I have neglected my blog. There. I said it. I am riddled with guilt and, thankfully, Ugly Betty came to my rescue tonight. In this episode Betty started her own blog and as I was curled up on the couch I reached for my computer to start writing again. Ahhh...I have missed this. New year means new dedication in ALL areas of my life.
So...let's catch up! I left you all in suspense about what to name my new business venture. The wait is over...the new company name is 'so sarah designs'! Think kitchen meets diva...and that is what I specialize in! :) Fabulous aprons, beaded and sparkling servingware, sassy napkins and matching napkin rings...and so much more! My sewing machine has been burning the midnight oil for the last couple of months and I could not be more THRILLED!!! Ahhh! This is the best job I have ever had! God has truly blessed me in this new venture. Pics to come soon. I know! I am cruel. I have to keep you coming back somehow!
Next...the holidays. This was J's and my first 'married' Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year...and...they were AMAZING!!! I won't gush about every detail, but I gotta say...I fall more and more in love with that man 'o mine every single day. It is so true that everything in life is better when shared with the one you love- especially Christmas morning. Ahhh... heavenly.
Okay...I gotta say that 2010 has a hard act to follow...2009 rocked! I got myself a new hubby, a new career, and a new lease on life. BUT...it sure has started off with a pretty fabulous bang. I started the new year with a roadtrip. I L.O.V.E. and I do mean L.O.V.E. roadtrips! The most fabulous and uber gorgeous Jamie asked me if I would like to go to Connecticut to visit our dear friend Kelli (a.k.a. my soul sistah in life), her new hubby, her new home and her new state. I shrieked YES and off we went! Little did we know that this was truly a God inspired trip. Every single day was filled with laughter, new adventures, friends, and God. Click here to read all about our adventures! God truly used this time to spiritually fill me up and recognize all the new opportunies that surround me this year.
Since we are talking about new opportunities it is time to announce J's new job opportunity. The Lundgrens will be relocating to the west side of the state! We are not sure if it will be temporary or permanent yet, but until then my hubby will be starting his new job in Walker, MI (right next to Grand Rapids) in about two weeks. I have to be honest that I had a lot more emotions about this move than I thought. I have talked for YEARS about wanted to move back to the west side of the state...until that exact reality came to be. THEN I realized that the whole time I had been saying all of that I had layed down some pretty deep roots here in this home of mine. In this little downtown apartment I have lived in for almost 9 years I have gone from a girl to a woman to a wife. In those years, I have made friendships so deep that my heart literally hurts just thinking of them not being in my everyday life. I have met, dated, and married the most amazing man - truly God's best. I have become my goddaughter's best friend in the whole world (which thankyouverymuch took years to accomplish - she IS almost three you know). And through it all there has been one constant...God. He is the reason I have these beautiful friendships. He is the reason why I can curl up each night with the love of my life. He is the reason that my goddaughter -who is the coolest little chick I have EVER met - is even with us. And He is the reason my life is so blessed. So...if He says this is the time to move. Then this is the time to move. Let the adventures begin!
And on that note...I will sign off. Good night and God bless!
