Life at our New "Home"

Through the extreme generosity of friends of friends, Andrew and I are staying in a beach house while we're in Charleston.  We've quickly realized that we're very spoiled living here in paradise, and I'm afraid we might not want to go back home when the time finally comes!  The house is just perfect and gives us a great sense of peace during these uncertain times.  The house is full of bright colors and it has plenty of room for our families when they're visiting.  Not to mention the screen porch, pool, and view of the ocean :)  While we wait for Adeline to come, we're definitely enjoying our new home and plenty of walks on the beach while pretending that we're "just on vacation."  We'll never be able to fully express our gratitude to the owners of this wonderful house - it's just another example of what people will do when they know of someone in need.  I continue to be absolutely amazed by the outpouring of love from people.  I definitely look forward to being able to share this experience with others in similar situations down the road.  All I can say is that as scary as everything is, God has definitely provided for us and I know that He will continue to do so.

I'll leave you with a few pictures of our new home...

Supposedly he's working and on a conference call, but I'm not so sure - definitely less stress in the "office" here!

Beautiful rainbow over the beach that we saw before going to dinner at our friends' house last night

I hope everyone has a great weekend!  My parents will be here soon, and my mom's looking forward to a weekend on the beach and seafood so hopefully Adeline won't come quite yet!


  1. So glad you started this blog so we can stay posted on y'all's adventures!!!

  2. Christin, these are wonderful pictures! I am so happy you and Andrew are having some time together in such a beautiful place before sweet Adeline arrives. I've really been thinking of you, and am sending you positive thoughts, love and a sense of peace. You are going to be a wonderful Mama!!

  3. Christin and Andrew,
    What a nice spot to relax! As you approach the unknown, we pray that God will give you His peace and His hope. He is right there with you, and he knows everything. Glad you are seeing evidence of that in all these blessings you have mentioned.
