new painting and a new place to live

A little couple's portrait for The Daybook giveaway winner.
Loved painting all their awesome freckles!

Over the course of about 10 days, we basically decided to move, have found a new place, and will be packing up and moving in the next two weeks. 

So things are getting a little crazy around here. 
But we love it. 

We are super excited about our new place. 

It...
is in pretty much the same neighborhood (which we adore). 
is a cute, red brick duplex (no more basement living!). 
has brand new refinished, beautiful hardwood floors throughout and fresh paint. 
has lots of huge windows.
has a clean tub (do you know how hard it is to rent a place with a decent tub!?).
has tons of storage space.
has a separate garage that's all ours (Scootie will love that). 
has a great price tag. 

We can't wait to move in and start setting things up! 

In light of this new development and some other things, 
today I am feeling overwhelmed with gratitude for all that my Heavenly Father has blessed us with.
It's always amazing to see how everything falls into place at exactly the right time. 
My faith in His specific plan for Sam and Chas is growing.
