Today .... was the day!

A few posts ago, I talked about our new home in Georgia ... and how it came about.


Well now it's officially OURS!



I can't even begin to tell you how excited we are to start this new chapter in our life! It won't OFFICIALLY start until after Princess and Wild Child get out of school, BUT it will be here before we know it. All in all, it was a relatively SMOOTH process! There were a couple nutty things that happened, that I, of course, blew completely out of proportion, while Big Daddy rolled his eyes at me and told me not to worry about it. Of course, he was right.

I snapped this picture with my phone the last time we were in GA visiting. How wonderful it was to just walk around the corner from my sister's house and be at our home. I see 2 big planters flanking either side of the door but I also see trick-or-treaters, sitting on the top step watching the kids play, and most DEFINITELY a family picture as soon as we settle permanently.

But do you see the light at the top? Funny, isn't it? I think it's beautiful and it makes me smile just looking at it - knowing all we went through just to get here.
