In Our New Home!

Hello Dear Friends,  I've missed you!!!

It's been a couple of months since I've actually posted anything on The Cozy Little Kitchen, though there's much to share.  We've moved!  We now live in Louisville, Ky. in a beautiful, vibrant neighborhood full of historic homes with lively restaurants and shopping only a couple blocks away!  Thanks be to God, we found a cottage that's perfect for Mr. Cozy and I to make into our home!  This is our first house to buy, and I know that it's a gift from the Lord.

I have to interject, Mr. Cozy graduated from Medical School....Woowho!!!

He's going to start working at Kosair Children's Hospital July 1st, and the madness of residency will begin.  In the meantime, we've spent every day together.  It's been wonderful, especially after 4 stressful years of not much quality time at all!  We've been working on our house, painting, cleaning, painting, gardening, painting and decorating galore.  It's so much fun to pour yourself into a place that's your own.  It's so satisfying! 

I cannot share with you enough how many prayers God has answered over the past couple of months.  My hubby graduating from medical school is HUGE!  He will tell you that he couldn't have done it without the Lord to sustain Him.  Also, this house we live in is in a neighborhood that we didn't think we could afford!!  It's a miracle the previous owners dropped the price enough-- right before we were going to give up on it-- for us to have a chance at purchasing it.  God orchestrated the entire thing!  We've looked at this house for a year online, drove past it when we were in town, and prayed over it; all the while it was out of reach for us.  Like I said, right before we were going to give up on it, the price dropped pretty significantly and we were in!  We could make an offer and eventually we got it.  Thank you, Jesus!

(This picture was taken before we actually closed on the house on a very chilly, rainy day in early April.  Notice we have 2 dogwood trees in bloom!)

We knew it had work to be done since it had been vacant for almost 2 years, but the house is full of the historic character we desired and charm that you can't seem to find in newer homes.  (Did I mention it was built in 1945?)  I love that!

....(I feel like I have so much to say, but I can't do it all right now. I just have to touch base with you all!)....

I've got to go get my walk in, then start up again by helping the Hubs paint the shutters with a fresh coat of glossy black!  Have a blessed day my Friends, and I'll be back so very soon!
