Change



That is about how it happened, my friends. And I couldn't be happier! In a few short weeks, we will say goodbye to this cozy, country house we have called home for almost thirteen years, and begin a new chapter in our lives. 

Although this move has been something Steve and I have discussed many times, we were surprised and excited when we found the perfect home in the perfect place, not too terribly far from this one. Steve's job is taking us closer to his wonderful family, and we are beyond thrilled to be able to spend more time with them.

We are so thankful that God has made this new adventure so easy for us thus far. Once we saw the new house, we were able to purchase it quickly. Then, with the help of a sweet neighbor, we were able to sell this home to the nicest, sweetest family within just a few days.  I am so happy that this home, which has been so special to us, will now be home to this lovely family of four, including the cutest two year old twins ever!

The past few weeks have found the kids and I sorting and organizing, packing and purging. Steve is taking care of all the technical things that make no sense to me at all. I am finding it so refreshing to actually let go of so much physical and mental clutter! I suppose those boxes I carefully packed thirteen years ago when we moved here, and have been neatly stacked in our basement since,  are things we can live without, right?

So there you have it, my friends. We are off on a new adventure, and I can't wait to share it with you! I welcome all thoughts and prayers as we embark on this new chapter in our already blessed lives.
Thanks for visiting, and for your friendship.
It means so much to me. : )

  2. How exciting! I never would have guessed this news was coming!! I can't wait to see pictures of your new home and hear about all the memories you're going to make in it. I've moved a million times in the past 20 years- lots of emotions and yes- the ability to de-clutter like nobody's business! :)

  4. Oh how exciting!!! I will keep you all in my prayers. I will look forward to seeing your new home! On a side not, I wanted to let you know I had been looking for a new fragrance to wear for some time, when I read what you loved, I figured since we like so many of the same things I would give it a try! I love it! Thank you for the inspiration. Hugs ~Juli

  15. Sounds so exciting for your family!!! Can't wait to see your new home. It's good to have an excuse to go through things and purge. We had a flood in our basement last week and I'm now reorganizing and getting rid of stuff we don't need. It feels good. I know your move will be a smooth transition as you are a very organized person.
    Congratulations!

  20. Oh my you have been so silent about this till now. Awesome on finding your new home and selling yours so fast! Sounds like this was all meant to be. Purging....been trying to get that done the last 1.5 yrs since I retired and not making a dent in it. Can't even think how much stuff I have and would to get rid of if I was to move...26 years of stuff.

  22. I was unexpectedly required to make some changes in our living situation which called for some major purging and downsizing...more times than I would like to remember - but I do know this - God will be there and is there through it all. It sounds like it will be a wonderful new adventure! Bravo! Hang on tight!

  25. Oh, Billie JO, I am so excited for you! And I love it that you see it as an adventure. That is a word that our family has always used to help our children accept change more easily. Now they are using it with their families in much the same way. You are such a blessing! I will look forward to seeing how everything progresses. How kind of God to help you purchase your new home and then have your country home sell in a matter of days! xx
