I think I can...I think I can...

To say life has been crazy would be an understatement.

I'd list all that we have been doing but I'm too tired to type and re-live it.

We're two weeks away from moving day, which means just days left in this sweet little cottage of ours. I haven't let myself "go there" but it's all starting to hit me slowly. I'm trying to savor each day and store away all of the memories that have been made as I pack things up and take things off the walls. 

These walls that hold countless and precious memories, walls that were hung by my husband, dad and father in law. This home holds our blood, sweat, tears and countless prayers that have been prayed and answered. There hasn't been a day that has gone by that I haven't thanked the Lord for this home. I'm thankful for the love that has filled these walls, for the protection it provided, for the blessing it has been to others and for the memories we will hold in our hearts forever. 

My job has been packing the entire house while my man works extremely hard at the office and at school. I seriously come across treasures new and old weekly as I sort through cabinets and such. 

My Vintage silver set from my grandparents.
Oh how I can hardly wait to have a dinner party in our country home and use these!

From one of my dearest friends, Rachel.
We each have a set & plan to drink sweet tea & have skype dates with our redneck  southern girl glasses.
(until we convince them to move with us!)

Boxes everywhere! 
The OCD neat freak inside me is going crazy y'all!

But we're almost there. I see the light at the end of the first leg of this journey. Everything is coming together and we are literally in awe of how things have and are working out. So many things have been confirmed countless times and literally every single one of our prayers have been answered thus far. Our hearts are beyond grateful to the point I'm not sure if I'm crying happy or sad tears anymore. 

Closing the chapter on this book is bittersweet but as we get closer to turning the last page there is sunshine and a whole new story ahead. 

Please keep my sappy heart in prayer these next couple weeks and remind me whats ahead so I can stop crying. 

Love y'all.
