Abode a la mode

We have new digs! Living in this new house is like topping each day with a little scoop of ice cream. My days are generally good; great husband, great kids, health, job, car, etc. But this place just adds a little more pleasure to the moments. I'll list my favorite things: Jacuzzi tub. Two kitchens. Central vaccuum. A backyard. Cul de sac. Nice neighbors that don't do drugs or beat each other up, a huge step up. In fact, one of our neighbors actually offered to pay her daughter to come and be a mother's helper to me, free help, wow! Our own walls. One set of stairs. A/C. I could probably just bold that whole list and I could probably just keep going, but suffice it to say, I'm very, very happy to be here.

Before you go thinking that we could actually afford such a pleasurable house, I'll tell you that we are so blessed to be the lucky ones to rent this place from a lovely couple while they serve a mission for our church. I hope they extend their mission. Three times. We will be very sad to go! But living here will give us something to shoot for in the future!

Here's my favorite room:

As you can see, the kids love it too.

I'll post more pics soon, but not every room is totally settled yet. Come visit us anytime, we have a guest room waiting for you!

  1. Sounds wonderful! I love the white, crisp kitchen. I think my kitchen might look cleaner that way!
