It's sad and exciting at the same time!

It's bittersweet actually. In just about a month from now, we'll be embarking on a totally new chapter. New and different. After living here in this house for 26 years, after raising my 3 kids here, after countless remodeling and landscaping ventures, after 26 Christmases, Easters, Thanksgivings, 4th of July's and New Years...we're moving!

I'm excited. Our new house isn't too far away, unlike when we moved to California for almost a year. This move is just to a neighboring city. Actually, it's the city Paul grew up in so for him you would think this would be like going home but he has said already, that this house will always be home to him. We're trying to pack but it's REALLY hard when you have 26 years of accumulated "stuff"!
I saw a Time Capsule Video on a blog of a lady in England that she just created since they are moving too. They've been in their house for 7 years. Ah, if it were that long instead of 26!

So, I'm hoping to make a little video and post it on here. Maybe I'll ask the kids to talk about one of their favorite memories here.

Bye for now.

  1. Hi Val,
    Hope you have a wonderful move and many new adventures in your new home.. We are selling ours when we get back North and not meaning to top you we have been there 40 years, our first house. We have been clearing out a lot, but there is still much more to do. Again congrats, I think your "old home" is just lovely.
