Happy Donut Day!

On Friday (national "Donut Day") we went and got free Krispy Kreme's! The girls totally loved it. They of course chose the sprinkle kind. It was also fun to watch the donuts being made. Thomas got a few bites of his free donut and some chocolate milk which he, of course loved too. It's nice to get out of the house every once in a while even if it's just to get a free donut. Apart from donuts :) we've been doing great way out here in Missouri. Even though I don't really have many (or any) friends quite yet, I am blessed with some great sister-in-laws who live just a few minutes away. I've also been so blessed with a feeling of peace in regards to Missouri being my home. With everything around me almost opposite of what I am used to, I expected it to take at least a couple years for me to feel good about calling it home here. A couple months ago as I was driving around a feeling of comfort came over me as I was pondering upon my new home. Ever since its been a great blessing to have that peace knowing at least for now this is my home. One of the most difficult parts about being here is being so far from family. One of my dreams is to someday live close to my parents so it's been rough being not just 9 hours away like before, but now 27+. I'm hoping that dispite the distance we'll still be able to visit with them regularly. However, if anyone is ever in our neck of the woods we would love to meet up. A familiar face would be very much a great blessing.
