Our New Adventure!

Remember me? It has been over a month since I have posted on my blog. A lot has been going on.....all good stuff, just really busy.  The biggest change for me ( family) is that we moved to Elora.  

We had been talking about moving for about a year and we made June our goal to have our house listed.  At the end of May we went out 'looking' at houses only to find one that we really liked.

We ended up putting in a offer that was accepted and we had our house on the market within the next week.

Our house was on the market for one day and sold.  They buyers moved our closing date up from August to July.....which meant we were moving in less than 30 days!  The next thing we knew, it was MOVING DAY!

With the help of friends and family we packed up and moved out of our Waterloo home and into our Elora home on the same was 42 degrees out and poured rain off and on all day!

It has been an exciting time with emotional ups and downs.  Two days after our move I was convinced we had made the biggest mistake ever and I wanted to undo everything.

We have been in our new house for a little over a month now, and it is starting to feel like our home.  Things are finding their place, new routines are forming, and new memories are being made.  It is really hard to move away from a home we lived in for 14 years.....where we raised our three children.

The kids are starting to hang around a little more, although they do travel back to Waterloo to be with their friends.  I hope that their friends will start to travel this way and visit us here too!  They are always welcome.

I am looking forward to hosting visits to our friends in the near future and in the years to come.  I will continue to blog about our new adventures (there have been lots already), so I hope you will visit me here and see what we are up to.
