Moving Day

Moving Day (photo credit : John Allison)

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.

    Good luck with this serious decision & I’ll be waiting again for new posts from another side of Your country, Never said before, but papercrave since I found it some four years ago givs me a lot of inspiration. Thanx for this job!

    My sister lives in a small town in PA and I love going to visit her. Having her just a 3 hour drive away is a blessing. 🙂
