin which was built in 1979. The original owners just moved out and didn't update one single thing in the past 30 years, so they left that job to us. We are having the home completely remodeled (wall texture, kitchen cabinets/appliance, bathrooms, lighting, EVERYTHING) and are living in Marble Falls until the work is completed (hopefully by Aug 1st!).

Well, that's about it for now. I will catch up on posts and on your blogs once my laptop is returned. Hope you are all having a wonderful summer!

Yay! We are only 1.5 hours away! Our house was really outdated also, but we are making strides. We should get together in the Fall! :)

Oh, hey, I found this site and thought you might be interested since it is in your area. I wish we had this in SA!

Wow, that is a surprise! We are in the same boat as you are, although it sounds like you might be finished long before us. So glad to hear that we will be living so close to each other.

Hi Charis! I'm so glad to see you're back in Austin. We have to get the babies together some time. Guess what, #2 is on the way!

I'm so outta the loop! Although I knew that would be your next post. Lost Creek? What an awesome area! That's so exciting and although they didn't do any upgrades, I would be the house is in immaculate condition as they're the only owners. Congrats! I miss Austin!

Hey Charis! We saw y'all at Westover on Sunday, but didn't get a chance to talk. Does this mean the re-model is over, and you're back in Austin?
