The day has finally come. We are leaving behind this monster of a house and downsizing to a darling little single-level home. And I absolutely love it. We have learned so many lessons these past few years.
Here are a few...
Less is More
Big houses really are just more to to clean
The greatest joy in life is just being together
Stairs and babies do not mix
Steep driveways and bikes do not mix
Me and mopping acres of flooring do not mix
It is time to simplify
Time to be grateful
Time to give
Time to purge and realize we still have SO much
Time to save and be conservative in our spending
Time to teach our children these lessons
When the going gets tough, the tough get going!
The Madskaggs are one tough bunch
In the past 8 years we have moved 7 times, had 3 babies, changed careers, lost loved ones, had numerous ER visits, faced financial ruin and wondered if we could hold it all together. There are days I've wanted to run away from it all, but we stayed.
What doesn't kill us, makes us stronger
Today we are stronger and happier than ever
We are so thankful for our dear friends and family and all of their wisdom!
Big move ahead... can't wait to enjoy the new digs.
