This is a big year. A big year of changes. All good changes. All blessings. We are so blessed!
Last week, I enjoyed my home for one last week. We lived in that home….our first home purchase…for 4 years.
In my life I’ve only lived one place longer, that was 7 years (from 1st to 8th grade).
All other homes since then were NEVER more than a year…yes, I said it….ONE year.
Not only was this MY first house [n0t parents' house], but it was also a house I lived in for MUCH longer than others.
I am a nester. I was a nester before pregnancy. I am a super-nester now.
I loved that house. I will always love that house. I loved that yard. I will always love that yard.
I cried all weekend having to leave it. I’m hormonal. I wanted to bring our first baby home to that house.
I cried. I mourned. I moved on….literally and figuratively. I [we] have great memories of that house. I [we] always will.
Nothing stays the same. Things change. And, change is good. Change is inevitable. It can still be hard.
There are bigger and better things ahead for us! And, it’s just a house! Things are just things. Stuff is just stuff.
What’s most important in life? Things? No. Stuff? No.
I snapped some fun iPhone pics last week for my Project 52…. I have discovered that I can lose highlighters on my shelf.
What a handy little shelf it is. Oh so handy, until….
I drop food….and it lands on one of two shelves….shelves I didn’t have a few months ago!
A few pictures of my buddy. As a military wife, I am alone sometimes more than I’d like.
But, what a blessing it is to have such a great companion by my side. I know he will miss his yard too, for the time being.
I may be more sad for him than for me, but he is just a dog. Do dogs have memories? Will he have dreams of his old backyard?

The older you get, have you discovered that “things” are less important than they once were?
Were you a nester during pregnancy? Have you ever “lost” anything that had significant meaning to you?
