A Little Life Update

The giveaway ended a little over a week ago.Thank you to everyone who entered and gave feedback!Keep an eye open for my next,cause I'm pretty sure I'll do at least one more this year.

On a side note,I've been really stressed out cause we still haven't found a place to live.We have 20 days left to find a place and pack unless there is some way we can stay here a little longer.We found a few good places,and one was like perfect and we really thought we were going to get it,but it fell through. :/ I check craigslist like every few hours,and the newspaper weekly.I'm really not sure how all of this is going to work...*sigh*

Ok,onto something more cheerful!This weekend I went,with my mom,to a women's Aglow first one.It was out at the Sis-Q Meadows ranch,and I went there when I was 10 for a church kids camp thing.It was sooo beautiful!The air was mountain and beach air combined..seriously.There was a swimming hole,a river,and a pond.The cabins were really nice.So were the women there!Lots of hugs and prayers and talking,which I love.Of course. :) haha.I made some new friends there.
I tried sleeping outside for a bit the second night,since it was so pretty out,but it got too cold and around 4 am,I went back inside.But before I even tried to go to sleep,I laid down on the grass and looked at the big starry sky and watched some deer and fawns that were 15 feet away.When I finally did go to bed,under the oak tree where we had laid our cots,I saw two shooting stars. :) (We being my mom and one of the new friends).
It was nice to get out of the house and get my mind off the whole moving business.
I may post some pictures I took later when I have time...maybe share a bit more about the retreat with it,too. :)
