This week we are in the process of moving.
Tuesday night, yesterday, and today I have been packing away bits of my life into boxes. Albums, plates, recipe books, things that represent me and Brian. Photos from when we first became friends, notes that he had sent me when we were long-distance dating. Two copies of many books, because we would both read the same book and talk about it together over the phone when we couldn't see each other.
Humans are funny. We need a lot to feel fulfilled. Animals move burrows, nests, homes all the time, and they do it all without a u-haul. I like that I have things that are important to me. A lot of people say "Simplify Your Life!" "Get Rid of all that Extra Stuff!". While I am not a packrat in a messy way, I do have things that I keep because they are important to me. And I like it that I have things that are special to me.
On a completely different note, my lovely aunt that I only just mentioned in my last post sent me a package that arrived yesterday. It was a box of chocolate! Two pounds of it! The only thing better than chocolate is UNEXPECTED chocolate! Aren't you jealous that I have an Aunt that sends me chocolate surprise gifts?
(PS - I am now a columnist for The Handmade News. It would mean a lot to me if you would stop by my first article and leave me some feedback in the comments there!)
Have a Lovely Weekend.
