Happy 2010

Wow! 2010...10 years ago I graduated high school, went off to college at MU and met the man who is now my husband.

Six years ago I graduated college, married my high school sweetheart and started my first job out of college.

Now my husband and I have created our beautiful baby boy and are getting ready to make another life change- moving back to the southland and we couldn't be more excited.

It's always been our plan to move back down to Southwest Missouri- but we thought we would have to hold out on that chapter for a little while yet. But, due to some changes of events- we have the opportunity to move sooner than we thought.

It's a funny thing- life- that is. I've learned more than ever- when one door closes...another one always opens. And a door has opened for the McConnell family to move closer to our families and we couldn't be more elated!

Come Jan 15 we will be Hollister, Mo residents and 10 minutes from our favorite place- Table Rock Lake! Not to mention close to the ones we love! And another chapter begins...

We have so much to be thankful for in our lives this past year...here's to bigger and better things to come in 2010!

What a beautiful baby boy. I was wondering how you were doing. Congratulations on the new addition and the move closer to home. Keep looking for those windows and keep blogging!

I found your blog looking for French Coconut Pie...I think we're cooking soul sisters!

Thanks so much- Caston is our lil pea pod and we are so proud! We are really looking forward to our move back south to be closer to the family farm and the grandparents!

Blonde Duck- glad you enjoyed the French Coconut Pie recipe- it comes from my mother-in-law.
