Have I really been in Texas for four days already?  Each day that passes is an exciting frenzy of nesting.

Mom, Jilly, Sam, and my mother-in-law have all been over helping us to get things unpacked, arranging furniture and even cleaning!  The house is looking great, and I have to say that I'm really loving living in it. I haven't really done much in the way of decorating yet. I've mostly been focused on getting things unpacked and in their places.  Once a few things get hung on the wall, I'll be sure and post some photos.

Today was my first day at our new church. I had such a warm welcome from so many people, and enjoyed getting to meet some of Hubs' co-workers. 

In the words of Annie, "I think I'm gonna like it here!"

Tomorrow (pardon the pun!), Mom, Jilly and Sammy are coming over. Living close to them is the biggest blessing, and I'm so thankful to get to see them so regularly!  

Thank You, Lord, for this beautiful new life.

I'm so glad to hear you are settling in. Of course you received a warm welcome at your new church. I'm sure they knew they'd like you after getting to know your hubs the last few weeks.

So glad you are getting squared away in your new diggs. Can't wait to see pic's!
Blessings to you!

They can't help but love you. :) Reminds me of the story I tell of when I first noticed how handsome my husband is. I mentioned to him that I was going to meet my dad for the first time, and I hoped he'd like me. He said, "Oh, of course he'll love you. Why wouldn't he?"

Same thing. You're too lovable, so they can't help themselves. ;)

I'm SO glad you're so close to family. That is a blessing indeed.

How awesome to finally be living so close to your family...a real blessing! You are going to be able to really see Sammy grow up! FUN!

I am glad things are well with you and your new house. New houses are like a blank canvass, filled with possibilities!

Thanks for the kind words yesterday, I was in need of them more than you could know! Things are better today..:*)
