A Day in the Life: Home Sweet Home

We've been in our home for a little over two weeks now and I feel like we are still honeymoonin'/transitioning/adjusting/discovering/moving-in/unpacking/and all else that falls under the move-in-to-your-first-home category.. This home has been sweet to us and we are so excited for the years and memories that are to come here! But, as sweet as it has been to us, there has been a bit of sourness that has been mixed in. Not from the home itself, but from the challenges of uprooting two little ones from the home they knew to a whole new and larger space with a 7-acre playground as a backyard.

I've been silent on the blog because I've been so busy with helping the boys with this transition that has proved to be challenging for them and therefore, me. But, I can say this, I have missed blogging so very much! I've missed having the time to share my thoughts and heart. I've missed writing, sharing, capturing, and I've missed reading and commenting on all the other blogs I follow. The ones that I find so encouraging.

At the end of the day, after all the fussiness, teething, and poor sleep, my heart is happy. Happy in our new home. Happy that our little family has this beautiful and simply sweet space to make memories and grow in love together. Happy.

Here's a little preview of what our daily happy looks like:
Endless places to play!
Playground right oustide.
This little window is a daily hot spot for the kiddos.
As is this sliding door that leads to the great outdoors that promises all the adventures these little boys desire.
Love these little toddling feet!
Reading space.
Love them together!
My heart smiles with this one when he shares his sweetness.
And, I love his bed head. Everyday.
Then there's this door that leads to 7-acres of joy.
Bed head hair. Love it. Always. and, Again. 
Patio goodness with a cutie and a beautiful tree.
My toddler-dinosaur man.
Wishes and wants. Play and fun.
And then there's this face that has managed to infiltrate our time. Teething, allergies, and transitions are not our friend, but we're still soaking up all the goodness that this place has to offer. 

So, here I am, sneaking away while the littles sleep (Miracles do happen.) with the hope to share more as we find ourselves more and more settled in our new home-sweet-home.
