It's Been A Long Time Comin'

"It's been a long time comin', my dear, It's been a long time comin', but now it's here."
Bruce Springsteen

It's been nearly two years since my last post and so many things have happened! But, for the sake of keeping this conversation relatively short, I will post glimpses of the best and biggest moments:

We sent our oldest son (the tall guy to my right) on a two-year 
LDS Mission to San Bernardino, California.

We moved into our unfinished home.

I opened a full-service interior design showroom in Bountiful called LIV Showroom with
Kristen Holm, Deboni Sacre and Pam Jensen.

We finished our kitchen... yay!

I began working for Rainey Homes as their Interior Designer.

The girls and I from LIV attended a couple of furniture markets.

My husband wrote and released his first book, I Knew Their Hearts.

I appeared on local talk shows Fresh Living and Studio 5 for LIV Showroom.

I wrote a book called Room Recipes: A Creative and Stylish Guide to Interior Design 
to be released September 19, 2013.

My two youngest boys became *gasp* teenagers.

And most recently, we began landscaping and renovating the exterior of our home
(more on this to come).

Oh, and I did some interior design in between all of that
which I'll start posting about on my blog!

Stay tuned...
