Who knew that moving was so hard?! Oh yea.. everyone knows!
We’ve been on the farm for almost a month now and still trying to settle in.. but there’s so much stuff!! Between Mitsi’s and my kitchen additions we have double and some triple of every kitchen appliance and gadget you could ever want.. although I’m sure we will still find a way to buy new gadgets.
