The Door Is Still Open — Moving Day

The Door Is Still Open — Moving Day

The movers are here and the big day has arrived. I guess this is my final picture of this house.

The bright side is that I took the week off to pack and unpack. It has been really nice to be home and spend the time focusing on the girls and my husband.

Frankly, I have been so busy arranging our move that I marvel how everything gets done in addition to working full time. I consider it an open miracle!

My friend, Rachael, suggested a wonderful metaphor for our change in location.

Rachael said to equate the move to the transition stage of labor: we are giving birth to a new baby house.

Infinitely more positive than a tornado or a cyclone.

So, I am happy to announce the arrival of our new home!

        Too true! Besides, no point to sweating the small stuff. I am so grateful to be on the other side of moving — unpacking.🏑
