Reality Sets In

The sign went up on Friday for the 4th of July weekend...




Eli helped Grandpa display the flag ...



 Maya danced to the band music...



and Jack scored a popcicle at the parade.



Each holiday and event held at our house is full of nostalgia these days,
as reality sets in: our house is officially for sale.
We are attempting to sell it ourselves, and have shown it
to a few people already, with a couple of more calls today.
So in between packing things for storage, I snapped a few photos of
the flower gardens...





and spent a little time looking ahead as we choose color options,
something like these; blues and soft beiges with white trim...



Home - Creature Comforts - daily inspiration, style, diy projects + freebies



design seeds: gray


for our soon-to-be-built cottage.

God has given me the gift of letting go of the past and looking
forward to the future. I will not forget our nearly 28 years here,
and I will cherish the memories He has given us, but I look forward
to the next adventure.

Life is full of adventures, and God promises
to be with us every step of the way!
