Starting off 2012 with a BIG MOVE!
It's a new year and it's about time I dust off the blog and get back to it! The end of last year went by with with hurricane speed and in the midst I did more weddings and portrait sessions than I can count, had a bday party for my now 7 year old, celebrated Christmas and moved our family of 6 after 9 1/2 years in our sweet little home. It was mind blowing all that went on and I'm so glad to have made it to January! It's like the storm faded and I've picked up all the debris and life is calm (well as much calm as it can be with 4 little ones) and orderly.
About our move....it was done after much, much, much prayer. Honestly I never thought we would move from our little ole house. As small and cramped as it was, it was home. We closed on that house the same week we found out I was pregnant with Boston. We brought 4 children home in that house. We celebrated many birthdays and holidays there. The kids moved from room to room as we added and added and added. There are dents in the walls from all the playing, artists left their drawings behind on the hallway walls and the memories flood each room.
But it was time.
God worked quickly and easily and it was very evident He had His hand on the whole thing. And now, even though we haven't been in our new house long at all it already feels like HOME! Home with MUCH MUCH MUCH more space. There is a place for everything and everything is in it's place. I LOVE it! I sooooo love it. (And the 3 minutes drive to school is way better than the old 20 min one!)
2012 is shaping up to be new and exciting!
