Crazy times

Taking selfies in my future bathroom. 
Friends, life is a little nuts right now. Crazy item number one: we are buying a house. Crazy item number two: we are planning a trip to Norway basically as soon as we close on the house. The timing couldn't be worse, but they are both important things, so off we go.

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.

(In unrelated news, I finally rewrote the "And who writes this?" section. About time!)

* Those who know us will tell you that we are the most obsessive people on the planet, and don't do anything casually. 


  1. Congrats on buying the new house! And I am so happy for you that you are going to see your dad. You are so wise to make sure there are no regrets.

  2. Wow. You definitely do have a lot things happening. I'm so pleased for you on the purchase of your new home and your trip to see your family. I'm sure the timing will work itself out as things get closer. I hope you very much enjoy spending time with your family while you visit home.

  3. Isj ting passer som regel aldri med noe egentlig, håper turen over blir god, Kreft er noe dritt her mistet vi svigermor i Januar 6 mnd etter hun fikk diagnosen, veldig kjedelig.
    Dylan var veldig knyttet til henne og han forstår ikke hvorfor hun aldri er med bestefar lenger vanskelig å forklare han men vi forsøker så godt vi kan :) Ærlighet varer lengst :)


  4. Congratulations on your new home and I'm happy for you that you are able to make your dad's wish come true.
