Things are finally feeling like home around here. Mostly. The roads are still unfamiliar, and I haven’t met a single soul, but I am quite honestly loving the privacy. I may have a very public life online, but there is something about a quiet, peaceful home. Except for the donkeys across the street. They are not quiet, and we all die laughing every time they go at it. But other than that, it’s quiet. Our old house was on a heavily traveled road, and you could actually drive by and see us having dinner (true story, my aunt called the day after valentines and asked how our candle lit dinner was, because she drove by and saw it). Now, we are on a back road atop a hill that sits on five acres. It’s so nice.
Most of the boxes in the house are unpacked. I haven’t touched the guest bedroom or office yet though, and I haven’t hung a single thing on the walls. I feel slightly unsure about doing it, because currently there are NO holes in any of our walls – not even towel racks or toilet paper holders in the bathrooms (unsure how that can be true for a 25 year old home).
We are finding our new normal and getting in a groove. I don’t find myself running up and down the stairs four times at night because I forgot something anymore. Elizabeth hasn’t mentioned “going home” in a couple of days, and is sleeping very well in her new room by herself upstairs (which freaks me out, honestly).
This week, I am hoping to stick to a schedule – get my office set up and begin “working” again. Thank you so much for your patience during this exciting time! I cannot wait to share more with you!
If you follow me on instagram, these may be repeats, but here is a great recap of life lately!
I would love to know how YOU are. What’s the weather like where you are? How is your life, lately?!?
