Oh my goodness, y’all. This little blog has been super quiet the past month for two reasons. We are expecting our ninth child and we are moving!
The decision to move was not an easy one, especially since I have been so laser focused about paying off our mortgage. I really wanted to see what we started come to fruition. I wanted to see this house paid off! But when I became pregnant I knew that moving back home really was more important than anything else. I fought my crazy feelings for awhile, but my husband, being so kind and wonderful, did what he could to find a job back in Georgia. Everything has fallen into place very quickly!
We moved to South Carolina to help boost our finances with a higher paying job and a downgrade in house. I am super pleased with our progress.
I’m not 100% sure what our future holds financially, but I’m trusting in God to lead us along. We are closing on a mountain cabin this week which has always been a dream of mine. This is house downgrade number two for us. Once we are in the cabin our house in South Carolina is going on the market.
Our options are as follows…we could either take the equity from our home once it sells and almost pay the cabin off, or, we could put a chunk on the cabin, recast the mortgage and turn it into a rental while putting another chunk down on a slightly bigger more permanent home. We will know once we get in there, i.e. how it feels and if we fit, and believe me there is almost nothing I would like more than a paid off mortgage!
I hope to share updates here on a more regular basis soon. For now, please follow along with me on Instagram. This week is full of packing, purging, and painting. We pick up our Uhaul truck tomorrow!
