It has been a happy home, filled with laughter and love. It was never meant to be our forever home. We knew one day we would be downsizing and I am ready for this move. I'm excited to start this new chapter of our journey. So, why then am I writing this with tears rolling down my face?
So many of my dreams were fulfilled in this home. I was given the opportunity to raise hens, chickens, turkeys and hogs. I had a kitchen that is every cooks dream with a professional Viking Range and a Koehler Pro Cook Center. I was blessed with exchange students from all over the world. We had room enough to host every family reunion, give refuge to family and friends in need and move my parents in when they could no longer live on their own.
I am looking forward to creating new memories in the new house and I know that they will be good memories because the house we're leaving and the house to where we are moving are just places. It is Frank and I, along with all our family and friends that make it a home.
So I am drying my tears and focusing on the excitement of moving and turning the new house into our home. I hope you will join me on that journey.
Each journey starts with baby steps. The first baby steps were the closings. We should be making the move in a few weeks. Lots to be done before then but we still have to eat so I'm sharing the Weekly Menu.
We are heading to an Aircraft Owners Conference as I write this. We will be attending a Hangar Dance and having dinner out. We drive home tomorrow afternoon and will stop for dinner en route.
Sunday is Melody's second birthday celebration so we will be eating at the party.
Monday I have meetings for church all day long, 10am, 4pm and 6:30pm. Frank is on his own.
The rest of the week is typical so I will share our dinners for those days.
