My ranch in the city…

Welcome home. We are slowly but surely getting settled in our new home in the heart of ATL. “Slowly but surely” because unpacking with 3 little people seems to be next to impossible. I’ve freed myself from my self proposed deadlines and I’m just taking it a day at a time. If I get one or two boxes unpacked I consider it a successful day.

I still can’t believe I live in the city. It’s a far cry from my sweet home in Athens, but I think I’m really going to like it here. It just feels right, and that brings a lot of peace in the chaos. Our house is a little 1950’s brick ranch house (hence the title of the post, “my ranch in the city”. Get it? I just might make that my new blog name!) that has been updated by previous owners so while it may be small it has tons of potential. What I LOVE is the back patio and yard where the kids can play their hearts out. The fact that we even have a yard and trees is such a blessing…and just might be the one thing that keeps me sane living in the Land of Traffic. The neighborhood is awesome, too! Many of our neighbors have young kids and have been so friendly as we have moved in this week. So many answers to prayers already.

So, that’s just a little glimpse into our world. Here are some pictures…

Welcome Home!! Arriving at the new house for the first time...

Life goes on...around lots of half emptied boxes

 

Enjoying the spring day on the back patio...

  3. Hi Vogeltanz Family,
    Looks like you guys have had a lot of change recently! Congrats on your move and new babe. We would love to reconnect. I think my past emails may not be getting through. Stella wants to chat with her sista from anotha motha, Evyn.
