Rainbows in the Rain January 4, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — lovepaintingrainbows @ 5:30 pm

Don’t worry, I’m still alive!! We have finally moved into our new home and it’s actually feeling like a home. I just got the bathroom and kitchen completely finished, the bedrooms are half done, I cannot see my washer and dryer, and the living room is covered in boxes and toys.
Having said that, we absolutely love our new space! We have a lovely sunny house surrounded by windows, lots of storage, two sheds, a laundry/mud room, two decks, and a fenced in backyard with a swing-set!! We also learned that we have entirely too much stuff! It feels good to start shedding unnecessary items. It’s amazing how much you can accumulate in two years and one baby later. The pre-moving time and moving days were stressful to say the least (hence the “Rain” in my title), but there are many, many rainbows as a result. Mathias is loving the new space and yard and I am loving having painted walls!!
We had wonderful family time at Christmas this year, even though Mathias and I got sick for a little of it. We are having a blast making a new home and hanging out with dear friends/family who share so much Love with us. My wonderful husband told me to leave the house this morning with the computer and go to a coffee shop. Needless to say, I said, “YES!”.  I feel like my mind is calm and quiet for the first time in awhile. But, I’m ready to get back to my homemaking and toddler playing.
I will also be starting a little job this month. Keep an eye out for me doing demos for Nature’s Way products at the Wichita health food stores!! It’s only 3-6 hours a week, which is perfect for me!
I hope you have all had a wonderful holiday season and are starting out the new year with hope and light and Love. I will have pictures of the new place soon!

After thinking about rainbows in my life this morning, I looked at the National Geographic photo of the day and look what I found!

Love, Alisha
