At last

It has been a lot (and I mean a lot) of work but we are finally moved into our new home.  I am so happy to say it was worth the wait.  I have a peace (and a piece) about me that’s been missing over the past several months.  I feel refreshed, even though there are boxes to unpacked.  I feel refreshed, even though I have hiked flights and flights of stairs.  I feel refreshed, even though we’re going to bed late and waking early.  I feel refreshed, even though nearly every muscle is still aching.  I feel refreshed.

Beach 1After a day full of unpacking we headed to a beach that is very (and I mean very) close to us.  What a perfect way to unwind a bit.  Walking on the sand was like my own personal foot massage… ahhhhh.

Beach 2This pretty much sums up how we are all feeling!!

Thanks for all of your well wishes.

I’m off to unpack more boxes.  Refreshed, that’s me.

It must be a such a great feeling to finally be home. Moving in is never easy but the rewards of being where you want to be is great. Your beach looks so inviting. Congrats!

Carin,
I just stopped by from Miti's at Pieces of Me. I absolutely love the picture of your three boys in your title. How moving it is to see them all holding hands and heading in the same direction together. It most definitely moves this momma's heart.
I am glad that I stopped by. I love your blog. I would like to come back and get to know you better and visit some more. If you are interested, I would love to have you stop by and meet me and my family as well.

Ps I can not believe you live so close to the beach. That is wonderful!

Glad to meet you,
Christy Rose
