One House of Bull moved in…
We moved into our new house the weekend of November 7th and we couldn’t be happier!  It was a long process moving and then unpacking and my eventual return yesterday to work.

The first week in our new house, it snowed.  SNOWED!  It was such a gift.  I love the snow and for it to snow our first week in OUR new house, it was just beautiful.

The first snow

I spent the last week unpacking as much as I could and trying to get us settled.  Having more stuff than Tony has always been challenging, but it’s also an exercise in thinking about what I really need.  I donated so many things this move, it felt really good to lighten our load and to also know that the things I’ve donated are going to help others.  As I unpack I’m also putting things in the donate pile!  Having a smaller home than in the past (but amazingly enough it feels bigger) has also helped with the “what do we need” situation.
