I can’t believe it has been ALMOST SIX MONTHS since my last blog post. I’ve sat down so many times trying to write a post about moving back into a house – and every time I felt so overwhelmed that I didn’t get very far. Between a trip to Alaska to visit family, the transition back into the house, getting the kids settled into school, a few major family crises, the holidays and a new business, I feel like the last six months have been a blur!
We moved into our house in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho on the afternoon of Friday, September 2. The day before my birthday! And just 4 days before SCHOOL started the following Tuesday, September 6. I’m so grateful for that timing. With Jeremy being a teacher and the kids starting a new school I wanted to be in the house BEFORE school started and it barely happened – but it did!
I remember the moment we “moved in” so vividly. We backed the Airstream into the driveway that Friday afternoon and unloaded everything into the house.

It didn’t take long. We didn’t have much. We met our neighbors. The kids played in the yard. My family who lives locally came over to visit. It felt like home so quickly.
That first weekend we had the most gorgeous sunset welcoming us to our new home.
Our trailer. Empty of most of our belongings. We even put the old factory bedding on her . . .and cleaned everything from top to bottom.
The kids (and Jeremy) headed off to school on September 6. . . .
