Blogging!?! Update on life

It's been awhile! 8ish months to be exact. In order to be a better child of God, wife, and mom I knew I had to give up blogging. It is not something that I am passionate about. I enjoy doing so many things, but blogging is not really up on that list. I still craft as much as possible and love it! My favorite hobby for sure. I think when I blogged about it, I felt so much pressure to have great, witty posts and beautiful pictures, that I stopped enjoying it. It has been so long since I blogged that there isn't even blog reader anymore!

So what have I been up to and why am I blogging now?
My hubby and I have been married for 8 years now and loving that man more and more each day.
I have been busy with my crazy boys, now 2 and 5. Brady starts kindergarten in a few weeks!
We have been busy with friends and family.
Going on lots of fun trips.
My mom and I had an amazing 13.1 mile hike up to the top of pikes peak. It was on my bucket list, and I am already excited for the next time I get to do it. So special being able to hike my 1st 14er with my mom.
I am training for a half marathon in October. The longest run I have ever done is a 10k so I am super excited  for this race. I am only at 4 miles at a time right now, so I still have a lot of training to do, and it is keeping me busy.

I have even gotten a few projects done too. This is my $5 garage sale find I redid. Loving it.
Hardest part of our year so far was loosing our lab Coco, she is so missed.
Overall we have been doing great and feel so blessed!

So why am I blogging now? We are on a path to expanding our family. We have always wanted to adopt and we are now starting the process. We have felt called specifically to foster to adopt a baby. We are excited about becoming a foster family and our hope is to one day have a permanent addition to our family. While getting more information and figuring out the process I felt a little lost. There are so many options and every state and county is different. So the main reason I am blogging is to share what we are learning and to share what our process is. Every family is different, so our path might not be helpful to everyone, but it may help someone. Of course on this road we cannot share any info or pictures of our foster children, but we can share what steps we are taking, and how God is working in our family on this journey.
I hope to explain in a lot more detail soon, and what we have been through so far. We are super early on, but if just one person can be educated in foster care or foster to adopt, I will be so happy.
