Hello from Florida! The past couple days have been a whirlwind.... packing galore,a garage sale, visits from both sides of our parents the two days before we moved, teary goodbyes with heart friends, and a teething baby (those darn canines!), 12 hours of driving split over two days, and a mess of boxes still in the process of being unpacked. Whew!
We are pretty tired.
I'll be blogging as we explore our new home. I can't wait to document all the newness around us, but expect it to be slow around here through the next week. For now I will leave you with my first impressions of our new home:
* It's hot, but not that hot. It feels about the same as Charlotte right now, but dare I say cooler? There is breeze always blowing here.
* Our neighborhood is full of the most beautiful oak trees lining all the sidewalks. For some reason I thought Florida was void of oak trees. I was preparing myself to miss NC oak trees like crazy. All the oak trees lining the sidewalks heralded us in as we drove into the neighborhood. I was so happy to see my oak friends, I almost cried.
*There are lots of geckos. I think they are pretty cute.
*Good Lord, there are lots of old people.
I have to admit, it feels kinda strange though to be surrounded by so many of the over 60 set.
*Adoration loves her new room already. I find her crawling into her room to play. This makes my heart so happy.
*There is more space for Adoration to play, for us to be a family, for us to
have people over. It's like I can stretch my legs out and breathe.This makes my heart happy as well.
* I'm still processing my emotions. Somewhere in the back of my mind, I know we don't really
know anybody here and that all my best friends are twelve hours away.
*Sunny Florida really is sunny.
