On Making a New Home

Life has been a different story lately. New neighbors, new light, a new beat, a kitchen window. Paying closer attention to things that were missed before, priorities rearranged, lifey-er, peaceful-er, free-er, relax-ier despite growing bills, tension in the city, a softer energy harder to report or take a picture of but not much of a reason to do either.

We are self-contained but not alone, happy because we are grateful and growing easier, difficulties be damned.

We have work to do and sleep to sleep and love to love and ideas to think and that's about it.

Wishing you every happiness in your new home -- it looks home-y already.
Hope to see you when you are settled.

"Love to love . . ." Perfect.

Happy Autumn! A great time for new beginnings.

I love your new crib. Maybe it's the Wisteria Snow - I don't know.

I love these little peeks :)
I'm glad things are settling and getting cozier.
I hate moving, it throws me off what little game I have, ha!
This post makes me want to take a nap...I mean that in the best of ways.

excellent. im loving the new home. and it's inspiring me to re-create our home. we're not moving anytime soon, though we talk about it every week. i think what we need is a complete overhaul of what we have. and then some love to love.

the overhaul is pretty good Moll. the shedding takes some pounds off and some luggage away. our idea was to "pack like we're moving to Africa". we didn't exactly do that but we're making some room for some new memories and that.
