Back at it...

Here I go...again...

I use to love to blog! Like really really loved it. I had a cute little blog all about my family (here it is http://welcometomommyland24.blogspot.com/ ) and it was so much fun to keep up with. Then I lost interest...mostly thanks (not really) to facebook. Facebook came along and it seemed all the blogs I loved to read dwindled away as mine did. It was a fad and honestly after months of being off fb I'm all done with it. It use to be fun chatting with friends in real time and seeing pics of their cute kids and all the fun things they did. Then it became all about "look at me and how great I am" or people attacking each other for feeling a certain way. It lost all realness and became bad for my soul. So I'm done with that and back to this...writing about people I love and things I love and hard times, good times and everything in between. Back to what is good for my soul...

...so here is the purpose for this new blogging adventure...

WE ARE MOVING

I know you are probably thinking "who cares people move everyday" but seriously y'all I'm not those people. I can count on 1 hand (minus little moves in college) the homes I've lived in. This current home, well, we've lived here 11 years. This is the first home Cameron and I bought together as a married couple. And we are planning to leave it...soon...very soon and honestly I'm not sure how I feel. It's the first home we fixed up together, where we brought all 3 of our babies home too, where those 3 babies took their first bite of food, first steps, said their first words. 

Yes I really am that sentimental.

But we are growing out of it. We need more room. More closets, more bedrooms, more outdoor space for our kids to run around like the maniacs they are. So we have to move. Pick up the memories we've made and take them with us to a new home where new memories await us. And this new home...man it's gorgeous. I feel overwhelmed with luck that I get to live there. It's going to be ours, brand new. Everything in it exactly how we chose and I cannot wait to see it. On a little over an acre so our kids will have space. Outdoor space to be kids, trees to climb like little boys should be able to do. Eventually a pool for us to swim in whenever we want. And a view...seriously y'all the view is going to be amazing. Country. Be still my heart...

But with all that I'm still afraid. Mostly of the unknown because I've never sold a home let alone the only home my family has ever known. Aiden (our oldest) cried a little the other night at the thought of moving everything and leaving our neighbors. Not only am I dealing with moving our things but I'm going to have to deal with the emotions that moving a family from the only home they know dishes out. I'm afraid of building a home from nothing. We've never done that. Thankfully we have an amazing home builder who will take care of most of the troubles but still, it's all the unknown for us.

Saturday evening after I put the kids to bed and cleaned up the house I felt an overwhelming sense that I wanted to document our journey on a blog. Like I said before I love blogging and this is the perfect way to deal with the stress and excitement of all this.

So join us on our journey.

Hello, I'm Jenny a thirty-something wife to my best friend/mom of 3/stay at home mom/Catholic/lover of anything DIY or crafty/baker/and terrified of this whole moving thing. Nice to meet you...
