Our cozy home

I know I've been a little cryptic lately.  Essentially we were visiting my parents for the last few days and working our butts off to try and get their house ready to sell.  This has been the routine for at least the last year now, and it's wearing on us all.  It feels like it's never quite going to get done.  But we keep plugging away.  Needless to say we were all really happy to get home today.  I'm always happy to get home.  I love our little house that we have worked so hard on and made into a wonderful home.  I love every inch of it.  There's no place else in the world that I'd rather be then here with my little family.  I admit that I still look at the local real estate and think about what our next house will be like.  The reality of the situation is that there won't be a next house for a long time.  And I really don't want there to be.  It's fun to have things to dream about, but I love what we've done with our house.  I love the way it feels.  I love how happy Bean is here and the memories that we have.  I can't imagine living anywhere else and all of the stress from the last few days melted away as soon as we turned the corner and I saw our little house waiting for us.  I feel so lucky to have such a wonderful place to live and such wonderful people to share it with.  And I'm SO looking forward to sleeping in my own bed tonight.  If Bean lets me sleep that is.


  1. I hear ya! I love my house, too! My parents just moved next door and I thought we did a pretty good job of clearing out a bunch of their stuff but every time I go next door it seems my mother has uncovered more of her "treasures"! They just love their stuff. My Dad is planning on finishing the basement this winter so I am hoping that some of the nik-naks will go down there once it's done. Glad to hear that you are all home and safe and sound!

  2. that firstnight sleeping in you own bed is always the best.... your home sounds so lovely.
