The Winds Of Change...

Web Image
Change is inevitable, and along with it comes excitement and curiosity.
What is around the corner for us?
Handsome and I have decided that we want to plan ahead for those changes that are inevitable. With some of the wonderful changes we've chosen over the past few years - my creative endeavors and his favorite venues for making music - moving makes perfect sense.

His musical endeavors are almost entirely centered in Sarasota now, and in just the past twelve months, he has driven nearly 6,000 miles between there and home. Those miles spent driving are dangerous, tedious and time that could be spent doing something more enjoyable.

We've also discussed options to be closer to our sons and their families. We're factoring in where we might like to be to facilitate that, too.
So, the first phase of our plans involve selling our home here in North Port, along with the three acres on which it sits. 
 
While we're packing, tossing, donating and generally clearing out, we'll be exploring our north/south choices and planning for the next stage of our journey together. Whatever we do and wherever we go, we're happy and exhilarated knowing we have each other to share the trip.

How exciting, Donna! A new adventure, a new home to decorate, new friends, a new community to explore, I think it will all be such fun! ... Your corgi purse is just beautiful! xo

Exciting for you! It would be unthinkable for me! On one thing we agree. Wherever we are, new path or old, as long as our guys are by our side we are happy.

That is exciting. Your new home will include a sewing studio, won't it?

I admire your bravery on this new journey you will experience...together with love and excitement. I know I will also face this in the next few years and I hope I can face it with "grace" just as you are. Your current home is lovely and it should sell well. Weekend of Joy Dear...

YOu have a lovely home and some I hope some help to cut that three acre lawn as well!
We were discussing our future as well today and the possiblity of moving after Sophie has finished school. It is great that we have the choice to. Can you easily move that lovely sewing room that took months to put together? make sure it fits in your new home.
Have a good wekend.

That's the beauty of of quilting. We can do it from any location. I had no idea you were on so much land (aka work). Best wishes in this new adventure.

Patchworker said...

Warm wishes for finding a new property as lovely as your present home and am sure it will be a wonderful adventure for you both and the doggies!

Sharon said...

So happy for you, Donna! Can't wait to hear about your final decision.

Stitching Noni said...

Wow, what a brave decision to make.... but you know in yourselves that it is obviously the right decision to make!
Good luck with the next stage of your journey on life's path :o)

How exciting Donna, however I don't envy you the packing bit of the adventure. I look forward to seeing where you and Handsome decide to put your roots down.

Donna, when I read a recent post and realized that you were making a move, I tracked back to find this original post to see what your plans were. We, too, are in the midst of change. Actually our plans have taken a turn in the road, and the original plan to move was aborted. Change is in our future, but as yet we are unsure what that means. Like you, it doesn't much matter as long as we have each other to travel the path together. Good luck with your new adventure.
