We've Moved!!

Well it was a long journey, but we made it. We bought
The Farmhouse 2 years ago & thought we could renovate it on
the weekends in a couple years. As most of you probably know,
things tend to take twice as long as you think they might.

We also found that working on projects on weekends
(even long weekends) wasn't as productive as we would have liked.
We spent a lot of time setting up & breaking down projects
instead of actually completing them.

So we packed up our "beach cottage" rental & moved out
after being there 9 years. Let me tell you...that is a lot
of time for someone like me to collect & pack away
a ton of vintage goodies.

We spent 2 days packing & re-packing our 20' U-Haul
(after already bringing about 10 truckloads up previously).
We were feeling good on the first day
like we had a ton of space. 

By the end of the 2nd day it was like we were working on
a puzzle to get all of our items to fit in the U-Haul. We filled
every square inch of that U-Haul. When we finally
pulled in to our driveway at The Farmhouse we were so elated!

In order to get the U-Haul back without paying for another
extra day we had to just unload everything into the driveway.
A bit of a mess, but it was a happy mess.

We are so excited to start working on our house & all the
projects that we've dreaming about. We have a ton of good things
coming for 2014, so stay tuned for our new adventures.
