Settling In With More of The Little Things

It has been quite a week! 
Thank you for all of your warm wishes regarding our move. 
I appreciate your kind encouragement.  Seems you've been there before, eh?
In the last week, we've packed, moved, been hit with the biggest winter storm of the year yet, and been trying our best to get our home life and business back into routine.
But I ain't going to lie--there are boxes to be unpacked in every room, toiletries on my dresser, and mass amounts of laundry to be done. 

But we are here, beginning this new phase of our lives in the place
we've looked forward to for years. 
We love our piece of country, and I can't wait to show you around.

Because I haven't had the chance to take many photographs since the move, here are a few from my iPhone during the recent winter blast. 

Follow the bend in the road and take your next right. 
The coffee is on.
I love our neighbors white fence. 
They also have the most perfect rows of trees in their front portion of property.
After our second night, we woke to this.  Fluffy white snowflakes the entire day long. 
It didn't let up until late in the evening.
This photo is looking out my kitchen window. 
We have a deck that wraps across the front of the house to the back, and I just love it.
I keep imagining me, with my book and a tall glass of iced tea, lounged on the porch with a good read--Dandelion Wine, perhaps? in the afternoon summer heat, while the children run around the yard. 
I can't help it.
Last night was the most mysterious, thick with haze, dusk sky.
But it didn't stop Husband from taking the wee ones out for a sledding adventure.
Husband is such a good Daddy and brings so much spontaneity to our home.
Now, they're all set for the bunny slopes.

It's all these little things, that make each day an adventure, and truly, a blessed life.

What are your little things this day?
Please do share and link up on the right sidebar! 
Can't wait to visit!

Wow, it looks so beautiful! It looks exactly the sort of place I'd love to settle, where is it? (we're thinking of moving to Canada, we're going on holiday there in 39 days to see what I think). How far have you moved?

Looks like you are having a fab time already! Hope the happiness continues!

I long for the days to have a view form my kitchen window like that. Eventhought we bought our townhouse last year, I'm ready for a move already, litte more yard. But that will come a couple more years when we have time for a yard, maybe some land. Enjoy your new place.

LOVE the pictures! It may be exhausting to get settled, but it will be rewarding for you. Have fun making it your home. Love you all!

I love it! I might have to join you one of those warm days and let the kiddos run free with yours while we enjoy a good book and an even better chat!

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
