A month ago

Since I last posted. I think that's the longest I've gone since starting this blog.

September was so hectic, exciting, exhausting, stressful, exhilirating. I'm hoping for a calmer October. I doubt it.

Our annivesary, Helena's birhday, ears pierced for our big 5 year old (I wished we'd waited, she's THRILLED with them!). We're moving. Found our little house, should be closing in 2 weeks, moving in 3. Time to pack, sort, clean, disassemble, reassemble. I find myself dreaming of dreary winter days indoors, books, craft projects, staying HOME. I hope the new house will feel like home quickly. I'm ready to settle in.

We will be the second owners of this home, built in 1949 on land that was a wedding gift. It's a smallish (1400sq ft), simple, sweet, home. It feels odd, yet oddly comfortable. I think with a few things to make it us, I will really love it. A family started there, lived theirs lives, children moved on, and ultimately a parent died in this home. It carries the history of generation. I wonder what it will hold for us.

I'm very sensitive to the energy of spaces, more so since practicing Feng Shui. This home feels so solid, grounded. I think it's what I need right now.

I'll post some photos soon. I had the opportunity to walk through again with our agent, take measurements, get ready to do a Feng Shui layout. The floorplan is quite different from any home I've lived in before. I'm still trying to imagine how we'll use the space's exciting!
