After many grueling months, and so much help from friends and family, we are finally in our new home!
In the past month my husband finished his masters degree program (summa cum laude at that!), we've sold a home, lived with family for a week before we bought our new home. We moved, settled in a bit and then spent two weeks cleaning, unpacking, a little bit of painting and celebrated with our annual light filled Sing For Your Supper party mixed with a housewarming. Our new house is much better suited for this type of gathering that we love so much. We are already looking forward to next year.
The past two weeks have been unseasonably warm and perfect for opening up the doors to let girls and beasts wander in an out while putting a little color on the walls. Each brush stroke makes this place ever more our own and one step closer to living this new, more authentic life.
I find the knot in my stomach slowly unwinding with each passing day and I am so relieved to be home. Now that we are here, we have a little cleanup to do and then can move forward in new directions.
For myself, I'm contemplating going back to school (yet again) to finish my bachelors degree, two different types and kinds of Waldorf Teacher training, am aching to paint something in addition to walls, and have a couple potential art shows coming up at local businesses.
Stay tuned for more!
