Tomorrow is a big day. After years of researching and planning and saving and coveting real estate from afar, my husband and I are leaving Boston, our home for the past 13 years, and returning to the wilds of western Pennsylvania. The past few months have been a roller coaster of excitement, apprehension, anticipation, fear, anxiety, and about a thousand other emotions but, no matter how many ups and downs there have been, I cannot express just how much I’m looking forward to this move.
Living in the city has been an amazing experience, one that I wouldn’t trade for the world, but in our hearts we know that we belong in the country and cannot wait to get back a place where we can take long walks in the woods, stargaze, plant a garden, and have lots of kitty cats … and maybe a couple of chickens, too!
I hope that you’ll understand if my posts are a bit sporadic over the next few weeks, as we get settled into our temporary home and dive in to the house hunting process. But I do have plenty of paper cravings scheduled for the coming week, at least, so please stay tuned and I’ll see you back here live on the flipside.
