I put on mascara today for the first time in six days. No more leaky eyes today as I am almost home . . . my new home in South Carolina. . . and I am so excited!
After six days on the road we’ve officially arrived in The New South and I’m ready for our new adventure! It has been quite a cross country trip with Mr. OTN and three dogs day and night. We’ve made some fun memories for sure.
Right now I’m sitting in a Nashville Hotel lobby waiting to sign papers on the home we sold back in Washington State. The people who bought our home are also signing the paperwork on the house they sold today, as well as on our old house, and we will close on our new home on Friday.
This is it! What do you think? After hours of Internet surfing and a trip out to look at our top picks this was the one that felt like home to both of us. It isn’t at all like my little house on the lake. It is very traditional inside and out.
The moving van is on the way with an “open” delivery date. A five day window of August 28-September 3rd. We may be there for a few days without furniture but when the van arrives they will begin to unload the things we’ve collected over the years. Things that belonged to my mother, things that belonged to my mother-in-law, things given to me by friends. These are the things that will make this house our home.
So I’m sorry for the long absence from blogging. I’ve been a wee bit busy. I may be busy for a few more weeks but then I will return . . . and I promise I will have so much to share!
Blessings to you,
