A door closed.

Today was the last day we walked through these doors. We lived in this lovely little house for 3 years. Isla was 3 months old. We made some wonderful memories there. We grew a lot, learned a lot, cried a lot, welcomed lots of people into it, fed lots of people and mostly just grew stronger as a family in this home. It’s hard to say goodbye but I am excited for what our future holds! We’ve made some pretty tough and serious decisions these past few weeks and with lots of prayer and consideration decided to back out of the home we originally made our offer on, that was accepted, that prompted us to put our house on the market, which sold 6 days later, to the person who also made an offer on the house we did and theirs was rejected…. phew. So, in all honesty we felt as though this turn of events and also all the set backs we kept running into with the new house lead us to praying and believing that God was guiding us somewhere else. We are moving to Hawaii.
Just kidding. We are going to take our time, pray a lot, enjoy the Summer and wait on the house that we KNOW is perfect for us to grow old in.
So here I sit in my cute little apartment. Yes. We rented an apartment. My puppy is sprawled out on the floor fast asleep, my girls are snuggled up in ONE bed fast asleep, and my husband, who is probably waiting for me to hurry by badonkadonk to bed so we can snuggle and fall fast asleep. We’re together and we’re cozy and we’re happy and content.
So this is where we are now. I’ll keep the world posted on our future progressing!
