Sweet Cooler Days on our Screen Porch (and NEWS)

 Welcome back to Creative Country Mom's!
I am shaking a bit as I type this....
It is somewhat official... my husbands transfer was approved.
We just don't know when.
We are waiting for an mailed offer for him to sign with the details.
OMG---- wow, okay. we can do this right?

 I have been "staging" the house all morning...
taking some larger, clear pictures of our screen porch and inside the house.
I have a ton, but they have my logo on them.
 We are going to miss this view.
 This is a dream home, but this screen porch is simply wonderful.
The view is of two lakes, ours is about 15 acres and the one across the road about 25.
40 acres of water in all...
 My wonderful husband built this for me last summer.
He worked so hard getting it done in about six weeks.
 Kick your feet up, drink a beer and watch some football.
 I am excited, scarred, hopeful... everything at once.
I pray our home sells fast.
We will try to sell it ourselves first, then if not list it in about a month.
I am 99% sure we will move now.
The only stopper is whatever it says in that letter we are waiting for now....
OH MY-----  Thanks for all your lovely notes and support.
