Home is where your heart is...

We are starting to get more settled in our new home. I must say I really love it. We closed yesterday so now the house is really ours! We have been working really hard finding a place for everything and getting more organized. Jake has been quite the Handy Man. He has installed the washer/dryer, put in dimmers and my favorite...the storage shelves! I have been occupied with organizing Sophie's room, the kitchen and our closets. The next step is furniture. How exciting!?! It will be so nice when we have it all set up.
Something that I have really learned in the past year is that no matter what zip code you live in, home is where your heart is. Sophie has already lived in three different states and she is only 1 year old. This is my first time moving away from home too. So an order to put my mind at ease when I am feeling home sick, I tell myself that where ever we are that is home. I miss my family so much, but I know when we see each other again it will be as if no time has past since our last visit. So to always stay true to myself, my heart will be where ever Sophie, Jake and I may live and a piece of my heart will always be where I first called home.

I'm so glad that you guys found your dream house and that it's now becoming your 'home'.... you'll have so many wonderful memories in your first home together! I love the pictures, it looks absolutely beautiful! We can't wait to come and visit in 2010! Love you and miss you terribly... and a piece of my heart will always be wherever you and Sophia Grace are too... love you more than you'll ever know!
