Time to Go

I packed my clock today.  
Somehow it makes the fact the moving truck is coming in three days seem very...official.

 It's the clock that sat on my mantel.  Here's she was last summer.

 It was my first time to really try to put together a mantel arrangement I loved. 
 I had so much fun with it.

We won't have a mantel in our new home
but I'm confident the clock will still find a happy place to sit.

Things are starting to feel pretty harried around here.  It's the typical moving scene -
boxes everywhere,
 filing project finishing up today, 
laundry piled high, 
children a little frazzled by the confusion and anticipation of something new.

Sister and I didn't get to go paint the kitchen like we hoped as the current homeowners got delayed on their moving out.  So this is not what it looks like...but I did decide to go all white 
Love this whole look.

So yes, these cabinets are still waiting for me.

Make that a whole house waiting for me.

Make that a whole new life waiting for us.  
ready or not - here we come!


  1. Oh Cailan, we will be praying extra for you all this week. Looking forward to seeing all you do to the new home.

  2. blessings on your move. you'll love Iowa (but I'm a bit biased) ;)

  3. Good luck and do enjoy the journey. It's a new chapter for you! Embrace it. We'll all be watching and wishing you well!

  4. So excited to see what all you do with the new house! Thinking of you as I know it will not be easy to leave behind Sister & Mom. Your blog is such an inspiration!
    p.s. I always have to check anonymous because I don't have accounts with the other choices.

  5. Wow, 3 days!! Amazing how fast the time has gone by... praying for you all!!!
    I do LoVe the white kitchen. It'll be so fun to see the change that makes. I'm envisioning it with your lovely turquoise/teal table. So pretty and fresh. Wish I could just hop on a plane and help you paint!
    Well, so excited to keep updated with you through your blog at least. The Lord bless you with a very smooth move and strength and protection and cheerfully brave hearts. He is ever with you! Hugs to all!!!

  6. I hope it all goes well, and I can't wait to see what you do with that lovely house.
