parents new years visit!
this was maybe the best and most helpful visit from my parents ever –– they packed their car TO THE LITERAL BRIM with all of our belongings that we hadn’t yet moved from our wedding, and came to help us settle into our new house! let’s be honest, we needed all the help we could get. we were shocked that so many things needed fixing. from contacting electricians like https://saltle.com/electrician-texas-service-areas/bee-caves-electrical-services/ to come and fix our wiring, to hiring a plumber so we had hot water, it was an endless list of things to do. so thank goodness for my parents. it was right after our christmas visit, and while we flew back with the girls, they were willing to drive out and met us the same night we arrived back. yes, they are that amazing (and crazy ha!) they even stopped in lake tahoe along the drive and skiied a day before getting to us. they are always ones to make the most of a situation! once here, they helped so so SO much. every room is currently having something done to it, minus the bathroom which is finished after we had our new glass shower doors fitted, so things are quite chaotic. but that didn’t put them off in the slightest. we still have so much to do in the house but they rolled up their sleeves and helped wherever they could: doing ikea runs, setting up furniture, unpacking, cleaning, hanging things, entertaining our girls, watching the utes bowl game, having favorite meals out, biking, running, ringing in the new year, and having so much fun like we always do with them! the girls absolutely love spending time with them, which makes me so happy. so thanks mike & linny, you are the best! perfect way to start the new year and life in our new place.
