Back From Break

Announcement #1

When Caleb and I got married, he moved in with me, into a rent house that I had been in for almost 2 years. We knew we wanted to buy a house, but that wasn’t something that was a wise immediate decision. Instead, we sat down and wrote out a list of our wants and needs, and then we prayed over that list. We prayed, and prayed, and prayed. We live in a small town, so houses for sale aren’t exactly taking over the town. In the end, we narrowed in down to two houses we were interested in, but we still weren’t in a place to buy one.

Then, God stepped in. To make a long story short, we were able to get the better of two houses for an awesome price and the financing worked out perfectly. We got everything on our list that we wanted and needed, and now we have a home to call our very own! As of August 31st, we’re officially homeowners!!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Back From Break: Baby Announcement

That’s right; WE’RE EXPECTING OUR FIRST BABY!!! Yay!!! We are so super excited!! We found out a few weeks ago, told our families and a few friends, then finally made it “Facebook official” last week! We feel so so so blessed and we are very excited for this new adventure! While meeting with our midwife for the first time last week, weΒ heard our little one’s heartbeat. There is no better feeling! Also, shout out to our kid for having the coolest pregnancy announcement ever. πŸ˜‰


When I started this blog back in June, I didn’t think that it would become such a big part of my life so quickly, but I fell in love with blogging. Over the summer, I had lots of time to blog, create graphics and printables, and invest in Small Town Soul. However, with becoming a homeowner, finding out we’re pregnant, and just re-prioritizing, I’ve come up with some changes for Small Town Soul. Of course I’m going to continue blogging; I can’t stop now! I love my readers and I love sharing my posts with you. For the past several months, I have been posting three times a week, on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Now, that will be changing. I will now be posting onlyΒ twiceΒ a week, on Tuesday and Thursday. This will allow me time to develop even more new content for you and will prepare me to slow down once baby comes.
