Movin' In

posted on: Friday, January 21, 2011


The last two days have been filled with packing, unpacking and packing some more. We just moved into our new butter cream yellow cottage. We're not fully moved in yet but we will be by Monday. Yay! It's been really amazing how it's all worked out, a real blessing beyond belief. We went from our little match box cabin to this huge sweet pad. Káel has been enjoying all the natural sunlight that takes over the downstairs in the morning. Our goal is to be fully moved in Monday at the latest. I'm excited to be able to have my friends over, have parties and really be able to do some of the projects I've been dreaming of doing but not having the space for. Look out...my creative brain in spinning with ideas! Sam will have a huge office/studio for his video business and I'm going to have a room just for my crafts/creating! eee!

Tomorrow, Sam and I are having a real date night while his folks watch little bug. We are going to a kick booty birthday dance party of one of my dearest girl friends. I can't WAIT! Eee! Step aside please, Jess is taking the floor.

I snapped a couple pics of little Forest boy as he was playing while I was unpacking. He will be 5 months in just a couple weeks. I can't believe that. Everyone tells you how fast your kids grow, but nothing prepares you for the reality of it.


Oh, and I want to send some sweet love to the amazing miss Danielle Hampton of Sometimes Sweet for the surprise of featuring boho baby bump on her beyond awesome blog. <3
