Happy New Year, dear friends!
Today marks a brand new beginning for me. I am finally, permanently moving into my new place after an 8 month process – 5 months to close and 3 months to remodel the bathroom. I am approaching the day with so many feelings – excitement, joy and the thrill of owning my own place for the first time but also a profound weariness from the lengthiness of the process and a fear of being completely by myself. I know that time will smooth out some of these feelings and bring me a happiness that I’ve long sought in my life. And a joyous return to my artwork!
Verizon has assured me that my high speed internet service is turned on but I haven’t been able to test it yet. I am hoping that all connections will go smoothly and I will be back tomorrow morning to share a cup of tea with you.
“…to make an end is to make a beginning.”
How exciting! A New Year and a New Life! Brava!
Congratulations! What beautiful floors! I’m jealous of all of that new-house open space – I *vaguely* remember my house being like that (you know, before we filled it with two kids and a handful of home businesses, LOL!)
Enjoy your new beginning!
Karen….it’s beautiful… I can’t wait to see the rest. Happy New Year, indeed.
Happy New Year to you, Karen! May your year be as beautiful as your new home.
Your new place is filled with wonderful light. Best wishes for many years of happiness and creativity there.
Thank you, dear friends! It’s positively glorious to be all moved in finally!
It is beautiful, Karen. I am looking forward to sharing a cup of tea with you soon. a joyous, prosperous New Year to you!
