Thankful for: Our Condo

So, I thought I posted this blog on November 1st... but turns out, I don't know how to post from my phone. So anyway... this is a few days late. :) And, it looks funny... but at this moment I'm not gonna retype it. Oh well.

Happy November!

As much as I love October, I am so excited to be passed Halloween... (Some of the costumes I saw were just too much for me!).
November brings continued weather changes (hopefully cooler!), a thankful spirit as we approach Thanksgiving, and the allowance of Christmas talk and jingles. It brings the smells of pumpkin and cinnamon, the coziness of a blanket and a fire, and warm home cooked meals (I'll work on that one).
Change. Ah, how you make me smile.

In a few days, J and I are moving to a little house (although bigger than our condo) with an extra bedroom and a yard for our puppies. We couldn't be more excited to switch up our neighborhood, have a bit of extra space, and start a new adventure. 

With that comes the sale of our sweet condo we've owned for the past five years. I tend not to be one that attaches to places or things, but as much as I love moving and change and am ready for something new, I will miss our first official home. We have invested a lot of time and money into beautifying it and J learned how to be quite the carpenter through all of the work we put into it. We got both Emma and Baker here, which is reason enough to be thankful for this place. We've also grown so much more than I could have imagined both individually and as a couple while living in this home. 

I'm thankful that home can be anywhere we make it.

I'm thankful we could make our little two bedroom condo on Gustavo Street our home. 

Thank you, Lord, for our special condo.
