I know I have been absent from this space lately and I hope you will forgive me. I owe you an update at the very least, not to mention a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! To begin where I left off, we did not move in before Christmas like I was hoping. We just couldn't get everything done in time and that was fine. No need to put added stress on ourselves - we have had enough of that in 2012 thank you. We did some traveling for the holidays and were able to relax for a few days with family, but mostly we just worked, worked, worked on the house... And I am happy to say we have set a move in date for this coming Saturday!

As I type there are boxes stacked behind me and many more empty ones waiting to be filled. And that picture up there is proof of the amazing family support we have received. My entire family came over and cleaned our house quite literally from top to bottom. There is no longer a speck of dust or a single cobweb hanging from those ceiling beams and the floors are shining. I also would be entirely ungrateful if I didn't mention my wonderful in-laws who traveled four hours one-way every weekend in December to help us finish not only the main floor, but the basement as well. We never dreamed we could get so much accomplished before we moved in and it was because of them it was possible.

We will still have some renovating to do mainly in the bathrooms and we haven't gotten around to the kitchen back splash, but other than that it is basically a new house.

We can't wait to start 2013 off in our very own home, and I can't wait to show you what we've done with the place! I better get Husband working on our internet connection... ;)
