moving week...

...it was the best of weeks...it was the worst of weeks...


as  you know...we've been packing up our 'home' for the big move...


the winter weather hit the southeast pretty hard this week so we had to hit the road in our big yellow moving truck a day early.  {and by they way...that big yellow moving truck wasn't quite big enough to fit all of our stuff...ridiculous...i knew i needed to purge!}
we arrived to johnson city all in one piece on sunday morning to face our biggest obstacle of all...the driveway.  with a little salt and a little shoveling we were able to get the big yellow truck up the hill...hooray!
but this has continued to be the view from my front door all week long...
...i know that at some point all of this snow will probably start to annoy me but for now it is still unbelievably beautiful.
the week has been full...one of the most physically and emotionally draining times that i can remember. i have hit my pillow hard every night.  there are still boxes to unpack, corners to clean, a fairly lengthy handyman list for uncle robert to tackle...i still can't figure out what the heck we did with that black mesh trashcan or my favorite candle...but we are definitely getting settled in our new home and i am thankful beyond words for the people who have helped to uproot our family and then gently plant us here in this new tennessee soil.  once i get a few days of good rest under my belt i want to share more with you about that.  until then...a few pics of the moving excitement...
sometimes we misplaced the kids...
...moving boxes provide plenty of entertainment...
{yes...i know..lucy is not only in a box - she is also right in the middle of a fashion emergency...hey-she's 2...and we never left the house that day...}
...'look buddy, there's even a little window'...

night night from our new home
