Letting go, Accomplishments, and Charleston, SC living.....

 Good Morning Friends!! I hope you're having a lovely morning....I wanted to pop in and do some sharing with you of our final trip we made this summer out of four....Yes, it was a busy one...This trip was made the Thursday before school started for Luke...So that was the end of July...If you remember, Taylor, our oldest, moved out last July after graduating with her Graphics Arts degree and moved 3 hours away to Charleston, South Carolina....Yes, it was with many mixed emotions for this momma and i went on faith that God has (and still is) a shield of protection over her as she feels her way through her path in life...I'm SO GLAD she did it! She has always wanted to live there since she was 16 years old or younger....And as i told her and reassured her daddy "Now was the time!" After you start a job and your life you can't just put life on hold to go find your dreams...So, if she was going to do it then now was the time...Well, after a year of tears, learning, growing, sometimes stumbling, along with lots of laughs and accomplishments I'M SO GLAD SHE DID IT! She has amazed me and made me pull my hair out sometimes in the same week...lol...But I'm soooooo proud of her....She went from having no job when she went (we were going on faith) to moving up in a wonderful job, has gotten a couple raises, does graphic work for them also, and also sells her own cards she designs in their stores....So looking back we survived!! Her and I both! I miss her dearly every day, but I have my own life and things going on and when we chat we are genuinely so glad to hear each others voices...

So, when their apartment lease was up they had already lined up moving into a house across the street...An 1884 downtown Charleston house...So the move was easier that it was across the street, but the rains poured and we did ALOT of waiting and didn't get to start moving til that night...And did I mention 3 flights of stairs...I'm so thankful my husband works out...lol...Needless to say we were exhausted that night on the drive back home...We arrived home at 2 am for Tim to sleep a few hours before heading to work....I pray that this isn't a yearly thing...lol

So, I wanted to share some of the pics i took as I was walking around...Taylor kept telling me leading up to the move "Momma, you're going to love this house!"

So, this is downtown Charleston, SC living.......
