mountains are calling by bonnie christine
i’ve been wanting to share this news for a while and the time has finally come. the mountains are calling us home and we’re moving back to north carolina!

we have absolutely loved living in california for the last year and a half and though it will be hard to leave, it will be equally exciting for us to move back home. in short, my husband had the opportunity to transfer to an office in brevard, nc- one of our favorite places on earth (and only 20 mins from asheville)! to top it off, it’s only about an hour from where all four of our parents and both of our sisters live. it’s perfect!

we’ve already found our new home and it fell into our laps similar to how the last one did. we feel incredibly blessed to have discovered a sweet mountain retreat backed up right to the pisgah national forest. it has large windows, a vaulted ceiling and plenty of room to spread our wings (you’ll start seeing bits and pieces of it soon, i’m sure!).

so we’re packing up this weekend and plan to begin our cross country journey a week from today. after 3 days of travel we’ll arrive at our new humble abode and be greeted with warm hugs from family and friends.

living in california has been a dream and something we will never forget. to be honest, it feels like we’ve been on vacation for the last 18 months! somehow though, it just never felt like home. mostly because our families aren’t here, but also because it’s just not familiar territory. i have a lot of feelings wrapped up in these two states, both of which i plan to share with you in the next few days.

until then, bonnie (photograph by me)

is it really thursday already?

is it really thursday? …already?? this week is creeping by a little quicker than i thought it would! we still have so much to do, not to mention another yardsale this weekend!  the house is looking pretty disheveled, but room by room we’re getting there.  it’s so hard to figure out what we should take and what we should leave, sell, and give away.

my biggest efforts are still going to finding a place to live in colorado! what i really want is some old apartment that’s been painted white 100 times with drafty windows and hardwood floors (ok, maybe not drafty windows).  i need a little character, and everything i’m finding looks straight out of the 1980′s (or ’70′s).  is that too  much to ask for?   so the search continues… (unless any of you know the perfect place for us?).

so on to today’s to do list!

- finish up yesterday’s to do list

- move onto packing up the living room

- grab some bulk dog food for the toastie

- pay a few random bills

- use my gift certificate for my favorite local boutique (yeah!)

what’s on your agenda for the day?
