So the last week has been a total whirlwind of packing, moving, unpacking (and still unpacking) from a tiny 2 bedroom apartment that served as short term housing back into our 2800+ square foot house. To put it another way, you could fit our entire apartment in the basement of our house. That's how small it was.
Let's just say I am so happy to have more space, I'm practically making snow angels out of packing peanuts.
Podlette, my 18 month old daughter is gleefully going up and down the stairs, running from room to room like a spastic jumping bean.
And the WINDOWS....
I need a lot of light. Mostly I think it's because I am from a particularly sunny state (California) and am used to sun, warmth, etc at least 9 months of the year. Fast forward to 5 years ago when I moved to Nebraska and am frequently stuck indoors for weeks, (if not months) in the winter. Our apartment had 3 (count 'em) 3 windows. Total.
The house has 37 windows, and 2 sunrooms. Again, if I could make snow angels in sunlight, I would be. LOL
I look around, even with the piles of boxes still to unpack and I smile. I am so thankful and happy to be HOME.
