iPhone-o-Gram! Keys in Hand!

Our closing went just fine and by 4pm we were out of the attorneys office and headed back up to the cabin to start unloading our STUFF!!

We've unloaded all we can tonight, and are headed back to load up again. Jason will be coming up from South Carolina to join us for the long holiday weekend.

Emotionally exhausted as well as physically worn out, but so grateful and happy!!

Posts may be sparse over the next few days. I don't have cell service at the cabin and have to go about 1/2 way back down the mountain to get a signal.

Maybe being unplugged is what I need!

So glad for you twice; once for the cabin's closing, and twice for a family holiday that is totally unplugged! That front slope of "not lawn" makes me wonder if the former owners corralled horses there? But who wants to mow lawns anyway!
