Yes, I know I’m full of all kinds of news lately. This is more personal than last week’s Better Homes & Gardens news, but I still wanted to share with you. While I’ve been busy blogging and working away, the last few months have been pretty eventful for our family behind the scenes. I may share the long version eventually, but for now, I won’t bore you with the details.
So, yes, we have moved! We found a house that we fell in love with, in the perfect spot, a couple of months ago. We took a huge leap of faith and decided to buy it. My husband and I both felt strongly that this was where God wanted us, so we did it. . .
I’ve always believed in the power of prayer, but I can’t say that I’ve ever seen God answer my prayers more specifically than He did in this situation. Again, to write all of the details might require several posts, but here’s the short story: Within a seven-day period, we received an offer on our house (as we were moving some furniture out), and received a signed contract on the same day of the BH&G photo shoot. (Better Homes originally said they wanted to shoot “before the end of summer” but once they were aware of our situation, the wonderful Lisa Mowry helped to move things quickly along.) His timing is, indeed, perfect.
Many of you have asked if I kept any of the changes from the photo shoot in place. So, my answer is no :) It’s all coming with us to the new house. I can’t wait to tell you more about our new home. I have 1000 thoughts/ideas for things I want to do going through my mind, and I’ll give you a full house tour soon.
In the meantime, I promise no more big announcements (at least as far as I know. . .) on the blog for a while :)
