Oh boy. Where do I start? Ummmm…so I’m on an adventure. Life has changed and this little family is moving back home! Back to the woods and lakes of MN. It is such a bittersweet time. I have made such beautiful friends here in South Dakota that I will miss dearly. We have Tony’s grandparents here in Sioux Falls that we will miss seeing so regularly. The city of Sioux Falls is a wonderful place–the best park system, fabulous shopping, and that small town feel. Great Faces, Great Places. So good-bye to our sweet first home–the place that welcomed two little babies in. Memories that will last forever for us. Bittersweet. And yet, so excited to be joining more family back home in the Twin Cities area. oh yes!! Places to camp, fish…favorite quilt shops much too close for my own good…old friends, new friends to make…yes, yes VERY exciting! Plus a new home to find where we will make many more memories. So my last few weeks have been crazy busy packing boxes and getting our house on the market. Searching for the new perfect spot to call home. An adventure. Good thing I like adventures. And good thing my God is a great God who holds our future perfectly. That’s peace.

How exciting, but like you said, bittersweet to be leaving a place you love! I am personally excited that your new location might allow from a crafty meet up or two? Where in MN are you looking to live?
Again , yay ! So glad to have u back ! What area do u think u will settle in ?
Wahoooo! What a fun adventure for you guys and I am selfishly thrilled that you will be close by to knit and sew and give me mommy advice!!! What an exciting time for you guys!!!! Yay!! 😉
I would love some crafty meet ups Devin!! We are looking in the Mounds View/Arden Hills/Lake Elmo area…but open to other places as well. I’ll probably FB you about your area to get your thoughts.
I’m so excited to be close to you guys again. We are looking in the Mounds View/Arden Hills/Lake Elmo area. Basically want to feel like we are in the country but close to the heart of the city…awesome school district…affordable… Not too much to ask right?! 🙂
Yes, I am so excited Emily! I have been thinking of you so much lately and the approaching baby time!!
Like I told Devin, I am ALL in for knitting/sewing/whatever time!! Yes please!
Crazy times for us! Babies, moving, oh my.
That is wonderful that you guys are moving back to the area! Now I’m thinking bucket potatoes were an idea ahead of it’s time, because you have a moveable garden! Best of luck on the move and finding the perfect home. When you are settled please bring the boys up to see our farm and all of the animals!
Is it crazy weird that I have thought about getting to see your farm since we found out about our relocation news?! I think I’m just a little excited to get your way! Coming to visit the farm might be more about the mama than the boys. Thanks for the invitation Jess!
I love that people want to come up and see all the crazy things the Neumann’s have going on. This summer we will be home alot more as we have baby #2 due July 2nd. I have to admit that I was more than a little excited when I found out that my maternity leave would encompass the majority of garden harvest and canning time. Not that #2 wasn’t exciting in itself but it only got better knowing I’d get to have more of a hand in canning this year. It’s always so hard to go to work when you know there is canning going on in the outdoor kitchen. Can’t wait to see you guys!
