We’ve spent the weekend moving into our new (but I really should say old) house!
Here it is and it’s older than the constitution!
The house was built circa 1785 and is part of this teeny crossroads historic town in the NJ countryside. It’s been a huge ordeal just getting here as the move-in date was pushed back months and months due to repairs and negotiations. Despite it being built so long ago, from all accounts it’s actually in great shape. I can’t decide if it’s the best decision we’ve ever made or if we’re bats**t crazy, but a friend who knows us well and is pretty truthful grinned when I said that and replied, probably a little bit of both!
The best news is that Lucia really seems to love her big, light-filled room, there’s views of a gorgeous, historic church across the street, and I’ve already seen tons of butterflies, birds, and bunnies out here. We’ve been really thankful not to be in a flood zone this weekend and for all the help from friends with meals and unpacking. Can’t wait to get out and explore the area when things dry and would love to hear all your favorite links for home knick knacks and furniture!
But we’re settling in on this torrential downpour of a weekend, and with internet and a morning off from church, I thought I’d post some links, too. Hope you’re staying dry and hanging in!
This cartoon by a man on becoming a father of a child with special needs was really powerful.
“Could Women Be Trusted with Their Own Pregnancy Tests?” The surprising history of the drug store variety!
I’m so excited for the Olympics, especially the gymnastics, but I couldn’t agree more with this blogger!
An issue that’s very important to me, and it’s vital that we recognize we’re not hearing much of the truth these days.
My aunt who lives in Plymouth took it very seriously to teach me the ropes at young age; Still yearning to eat a lobster before the summer is over!
What are you up to in August?
