What's Up

Hey hey!! Hope you're enjoying this last little bit of summer! We've been to the lake and back and are home, working full speed ahead!!  Since we've been home, we've been trying to keep our place as neat as possible while it's been on the market, which is OH SO FUN with four kids + a dog.  I kind of love it and love living like this with everything finally done like normal people do, but hiding toothbrushes and towels and all that, not so much.  I think we're in a great spot with the house sale but I'll keep you posted.  I have to be honest, as we've had our place on the market and have been on pins and needles for the past two weeks, I've felt really strange about having it all "out there."  I've been blogging for almost eight years now and it's always been fairly easy and natural for me to share what's going on and I haven't felt very vulnerable about much... When I first started my blog, it had a very small audience- mostly people I knew or blog friends I'd made- and I felt like I knew everyone (obviously I didn't but that feeling was there) and I shared more personal pieces of my life.  I remember the blog post here from December 2008 in which I decoded to be really open on the blog.  As we've had more kids, moved several times, usually baffling people along the way, grown our business into something full time that supports our entire family, and taken on projects that I'm unable to share due to wanting to get them published, things have changed for me and in what I share.  My relationship with the blog has constantly evolved.   ...
