High Five for Friday! This has been a banner week for good things happening… yay! Lots of big decisions were made, and I’m excited to kick off our new life 🙂
I’m sharing the highlights of my week… five to be exact! I love the idea of focusing on five little things that made me happy… definitely a fun way to recap the week and and stay grateful.
1 – Family. It’s such a relief to live (much much) closer to family and friends. My parents have been a huge help during this move – they’ve already made two trips to see us in the two weeks we’ve been here! Now that some of the big things have been settled, we can start having some fun. And soon enough, I hope we’ll be seeing Sam’s family and getting our favorite furry things back too!
2 – New car!!! We are super excited to have finally chosen a new car, and we love it! Neither of us have ever owned a brand new car before, and it’s been super fun to learn all the bells and whistles that come along with it.
3 – Move-In Day. We moved into our new apartment on Monday, after one week of searching. Finding an apartment was a huge weight off our shoulders, and I’m really pleased with our decision! It’s been nice to have a home base to help us feel a bit more settled… now if only our stuff would arrive – it’s pretty echoey!
4 – Appliances. I’m so, so thankful to have our own washer/dryer again! No more quarters or damp clothes or neighbors fighting over the machine. We’re leasing for a year, and our monthly payment is less than we spent on the coin laundry in our last building! Not to mention the dishwasher… I’m pretty excited to be back in the land of modern appliances. Woohoo 🙂
5 – Home sweet home. Our new city doesn’t quite feel like home yet, but we’re getting there! I can finally get to the grocery store and drop hubby off at work without needing Siri or a map. I’m looking forward to exploring our new home when everything settles down – now that most of the big stuff is out of the way, we can get to the fun stuff!
