ready, set, go!

so we are all preparing for our big move back to cincinnati this weekend.  thinking proactively, i flew up with sweet lil a week ahead of time.  i wanted at least one of us to be spared the tedious sixteen hour drive up north.  

unfortunately, i had very limited time with lily this past week.  i was busy painting the new (old) house for us, including lily's new big girl room!  (see pic below)  i don't know how much i was missed though as the grandparents and various doggies and kitties were entertaining enough!  when i left lily at the airport curbside with her papa, she was covered in bruises and scratches... true signs of playing hard and having the time of her little life!  

now, as i write this from orlando, in the place where i brought a sweet little bundle home from the hospital just a little over two years ago, the house is remarkably quiet and empty feeling.  i miss that little girl something fierce.  forget the excitement of moving to a new place... freshly painted and begging to be decorated (something i am remarkably proud of doing in just a week's time)... i can't wait to see the best thing that God has given me here on earth...lily.

first flight in her own seat!
