So I have had LOTS of emails, texts, messages, etc. requesting an update on how we have been since we moved to the farm. I have one word to describe our move – SMOOTH. Eric and his dad are packing masters, and since we (Eric, myself and my folks) had almost our entire house in our garage before moving day, packing the trucks were a breeze. Once we got every thing up to Nebraska, the unloading and re-organizing began. Believe it or not, we got our ENTIRE house in the guest house and it’s garage…everything. I can’t believe that we did it, but we did, even with walking room to spare.
This past week we have had lots of organizing, unpacking and getting ourselves acquainted with our new, albeit temporary, home for the next year. Nora’s room got finished last week and the extra kitchen cabinets got hung to put the finishing touches on our place and that made it really feel like home. I was quite nervous coming back after being back in KC next week; nervous that I was going to have a hard time coming back and not feeling happy to be here. But here I am, happy (and cold) as a clam, and I have God’s wonderful grace and faithfulness to thank. Many of my closest friends have been praying for my heart as we have made this transition; that I would feel peace and JOY here, a sense of belonging and home. I just didn’t think that I was going to feel these things this soon. So to those of you who have been praying for my heart along side of me – THANK YOU! Your prayers are being answered already!
Here are a few pictures of our new place…more window treatments and decorations to come when my mom visits this next weekend 🙂
Love the temporary house! Nora is just too sweet, so glad she is feeling better! How exciting for you guys!!
I'm thankful that God has given you a happy heart in all of this and that the move went so well. Your home is so nice! Why build? I love how you've made it a home and that is really what it's about….coming home. Eric looks so happy!!!! Glad Nora is feeling better. Enjoy adding the finishing touches to your home. It will feel warm and cozy once you have window treatments up. I'll continue to pray for you in this transition.
This post is great. You made me laugh and smile multiple times 🙂

Wow! You have such a wonderful home. It seems that moving to the farm was a great decision. The setting seems so suitable for your family. Anyway, I love your plan of having window treatments. That will really do wonders, seeing as how beautiful the scenery is outside, which can only be more accentuated by the perfect window. I’m so happy for you guys! Thanks for sharing that! All the best!
