Hidden Treasures

 

I am loving my new house! 

I am finding joy in the little things.  How deep my new kitchen sink is, how much bench space I have when making school lunches, and how fantastic it is not to have to walk from the shed around to the bathroom!

I've had such an exciting day today! I decided to unpack some boxes from our storage room.

I came across some wonderful treasures that I haven't even thought about in four years!  As I unpacked each trinket, or photo frame, I noticed that the newspaper wrapping was dated October 2008.

And as the emotional mush that I am, the tears started and I had a cry.  A happy cry that is!  I just thought about everything that we had been through, my miscarriages, a sick child, years of planning and building and working and stressing, and thinking that I would never be unpacking these boxes.

But we did it, and now all of that can be a sweet memory.

I cooked lasagne in our new Glem oven, and we sat on the deck and had our first meal together as a family in our new home.

And it was beautiful.

I'm so excited for you. Finally moving in to your home congrats. We are hoping to make the move to farming
And after reading your blog maybe living in a shed while building may be a great idea & a huge money saver instead of renting in town and building as well.
I have recently set up my own blog athomemummy.wordpress.com you should come on over sometime :)
