A little more white.

We're moving into our new {to us} house this things are going to be a little chaotic, but we're excited to finally be moving in.

And look who's already made their move!

It's been four years since we've had the Charolais cows with us, and I love driving by the lot and seeing the white cows standing out from all of the others.

They're adjusting nicely....
although I don't know if they knew what to do with all of the rain we got last week!

Happy weekend friends!

My cup runneth over.

I have a mom and sister who planned more than I deserved.

Friends & family who packed up everything at 6:45 to {make it work} when there wasn't any power.

A college roommate who planned games and built beautiful gift baskets.

Friends who drove miles. And more miles.

Neighbors who made me a priority.

A special lady who opened her home to us.

I am a blessed person.

Thank you to all of my friends who spent Saturday with me, and to those who couldn't that sent lovely messages and thoughtful gifts.

I was over-showered, over spoiled, and I don't deserve all that I received.

But I'm thankful. For the gifts, for the gift of time spent, and most importantly;

For the amazing gift of friendship that keeps on giving.

My cup runneth over. Again and again.
