Onward and Upward....or Sideways

Well folks, it is with a heavy heart that I reveal I will be moving. As I write, boxes are being packed, cupboards cleaned out and excess items organized for one big moving sale. This is a difficult time and it wasn't something I chose, but never the less, move I must. I ordered a 'PODS' moving container and it was much smaller than I expected, so I'm a little worried. I guess it just means I have to sell more than I thought. As I look around, I realize it's just stuff, material possessions. But they are *my* possessions and some of them are difficult to part with. I am keeping whatever is irreplaceable, has sentimental value or I can't bear to part with. I think about all the hard work I put into this house over the last five years and wonder if I will have the energy to do it all again. If you haven't seen my home, you can see it here. Co-incidentally, it will be 5 years to the day that we need to be out. We bought this house June 6, 2006 and will be gone June 6, 2011. I am trying to see it as a new adventure, new opportunities to design, try a different look....Onward and Upward. I know a lot of people being uprooted and my thoughts go out to all of them as we continue....even if only sideways.

Hi Laura, Sounds like it is not your preference to move, so my heart goes out to you. I was just admiring the photos of your home. I can't believe what you've accomplished in 5 years! I wish you the very best in your new place. I hope it will be an adventure to start with a blank slate. Just don't stop blogging--we love you!

Warmly, Michelle
