We moved this week and I’m writing you from the chaos and beauty that is our new home.
We’re in that in-between phase where we are in our new house, but not quite out of the old one.
I can find all sorts of obscure things like extra shower curtains that I have no need for, but have no idea where some of the important things like dish towels are.
In the midst of the crazy, we have some old friends here to visit and between their kids and ours there are six children between 3 and 11 running around through the rooms that are empty of furniture but full of boxes – any one of which might have my dishtowels in them.
Having guests has made us slow down a bit and do some fun things we wouldn’t have. Like yesterday we visited Glacier National Park. It was unbelievably beautiful.
The funny thing is that we’ve lived close to Glacier for four years, but barely visited. It took out of town guests to get us to go see it.
Do you do that? Do you let life get busy and keep you from doing the great things nearby unless company comes? Sometimes I think I don’t enjoy the things about where I live until I’m ready to show them to people who don’t live here!
