firsts at the new house

We are finally in the new house.

One week later, gone are the days where I felt overwhelmed by the amount of boxes consuming my world.

Gone are the nights when I felt nauseous of the sight of a scratch in my new hardwood floors.

I just feel...content.

With a new house, we've had a lot of firsts.

The move started nicely. No movers. No furniture. No extended family. Just Dad2Amara, Amara and me.

I simply enjoyed being home.

This is our first family dinner at the Grey House. Freaking McDonald's.

I then looked up to see the sunset from our new front door.


I knew we were truly home.

So before the movers hit the Grey House, Amara and I spent the night there. And I of course woke up to a freshly brewed cup of joe.

And then I walked out to the front porch to put Amara on the school bus for the first time.

Notice the Kent State sweatshirt. That's definitely not something Mom2Amara purchased for her. [snicker]

I am sure there will be plenty of other firsts in the Grey House for our family.

And I can't wait for all of them.

I'm so happy to just be home. Settled. Comfortable.
