Happenings of Late

Hello Readers! Things have been a little busy around here lately. Nathan was offered and accepted the job in Sioux City, Iowa a little over a week ago. We are scheduled to roll out of Charlotte a week from today on the 26th. Of course this means that we have been feverishly packing all of our possessions. I feel as though we won't get it all done in time.

It looks like an explosion went off in our house and a few things made it into boxes.
I'm trying to move all the boxed up items into the spare bedroom but I'm getting tired of moving boxes from one room to the next.

Nathan's been taking things down (like curtains), cleaning out and selling things on craigslist. This is one time that I'm glad Nathan has extra stuff he doesn't need.

Packing has taken precedent over even the clean laundry. It seems weird to fold it and put it in a drawer when it will be taken out and put in a box by Saturday. At least it will be clean when we get there.
Please pray for us as we strike out on our adventure. I can't wait to share pictures of our new town & home when we get there! Stay tuned...

Do I Not Have The Best Husband!

So Nathan has been away in Iowa for the last week. Before this we had only been apart for 1 night. I have really missed him this past week. Today when I went to get the mail there was a package on the front porch and a postcard in the mailbox. The postcard was of downtown Sioux City, Iowa and he wrote me the sweetest note. In the box was this great jar to go in our vintage fridge and...

...the cutest salt and pepper shakers I have ever seen!!! They are already on my table along with the fantastic vintage tablecloth from my mother-in-law.
2 hours till his plane lands!!!
