Feb. Catch up

One of my goals for this year was to post on this blog twice a month. Well, as you can see, I've already failed at that! I guess I shouldn't have such lofty and unachievable goals! Haha!

This month has been a busy one for us. Our biggest news is that we have moved to a different place within the same city. A retired couple in my church left this month for a 23 month mission in the Philippines. We are renting their house while they are gone. It has been an absolute blessing to us. We went from just over 800 sq. feet of space to just over 1900 sq feet. It is a beautiful home in a nice, quiet neighbourhood. We love it! Moving was a hassle (as always) but we had great help this time so everything was loaded and unloaded in less than an hour.

We also enjoyed a huge snow storm this month. One Wednesday it dumped 8 inches of snow in just over 18 hours. It was the most snow in this area in 4 years. We didn't get our street plowed until around midnight Friday morning! We were stuck at home for almost 36 hours. That was fine with us. We used the time to unpack and get settled in. We also took the opportunity to meet our new neighbours as we were all out shoveling together. I had 2 snow days off of work, plus it happened right before a long weekend, so I enjoyed an unexpected 5 day break from work. Can't complain about that!

 This is our road! Not much was getting through that snow.

 Husband shoveled, and shoveled, and shoveled. Poor guy!

This month also marked 7 years since Husband and I met and started dating. To celebrate the occasion, Husband sent me this gorgeous bouquet at work. It made my day!
