This week is SUPER busy for our family. We are moving out this week!!! I am so excited to start our new adventure up north:) I keep opening drawers and closets and finding things to pack though. The list is endless-but my joy is overflowing!
That's what keeps me going I think-the sheer fact that we are starting a new chapter in life. I ran around taking pictures tonight. StarWars has been a big help to me. When all my older kids are busy with goodbye parties and the end of the school year activities-my little six year old is the one person home with me. We unloaded
the cold-storage room together...carrying each item upstairs. We took tons to D.I. and we filled up a whole super long dumpster. It felt fabulous getting rid of years of useless items that I never use anyway.
I'm learning from the T.V. show-"Hoarders", that I hold on to items for the feel-good memories. I also think that my secret wish is to pass-on the treasures, but some people won't find them to be special like I do. I need to ask my kids if they dream of owning my possessions. I've learned so much from working at home
decor stores also. (That sounds funny-after putting pictures up:) Some items are seasonal and some are temporary. I need to hold off on unnecessary things-even when I WANT them so bad! (Think of all the money I'll be saving!) I want to make the move north to be uncomplicated and easy for my husband and sons
to move. The more I let go of-the quicker we will be out of here. My son, Casanova and his wife, have inherited my kitchen dining room set, the basement couches and a big bookcase that my father in-law made years ago. My eldest son gets the other matching bookcase. It felt so good to help them out as they moved into a new place also. I'm so grateful for the home that we've built with our own hands- and the items that have been handed down to me from my parents. (I need to write about how I inherited my formal dining room set from my grandma. But, I'll hold off on that till later:)
*In the midst of this craziness-I managed to make a silk wedding bouquet for my friend, Megan. I just love her style and wedding colors. Congrats to the new bride-♥
