Settling In

 We're slowly getting settled into our new home. I think it's going to be such a blessing for our family!
 We're maybe 1/3 unpacked and they are still doing work on the house (like putting in a new kitchen!) so we're in that "cold cereal out of Styrofoam cups for lunch" and the "I need a glass of wine but don't remember which of the seven 'kitchen' boxes has the bottler opener in it" phase.
 But the boys are loving it. Their room is like a cozy tree house. I can't wait to finish it and show you pictures!
 And my mom, who stays over once or twice a week, has been working on her little sunny sleeping nook.
 We're so grateful for our friend, Eric (on the left) who bought this place just two months ago when it was in quite bad shape. And when he heard we needed a place fast, he and his wonderful crew worked like crazy to make this house beautiful and available for us!
 (And still managed to have fun in the process) : )

Plus we welcomed home Tye and Andrea yesterday from their adventures in South Africa!

 So happy to have them back! We've already made plans to hit up one of our favorite Cincinnati spots tomorrow morning. Yay!!
I hope your week has been beautiful!

Oh fun! The boys tree house type room looks really cool. Can't wait to see what you do with it :)
