Moving Team Arrives

“There is only one way to bridge the perceived gap between a person and his or her greatest dreams, and that is to begin.” ― Richie Norton

Today was the realization of a long year of planning our new home. Our moving team arrived early and worked consistently to unload box after box and each piece of furniture into my new home. It was a day to say my dream came true.

I did not have one minute to sit down and rest or write. It was a never-ending flow of my name being called out or the phone ringing. So now in the last few minutes of the day, I sit thinking of all that happened today. While it was a hectic day, I feel grateful for a time to rest and think about the beginning of a new life in Virginia.

Tomorrow I hope to send off photos of a house filled with boxes, laugh about not being able to find the salt or pepper shakers, and many more thoughts on moving. Again I say, "There is no rest for the weary". 

Tomorrow is another day to begin anew and put away a few more boxes. Stay tuned.

  1. It will be great once it's all over and you're more organised and have time to reflect!

  2. I’m so happy your things have arrived and hope each box is in tip-top shape as you unpack them.

  3. Yay, for things arriving! Lots of work ahead but at least you don't have a tight timeline like with packing. Make sure to take as many breaks as you need.

  4. Such a big adventure!!! Congratulations! And here's to finding the salt and pepper shakers! Or at least buying disposable ones at the grocery store!

  5. Carol, it is over. Now you can breathe. Now comes the fun of unpacking. Just remember, if you can't find something just go out and buy a new one. I guarantee it will turn up the next day.
