I'm going to miss this

So a LOT has been going on in our lives here the past month or so. I won't bore you with all the details, but the bottom line is I'm getting a divorce and will be selling the house. I'm definitely going to miss my new porch and my new shutters and my new roof. But those will also be great selling features once we can list the house. We've lived here for over 15 years, the kids grew up here (it's the only home they remember living in). But at the same time, Emily and I are ready for a new start. So while it's definitely the end of one long chapter in my life, it's also the beginning of a brand new one. And I'm excited about that. :0)

  30. Sometimes life throws us a curve and sometimes we have to make the hard decision as to what is right for us. Please know that I think of you often as my first blogger friend. I also have not sewn but one small quilt in two years. Hubby still very ill with myleodysplasia. Wish you and Emily the best for the future. Found your blog today just by chance as I hadn't checked in a long time. Hugs my friend.

  31. I guess it must be a bittersweet feeling, the thought of getting to start a new chapter in your life and at the same time saying goodbye to the old one.

    I hope the fresh new year will bring wonderful things into your life! <3

    Good luck with the house sale and hunting!
