Goodbye Desi!

One of my closest friends passed way Dec 17th in an automobile accident. I still am having a hard time wrapping my mind around it. We have so many memories together that it is very hard for me to go about my day without being reminded of you.
The little things. Last night my pants were falling off so I needed a belt, I grabbed a belt from the hanger and ended up in tears because it was a belt you used to wear that you gave to me. I drove to my in laws past the appartments that we used to live together in.
We had some rough times the past couple of years but I want to think that the changes you were making in your life were bringing you back to be my best friend Desi that I always knew.
This is how I always remember you. We had the best times together. Just hanging out and goofing off. You were always happy and up for a good time.
You always hated this picture from our California trip, but I like to imagine you walking towards heaven and waiting for me to get there. One day all of the Lewisville girls will be back together. Until then you better be saving me a spot.
Love you!

Our cute house.

I told everyone several months ago that I would post pictures of our house. I have been a super slacker since I got my new job. It has been hard to actually work full time! hahaha I was so used to being "full time" and working 20 hrs a week.
This is a picture of the back of our house. Our lawn is a little patchy because we planted it in June. With that being said I think it looks pretty dang good! I can't wait for the plants to get bigger in our landscaping so that you can see all of them.
This is a view from our back porch. Our back yard was a huge selling point for us. We don't have any neighbors to the back of us. All that is there is a pasture and lots of trees so we occasionally have cows that we can see.
Another view of our back yard. I am so excited for the potential it has! I can't wait for next summer so I can plant a garden.
This is a picture of the front of our house. It is going to look so good next summer when our grass is coming in good and all of our plants are growing. We have the little mound of dirt by the mailbox that we have to figure out what to plant there so it will be a fun adventure next year.
We are so happy with our house and must have been doing something right to fall right into it at such a great price.
