Let It Go

My attachment to stuff has changed … 975 square feet, one closet, two dogs, north winds, a forest, dirt roads and ongoing construction will do that to a person.

This will be our third winter in the north woods and I can assure you that living in this much nature is best described as magical humility wrapped in gratitude and the best part hasn’t even happened yet.

It’s so nice to have things to look forward to, instead of back.

missing, still hopeful.

Progress

It looks like the studio will be winter worthy and a life with storage lockers will be over … I do believe, I do believe.

I’m pretty psyched about ridding our lives of storage lockers for the final -and I mean final – keep, sell or giveaway time.

In the meantime, I’m letting go of my decades old drive thru toys from life in the fast food lane.

It’s time for someone else to enjoy them and share with others.

 

Someday, This Could All Be Yours

My first recollection of a someday was very disappointing when my 3 year old self never turned into a dog or a horse but I still carried on and got over it.

Fast forward … after years of practice creating experiences for corporate folk, now’s my chance to plan how this looks, again, for real, no backs, no do-overs, no storage lockers, no road trips … really? … as she sat there waiting for the other shoe to drop.

Which would be fine too … size 8.5 please.
