your life is beautiful

Husband, house, hallelujah.

We’re moving into our new house today.

Well, technically, Simon is moving us into our new house and I’m stuck at work, yet to accrue enough vacation days to justify taking a day off for moving, in addition to the five days I’ll have to take to go to England for Phil and Besh’s wedding in September.

Now, our house: It. is. so. cute. We’ve decided to live in Smithfield, cause, hello, it is so much cheaper than Raleigh, and it’s got that small-town feel we love so much, while it still has lots of shopping and restaurants, and is only a 25-minute drive to Raleigh now, thanks to the brand new, state-of-the-art, Clayton bypass.

Our house is just a short walk to downtown, in an old neighborhood known to locals as South Smithfield. It’s an older house, built sometime in the first half of the 20th century. A local couple has bought it and several of the surrounding houses, completely gutted and re-wired them and turned them into goooorrrgeous little bungalows. Ours has two bedrooms, hardwood floors, and the best kitchen ever. It has a front porch just the right size for two rocking chairs, a great big oak tree out the back, and a little brick patio underneath where Simon can use his new birthday grill.

Simon’s been calling every couple of hours with moving-in updates, and I’m positively itching to leave work so I can go and push furniture around and buy groceries to stock my endless kitchen cabinet space.

Watch this space for photos: I’m planning on going crazy with the camera tonight…
