Wow. Where to start?!
Last year was a bit of a blur. Life got overwhelming and crazy and wonderful. Not everything was great but the year ended amazing. And so far 2018 has been really good.
We decided to move at the beginning of last year; sell our house and find our forever home. We wanted to purchase something a bit nicer, bigger and in a great neighbourhood. This meant we had to head out of the city to find something we could afford. This lead to months of stress while we got the house ready, had house viewings, open houses, and then finally we got an offer! We were left with a short closing date so we had to go crazy looking at homes quickly to find something sooner than later. Well, we found our dream house! We had about a month to pack up our house and move into the new place. It was nuts! But it was all worth it.
This past summer we also found out I was pregnant. We were over the moon! But also shocked and amazed since it finally happened. I feel like the summer was a very surreal time for us. There was so much excitement but also fear of something bad happening. Plus with the stress of selling our house, I was scared I had too much on my plate. But things continued fairly smoothly during my pregnancy.
Today I sit in our new house with a 7 week old baby girl and I’m very happy. Don’t get me wrong, life isn’t perfect. But I’ve found peace. I’m in a good place. I’m doing my best to find joy every day, in every little thing. And this little girl has made my heart overfill with love. I’m so excited for this chapter of my life.
