New Digs

So---our old house is SOLD, and we are IN the new house!!! I am so thankful for the Lord's providence in this, and so relieved to finally be moving on with all this stuff. Our house is a disaster area right now with furniture and boxes all over the place, and the painter is there today getting started on several interior rooms--but I don't even care because I am just so happy to be there!! We are just taking it slow, trying to unpack several boxes every day. Last night was our second night there, and this morning was my first time to drive in to school from our new home. The drive is going to be an adjustment for sure! I used to leave at 7:35 or even 7:40 and get to school by 8. Now if I leave past 7:15, it's all downhill from there. Leaving 20 mins earlier is not my favorite part of the change, but it's not so bad! I will be updating more later with some pics!

New Blogger!

So--I know I have been MIA--my house is a wreck from packing (who knew we had this much stuff?), and the amount of places to sit in our home has diminished from plenty to Taylor and I fighting over who gets to sit on the one cushion left. Ok, so maybe that last part is a lie--we do have one couch and one chair left. Everything has been put in storage, where it is anxiously awaiting being moved to its new home next Tuesday!! I cannot WAIT. Again, I'm not going to talk about it much now for fear of jinxing it. Ridiculous, I know. The Lord is in control of every detail of our lives, and I know that his sovereign plan will prevail in this situation as in any other. (And yet I still don't want to talk about it too much....perhaps an indication that I need to keep praying for peace and the ability to trust!)

Now for the real reason for my post: my best friend in the whole world, Emily, has started a blog! SO exciting. I'm so glad she jumped on the blog train. Her blog though, is something a little different. She has come up with a really interesting and truly different idea, I think--you should check it out. Her blog is called Grace By the Gallon. I'll let you read about it for yourself--she explains it much better than I could.

Hope all is well with you!
