yes, things have been super busy this holiday season.
for those of you who know me well, know that i most certainly 'deck the halls' for the christmas season. only this year, that posed a bit of a problem... we are currently in the middle of a move! that's right, a move a week before christmas!
we have been living in a house that we did not love, but were just toughing it out until the next chapter of our lives took flight. that was until a house a short two blocks away became available! we were in love, inside and out, made the deal immediately, and MOVED!
one good (great) thing about moving, and the only good thing about it, is the organizing, trashing, sorting, and down sizing that comes along with the move. we have trashed BILLIONS of things that were not needed, and now are living clutter-free (almost).
our new home has the MOST AMAZING screened porch that stretches the entire length of the back of the house... that is my go-to spot for sure! it also has a brand new kitchen with a farm sink, stainless steel appliances, a gas oven ANNNNNNND a convection oven (OH MY GAWD!), and is painted in grey's, yellow's and white - doesn't get more perfect than that! we have the most beautiful hardwood floors, no carpet AT ALL, a grey master bedroom and a wood burning fireplace.
yes folks, we are HOME!
our yard, front and back, is surrounded by ginormous trees that have just lost the last of their leaves. i have raked for three days now. i woke up yesterday morning and couldn't move my shoulders! but we have a clean, green yard!
every evening since we moved the furniture in, we have sat in our back yard and enjoyed a bonfire. oh yes, i forgot to mention that.... our back yard has a fire pit! just another beautiful thing!!!!!
hope everyone is having a lovely christmas season!
