The New Adventure has Begun!

I have so much to share with you- I am so excited! Earlier in the month I told you that we were indeed going to move forward with our house idea- and we couldn’t have made that decision at a better time! While I was away at the Savvy Blogging Summit, my husband was offered yet another promotion that would definitely  keep us in this area and he decided to take it and I couldn’t be happier for him!

About that same time, a house was offered to us and we decided to rent it, sight unseen. Well, we did peek at the outside and decided it would do and we began to eagerly anticipate the day we would leave the camper and move into the house. And though we’ve lived in the camper for just over a year, I have to tell you that the past few weeks have been extremely stressful for all of us. Tempers have flared more over the course of the past couple weeks than in the total 15 previous months! Why? Because once we made the decision to move…it really couldn’t have happened fast enough but though we were ready to go, the current tenant in the house apparently wasn’t as ready to move. We thought my family would be moving while I was in Colorado but the days kept passing by and still we didn’t have the keys in our hands.

With friends scheduled to arrive from Ohio this Sunday, we were really cutting it close, but yesterday (Friday) we got our keys and a peek at our house. After living in such tiny quarters for so long, it couldn’t be more perfect! We are all loving it. So, it is time. The day I have both anticipated and dreaded has arrived. And it couldn’t be clearer to me that after five years of traveling with my husbands job, we are all ready to really be secure when we call something home. No more moving for us. We’re home and I couldn’t feel more blessed.   

Stay tuned…I’ll load a quick tour that my daughter took of the house.


  1. Congrats! I am sure you will all be ready for a new start in a new home! be blessed!

  2. COngrats!!! Its funny how that happens.... how the tempers flare and it is almost unbearable when in transition... especially when being in a rv/trailer is involved... lol...

    HAve fun spreading out!!!! Looking forward to the tour!!

  3. Congratulations!! Sounds wonderful. Have fun getting settled, and decorating, and running around without crashing into each other!

  4. Oh how so very exciting! We have only just begun our RV living so I can relate to that feeling of dread of ever having it to end! But God leads us always and it feels right because it IS right! Many blessing for you and your family on your new adventure of settling down! :)

  5. Cool beans! Can't wait to hear more about your new home! I bet space will be a huge adjustment.

  6. Wonderful! I'm glad you're getting to settle in.

  7. Yay! Glad for you finally getting into a house. It is nice to feel settled. We feel extremely unsettled right now since our house sale fell through, and we only have another few days on temporary living to pay for the hotel. We have to find a corporate apartment pretty darn quick.

    It was really heart-breaking to have to leave the bird. Both the kids were in tears. I was upset too, especially since the airlines completely jerked us around. My only comfort is knowing that he didn't have to go through the stress of traveling as luggage, and the friends there will take good care of him.

  8. Looking forward to seeing the new home and hearing all about it.

  9. I would like to exchange links with your site
    Is this possible?


I love hearing what you think! Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! Blessings!:)
