bittersweet

Today is full of emotions for me. We have a contract on our house and close in less then TWO weeks! That brings so much excitement and happy anticipation for the future. But also as I pack up our things, I pack up memories of bringing home two babies from the hospital.

~Countless nights of being pregnant and so so sick which would result in a trip to the OB unit.
~Anniversaries celebrated.
~Birthday parties had.
~Learning patience as our growing family cramped into less and less space. This was SOOOO hard for me!
~Making meals and sweets for family and friends.
~Hearing the laughter of sweet babes echo throughout our home
~Rocking my babies late into the night.
~Being rocked to my core in my professional life as well as my personal life and spending many nights on my knees in my bedroom, before my heavenly father and drawing closer to Him in a way I've never experienced as a christian of 20 years
just to name a few...

I know these memories will be made in our new home. And I'm sooooo excited for almost three times the amount of space! And to paint and decorate! But wasn't prepared for the flood of emotions to come with the move!

When we move into our new home and get settled I'll post pictures as soon as possible!

Amy, you're super creative, got any ideas on creating a pink kitchen?!

Amy said...

Ooh... a pink kitchen would be fun! Is it currently pink or you are wanting to make it pink??

right now it's white walls, white tile backsplash and white countertops with wood (medium tan color) cabinets. I wanna make it real bright and cheery!

It sounds like you could do a lot with it to make it cheery and fun! I would be happy to help if you're serious! :)
