Sally the Chicken, sitting on my lap in the car on the way to our new house…

We have moved.  We put an offer on the house over 80 days ago… And at the last minute our loan people called and needed more stuff.  So we got it, and waited.  And waited…  And waited.  And I got to the point where I was sure it would never happen.  But then, at the very last moment it happened.  We rushed down to sign papers, and picked up the keys the next day.  

The last two days have been a mad rush of packing and moving and unpacking, but it’s already feeling like home.  

I plan to paint all the things.  The house is perfect for us and has amazing bones but it is in desperate need of some updating.  The kitchen is especially fabulous with it’s lowered ceiling and 4 inch brown ceramic tiles and ancient oak cabinets.  

Seriously though, I’m so in love.
