Well, we're back in the heart of it all!
I'm not gonna lie, this move did not go as smoothly as our last one. I came down with a nasty cold just 3 days before we were set to leave. Luckily my wonderful husband was able to work double time to get us packed and ready, while I sort of sneezed around napped. Then there were the movers. Oh dear. The, er, highlights: they were 3 hours late picking our stuff up (with no phone call, I had to call 3 times to find out what was going on), 10 HOURS LATE dropping our stuff off, AND! AND!!! They showed up in a different truck than they had originally packed our belongings in with no explanation. It was a rough couple of days.
But! We're here now, and things are starting to come together. I'm really enjoying our new home. It sort of feels like we live in the country, but if you head 2 miles in pretty much any direction there are stores, restaurants, etc. A few photos around the abode:
Our front door. Everyone in our neighborhood has lots of fall decorations, so we added the pumpkins in order to look like participating members of society.
Our kitchen. To me, it's one of the most important rooms in a home, so I pretty much busted my butt for a few days to get everything into place before doing anything else. I love cooking in here!
Putting together a cozy reading corner. This chair was a new purchase. It's a recliner that doesn't look like one!
aaand a not so cozy corner. Actually, this is mostly all we have left to unpack. Not too bad!
Our girl has found her spot. I think she's really happy here, which was so important to us. We have a little yard for her, there are miles of lovely sidewalks, and even a walking path in a wooded area. I think we're settling in nicely!
