Saying goodbye...

Posted by Strlady at 11:24 AM
I have been a bit remiss in my blogging this spring but it had to do with a big change that was taking place in my life.


I put my house on the market last month. After just two days it sold and I have been running around since then.

It was a very difficult decision to sell my home. It was the house that tempted me enough to pick up my bags and move half way across country to Texas. Besides the gorgeous weather, I fell in love with that bay window.


We had the house built from scratch with just a few changes here and there from the model home.


Six months later, she was ours.
 

And we proceeded to fill it with lots of memories...


and love...

Last fall my sister, who shared the house with me, decided to move out on her own and the house became a bit big for me. I also found that it was farther out of the way than I wanted to be when I went to any social activity. In other words the house no longer met my needs. It was time for a change.

After a lot of soul searching, I decided to sell the house.


Decluttering was not too bad...



But packing it all up...


was not just physically draining, but very emotional.


Everything is living in storage for the next month. 


I have found my next home but won't be closing until mid June. Then the unpacking begins. It will be a new place, a new adventure and as my daughter keeps telling me, a new place to fill with memories.

I'll be back to blogging soon.
