home sweet home

I have been away too long. We have been searching for a new home and the journey to find this place has taken our time and energy, but boy is it worth it…because now I believe this place will give that energy back ten fold. It feels like it will be a very peaceful place to be and call our home.

We are still in the middle of things, wish us luck that everything falls into place, this little peace of land has already got a hold of our heart strings. We will be busy packing, cleaning, sorting for the next month and if all goes well, we will be in our new home the first part of July.

I have been sewing a little on the side to help myself feel calm during these transitions. Here is an example. This little bag was a Mother’s day gift to my mom.

I hope that you are well, and your homes are giving you joy and peace.

    oh, laney, i am so excited for you. i have been offline for months due to our recent, unplanned move. it takes a while, but you’re absolutely right: when the right place finds you, it also refreshes, rejuvenates, restores you. this looks gorgeously peaceful. keep us posted, and take care of yourself during the transition.
