"Change always comes bearing gifts."
Since we've moved, I have developed a rhythm to my days off and evenings. However, it doesn't seem to include taking photos or blogging.
We moved in on April 19th. Most of the house is unpacked, with the exception of office supplies in the guest room, and most of the dining room as we search for the perfect china cabinet. We've been grilling most nights that its been warm.
I've made bread. My garden is in, I may expand it this weekend, but we'll see. I have herbs in pots on the deck. We've had a campfire. We've met several of our neighbors. We bought a bed for the guest room, and comfy chairs for the front porch. Our compost pile is started. We have plans to put in raspberry bushes and an asparagus bed. We explored along the creek at the end of our block (it leads all the way to the grocery store! And mint grows along most of it!) Some pictures are hung, others just sit in boxes. We've entertained many of our friends and family. We're extraordinarily happy in our house, and have received so many blessings recently.
With all this excitement, there just doesn't seem to be a spot for blogging and photos. I'm trying. Last week, I had Monday off, and took several photos around the house. I don't like how they came out, so I'm not sharing them.
In the midst of all the hustle and bustle of buying and moving into a new house, we're also planning our upcoming wedding for September. Our financially strapped state government proposed closing the state park where our ceremony was planned. Then they closed it, and opened it again within a span of a week. Our deposit was refunded, and I gave it back and reinstated our reservation.
I have a wedding dress, and an appointment to have it altered (3 weeks to loose weight!) My bridesmaids all have dresses they're comfortable with. We have our invitations, RSVP cards, and thank you cards, along with matching address labels. We've booked our honeymoon (Vermont!). We're working on ordering our favors, and we've shopped for wedding bands, although haven't purchased anything yet.
I guess its no wonder I haven't posted...Hopefully, our lives will continue to refine their daily rhythm, and I can get back to posting on a somewhat regular basis.
Have a great day!
