I decide to name this square the Faithful Square. As you all know we have been contemplating our next move and praying when and where that might be. Well we found our new home and closed on it yesterday! Remaining faithful and continuing to pray about where we were supposed to be instead of just jumping at the first house we looked at or re-considering building knowing that there were obstacles that would pro-long the build, moving in, and other issues to follow. We kept our Faith and were content and happy where we’ve been living for the past few months.

Notes

We are so excited to start moving and finally getting to unpack. I hope to be telling you soon that we are no longer living out of boxes and a storage unit. haha! Did I tell you that our new house is roughly an hour away from where we currently live and our storage unit is two hours from our new house?

Over the next few weeks things will really be busy between the move and being out of town for two fiber shows. Even with all the hustle and bustle that will be going on I still tend to bring you new designs and keep you in the loop. So be sure to visit me here on the site, continue to follow me on social media and subscribe to our newsletter if you haven’t already.
