Ack! I took some (what I thought were) really cool perspective pictures of our house in its current state: boxes, unpacking, some great rooms looking livable and some rooms in a hurricane of little girl clothes of different sizes. But I left my camera cord at my mum's. Oh well! Thus is our life right now. I'm making do with a laptop picture.
Tonight I put the girls to bed, unpacked one box of china and now I'm sitting with you, doing something that feels regular, for a change. I'm enjoying the first night here doing just this: writing some thoughts out, sitting on my couch with Skylar, sipping tea in the quiet of the night. I'm watching Sister Wives and missing my pseudo-sisterwives from the North, feeling glad I have just the one awesome husband, indulging in guilty pleasure TV that I can pause when a baby stirs. This feels really good. I'm comfortable in this house after a few short days.
We've had family over at our table for dinner: that was a 'we made it' moment. It felt so gratifying to look around at these faces, watch our parents interact with our girls, pass the salad and I teared up. We are home, in our home, with the people we love, sharing food. How blessed am I?
