So very sorry to have neglected you for so long! Moving is HARD, even if you’re only doing the UN-packing part and have already done the packing part. (Okay, that was mostly David.) But with help from some friends and family, we’re finally getting a few spots looking like people live here on purpose . . .
So if you don’t look at the garage or at the boxes in various closets still to be unpacked, it kind of looks like home. The strange thing is it doesn’t exactly feel like home yet, although it does a little more each day. We’ve only been in for nine days, and we’ve stayed in so many other houses and condos over the past thirteen months, some of them for a few months at a time, it feels more like that than we expected. Like we’re just settling in for the next temporary stop. Of course, I suppose in a way that’s true. We’re all temporary inhabitants of our spaces to one degree or another.
Many thanks to everyone who has stopped by with words of welcome, with flowers, with wine, with a few hours of your time. You are appreciated. So as we continue to work on settling in, here are a few thoughts for you on the subject of home . . .
Home is the nicest word there is. ∼Laura Ingalls Wilder
The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned. ∼Maya Angelou
Home is where the heart is. ∼Pliny the Elder
. . . and with all the picture hanging, etc., I couldn’t resist this one . . .
Decorate your home. It gives the illusion that your life is more interesting than it really is. ∼Charles M. Schultz
Wishing you a (decorated) home full of love, wherever you are!
