“Where thou art, that is home.” – Emily Dickinson

fox socks

We made here safe and sound, and I’m slowly emerging from ALL the boxes! More happy: the slipper socks I found at Walmart to keep my feet cushioned and cozy on the tile floors throughout the house.

The night before we loaded up the moving truck, some dear friends threw us an impromptu going away party. I love these people!

Moving day(s) turned crazy. I’d rather jab a sharp stick in my eye than move long distance again. But we got through it, and all survived the somewhat rainy drive. In fact, as Kathryn (and the dogs) and I drove into North Carolina, we literally drove under the arch of a rainbow.

The dogs have adjusted better than I anticipated. The little kids are going to need more structure ASAP, which is why I’ve been so determined to get things unpacked and get the house settled.

Kathryn took a spill on her bike the second day we were here, which put a bit of a damper on her activities for a few days, but we’re all doing well — and the scenery and salt air sure do help.

Linking up today with my friends Kris and Mary.

There is so much about this I love! I know it has been a ton of work but you are living your dream and I am so happy for all of you. Love your new spot by the ocean 🙂

I’m loving those slipper socks, and what great composition in that first photo! I hope everyone adjusts and gets settled soon.


Welcome to North Carolina! How fortunate to find a cute cottage so close to the beach. My sister-in-law lives near the area I think you might be. They love it down there. Hope you all get settled in soon!

Thanks for sharing my post. I am honored to be included.

Congratulations on your new place! We moved two years ago and I hope never again. 😉 I love our new to us house but I thought moving might kill my sanity for keeps. OK, I exaggerate. But it was a really snowy, icy winter and our house was a fixer upper, so I feel a little exaggeration is allowed. 😉
