{home & garden} moving day

Hi.  Yep it’s me.  Been gone a while.

About 3 months I think.

A crazy 3 months.

I’m so sorry to have left you so high and dry. I hope to be back soon.

Hubs thought it would be fun to sell our house. He likes to keep things interesting.

About a week before Hayden’s birthday in February he got a wild hair that we should put our house on the market.

So we did.

The same weekend we had Hayden’s birthday, a Valentine’s Party, and Piper’s Baptism. Then every weekend after that for the next 2 1/2 months we either had an open house, traveled, or hosted a birthday party.  When that wasn’t happening, we were showing the house 2 or 3 times a day. Fun, fun, fun.

At the time, we weren’t exactly sure where we would move to, but thankfully in the process we found another house in need of TLC…..so we’re doing it all over again.

As I type this post, I’ve got our kids on vacation this week, (after hosting swim lessons for 10 days at the house, and moving)….and Hubs is getting the last few things from our house to his parent’s home (where we will live for the next 5-6 months).  The buyers take possession of our home in about 48 hours.

Our new house doesn’t close for another few weeks, and then the remodeling process begins. The hope is that I’ll be able to show you this next house start to finish.

For now, I thought I should at least tell you that we were still here. So many people have sent emails asking what happened and if I had moved the site…nope, still here, just buried as usual.

Hope you are all well! Be back soon I hope!
