It's been quite a month around here. I will give you the short version of the story.
The opportunity presented itself so George and I decided to do something we've been hoping to do for years: move to Ohio to be near family. So, in May we put our house on the market, expecting it would take months to sell in light of the current housing slump. I cleaned, organized, donated and sold. The man at the Goodwill knows me well now. I'll tell you, the house was never so clean! It almost made me want to stay.
Well, much to our surprise, our home sold in just 48 hours! We were, of course, thrilled and shocked at the same time. It was definitely meant to be. Then reality set in.....we have to pack everything in this house into boxes, and fast! So, that's what I've been doing in my "spare" time. I have a long way to go, but it's coming along.
It's funny, I spent my younger years planning how to get out of Ohio and see other places, other cultures, meet new kinds of people. And I did some of that. And I loved every minute of it, and wouldn't trade those years for anything. But now, all I want to do is pack up our little lives and go back to Ohio. Life is funny, isn't it? We are so excited to start this new chapter of our lives, and we feel incredibly fortunate and grateful beyond words that it has fallen into place.
We move in only a few short weeks, and I'll be wrapped in packing tape, surrounded by cardboard boxes until then. Not sure when I'll be all set up and blogging again, but I'll try and pop in soon to say hello. Enjoy the beautiful summer, my friends!
