holy schmoly!

we have been just as the last post said: busy, busy, busy.  to the point of unbelievably so.  however, some lovely things have been happening that i can hopefully share with you all in a bit.  for now, here's a decently-rounded chunk of news.

we moved. into a house.  better yet, our house :) i guess i need to take a street view shot one of these days, but i did manage to take a few after hanging some art yesterday.  here's our upstairs hallway (camera angled from the stair landing).  seriously.  the first night sleeping under this new-to-us roof, surrounded by boxes of inaccessible belongings, we truly felt like we were home.  it was amazing.  we are still reeling from the speed at which this happened - at the time of the last post, we thought we would be moving in, but a bunch of back and forth stuff made it so that we were unsure we would be able to officially get the house until 1 week before we were due to close - which led to a crazy week of packing, setting up help, cleaning our apartment and giving notice, and more.  enough more, actually, to push dear james' immune system over the edge and we had a midnight ER run to learn he had pneumonia 3 days before the move!
needless to say, life has been chaotic, but wonderfully full of delight and much wanted/needed changes, and we are looking forward to our collective 'spring breaks.'
as i settle into the regularity of a routine again here, i will be better at posting again - pictures of settled corners included :)
thanks for hanging with me!
