New House Pics---NOT

So I got this amazing MacBook Air from my honey Gary a while back for no particular reason, he just new I hated the laptop I was using and decided to change that for me  (thanks honey!).   I have to say I love the MB Air for sooooo many reasons--the main reasons are speed of powering it up and the other is the fabulous slim profile and weight of it.  What I have yet to conquer is how to cut and paste photos from the web.  I have no problem uploading my own photos but when I try a web pic I get a little blue square with a question mark in the middle.   Well that is not the image I want to share with all of you!!!  

Rather than not post at all today, I am going to improvise and use random photos from my rolodex of photos to insert rather than go out to the web and get more fitting pics.  So here goes....

The move is 'moving' along...

had I been able to capture a web photo--this would have been a turtle moving along very slowly....I think this photo will work in a pinch!

In reality the purchasing process was fairly quick however for Gary and I it has moved sloooooowa because we have truly fallen in love with our soon to be new home.

A little background...

 What movie this is from???  I know.

You see, we are a blended family.  I had a home and two amazing sons (oops, did I just say that?), Gary had a home and two amazing children (yup-did it again!).
We met....

Angels sang

Our overall plan was that I would sell my home, move in with him.  We would then sell his home after a year and we would rent for a bit while we searched for our dream home.  Guess what?  We did all of that with ease.  Up until the one year rent plan....  We rented a lovely cape that certainly met our needs (BASIC needs).  Our intention was to rent for just a year and before we knew it, one year was two, then three, then four!   Life took over at that point and for us that was quite ok.  We have four children between the two of us so you can imagine all of the important things that happen along the way.  A new home was less and less important as we nurtured our children and focused on them during a time of great transition for all of them.

Things settled down and we began looking again at the real estate market.  Long story short, we will be closing tomorrow!  Can you believe it?  Closing on the last day of December and starting the New Year off in our forever home?!

Because we will be closing tomorrow, I will soon have so many more pics and so many more posts.  We have a New Year's  party tomorrow eve as well---luckily we are guests rather than hosts.  We are sharing our New Year's Eve with wonderful friends who matter and will travel into the new year with us.  I feel blessed.

Hope my sparse photos did not bore anyone.


  1. Hi, Lisa - I hope your closing went well. So exciting! Congratulations, again. Wishing you all a wonderful New Year in your new home.

  2. Lisa,

    Please accept my apologies for not getting back sooner!
    I actually used a tutorial from Youtube when I made the lightbulb covers. It was a little confusing at first and it took some time but I finally figured it out. If you have specific questions I could help.
    We have not yet hung the "tapestries" because we still don't have the drywall openings closed up! I will post AS SOON as it happens!
    Congratulations on your new home!



    1. Thanks so much Andie! I can't wait to see the 'tapestries'. Our piano room is coming along, the painter is almost done. I am really thinking a tapestry will work great in that room.

  3. May be useful for all, helpful article once and pardon me permission to share also here :
