So, I'm sure some of you are wondering where I've been for so long! After all, it has been, what, almost a year since my last post? Truth is, I was sucked into MySpace after so many of my Birmingham friends began using it to keep in touch. After time, my blog just fell by the wayside. I apoligize to those of you who are faithful bloggers, but your prodigal sista has returned! Well, I'm not making any promises, except that I will vow to post more frequently this time around.
So, what HAS been going on in the lives of Justin and Whitney?
1. Justin has been doing some business expansion on the Gulf Coast. What does this mean for us? Long times apart, but good quality time when we're together. I sometimes think we're able to spend more quality time now, than when we were living in the same city! Sometimes it seems that "life" just gets in the way of the things that are most important to you. Anybody agree? The traveling will end for the most part around the end of July, and Justin can "move" back home! We're counting down the days! Here's a recent picture of Justin... isn't he the cutest?
2. We are building a new home! Our current home has been on the market for about a month now. We have been so pleased with the activity we've had. Today, there are 2 showings, we have 1 so far tomorrow, AND we are negotiating an offer even as we speak. Not sure if it will work out because the people are just being a bit unreasonable. They aren't willing to give us what our home is worth. We are only about $3K apart, but we just can't go down any more.
Here is a picture of the piece of land where our new home will be built.
Our home is actually a lot further along than the picture shows. It actually has first floor walls and everything, but I left my camera at my mom-in-law's. I'll post another pic soon. We were able to choose our lot, floor plan, and all of the interior options for our new house. It will truly be "ours." I'm so excited, and can't WAIT until September when it'll be ready.
3. WORK! Yes, folks, seems like that's about all I do these days. BUT, I do have the best job in Birmingham, and I'm pretty sure the whole country. So, I can't complain.
So, life is good here in Birmingham! Hope you're doing well, too! Ta!
