Why am I busy making aprons you might ask?
Where in the blog-world have I been the last month or so you may be wondering?
The Lloyd's are about to embark on a new journey.
The story starts a little something like this...
March 2002: We move to Auberry where I start teaching and Steve commutes back and forth to Fresno to work at Allstate.
We begin shooting around the idea of what kind of job Steve could have if he worked closer to home.
March 2004: Steve accepts a position with MortgageDocs, we begin trying for a family.
July 2005: Macy is born, Joni resigns from teaching.
June 2008: Steve is laid off from MortgageDocs (due to housing market fall).
We begin praying that the Lord would show to us where He wants us.
We pray for work closer to home.
Steve then accepts a position with Strongtower Financial, in Fresno.
Zachary is born.
January 2009: Steve is given the opportunity to work for Strongtower from home in Auberry and not commute to Fresno everyday.
In addition, we decide to take over the family coffeehouse beginning Februrary 1.
Daddy Joe's Java Time is now Bubba-Lu's Java Time.
So if you're wondering where I've been...
I've been filling out paperwork.
Re-training my brain on how to make a great cappuccino with awesome head.
Sneaking extra kisses from my hubby and kiddos.
Praising God for this new opportunity.
