We are here. All the waiting and sacrificing is over. We are in love. Head over heels in love. This swing was one of our first purchases. Emma and I sat in it for an hour yesterday talking and dreaming. I think it might be one of the most important things I've ever bought.
The last week and a half has not been without it's overwhelming moments and unpleasant surprises...but...it's all worth it. We LOVE this house. We are thrilled with our choice. Yes, we have work to do around here, more than we even realized, but we are so excited about bringing our cottage up to its full potential. We keep repeating this phrase to ourselves "One room at a time". It's our mantra. Of course it is nearly impossible for me to focus on one room at a time. I'm not really built that way.
I have managed to paint the trim and walls in both of the girl's rooms and I will share pictures when we get some little things wrapped up. Today I start painting the family room. Don't normal people finish unpacking before they paint? Not me apparently. I just slide the boxes out of the way and paint around them.
I hope you are all well. I hope to be around much more. There is so much I want to share with you.
