There are lots of wonderful things about living up in the mountains. There are also a lot of challenges. Cold. Lots and lots of snow. Wind like you've never felt before. Mama was about to lose her mind being so isolated...so we prayed a lot and waited. And after finding a subleaser within just 1 day of listing it, we headed back to the low lands...with a new understanding that we can LOVE the mountains and enjoy them without actually living IN them. (A side note for those who are new here...we moved to Nederland for a "mountain trial run" with the intent to re-evaluate in July when our temporary lease was up...we just came back down a few months early!).
Lucy (and Bella) are pretty smitten with our new place...and so are we. It's a quirky little house built in the early 1900's...but it was completely gutted and remodeled about 4 years ago. It's got everything on our "list" and we are LOVING being closer to city life again. Oh, and see that little mailbox there? I love having a mailbox ON my house again! Send me a direct email if you would like my new address. (janssenfamily (at) gmail (dot) com)
An empty trailer. Yay! We are getting settled...although with me being 34 weeks pregnant and Matt working full-time, it seems slower than our normal pace. We moved in about 5 days ago and we have have found all the furniture we've needed on Craigslist, so we're super happy about that! I'm in full nesting mode...creating a cozy space for my family and for a new little one. I'm very ready to embrace the final weeks of my pregnancy...enjoying the warmer weather and being closer to my community of friends and family.
