Please excuse. . .

my lack of posting over the past few weeks. And I am sure it will continue over the next month or so as we are going through this whole moving process. Don't worry we are still going to be the Florida Hogan's but we are relocating to another part of the state, and not even too far just about 45 minutes or so. Just close enough to that my husbands work commute doesn't take over an hour to get to each way :-)

Lots of things going on here... lots of emotions flying all over the place. One minute I am super excited about moving and the next I am sobbing uncontrollably. Go figure! I am an emotional basket case!

The boxes everywhere are overwhelming me. As my hubby is packing, I stand there staring, like is this really happening? Growing up my family stayed in our house our entire childhood so I do not know what its like to just pick up and move. I think that is why I am having such a hard time. I know in the end this is the best choice for our family but as we are going through it I can't help to just sit and think of all the firsts we have had in this house as a family, and that in itself is so hard for me. So I am hoping with the coming weeks all my sadness will fade and it will be filled with all happiness, but we'll see.

Our new house is beautiful! Love, love, love it! Of course it needs to have some touches added to it to feel like our home and not just a home. Our plan is do all the painting, well at least most, before we move in that way we can have a easy move. But we'll see how it goes. Everything always sounds great when you say it but when you actually get to it, its a whole other thing :-)

In the meantime here is a picture of the front of the house. More pictures to come soon! :-)

Moving is so stressful, especially when you have children. My little guy was a little under 2 when we sold our home and downsized. I wasn't sure how it would impact him, but he seemed to adjust very well.

Good luck. Your house is beautiful and I'm sure you will make it your own. :)

Beautiful house! I love columns on a house, it just adds so much to it. Good luck with your move, I'll be praying everything goes smoothly with adjusting to a new place!
