Wednesday Ramblings | December in Photos

In December:

Of course, there was food.  And by food, I mostly mean sugar and cookies and more sugar.  December in Photos | Bake Your Day There were celebrations: two weddings, Candlelight Christmas Eve and three Christmases. December in Photos | Bake Your Day There were fiery sunsets that I really just can’t get enough of.

There were random things like blogger meetups, Christmas decorations, love notes from my hubs and a little bit of snow.  December in Photos | Bake Your Day

You might remember a little road trip that Paul and I took a few weeks ago.

Well, it wasn’t any old road trip.  He had a job interview.  With a new church.  In a new town.

And the news is, that he got it! (I snapped this shot when they called to offer him the job!

At the end of this month, we will be packing up our little loft and moving to Mid-Missouri to begin a whole new chapter.  We have a contract on a house…there were seriously deer in the yard when we looked at it:

Oh, and these monster ice cream cones?  They came from a local dairy in our new city.  Someone help me!

I think 2013 can go ahead and bring it.
