The Happy Hello
We spent the last week getting moved in to our new house and we are absolutely in love with it all. There are so many wonderful aspects to it all.
I’m having trouble putting into words the love I already have for this house. So far, it has felt like a giant exhale. It’s amazing to hear the sweet sounds outside my door of birds chirping, the wind whispering in the tress or, best of all, the neighborhood kids playing basketball.
Every day it feels more and more like home. We’re making huge strides in unpacking and we’ve even hung art which is really helpful in putting our stamp on the home.
Josie is right at home. She has a ball exploring the backyard. I’ve been able to let go so much more having our own back yard versus watching her at the park. It was hot yesterday afternoon and so I brought out various mixing bowls with water and some measuring spoons; Josie sat in just her diaper playing with the water while I read my book (granted, I only made it through two pages). I can assure you there is absolutely no book reading going on at the park. Hence, the giant exhale.
Every day since moving in there is a new surprise, a new wonderful corner to love and a new noise to learn about. I feel honored that we get to call this place home. And I can’t wait to share with you more pics as we work on making it completely ours.
