Random Things Happening Behind the Scenes at Bricks ‘n Blooms
What a week it was!
As quickly as the sale of my home fell apart last week, it came back together again a few days later.
So I’ve been super busy packing all week and we are scheduled to close midweek on both houses!
It’s like Ferris Bueller once said…life moves pretty fast!!!
He was not kidding!
Anyway, we are thrilled that everything is working out and will fill you in on the new home soon.
I’m happy for the buyer of our home – I know they will really love our neighborhood.
Love all of our neighbors and we will really miss them!
And I’m equally happy to start the next chapter in our new home with lots of new gardens!
I will take lots of pictures next week and maybe even vlog it for YouTube just so you can see it in real-time.
To add to the crazy this week, both my older girls are coming home from college.
And just in time for the move too!!!
We were planning to head to Vermont for the weekend, but with the move, we are holding off until we are settled in.
