{Operation Simplicity: Why I'm Laughing}

The Lord has a wonderful sense of humor. He knew all along! He knew that as I organized my home, cupboard by cupboard and drawer by drawer, it would prepare me . . . to move.

Just a few short weeks ago we were presented with the opportunity to purchase the home that I grew up in. The kids are beside themselves with excitement, and Jamie and I are, of course, thrilled to be moving into a home of our own.

So my efforts to simplify have already paid off. It should be a fairly easy move (if one can use the words "easy" and "move" in the same sentence). Our soon-to-be home is already vacant, so we're able to move loads over at our convenience. It really is an ideal situation.

The official move will take place toward the end of March. In the mean time, I'll continue to simplify, purge, and pack, eager to bring a sweet little home to life.

We've done it before, and we can't wait to do it again.

  1. The little house on the corner where I used to babysit you? Or the one after that?
    How very exciting for you guys!

  2. I will be moving after May 12th too. Or somewhere in that time zone. I'm excited for the new changes in my life. I'm glad for you too!

  3. The one after, G. We're pretty excited! You can still come babysit, anytime ;).

    And I'm so happy for you, Shirley! Many blessings in the days ahead!

  4. Wow!! How exciting! I love moving- and imagine moving to a home where you have such history!! Pics?

  5. Yeah- I remember some good times in that house! It would be fun to come babysit- just call me when you and hubs are ready to bust out of there for a night on the town.

    I need to start sorting and purging my house. Maybe I'll get to move, too!
