So now, hubby and I are homeowners! It's the best Christmas present we could ever have asked for. It's amazing how different it feels to have your own home! I love it so much. I can already tell a difference in the kids too...they are trying to let it sink in that we don't ever have to move again, poor dears (God willing, of course.) There is a forest/state park across the street that we didn't even know about, where the kids can go on nature walks (which Jackson LOVES), and where JW and I can run to our hearts' content. There are deer that just show up in our yard. We have a fire pit on our front patio and we actually had s'mores on Christmas Day! All the boxes are unpacked, the house feels like our HOME, and we are so thankful. I am so excited about the memories we will be creating in our new dwelling.
