So we closed on our lot today!! It's a mile marker in our life, especially Davids, because we have been saying for a long time that we are going to build a house but now it is actually going to happen.

I even went out and helped him get ready for the pad prep guy who comes on Monday. I hope everyone comes to visit us when we are done. Or even before we are done because then we could put you to work. lol. good one. Anyway, just wanted to share the exciting news.

This is a picture of what our backyard scenery will be.

It's been a long time since I have written a normal blog. I don't know why either because usually I am pretty regular about it.

This weekend we had General Conference for our church. It is a semi-annual get-together of the church where leaders are selected to speak on topics of their choice. It was amazing because I felt like the messages that were spoken, were written for me. I wish I had the transcripts here but they won't be available till Thursday. I loved that 2 or 3 I can think of, mentioned the fact that we WILL be together again with our loved ones, and that mortality is such a short time for us. It was good to hear. I have been dreaming about my dad lately. All of them have been good dreams. I wish what happened in my dreams, would have happened in real life.  I savor the memories I do have, and hope I will be able to remember more.

I love my family. I really do. I know a lot of people say that, but I really really do. I have come to appreciate them SO much more now that I have moved away from them. The saying that friends come and go, but family stays forever… has become such a real thing to me. They are the ones that constantly keep in touch; they are the ones that care about how I feel. I love that and I love them for being that way.

Life is good. The weather is ABSOLUTELY fabulous here. In fact today David and I went to the park (which is 100 yards away) and flew kites. It was amazing. I looked at the PA website (which is really cool) and it says that the fall colors have changed only 10% but by October 18th, they will fully be changed. It's already so beautiful. We'll be driving down the road and among all the green trees; there will be a tree with full out RED leaves. It's unreal sometimes. I want to take pictures but I don't have my camera yet.

I am in such a melancholy mood. David thinks I am in a bad one but I am not really. We have been having so much fun lately; I think I am just pooped.  It's so nice to be able to spend time with him because come house building time, I am not gonna see him at all. That all should be happening real soon.  

My family will be coming here in approximately 6 days. I can't wait. I really can't. They aren't going to want to leave. And I hope they don't.
