My He(ART)-Full Life

today...

We are trying to settle in...you know how it goes. Putting things away, unpacking things I had completely forgotten about and things we just can't seem to find (phones, the screws to Tara's crib!!), boxes and stuff...everywhere. But no complaints here...I am so thankful that we found this place. And can I just say how ecstatic I am to have my clothing...I was getting sick of wearing the same few things every day! Tara is just loving the backyard...there is so much space and new discoveries...and the weather here has been amazing...sunny sunny sunny. Amidst all the hard work today, Tara and I still found time to have some playtime...so fun! And can I just say that I feel really old today. I know, I know...a few weeks back I wrote a post on my birthday that was a completely different story but today...today there are aches and pains (and even creaks!!)... my face is fat and puffy. I could go on ...It just kinda' snuck up on me! Just had to get that out!

Congratulations! I cannot wait to see what magical things happen in your beautiful home! Ah, just seeing green and sunshine does a lot for my weary winter soul! And Tara, she is the perfect little flower bud brightening every shot!

I am laughing over your creaks and cracks ... something happened to me over the summer and I am aware of all these new "issues." Ah, aging ... it is, um, interesting?

Big hugs! xo Lis

What a gorgeous deck with a view! How exciting Soraya.... even though your bones are creaking and you are achey. No surprise! Moving can make you use muscles you forgot you had with all the bending, carrying and lifting. Tara looks as happy as a clam doesn't she?! Hope you find the crib screws soon. So glad you are settling in. Love your arty gloves in the next post too.
