It’s been weeks since I last posted here. It’s been an insane month but one that I wouldn’t trade for anything.
After finally closing on our new home, we’ve spent the last month moving in and getting the house ready for Christmas. It’s becoming a home now, and for that I am thankful. More space means that we have plenty of room for all of belongings but also for our families and friends. We planned on hosting my parents, brother and sister in law on Christmas Eve but a record-breaking blizzard in Tulsa prevented them from driving the hour from Stillwater. That snowfall didn’t prevent my in-laws from visiting on Christmas day though, and we had a fantastic lunch and afternoon spent opening gifts and spending time together.
We are now planning a New Years’ Eve party for our friends — the first in our 10 years together. I’ll try to post again soon, but I do hope you each have a wonderful and prosperous New Year.
It’s been about a year since I started this blog and, while I’ve not been the most consistent writer, I’ve enjoyed having an outlet for my thoughts and opinions. Given that it’s November, a time for thanksgiving and celebration, I thought I’d take a moment to thank those of you who read my blog on a regular basis. I see the stats and appreciate the comments and feedback I receive more than you will ever know.
At the same time, I have to share a bit of my own thanksgiving. First, I’m thankful for a family who loves me — my husband, parents, brother, in-laws and extended family beyond that mean the world to me and I’m grateful every day for the people in my life who have shaped me into who I am today.
I’m thankful that my dear husband and I are now in a new house. We closed on Wednesday, November 25 and moved in over the holiday weekend. Initially we were scheduled to close Thursday, November 19, and I would then host Thanksgiving for 10 (insanity!). However, that didn’t work as planned so instead Thanksgiving was spent at a hotel buffet and moving. It was still special. I truly am thankful for the new house and appreciate my family, who was willing to help us get settled.
Again, thank you all for reading my posts. I hope you had a fantastic Thanksgiving and look forward to the holidays.
