Thank You

Your sentiments, well wishes and kindness have been so incredibly heartwarming. As we embark on our new journey, it is a great comfort to leave a place that was well loved and appreciated by people beyond our own family and friends. 

Looking through the photographs, I am reminded of how much of ourselves that we put into restoring this property. Every blooming flower, every picket on our fence, and every wall on our house has been touched by our dreams for a home to embrace us. But more than that, this house will always be the beginning of our family and for that alone it will always hold a special place in our hearts. 

The like-minded souls that I’ve connected with through the blog have been such a wonderful source of support and inspiration. I originally started the blog for therapeutic reasons, to force myself to focus on the positive in life. But in the end, aside from the motivation and reinforcement it has provided to keep an eye on the beautiful and the detail, it has pushed me to acknowledge my deepest interests, and has resulted in a collection of images that I would not have committed the time to capture otherwise. And for that, and more importantly for all of the positivity that your friendship has provided, I am extraordinarily grateful. 

Many of you have asked whether I’ll continue to write the blog. Honestly, I wasn’t sure if I would or not. But now, I can’t imagine finding a new home, fidgeting with it to make it our own, and not sharing the experience with all of you. Your extension of support, inspiration and love of all things home is a comforting and generous companion along the way. 

As you can imagine, recently we have been finishing lots of details and small projects that we never quite got to. So I have a number of posts to come soon.

With a full heart, I thank you again for your friendship and the unending kindness you’ve shown me, my family and our home.
