My pinterest boards have helped me so much in planning for this new house we're buying.
What did we do before pinterest?
I'll tell you what I did. I had ginormous idea books everywhere.
It started with the one I had for my wedding. Then, I added one for my home and one for recipes.
They were so crammed full, they were hardly even useful.
We're less then two weeks away from our moving day, and I feel like it's gonna move at a snail's pace.
I don't know what I'm more excited about...
cooking my first meal in the kitchen?
taking my first hot bath?
sitting out on that big deck with friends?
laying in the hammock with Andy?
watching my kids finally settle and feel at home?
I haven't given this year enough credit because it's been harder than I've cared to mention.
There were a few things that out shined the hard parts.
Living in Georgia.
...in ATHENS, Georgia.
Being near my family.
Working at this amazing church with these amazing people.
It's been 9 months of pure bliss.
Except for the fact that we've moved three times.
We packed up and moved from Orlando.
We unpacked our stuff into storage and unpacked a few things into our temporary home.
Then, we packed up the storage unit and unpacked everything into our rental home.
Now, we're packing everything up again and moving it all to our new house two miles away.
As amazing as this year has definitely been, it's also been a year of unsettledness.
I wish so bad we were those people that were able to be "home" wherever we happen to be.
Renting has been hard for me because it feels a little impossible to make something yours that isn't.
I commend Nester for her philosophy on being a renter.
I have a whole new respect for her now that we've done it.
No wonder I'm low on energy and my back hurts at an all time high!
