You Gotta Have Faith


We're ready! We've had our windows, carpet and dog cleaned, signed contracts, got a lock box on our door, I've cleaned, painted and polished this place to within an inch of it's life, had pictures taken and tomorrow we go live in the MLS system a day ahead of schedule.

There were times in the last 2 months that I thought this process might be the end of me but I knew this new adventure would be worth it. The cottage I loved in the Village has been sold but I have faith that this will all turn out right for us. There is a cute, livable cottage in a great location that we may rent while we wait for just the right house.

I just realized that I had told you about my plans to redo my study but never shared any pictures with you, and since my house will never be this clean again, I thought today was a good day for pictures. I will miss this room. It is 2nd only to my studio in my heart. That's probably because it's where the books live and I l-o-v-e books. That screen in the 2nd picture is a computer monitor and also an lcd tv which makes this room very flexible. Oh how I'll miss you sweet green room.

Tonight Sweet Hubby and I are headed to the Bonefish Grill to celebrate this new adventure. My to do list has been cleared out and I feel like I can get back to living my life now. That's me in denial. Please don't spoil it for me quite yet. I look forward to reconnecting with all of you now that I'll have some free time. Thanks for your encouragement during this process.
