It's been a while...

Ho-leeeeee Smash!

It's been a tough couple of weeks around here. We have been knee deep in some pretty crazy stuff.

Craig has been offered another job in another state. It's our "home" state and all of our family are there....most importantly, our three oldest children and our soon to be grandbaby. 

The problem is, that the salary they offered is less than he is making here. As soon as the university he works for now found out, they gave him a raise so he would stay here. It's a very long story.....but suffice it to say that it's been a gut wrenching couple of weeks. The back and forth negotiations are miserable.

But as it stands- at this very minute- we are staying here.

I would like to be 100% certain of that, but there is a small (very small) chance that the other university just might pull a few strings, but I am certainly not holding my breath.

I haven't done too much crafting or make overs because of all of this.
Seems I just can't concentrate.

But I have a couple of things that are juuuuust about done that I will share soon.

I will share a picture of our beautiful daughter Ragan.
This is before her date picked her up for Prom.
Have a happy day! :)

So glad you are 'here' but wish you the very best however the final decision ends. Ragan is gorgeous-the flower you chose is a perfect match!

I know Craig will do the right thing for your family. Just pray. Worrying is not productive. Turn your confidence over to your husband. Everything will be fine. Warmest blessings and best of luck.
