dive in and swim out deep



i'll be packing boxes and making moving arrangements the next several days.  i don't have a lot of belongings so it shouldn't be terribly tough.  i'm moving from a 2 room cottage to a 4 bedroom space in a 180 year old house out on a way back road.  i already have a clear mental picture of how i want the place to look.  that's just how i operate.  it's not as if i don't have several other pressing concerns running around in my head.  and to some i know it seems a funny almost indulgent activity.  but considering how the interior space around me will be is an automatic impulse, a calming creative activity.  it's how my brain works.  it's just who i am.

My brain works the same way...I'm very affected by my surroundings. Looking forward to seeing your new space and all that you will do with it. (And I wonder if this swimsuit style will ever come back? I would totally wear that.)

it seems we are both in the same boat!
my partner and I are moving next month to a place that is twice as large as where we are just now with huge windows...which I am most excited about. I think it's the thought of a blank canvas waiting to be made 'mine' that fills me with such excitement.

happy nesting!

envisioning your new space seems a great way to begin.
i need to pretend like i'm moving to clear the space & start fresh ♥

Good luck with the move :)

I'm the same, I like to plan how I'd like my living space to be, but then along comes life - 4 kids and 6 dogs - and what I actually get is a mishmash of kindergarten and kennel!

Have fun getting your new home just right for you :)
