We packed up and got out of Virginia in the second week of December and since then our life was pretty much a haze of driving, suitcases, holidays, more driving, more suitcases, and then a solid week and half unpacking until we couldn't see past the packing paper mountains.
|More driving. I was probably two 5 Hour Energy's in at this point. (10 Hour Energy?) He's not impressed.|
Then my sister and my brother in law came to visit us for a week and we hid everything in the garage and just pretended we were the kind of put together people who unpack and decorate their whole house in two weeks.
They left this weekend and we are finally feeling mostly settled in.
Now that my life is mostly out of boxes and I actually have a place to sit and type, I will get around to taking some pictures this week and posting them for all the curious folks. I still have a picture here and there that need to go up before it gets the internet reveal stamp of approval. But I will say that we are super happy in our new home and we are settling in quite nicely!
But until then, I will leave you with this picture, which is the essence of our new Florida lifestyle. The best part of our house is the french doors that open up to the "lanai", a fancy Florida word for a screened-in porch, and we've all taken to enjoying the fact that we can have the doors wide open in January, especially our little sun-bather.
