WE ARE OFFICIALLY MOVED!!!!
Never thought I would actually be able to say that considering all the stress, delays and fatigue all leading up to this moment. We moved and have been in the house since last Friday but have still been bringing over remaining loads from the old house all this week. It feels so great to finally have everything here….even if it is a mess and only half of it is put away. The kids are loving it, I am loving it as is the hubs. The moment we sat down after moving I knew we had made the right choice. Sometimes there is always doubt when making such a huge financial decision in life but I have never been more certain of anything in life more than this. I FINALLY feel home, feel content and feel like I have given my boys the best gift I could ever give them. I want them to feel settled, feel free and to enjoy their childhood for all that it can be. I know it’s just a house but anyone who has their dream home will understand what I’m talking about. I go to bed every night knowing in my heart that we did the right thing.
We have definitely done some changes since moving in. We painted all 3000 square feet of this house in the 3 days prior to moving in. I was still working and then coming over to pain at night. We had several very late nights but it was well worth it. We have also replaced all the hardware throughout the house (minus door handles) and have bought faucets for all three bathrooms. The house is ten years old and needs some updating. We will eventually replace the ceiling fans and some of the light fixtures and way down the road we would like to update the kitchen with some granite countertops and new appliances. Other than that nothing major needs changed and we are liking the small fixes that can keep us busy and allow us to bring in some of our own personality.
Jared and the boys are loving the yard. Jared has been working outside every night since we bought this place. I’m glad he finally has some privacy and space to enjoy. The kiddos are loving the hill and ginormous back yard. They endlessly run up and down the hill barely stopping to take a breath. I am loving the outdoor space as well but the highlight of mine is our kitchen. Even though Jared does most of the cooking I am enjoying being able to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and spread everything out if I want. Heck, if things get too crazy I could spread out 10 PB & J’s and still have room to spare. Say WHAT???
Now, that we are moved comes the organization and decorating part. I have some before and after pictures that I will post once some headway is made in that department so that everyone can see the new place. Hope everyone is doing well!!
