In February we put our house on the market the day of one of the biggest ice storms this are has seen in years and had 5 offers in less than 24 hours! It was crazy. We luckily found a house that fit our needs perfectly - in the same neighborhood, but just a little bigger and more room for our girls to grown.
Goodbye Yarmouth Lane
It was incredibly bittersweet to say "goodbye" to this little house. We came home from our honeymoon to this house; we brought our children home from the hospital to this house; we learned to truly love each other in the house; we learned what marriage looks like in this house; we built the foundations of our family in this house.
But it was time for a new chapter. On March 31st, we said...
Hello Spyglass Drive
We absolutely LOVE our new home! Its about 700 sq ft larger, but that 700 makes an incredible difference. My new kitchen isn't a big as my other one, but it its nice and open. It is definitely a gather spot, and I love it. There is nothing better than cooking dinner for your family while your husband and children sit at the breakfast bar coloring and telling you all about their day. One huge perk is that our property backs up to the golf course. Our yard is smaller, but it feels enormous because its green as far as you can see! I snapped this one Sunday morning while I was drinking my coffee on the back patio. Its so much fun watching all of the golfers.
We've also been incredibly blessed with great neighbors. We have already become close friends with several of them, and are so excited that there are children around our girls' ages. Emmalee is usually off to play with her new friends as soon as we pull into the driveway.
And Maddie has a sweet new friend, Olivia. She screams for "Livi" as soon as we get home. I have a feeling that these two might be inseparable as they grown up, and I'm ok with that.
A few weeks ago our sweet new friends asked if we should have a crawfish boil. It was awesome! 70 lbs of crawfish, 20 lbs of shrimp, 8 lbs of corn and potatoes and all the company and fellowship you could hope for!
So this has been our life lately. Settling in and getting accustomed to our place. The words "blessed" doesn't quite seem to really express how we feel. Its more than blessed; we're lucky. We're in awe of the graces the Lord has showered us with.
He is good!
