It's Official.

It's Official. We have moved! One house bought, one house sold. Boxes packed, stacked, and unpacked a hundred times over. The piano finally arrived. I finally found the baking sheets and that one blankie we searched a full day for.  The propane is hooked up.  Wood for the fireplaces has been delivered.  The house is warm.  We are settling in and gearing up for winter. I am not a blogger that does a play by play on big life events because I fear I might jinx things. So all fear of jinxing is over. We are officially MOVED and the moving truck did NOT end up in the lake. (long story...)
Halloween 2014
This new (to us!) home had been in foreclosure for close to 4 years, so there are plenty of projects to do, but the house was in surprisingly good shape after so long. As excited as we are about the inside, we are moreso over the outside. I can't help but name little places, Anne-Shirley style, as we take walks to get to know the land. There is Oak Hollow and Chippel Hill, Red Moon and the Valley of Poets and the Creek Walk and Goat Pasture (!!!).  Those last two need better names and the latter needs the goats (!!!!!), but by Spring, things will be properly denominated.




If you are curious, I have been sharing photos on instagram. Come say Hello!

Congrats on your move! We've been naming things at our new house too. The owners have passed along some of their gems; the kids named their play area "Shady Oaks" and another area down by the ditchbank "Kidnapper's Cove." Haha! We think we are going to call our farm "Willow Hill," it's got a nice ring to it. Your place looks beautiful!
