This Beautiful Inheritance: Home Is Where The Heart Is

Home Is Where The Heart Is

Did I mention we were moving? Well, we moved! Tyler and I are the proud new owners of our first house! To say I'm excited is an understatement. We've lived in cramped apartments for almost four years now, and with our new addition (actually two additions counting Barnaby), we simply needed more room.

We closed on our new house about three weeks ago and have been trying to get moved ever since. But moving while working full-time and having an infant is no easy task. This weekend was Do-Or-Die time. We had to be out of our apartment by the end of January. Everything was set up to get us into our new house on Saturday, Jan. 30 because Tyler had to work on Sunday. All of our family was on board to help, along with several close friends. However, as you've probably guessed, Mother Nature threw us a curve ball.

The weekend's ice storm frustrated our plans so that we couldn't get up early Saturday and start moving like we'd wanted to. We waited around several hours, not knowing what to do. Thankfully, by the afternoon everything started to thaw out. We moved what we could without help, but most everything had to wait until Sunday.

Since Tyler had to work, it was up to me, my mother and father-in-law, 12-year-old cousin, and homeless guy Larry (true story, very nice man) to move everything we had. Somehow, we got it all done. I couldn't be happier with the results. I'll post pictures of the inside soon, after everything, or at least most things get put away. But as an appetizer, here's the outside of our humble home :)
