Moving in and unpacking

I have been writing all of these updates from my phone, and so my updates are lacking in detail. We have the internet set up at home now though, so very soon I will actually crack open the laptop and write in a worthy update with pictures. But in a nutshell, we have moved in and we are in the process of unpacking! 

It’s been such a huge process. We are so blessed to have such wonderful families and friends.

If the latter doesn't get done tonight that's no big deal, I can take my time. The aim for tonight's move is to get the big pieces moved over – bed, desk, dresser drawers, and recliner. My clothes and most of my other things are bagged up ready for relocation. The bonus of moving into a place where I have a fully furnished living room and kitchen means the amount of stuff I need to move will be minimal. It's nowhere near as complicated as a full house move! [...]  read more
