New Year, New Post

We're not very consistent bloggers to say the least, but in our defense, we honestly haven't had the time nor the motivation. So here's what we've been up to...

Mark's parents and Beth's family came out for a visit in October a few days apart.

Beth sold her knits at a couple craft shows.

Oliver experienced his first snow, and it turns out he LOVES snow!

We celebrated Christmas together at home, and then again with the Preston family, and then the Beach family. It was wonderful to be welcomed into their family celebrations, as we were definitely missing our families back in PA.

After coming home crying one too many nights, Beth decided to quit her job at AE. We both decided money wasn't worth being treated less than human. So since then she's been cleaning and doing all the laundry that we've put off for over a month, spending time with Oliver (who has spent way to much time pent up in his crate), knitting, and spending time with Mark. That's been the best part of course, since we were both working 40 hours per week, we rarely saw each other. We've also gotten to spend a lot more time with our friends out here, which we have both missed as well. We also got to see a couple of our dear friends from out east when they were in town visiting family.

SO that's just a tiny bit of what our lives have been like lately.


  1. It's nice to see an update from you.

    Congratulations on quitting your job, Beth! That's a very good reason to quit.

    Oliver has grown like crazy.

    Best wishes to you all!

  2. Hello! It's great to see that the three of you have been doing well. I wish I weren't so busy so I'd be a better correspondent. Both Nate and myself regret that we hardly got to know you guys until you moved, boo!

    Let us know when you guys will be back in town. Maybe we could meet up at the Gryphon. Goodness knows I think we're all a little tired of Starbucks at this point. :)
    Thinking of you guys often as well,
