We're In!

It was a long day...
but it was such a good day...

I am happy to report that I rallied and have the kitchen unpacked
and put away {not saying it will be rearranged}.  I needed
to do that.  After 6 weeks of a nomadic lifestyle I am eager
to cook a meal for my family.  We have eaten too many meals
in restaurants and 'on the go'.  

After the kitchen was unpacked I sat down and watched Nie Nie
on 20/20 last night.  I loved her before, but I love her even more now.
She is SO brave!  I could feel how difficult it was 
for her to tell her story in such a public way.  She is the epitome
of someone who has taken a very tragic event and shown us all
how to live better and fuller lives while appreciating
what REALLY matters.

I took the{awful} picture above while my movers were huffing and puffing
up the 16 steps up to our home.  The head mover asked why I was talking pictures
of the boxes......and I told him I am a blogger who has written about our family's move.
I am certain he thought I should put the camera down and start 
helping out a bit - ha, ha, ha!

** oh, see my new BIG lantern chandie?  I think it is my favorite
thing in the whole house!

And finally, the Anthro goodies go to Lisa from Life is
Crazy Beautiful!  Please email me with your addy
and I will send you some Anthro-love!

  18. Taking wonderful pictures of your new home can make moving in less tiring. I'm looking forward to seeing the pics of your house with the furniture arranged and all your stuff out of their boxes! How's living in your new house so far?

  19. That lamp is truly beautiful. It looks like it has a real candle inside it. That accessory can make any dining experience more romantic. I'm definitely buying one to put in my house. Then I'll invite my girlfriend over for a dinner date!


I always love to hear your thoughts! Please share!
