We are Moved...

Yes, it is the royal WE.  It is official, we have been moved.  We have been seen, welcomed, warmed.
My heart walnut is roasting.

LOVE LOVE LOVE

We had our big housewarming throwdown this weekend.  I met new people! I talked to grownups! I trusted that my children were fine, almost the whole time!  It was a fabulous thing, I was laughing and bustling and showing off and I was happy . 

Sometimes it is a serious interior gasp when you think about what a rare feeling that is. And so it should be.... the gasp i mean. but anyhow, thats neither here nor there.

The party was warm, the day and night were warm, we had a real live taco truck in our driveway and everyone ate their fill and I had no hostessing stress.  imagine it. no hostessing stress. no dishwashing! even the trash was taken away. this morning i collected empty bottles and juice boxes and wiped up lemonslices and even had a lemon slice for my glass of water.  it was an openhouse, come and go as you please, and some sleepovers and no harm no foul, i say. no harm, no foul.  there were no wifely admonishments towards the HubsJ for being the only latenighter and it was a latenight bonfire sort of night, and I had a great time. great.
great.
I move at my own pace sometimes, and experience a great deal of awkwardness as the lights go down and I can't read lips anymore... bonfires can be downright fraught with peril of the 'pardon?' sort, but this night I just sat and sighed contentedly and all was well.  children in the bonfire light running around the trees.  pretty damn cool. this was one of those summer nights of childhood, the sweaty running, the flashlights, the interior lights, the warmth of the house from the blues outside. everyone and everything was a blur of action and movement...


We are downright moved.
This is our new place... I have high hopes.
