The days and weeks of summer have breezed by, almost too quickly this year. So much happening and more changes on the horizon, but these changes are so comforting and thrilling. In just a few weeks we will have closed on our wonderful new home and we will once again begin planting roots. I can hardly believe we will celebrate our sixth wedding anniversary after being in the house for just one week. The Prosecco is already chilling!
An exciting new chapter in our lives, I realize we will spend the rest of our thirties in this house. That if we are so fortunate Matt and I will be bringing our babies home to this house. So many memories to be made and celebrations to be had. It is all so wonderful and overwhelming and I am feeling very grown up these days.
As we juggle it all, the inspections, repairs, budgets, decorating, daydreaming of decadent dinner parties, baking in my new kitchen and entertaining over outdoor BBQ's, finding the perfect spot for the Christmas tree, and a million other things that have been floating around in my head, I'm taking a step back to realize how very, very blessed we are to be at this point in our lives. Everyone's journey is different, and ours has certainly had its unexpected twists and turns over the years; not bad, just different. I am reminded that all of our hard work, sacrifice, prayers, and trust - trust in each other and in God, have brought us here to where we are. Home is really where the heart is, and our hearts just couldn't be happier to be making the final steps to our Home Sweet Home.
I started writing this blog August two years ago, as a little creative outlet and a home for my thoughts and pretty finds. Since then I have met some of the absolute loveliest people imaginable, both online and in person. I am so grateful to each and every person who stops by and reads my blog. Thank you for supporting me and continuing to inspire me!
I'm going to take the next few weeks to focus on personal things with the house, a minor outpatient surgery procedure Friday, Labor Day weekend - a last summer hurrah!, and juggling my job and family commitments. I've got a few scheduled posts and a couple fabulous guest posts lined up too to keep you company in my absence.
In the meantime, a million thanks again. You all mean so much to me. I hope that you all enjoy the last couple weeks of the summer....soak up every last drop! Cheers!
With love always,
