After seven loooonnnngggg months, we are finally moved into our beautiful home. If you’ve been following along in our journey, you know we chose a modular home and put it on an acre of land on my parents property in the middle of nowhere-ville.
We’ve been in here now for over a week and it’s been glorious. I’ve enjoyed making it our own and seeing things we haven’t seen in seven months that have been buried in storage (and realizing we can live without so much junk!)
I wanted to bring you all on a room-by-room tour, and we’re starting with our own little oasis–our master suite.
I wanted to thank you all for sticking with us through this journey.
Six months ago we said goodbye to our first house, our beautiful city, and our incredible friends and family and moved an hour north, into one room of my parents house.
Fast forward to today, and we are still living in that one room, but we are in the home stretch (no pun intended) of our modular home being finished and we couldn’t be more thrilled.
I still remember the raw emotions.
Excitement, fear, worry, happiness, joy.
I still remember praying endlessly the entire 17 hours before they said “it’s time to do this.”
And then the following 4 hours of pushing.
And then the hour in the operating room.
And then the most pleading prayer of my life when you didn’t cry.
I’m sitting in my unfinished basement.
On a lawn chair.
With no idea what this post will be about…
it did what God designed it to do. it’s perfect in all its imperfections. it’s beautiful even when it makes me feel the opposite. it’s about time i embrace it all.
I try very hard not to care what other people think. But sometimes stereotypes and stigmas get the best of me.
So when my mom showed me a Craigslist listing for a modular home in December, I blew her off immediately. There was no way I would live in one of “those”.
Let me start by saying that I’ve been fortunate enough to have not lost anyone in the armed forces. My heart breaks for those that have. I do not write this post lightly. Please know if you have lost someone, you’re being prayed for.
