Home Sweet Home

Whenever anything significant happens (like getting married, having a baby, buying a home) I always think what would I have thought if 10 years ago someone were to tell me "In 10 years you will marry the man of your dreams. In 1o years you will have a baby girl of your very own. In 10 years you will buy a house." At that time I would have thought "wow what will he, she and the house look like." But now I sit here, or lay here (on an air mattress) and I can see. Husband. Whoa, he's hot. Baby girl. Holy smokes she's adorable. Home. Wowza we could afford that?

My parents had money growing up so I never went without. I was beyond privileged to do many things and have many things. But being on your own and paying for life on your own (or being married to someone who pays for life;) ) is a different feeling. A blessing really.

So we have moved and here we are. Garage, back yard, laundry room, pantry, walk in closet. New place, new space, new sounds, new grounds, new smell, new feel, new ness all around. It's all new to us.

And we are beyond thankful and I continue ask God ... how can and will you be glorified here?

  1. That's great! Owning a home is amazing, sometimes I look around and think "this is really ours" :)
