Moved

We’ve moved!
We packed and packed and packed and then moved about a mile. Which made us very happy because we love where we live. We’ve got a green acre with an ocean glimpse.
It’s exciting to move to a new (and bigger and better) house. But it is a lot of work. Your back hurts, your hands ache, your nails are a catastrophe, you are utterly exhausted. And just when you can breathe a sigh of relief that it’s finally over, then there is the un packing.

Moving certainly gives you a detailed perspective of each and e-v-e-r-y little thing you own—I have a LOT of clothes. And coats. And handbags. And, kitchen gear. And fabric. Moving house is the ultimate edit: possession poised over a box, you make the final decision: does it come or does it go? No, it doesn’t need to spark joy, it just needs to be loved and wanted.

So we’ve arrived. Our familiar things look different in a new environment. I’ve hung the art on long and lofty walls. It feels like a bit of a fresh start in a new place.

Now that sparks joy.

    Congratulations on a successful move! It is a daunting task at a certain age. When I was young and single I remember a move every year (almost). The good thing is you now know what you truly want and need in your new home.

    Enjoy the unpacking!
