Hello! It’s been one week since we moved into our new home. We are doing a two-phase move because we left our previous home staged for showings. Now that it’s under contract (WOOO!) we’re planning to move the rest of our furniture within the next few days.
Here’s a photo from our first morning in the new house. Every morning we eat breakfast besides the windows and watch the sun rise. It’s definitely my favorite thing about the new home, and we are fully enjoying having outdoor spaces as well- we’ve been picnicking outside almost every night when it’s warm enough.
With the virus and everything we’re planning to stay home quite a bit and so I’m pretty anxious to get a little more settled so it feels like home. Not the best timing for a big move- but what can you do? I have to remind myself probably ten times a day that it’s totally OK that our home isn’t “finished” and that we have everything we need. And that if I’m feeling unsettled that it doesn’t mean anything is “wrong”. I knew I would struggle going from a totally completed home to a home that needs a lot of work- so currently I’m just working on settling in for a long renovation. It will take a few years to make this house into our dream home- and that’s a project I signed up for and wanted. It’s really just a perspective shift at this point- for me to learn to not let it bother me. I’m pretty confident within a month or so I’ll stop feeling this way.
The girls have been champion movers and settled into their new bedrooms and new school almost immediately- which was so comforting. We’re currently focusing on making fun memories here and letting them “help” with as much as possible- for example this morning Nova helped Jeremy organize the garage… she was so proud of herself!
Thank you for all the love and support. It’s such a strange time to be alive, but I’m more grateful than I’ve probably ever been just to be healthy and be able to spend my days getting exhausted with these little girls.
Take care of yourself! xx
