this makes me sad...


Phil is taking down our playset this afternoon. It makes me so sad. The other night I sorted through a few drawers in the kitchen and noticed I had several sippy cups which we haven't used in over 2 years. I didn't even know they were in there. As I sorted through the drawer, I got all choked up. I'm not just leaving behind friends and a city that I love. It feels like I'm leaving behind something greater--part of my kids' childhood--and it hurts. They were all so small when we moved up here 4 years ago. We had diapers, bottles, sippy cups, high chairs, car seats and training wheels. None of these are coming with us next week.

tears for you, dear friend...this is such a bittersweet season for you...I can only imagine the ache + grieving process in having to say goodbye to the home you've spent the past sweet baby years in...love you and want you to know that I am praying for you...xo

I am so crazy insanely busy I rarely look at blogs anymore, but I thought I should check in on you and I'm glad I did... I wish I had your email address!

I have been in your shoes (more than once with the house stuff), this spring doing it as a single mom. My thoughts are with you. It's been a while since you posted this... I hope things worked out for you! I'd love an update.

(((hugs)))
