We are officially homeowners!!

Oh my goodness what a crazy last couple of MONTHS it's been!! It has been a roller coaster ride of emotions for sure! After we were finally able to close on our house we were so super excited to get there and look at it through new eyes. We left our closing feeling excited, overwhelmed, but also overjoyed that we were finally home owners! This house has felt like home since the first time we walked through it. 

We were beyond excited to walk in through the front door of our new home!

When we arrived we walked all through the house, and quickly realized that it was pretty warm in there. Now we live in Texas so I immediately thought, oh no. Either the AC isn't working, or this house is just hot when it's 100 degrees outside. We checked everything we could to see if we could fix it, but it just kept getting warmer and warmer in the house. Of course it was Friday, and we HAD to move. So, we went back to our old house, and started loading up. We got a good night's rest and moved pretty much everything else on Saturday. Thank goodness for friends and family who helped us. It went pretty smoothly because of them! After a long hot day of moving, a hot house isn't what we were hoping for. So, my father in law and husband went and bought some window units to get us by. It worked well, and we all camped downstairs. Luckily that only lasted a couple of days, because when the AC repairman came out, he just needed to charge the unit with Freon. 

That Sunday when we were concerned over moving into a new house with a broken AC, and upset that it wasn't going as planned, AJ found what looked like an owl feather outside right in the middle of our yard. 

I immediately thought of one of my favorite verses, Psalm 91:4. 

He will cover you with his feathers,
    and under his wings you will find refuge;
    his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.

I am so thankful for a God who will always cover me with His feathers so that I can take refuge from the storm. We ended up getting the AC fixed for less money than we thought, so all was good. 

I will post throughout our transition of our house into a home. We have a lot of painting to the whole house. It will be a journey, but definitely a journey that's worth it!
