We Found a House!

Jon and I found a house we liked when we moved him down there. We made an offer on it and eventually came to an acceptable contract with the seller. Assuming things go according to plan, Jon should be moving into the home on June 1. The kids and I will follow a week later.

The house is in Flower Mound, TX just 10 minutes from my brother Stephen's home. I am thrilled to have found a place so close to him that feels like it will work for us. Now comes the dreaded packing. I officially started today.

I got through 2 book shelves of books. That took 12 boxes. I am going to need a lot of boxes.

I had a very productive day including a trip to the gym ... to work out. I have been going to the gym fairly regularly these last 4 months but it has always been to study while the boys played in their play place. This was the first time in a long time I went with the sole purpose of actually working out. It was great.

I feel good tonight. Watching General Conference helped. It always does. I feel full of hope and promise. There are tears ahead but there is also joy and discovery as well. Just because we can't see it yet, doesn't mean it isn't there.

I lived in Texas for 15 years and lived in Flower Mound too. Loved it there and still miss it. The members are great. I enjoy your blog and feel I have a lot in common with you. Now even more. lol

Flower Mound is awesome and would have been my first pick in the North Dallas area. Congrats!

We just moved from Flower Mound to Seattle. How I miss the people and atmosphere in TX! You will love it, the people are wonderful and friendly. It is a wonderful place to raise a family, I'd move back in a heartbeat!

Congrats on finding a home in Flower Mound. It is a wonderful part of Dallas with so many good people in the wards. My parents lived in Coppell for 7 years (I believe that's where your brother lives -- i know him) and i currently live in Dallas with my family.

Flower Mound is super close to where I live now! My family just moved here from Michigan a year ago. So far we love it here :)
