Desperate Times…

I’ll admit it was a bit of a panic move, to camp out at a local resort for the weekend but I didn’t know how else to answer the girls’ “so what are we going to do for our birthdays?” question. I was too preoccupied with having a melt-down about still not having found a house, but at least, this meant I could hyperventilate in air-conditioned comfort and style.

Then our incredible chef friends (plural) showed up with three birthday cakes so we had no choice but to invite friends to come over and eat cake with us in air-conditioned comfort and style. Plus, they brought wine, so it was a total no-brainer.

And then a friend in Greenville (/guy I barely know from Facebook) offered his assistance with house hunting so while the rest of our hotel room erupted into the happy birthday song, we did this….

Not sure how we got so lucky to be surrounded by all these smart, kind and generous people but I am beyond grateful.

And while I don’t yet have a house (nor those jetpacks we were promised), house hunting in the 21st century is pretty incredible!
