Sad to sell our first home, that I love more than I thought I could in a city we've fallen in love with.
Tired after so much work, and we still are not quite done.
Grateful for all of the friends who have helped watch Creed so we could get things done.
Hopeful that the selling process will go well.
Nervous that we won't be able to find a place to rent that we can afford in Salt Lake.
Reluctant to move onto the next stage in our life when we're so very happy with life right now.
We've been so busy getting the house ready that we haven't had much time to focus on anything else. We're busy doing things that we really should have done when we moved in three years ago. We've never put any effort into our bedroom so you don't walk in and think, "Wow, what a master suite." We've cleaned up, taken the TV out, added new curtains, and finally put up some pictures. I want our engagement pictures to go in these frames, but since we're keeping personal photos to a minimum, I had to come up with something temporary to go in them and I didn't have a lot of time so this is what I came up with.
They are actually 8 x 10's in large frames, but they look small in this photo above our king size bed. I just put concentric circles in turquoise and brown and added some of our favorite words at the bottom of each one. We picked Thrive, Shine, Play, and Be. Which words would you choose?
It reminds me of one of Ali Edwards projects with the words she picks to focus on each year (and speaking of Ali Edwards, the other day Larry asked me all excited, "Steph, did you see that ALI EDWARDS commented on your blog?" I actually thought it was my friend Ali, but he had clicked on the link to Ali Edwards blog and I think that it's cute that he noticed and that he even knows who Ali Edwards is!) Basically we're just trying to make things look as inviting as possible. Hopefully someone will want to move right in!
