What happened? Well...lots of things. My first September post alluded to changes going on in my world and then I dropped off the earth, or the web, as it were. I was actually "dis-connected"/offline. Well virtually disconnected (anyway).
We sold our house. What?? Yes. You know, we really loved that house. We really enjoyed the updates we made to the house and making it "home". It was really "us". But...it was also a house designed for a larger household. I loved every single room in the house. But really...does an empty nest need four bedrooms?
After some serious reflection we decided that we would like to live in a smaller footprint. Remember when I told you about our first house? My own words resinated with me.
This sweet house was about 1,000 square feet, which was perfect. We didn't need anything bigger. There is something to be said for a "just right size" home.There IS something to be said for "just right". Although we loved our lovely, fun, funky home it was too big. Which is, of course, not "just right".
And so, with lots of thought and care, we went about working with a truly amazing Realtor. And "just like that" we sold the house. --Well, it wasn't really "just like that" but we did have a really good selling experience. I will share more on that next time.
In the meantime, I leave you with a picture of one of my favorite rooms.
