hello again, patient friends. the move is over. awful as it was, and it was (less the amazing support and help of my family and friends), now is that very special time when i get to put my little touches on my new home. i haven't totally unpacked. boxes linger here and there. waiting to be opened like presents that you have a hint about. most things arrived safely, but whatever broke, well that just makes for more space which i must say i can always use!
before i packed i purged so many of my things in an effort to only showcase and use the things i own that i love. this has made the process so much more enjoyable. starting over is amazing. it feels like i needed it.
i left some plants behind that i really loved. wished them a happy life and thanked them for the learning experience. i totally cried saying goodbye to my garden. i know. i am plant sappy.
although i left quite a few green beauties behind, many pots and some moments of plant tear outs made their way over. these were of course the first things to come out of the boxes and placed in suitable spots. looking out into my new garden, seeing all my plants sitting pretty, well that was really a proud moment. i felt as if i have arrived. i felt like it was now home.
planters still need to be filled, weird fence situations to be solved, chicken coop needs to be assembled, raised bed needs to be postioned and planted... its all a work in progress that i look forward to sharing.
my homes interior is also still unresolved, but getting there. the bohemian in me can't help but dangle and display things like ferns, macrame and folk art in every crevice. i am trying to take my time with it. enjoy the process. but sometimes your creative juices get the best of you and result in pressure.
forutnatly i have my pets to tend to and slow me down. hannah the pup is totally in love with her yard. the chickens have a nice run right outside my door way that they dig, the cats have had a slightly more difficult time adjusting, but a small herman miller table that my grandmother gave me has served nicely as a window bed look out.
all in all things are falling into place.
here are a couple images of my little family and such along the way... new home / garden photos and inspirations to come soon! i get internet tomorrow! yipee!
