I think I've just spent the last hour or so looking through my archives and realized that blogging is more than just letting your friends and family know what's going on, it's a journal that you can look back on and remember things long forgotten. So, I'm turning over a new blogging leaf so to speak. I have much to write about and with the busyness and stress of the last month I've let it go but I plan on being back in action- at least posting more frequently than once a month.

Anyway, for those of you that are wondering, we closed on our house on Friday, October 13th. It's funny that our first home purchase would be on Friday the 13th but we're not superstitious so it doesn't really matter except for ironies sake. One of the reasons that I haven't posted is because I've been waiting to upload pictures of our house but since there are still boxes everywhere I haven't been able to. But we bought a fixer that needs a lot of cosmetic "fixing" but is structurally sound. It's very small and we don't have enough room for everything so we're having to get very creative but we have a plan and at some point it will look amazing.

God has truly blessed us and we're so thankful. I was driving home from Hendersonville and there was a break in the clouds, the sun was shining, and I was on a stretch of road that has, a park, trees, historic homes, trees, hills, and trees and the wind was blowing furiously, knocking autumn leaves all about and it was truly amazing. It definitely seemed like something out of a movie and I've dreamed of living in a place like this for my whole life and I was so thankful for Gods goodness. I'm looking forward to getting much more involved at our church and Chloe has already started getting involved by joining a dance group that's going to perform for the Christmas program. She was so excited and this seems to be perfect for her and her personality.

We'll have a busy weekend traveling to B'ham for my Mom's 60th birthday tomorrow morning and will come back early Sunday morning to catch the second service at church. And then more unpacking and organizing. I promise to post some pics soon.

It does seem to be that the more you have to blog about the less time you have to blog. I agree that it is as much a journal for me as it is a way for others to join our world. Thus the two extra blogs for the boys. I was thinking how much I would love it if my parents had done so much in recording my life growing up. Maybe I'm self absorbed, but I would love that.

Anyway...we are very excited about the house and I hope you guys had a great time in Birmingham. Happy Birthday to Mom!

Don't wait for it all to be just "perfect" before taking a picture. Even if you don't share them, before shots are great to have- even with the mess of boxes. in fact, the messier the better- it will make the after pictures look even more amazing. I'm ready to get my hands dirty alongside you whenever you're ready. We're thrilled for you!

I am so happy for you guys and I can't wait to see your new place. Projects on your own home are so much more fun than doing things to a home you're renting. You guys are going to enjoy making your new house your very own.

I agree with Mary. I wish I had the treasure of a journal from my parents. Our children, and their children will treasure these stories that may seem non-so-relevant to us in the present.
