In non-Emerson news..

While this blog obviously revolves around our sweet baby, many other things in life are happening in the mean time.  A few of the milestones:
Brandon graduated from college!  He graduated with honors, and got a double major: Human Services with a focus in law enforcement, and Political Science.  I am so proud of him and the huge amount of work that he put into it.  Working full time while going to school, and juggling family on top of it, he has been pulled in so many different directions, and has stayed so strong during all of it.  We are so proud of his great accomplishment!

I have been growing my hair out for a few years, and it was finally to a good length to cut and donate it!  I've donated it in the past to Locks of Love, and after some recent research, I chose a new organization called 'Pantene Beautiful Lengths'.  This organization is geared towards helping women who are battling or recovering from cancer, and provides wigs to them free of charge.  One other thing I loved about the organization was that you could donate your hair in honor or memory of someone.  I chose to donate my hair in honor of my Aunt Reena who has beaten breast cancer twice :)

13" to donate!
We have been toying with the idea of moving for a while, but wanted to wait until Brandon was finished with college.  We had also decided that to save money, we wanted to try and sell the house on our own.  In a stroke of another miracle, God brought just the right buyer to us at just the right time, and we sold our house in less than a week! 
We ran into a few hiccups along the way, but ended up finding a new house for us across town from our old one.  It is substantially larger, and has a waaay bigger back yard for us to enjoy as a family.  We are planning to close this Friday, and couldn't be happier!

All our worldly possessions in one space.
