Today’s a little bittersweet for me and my family.  Today our house goes on the market.  It’s a little tough because this was the home that Heather and I came home to as a married couple.  It’s the house we brought our little boy home from the hospital to.  We know it’s the right decision, but it’s still a little hard.  I know home is where you make it, but this place has memories. It’s a great little house and we’re sure to miss it.  But the truth is, we didn’t really plan on starting a family as early as we did and the yard just isn’t great for a 3 year old.  The backyard has a huge slant and there just isn’t much place to play.  And our little guy needs LOTS of room to play.  That kid would be outside from sun up to sun down if we’d let him.  We need a little more room to spread out, too.

It’s the first of many changes on the horizon for us.  Heather will graduate in May and she’ll be transitioning to a new job.  And just have to brag a minute, she’ll graduate with honors.  Yep, Magna Cum Laude…  I’ll be more like thankya laude ~grins~.  Kidding aside, it will be great to have the stress off of her.  That will allow her to relax a little.  She’s done a pretty good job though being a full-time student, mom, and wife all while holding down a full time job as an RN.  I’m so proud of that girl!

Well, I just felt like I hadn’t chatted with y’all in a while and just wanted to let you in on what’s going on in my life.  I’ll have a little bit more free time now that my travel with work is over, so I hope to be able to chat with y’all a little bit more than I have been so far this year.  By the way, what happened to January, February, and the first half of March???  Whew!  Seems like I was just taking down Christmas decorations.  Good grief!  Well, y’all be good!

    Just a quick comment, congrats on the magna cum laude!! As for the house, it’s a bittersweet moment, but when you find the right house..
    it will be home!

    best wishes to all of you!

  3. Congrats on the Magna cum laude!!Hard work pays off!
    I understand the bittersweet you are talking about. We lived in our first house for 25 years. When we built the house we live in now (8 years now), I was afraid it would never be “home” but it didn’t take any time until it did. It was where my family was, therefore it was home! Gives real meaning to “home is where your heart is”.

  4. It is hard to sale a place after many years and memories…have been right where you are. My two kids are now married and now have their own lives and houses to take care of. Just me and my husband and our dogs 🙂
    Hope all goes well when you move and I know you are very proud of your daughter. My daughter told me a few days ago she and her husband are now ready to have children…so maybe soon I can post am going to be a Nanny! God bless!

  5. I am looking forward to trying this Buttermilk pie. I think you need a chess pie recipe on your site. I just love chess pie my grandmother who was born in Coldwater,Mississippi made it and it always reminds me of her.

  6. Enjoy your postings! Tell your wife congrats on cum laud, many RN’s in my family! And good luck with new house, home is truly where the heart is!

  7. I have made this recipe and used a pre-made graham cracker crust because I was lazy once, and it turned out fabulous!! My family now prefers the graham cracker crust! The extra sweetness and crunch was great, and some of the buttermilk “juices” soak into the crust before it gets very hot. But don’t let it sit after pouring, put it right into the oven!

    Is Buttermilk pie the same as chess pie?

  9. Is buttermilk pie like custard pie?

  10. Add some lemon zest and a couple teaspoons of lemon juice! WOW! I have a similar recipe in my Historical Indiana Cookbook.
