Summer Update

The wedding was beautiful...even after the craziness of a move the weekend before! (More on that later... Our house sold the day it went on the market, to the first people who saw it.  That was gratifying, but it certainly did make us "pick up the pace" with the move.) I will post more wedding pictures soon...the one on the right is still a "proof"....but in the meantime I must tell you....

I have never been happier with a decision in my life! Downsizing, although a challenge, has been wonderful. We adore our new house, new neighbors and beautiful new Virginia countryside, which we now call home.

We were only able to unpack a couple of rooms before the wedding and since we knew we were heading down to the islands for some rest and relaxation afterwards, we didn't worry about it.  Once home, though, it is a bit overwhelming.  Going from 6,000 to 3200 square feet will be a challenge, but I am up for it.  And I am not rushing myself, either.

Can't wait to hear from others of you who've downsized recently! How have you liked it?


It's a process....Things from our former library have been split and have now gone into our living room and upstairs study.  Our former living room furniture is now in our "keeping room."  More on that later, too!
