A change of a dress

We are moving.  It has been in the works for some time.  It was two summers ago in fact that we decided this big, old,  rambling house was just too much for us.  We worked hard turning it into something that someone else would love and someone has finally fallen. Head over heels, thank goodness, for my house with the nooks and crannies and the big old maple tree.

We are trading suburbia for the city.

A two car garage for a parking pad.

A wide house for a skinny one.

And a big back yard for a park across the street.

It is exciting and terrifying at the same time. Kind of like the birthday party I'm throwing today for Court and a bunch of his 6 year old friends.  I'm doing it out of love but I really have no idea what to expect.

Wish me luck...



  2. I can't believe WE are moving :-)

    I wish I could have visited before the move!

    now for the BIG SIGH.....
    new journey
    saying good bye
    starting a new

    no need to remind you that I have all too recently "been there, done that".

    in fact, I still feel in many ways that I am STILL in the midst of change

    prayers for your family as you put on a new dress, and make your mark in a new town...or in your case, a new city

    you are one of the most elegant, graceful and warm people I have ever "not met"...I just know you will be just fine


  3. It is a big descion to move, in particular when you have a young family. Congratulations on making a descion that is appropriate for this time in your life. Home is where the heart is. Love and Life will be wherever you are!

    All the best to you and your family,
