Thoughts about Moving



Who Needs a vase when you have a tin can?

I have moved a lot in my life so it is a familiar feeling for me. There are parts I like and others...well not so much. This move has been very different though. Much like my pregnancy with October the waiting part was misery but now that it's game on, I am in my zone and getting things done. In the past our moves have been unsure, sometimes scary, usually to a completely different setting{and State}. We would end up leaving or selling a majority of our stuff, and starting all over in a new place. This time we are moving a mile away. Everything is coming with us. Not much will change. It's exciting and weird.
Ever since I started My Challenge and spent hours scavenging my house for things to use to make a chandelier I have been saving every glass jar, every tin can, and ever piece of cardboard I have. My eyes have been opened to a world of "recycling" I never saw before. I have never even been able to hold onto my furniture let alone a box full of cardboard. It is pretty awesome.
I love that I am able to ride the same decorative theme in my new place and keep it up long enough to see where I was going with it, instead of being cut off by my move. I am getting comfortable in my own shoes and starting to live a life style I love. My house is starting to feel like My Home.

I love the flowers in the can! It looks so good! I have to remember that because I basically do not own any vases ... and when I do get or buy some flowers I am always in trouble ... This looks so awesome!
