Home, Sweet Home

We survived the move (although it was pretty touch and go at times) and I'm here to prove it.  The boxes are all mostly unpacked, the house is organized and the decorating has commenced.

And just to prove that we are now new home owners, within a brand new community, I will regale you with pictures of our first trip to the mail box:

Here we are starting the adventure.  The air is thick with excitement. Hartley is straining with anticipation!

So much anticipation, in fact, that it excited the pee out of him.  Must stop for bathroom break...

Fully relieved and more committed than ever, the odyssey continues...

Finally, we reach our destination.  Hartley is obviously overwhelmed by the immensity of the moment.

Let's take a look-see inside...

And what is my fabulous postal bounty, you may ask?  Stinkin' bills! 

A well earned rest after a job well done...

Hartley seems a lot like a cat to me, except for the excitement at going to the mailbox part. A cat would skip that part and go straight for that cute litte "wing chair". Congratulations on the new house. You got in before school starts?

He is stinkin' adorable. I've been wondering if you survived the move, so glad you did.

Can't wait to see the well equiped Studio. g

Congratulations and enjoy your new home!

Marie-Christine said...

Yeah! Congratulations :-). Nice mailbox, even though it seems to me you may have to get out the snowshoes to get to it at least some of the year?? No matter, I'm sure we're all happy for you that it's all done. And I'm looking forward to seeing what your frustrated sewing imagination puts out of that great studio once you can sit in it comfortably..

Congratulations! It must feel so good to finally be moved in.

Lilian said...

Congratulations with your new home. I hope you, and Hartley of course, will feel completely at home very soon. Your house looks like a dream and actually I'm a bit jealous of your sewing space..
(Hartley looks like a little baby when he's taking his nap. So terribly cute)

Chris said...

Congratulations on your new home and surviving the move. Hartley looks like he's right at home.

Jali said...

Hartley has his throne, I'd say you're moved in enough!

Rose said...

"Mostly unpacked" is great. I know you'll enjoy your new home. Hartley seems to be contented in his new surroundings. These are cute pictures of an adorable dog.

fiberchick said...

Congratulations on the new house! Looking forward to the virtual tour with lots of pictures of the pup...

ReaderRita said...

Hurray! Moved In. Congratulations!
Maybe it's a "new" thang that dogs do- but every time our dog learns something new (or has to remember something learned very recently) we get a big giant Y-A-W-N like Hartley's. (whose pictures are adorable, incidentally...) Oxygen to the brain and all, I'd guess? Perhaps I should start yawning before I have to remember anything...
So, do you get to relax a bit in the new digs before you start school?

tarabu said...

Congratulations! Please share any storage epiphanies you may uncover as you continue unpacking!
