We close on the house today.  No matter how many times I say that to myself it doesn't seem true.  Today.  After a month and a half of living in hotel rooms, of craziness of moving to a new state, and the even crazier idea of buying a house, we're moving into our first home.  Have I mentioned my husband plans to carry me across the threshold?  Because he's very adamant about this.

A new beginning, a new chapter, and in this life I mine I keep wanting to hurry, turn the page and see what happens, but not rush all at the same time.  I want to remember these moments, to have lived them well.  So I'm trying to remain calm, not get upset because it's supposed to rain all this weekend, so moving furniture in is going to about as much a blast as it was to move it out of our last home (read: none).  Except really, if you think about it, it was fun.  It's a story to tell, a moment to remember.  And I wouldn't give a second of any of this back.  


  1. Yipee! Good luck with everything, hope the actual move goes smoothly too.

  2. Congrats to You and G! I hope that you and enjoy every moment.

  3. Goodluck with the move! I will be thinking of you.

  4. It's so exciting!! A new home - a new life to build inside it! I love your idea of candles on the tray in the fireplace and a first romantic evening with G in your new home.......some glasses of wine and hours to imagine and share the possibilities and the future you both will build in the new home!

    Best of luck for the move!


  5. How exciting! A milestone in life to rememeber! And how romantic, carrying you over the threshold.


  6. Owning a home is crazy I tell you.....we still haven't gotten the candles, we've been too busy running around getting things like blinds (so the old guy across the street isn't watching us), and a can opener!

    And sadly, G has still not carried me across the poured the entire weekend we moved in, and with our marble steps, I didn't think it was safe! Hopefully today, since it's pretty. It's symbolic anyways!
