I’ve got some big new to share. As most of you know, life sometimes takes crazy twists and turns. If you had asked me last year at this time, I’d have told you we would be in our current house forever. But plans change. Life changes. And just last week we closed on a brand new home nestled in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina. It’s a great location which just so happens to cut my drive to the kids’ school from almost an hour to four beautifully short minutes (can you see me doing the happy dance?). It has a yard that is perfect for the play dates and parties. It has room for friends and fun and family get togethers. It’s the kind of place where I know laughter will happen and memories will be made. I’ll be honest…it’s my dream home and I’m pinching myself that I actually get to call in mine.
Buying it was one of those big moments that just felt too good to be true. A moment where time needed to stop and worries needed to fade away because it was a moment that just had to be enjoyed. So the question became, how do you celebrate something so big in a way that is totally memorable? And the answer for us was with EDWARDS® Pies.
You see, this amazingly sweet moment in my life is one that I want to remember forever. It’s a time that I hope I will look back on in the years to come and say “Remember when we bought our forever home?” And while the rooms are still empty, there was reason to celebrate this sweet moment of life and celebrate it we did!
On our way from closing, with the excitement of shiny new keys in our hands, we stopped by Walmart. I left the hubby in the car and sprinted inside, heading straight to the frozen foods section because I had something very specific in mind. While I knew we would celebrate with out kids soon, this was our moment. Our one time to walk into our new home and just have it be the two of us. And we needed something to make it memorable. I knew Edwards Pies were just the thing because, let’s face it, when I look back at this moment many years from now, eating rich, delicious pie in the middle of my empty home on the day of closing is going to be something truly special!
After grabbing both the EDWARDS® New York Style Cheesecake and EDWARDS® HERSHEY’S® Chocolate Crème Pie from the freezer aisle, I headed back out to the car. I’ll admit I had thought a little in advance and had brought some plates and silverware with me. Armed with everything I needed to truly celebrate this life changing milestone, we drove the rest of the way to our new home and parked in the garage for the very first time.
As the hubs walked through the house and turned on all the lights to welcome us to our new home, I headed to the grill area to serve my very first dessert in my perfectly new home.
I quickly opened the Edwards Pies and set them on the counter. Then I added our plates and silverware and called my husband to come and see how we were going to make a moment that didn’t feel like it could get much sweeter even more amazing.
As we added a slice of pie to each of our plates and sat down in the empty house, I knew this was a moment we would never forget. I knew that for years to come, every time we tasted an Edwards Pie we’d remember this very first afternoon in our home when life was perfect beyond words. And we’d be able to know that no matter what life brings, sweet moments like this one will never be forgotten.
I have to say, our first visit to our new home was amazing. It was perfect. And with the help of Edwards Pies we were able to create a memory that will come to mind every time we walk through the front door.
I know in the craziness of the coming months as we move and get settled in, there will be times when we wonder if all the stress of moving is too much. But then as we walk into that one room, the furniture will disappear, the craziness will fade and we’ll remember how sweet it was to celebrate such a special moment in such a memorable way.
Whatever life moments you’re celebrating right now, make them sweeter by adding Edwards Pies. After all, time goes by so quickly and life changes in an instant. So don’t miss the chance to make sweet memories today that will you treasure tomorrow and for years to come!
