"When a soul recognises the will of God and shows a readiness to submit to it entirely, then God gives Himself to such a soul and renders it most powerful succour under all circumstances." - Rev. Jean-Pierre de Caussade

It's Official!

Well, it's finally official - Logan and I are homeowners! Pretty cool, huh? We've been keeping busy the past few days, taking out some of the old floor and putting down new pretty stuff. Since we're still in the process of moving in everything, I'm going to hold off posting any interior pictures for now. Here's a picture of the outside - and don't be fooled, it's much bigger than it appears! :)
Our new house! Sorry about the tree in the way - we're planning on removing it!

16 days to go!

Logan and I are going to be homeowners soon. In 16 days, actually. And that thought is pretty exciting and frightening all at the same time. It's pretty nice to have something to look forward to, though. Even though Logan and I had a rough past couple of weeks, preparing to have our very own house has actually been a bright spot. God always seems to make things bearable, in one way or another.

We started the packing process this past weekend, which is not very fun (I'll probably start dreaming about boxes soon). Even though we've only been married for about 15 months, sorting through all your possessions can bring back some memories - some good, some not so good. I have a bunch of pictures and letters back from when Logan and I dated. Funny stuff. Those were my good memories. My not so good memories? Yeah, those came when I packed my maternity clothes and thought about how I didn't even get to wear half of them. And then when I realized I had to pack all of the baby clothes and things we were given for Levi. We have some super cute little baby clothes, and part of me wonders if/when I'll get to put them to good use. As much as I try not to dwell on things like that, it's always at the back of my mind.

Welllll, on a more positive note, Logan and I ordered a washer and dryer for our new house last night. And to say that I'm excited is an understatement. Since we've been blessed to have family and friends give us pretty much everything (furniture and such), the washer and dryer is our first major purchase of something new. So I'm pretty thrilled about it. Laundry will soon be my new favorite chore. :)
