Making Room for the New

Red Dress Gala 2009 – 23 Weeks Pregnant
We have been busy making room for the “new”. Tonight we shredded 4 trash bags full of old documents that we have accumulated since we were both in college, our early marriage in our apartment, our home in Byhalia and from our most recent life here. All these things were housed in what is now Henry’s closet and we decided it was time to do the dreaded deed. I am actually surprised our little home shredder did not burn up from the 3 hours of me constantly feeding it paper. Randall and I realized we hold on to too much. He had all his report cards from each semester in college ….I mean, come on!
Randall made a good statement while we sifted through all the mess of papers, “Well, we are cleaning out our old life to make room for our new life with Henry.” It sort of made all those papers bittersweet. I realized how blessed we are as I skimmed over all the history of documents that we have hoarded for the past ten plus years. God is good all the time.
Everyday lends itself to new projects, excitement and stress as we prepare for our little guy, but we count it all as joy and look forward to the day we get to kiss his sweet little face. Randall thinks I will kiss him too much…he could be right!

Celebrating and decorating with purpose is my favorite thing to do. When I am not filling a tree with ornaments or throwing a birthday party for my golden doodle, I am being mom to a super cool tween son, the wife to a fine blue eyed man and selling real estate. I call northeast Arkansas home and when I am not loving on my people or celebrating in our space, I am using words to express myself here or on my podcast. Be sure to follow me! I am the co-author of a blog called Life with My Sister and have a podcast called Abby As-Is. You can also follow me on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and YouTube.
