Take my advice with the home improvements: go slowly. We are in such a rush to make the house our own, and are used to having to move after a bit, so we have been making rush decisions. (Like having carpet installed before part of the basement is fully painted!)
I just returned from a spontaneous trip to NYC with one of my great friends, so I want to be at home even more. It was fabulous, as expected, but home always feels good afterwards.
One of the advantages to having moved around a lot, is having friends all over. Now, I apologize to those friends at this time, because my online presence has been minimal. I haven't returned texts, emails, FB, blogged, etc. I have been in the here and now with the family and where I am right now. I will be back soon! This is a result of my nesting, my retreat, my snuggling in to HOME.

|The easiest decoration ever|
A bit off subject, but we started putting up the Christmas decor, and I must share this with you! I had a coupon from shutterfly to make any photo a stand up, hard plastic/glossy material decoration. I quickly found a free printable online, and used it instead of a photo. Instant Christmas decoration!! It is quite good quality and will last over the years.
I wish you all a cozy and restorative Thanksgiving weekend.
