Sunday’s Snippets: Moving Day!

Thanks for tuning in for Sunday's Snippets!  For me, Sundays are all about faith and family.  Each Sunday, I take a break from my usual creative routine to share snippets of everyday life with you.  Thanks for reading!


This has been one of the most exciting (and exhausting!) weeks of my entire life.  It has been a crazy blur of packing, cleaning, and moving!  I haven't been this stiff and sore in years!  Anyone want to meet for a day at the spa?

But waking up yesterday for the very first time in our own house was one of the happiest moments of our lives!

Although we had planned to move, we had no idea we would be moving quite this soon!  Because of a variety of circumstances, we realized last week that we would have about 10 days to pack up the old house, clean the new house, move into the new house, and clean the old house!  And because the old home and new home were just blocks apart, we spent each evening taking trailer loads to jumpstart the moving process.

Friday morning, we met to sign papers for our house closing!  We were groggy, tired, and wearing 2-day-old clothes.  But it was a very happy day!


Just a few hours later, Little Man's dreams came true because he helped his Daddy pick up the moving truck!  He has been looking forward to seeing the Uhaul truck for a very long time!

We are so blessed with great friends.  I mean really great friends! We had a crew of at least 12 guys from our church help us with the big move.  They packed up the house and unloaded the truck in just 3 hours.   Not bad!  By the time I made it to the old house to do the cleaning, several of my friends from church had already beat me to it!  I arrived just in time for them to tell me they had finished the cleaning.  The home was all ready for the new tenant to move into that very night!

Like I said... we are blessed.  I so appreciate the generosity and kindness of our sweet friends.

So here we are.  Hello house!

Mr. oopsey daisy keeps asking me why I'm not more concerned with unpacking.  The truth is--I just think it's a miracle that we made it!  I'm counting my blessings to be here--even if it means stumbling around in a maze of boxes!

I hope you're having a fabulous weekend enjoying the spring weather!
