The house came about kind of quickly and unexpectedly after about a month of "casual looking*", and my head is still spinning at the thought that we will be leaving our little townhome in Spanish Fork for the glitz and glam of (essentially) the 'burbs. The house is beautiful, though, and will fit our needs perfectly. I am very excited! I will post more pictures once it is offially ours.
The oddly-timed trip to Norway is coming about because it just needs to happen. As some of you remember, my dad has cancer. He was diagnosed almost 4 years ago and has been fighting a hard fight ever since. But when he expressed concern that he might never get to meet Gwen, we got that baby a passport and are flying out shortly after closing. We can't take the cancer away (I can't tell you how much I wish we could), but we can make sure there are no regrets.
Life is a rollercoaster of emotions right now: Yay, new house! Boo, we're leaving our dear little home. Yay, we're going to Norway! Boo, cancer. Boo ridiculously awful timing. But yay, we get to see my family!
Nuts, I tell you.
