We've Moved! Sorry for my absence...

This was the big week - we've packed, and packed, and packed, said goodbye to Concord Mass, then said goodbye to Boston, flew home yesterday morning, arrived yesterday afternoon and have finally settled in... temporarily as we bounce from our parents' to parents' homes.  We close on our house at the end of next week!  Until then, I'll be without kitchen and craft room so I'll be sharing more inspiration, plans and purchases for the new house.  Look for those all next week.

Today, I'm sharing our first 'real' family photo that we had taken over the 4th of July weekend.   Thanks Claire Ryser for great photos!  I'll be sharing the photos of Emma and Sam in the next couple of days!

Have a great weekend!

All photos by Claire Ryser.

    Gorgeous, gorgeous looking family!

  3. Sorry we missed seeing you again before the return trip! Glad to hear the trip back went well. The pictures of you, Mike, and Emma came out beautifully!

  4. What wonderful family photos! Congratulations on the move. Can't wait to see pics of the new house! ~ Carrie

  5. Congratulations on the move - you must be so looking forward to moving into your new home, and starting with your decorating...I'm looking forward to more of your inspiration posts!

  6. It was wonderful serendipity that you and Mike should land just across the street from us in Concord. It’s rare to find people as genuine and lovely in person as in an online presence. Thank you for coming out this way for a while, leaving behind your ‘footprints.’ You helped make our days more beautiful. (Now come back, we miss you!)

    Jenny and Mike Barker
