We made it.
It's not perfect and is still certainly a mess of boxes, but we moved into our house last week.
Feels so good.
I do feel a bit of pressure to get pictures up but I'm ignoring that for now and focusing on LIFE and LIVING and what does that all MEAN anyway?
It's so nice to be in our own space and to circle the wagons and simply BE together.
Part of my goal in my theme of HOME is coming to fruition. The first bit was to be in our own home. Now we are. It's so nice to actually make it to our goal of moving in by the end of January.
What are we lacking still? Well, a stove for starters (hopefully to be connected this Friday) and kitchen cabinets. Though we did just get our beautiful china hutch out of storage so we have a place to put our dishes and plethora of sippy cups. Classy. But it works AND it is a beautiful peace of furniture. I get such pleasure from it. Isn't that silly? We bought it sometime last summer but it's been in storage until yesterday. AND we got our bed out of storage which was lovely. I slept so well last night! We've been in since Tuesday and were just roughing it on the sofa-bed. As far as hide-a-beds go, it was pretty nice. No giant bar in your back like the one we used to have growing up. Certainly better than an air mattress, which I have a difficult time getting comfortable on. We didn't have a light in the dining room and were just using a halogen work light until Sean brilliantly decided he could hook up our task lighting with a different fixture. It'll make more sense when I have a picture to show you, but trust me, it is a stroke of pure genius. Lots of projects waiting to be done; trim in the bathroom, drywall on the south wall, mud everywhere, dining room light and kitchen light, shower tile, laundry room electrical, clean, organize and find our decorations in storage. The list goes on.
But we're home.
And we're together.
And for now, that is ENOUGH.
