we are home!

Untitled-1

I am happy to report that on Wednesday evening we pulled into the driveway of our new house on the Oregon Coast! Our little caravan arrived in one piece- exhausted and nerves shot but in one piece- to the sun shining and fresh Oregon air (there is nothing quite like it). It only took us two days of driving to get here but those two days may have been the longest days of my life! I though going through childbirth was hard- NOTHING compared to being in the car with a 8 month old, teething, tired, wiggly baby!!! Except for a few minor episodes- Lucy did as good as possible and thankfully I had my mom in my car to help out with the driving.

We are now unpacking and getting settled into our new home and really just trying to take a little time to decompress and take some time to rest and just enjoy each other!

  7. Congratulations on your new home and arriving in one piece! (It sure beats arriving in more that one piece! LOL) Take a nap with your baby and hubby, and save opening the boxes for another day... expect maybe that one with the coffee pot in it... you may need that in the morning. :)

  15. Congratulations on your homecoming! So nice to see that you'll have rhodies growing near your home. They are always how I remember Oregon. I'm sure they'll provide hours and hours of sketching inspiration. Happy for you and your family!

  24. welcome to the pacific northwest! honestly....you're going to LOVE the oregon coast! there's no better place in the world to create and dream and imagine. you'll like branch off in an entirely new direction with all the loveliness around you. we live in washington state on a tiny island overlooking a puget sound harbor and i love it here. but we always travel to cannon beach every single year with our family to fill our reservoirs. if you haven't been to cannon beach...you need to go. the feeling there is one of inspiration and creativity and it's probably the closest place to the gods of creativity than anywhere else on earth. welcome to the northwest. we're so glad to have you!
