It was supposed to be a little break…


and it turned out to be a whole lot longer.

There’s a lot to say and a lot that has happened, but the most important thing is that I am sorry for abandoning all of you and this little blog. I have a lot of excuses…

My computer basically bit the dust.
I couldn’t keep up with life and this blog world at the same time.
Things changed.
Life moved on.
Blah, blah, blah…
Oh and I sold the house and moved to a different city.

Yep, I did.
A year ago I decided to change my whole life and make things easier. I’m 52 now after all and I needed something smaller, easier to take care of and with a flatter piece of property. Besides, I had lived in and loved that house for 10 years, which is the longest I had lived anywhere in my life and about 2 years ago I started to feel suffocated, like the walls were closing in, so I put the house on the market after a year of thinking about it. It sold right away to a lady that loves it as much as I did, thank goodness!
It wasn’t an easy decision, but a necessary one for me.

I needed a fresh start and I got one. 

Other things happened, but I won’t get into all of that, because I feel that moving is the main reason I didn’t come back for so long. I mean, what is this blog about other than the house and my life? 

That’s the other issue. 
I feel like I was sharing too much. It’s kind of a strange thing to share your life in a public forum when in reality, you’re a pretty private person. My own family doesn’t know as much about the thoughts in my head as much as all of you do lol I do miss writing though, so I need to figure out a way to do that without saying too much. Not easy apparently 😉

I also miss taking photos. I’ve never been very good at it, but it’s something I like to do. I even started posting on instagram a short time ago, but it’s kind of a strange place. The jury is still out on whether I like it or not. It’s much easier to post there. Two minutes instead of two hours to write a post definitely has its benefits! 

So that’s about the gist of it.

I’m not sure what to do with this blog now, aside from just leaving it here as a testament of old house love. We’ll see…

I’m not even sure if anyone will read this, but I felt the need to write it.

Anyway, I do think about you often and I hope all of you are doing well. 

Happy New Year!

Much love,
