Yup! We sold our house and we are moving! (Don’t worry, we’re staying in town! Not that anyone was asking. HAHA!)
A few things I’ve learned….buying/selling a house is honestly one of THE MOST stressful things I have ever done. AND! Doing all of the final days of this stuff while the stomach bug bulldozes its way through your house is EVEN MORE STRESSFUL. *insert tears. Lots of tears.*
I’m actually laying in bed as I type this because YOUR GIRL IS SICK.
But nonetheless, we sold our home, bought a new one, and we are moving! We are SO excited for this next chapter for us. It is going to be a big change for us. We are downsizing to house that is over half the size of our current house and…WE. CAN’T. WAIT! Haha. We both are so excited for a smaller space and so excited for the people who bought our house and all the room they will be getting in their new home! We will plan to build in a few years when the market is a little less crazy.
We learned SO MUCH through the buying/selling process. I was nervous our house might not sell but something in me a few months ago was telling me “WE NEED TO LIST OUR HOUSE”. A lot of people have reached out and asked if we were doing another big garden this year and sadly the answer is no. I couldn’t justify putting seeds in the ground knowing that our house might sell and we would have to leave it all. So for this season, we had to pass on the garden. And honestly? It broke my heart. I didn’t realize just how much I loved gardening until we weren’t able to do it. I love the whole process. I love that we do it as a family. And I love all the post production reward of canning things for the whole next year. Ah! What a fulfilling good time.
As I type this, the night before we are signing our papers, I have thrown up about 39503 times so far today. M informs me that we have to drive an hour each way to sign our papers tomorrow morning….and need to be there AT 8 AM! A little piece inside of me died. Praying for a good night for me and the baby. No vomit, no diarrhea, and no tears all night long. That’s what I’m hoping for!
I feel like I’ve been SO quiet on social media lately but it’s just because I feel like my life has been in limbo. Like I said, this process has been the craziest! From buyers backing out, going back on the market, deciding we were even going to buy something else because that wasn’t the plan! Everything has just been NUTS! But also, everything has worked out SO BEYOND BEAUTIFULLY. I know God has had his hand in this. I am so beyond grateful.
Now…let’s get to moving!
