Life is crazy right now! So crazy that I had to take a little unexpected hiatus from this little blog for a bit. We have officially moved into our new home and life couldn't be better. All that we waited for is finally here and each day is full to the brim with fun projects. I was insane to plan Alec's Christening for the day before the big move, but somehow it all worked itself out and things went much more smoothly than I ever could have imagined.

The first week was chaos. Kiel and I were up each night until around midnight.. unloading boxes, putting furniture together, and painting walls upon walls. Alec's room is just about finished, and once it's complete, I will definitely showcase some photos. I love his little space so much. It really came together nicely. It's a room to grow into for sure. I will admit, I was a bit worried about Alec sleeping in his own room for the first time. Fortunately, from night one, he has slept like a champ and Kiel and I couldn't be more grateful for the alone time. To be honest, I think a little space was really what we all needed.

The rest of the house is coming together slowly. We are doing our best to find a new place for all of our old things. So far, things have transitioned pretty easily. We are still waiting on a few more furniture/decor deliveries before we will feel completely settled in. Despite some unfinished corners, we hosted Mother's Day on Sunday. It was so nice to finally be able to have my whole big family over for a nice meal and not feel like we were sitting on top of one another.

Overall, I am happy. I am so very very happy. The weather is warm, the move is over, and our house is starting to really become the 'forever home' I've always dreamt it to be.

Photos coming soon.
