Yes. I shed a few tears.:(
Some things I have learned on this journey.
1. You must be ruthless in your editing of possessions!
Do you need 3 soup pots? The George Foreman grill? Really? How many collectibles is too many? Remember only what you absolutely LOVE can make the cut.
2. You'll always have your memories. What you don't have is space!
That's why this piano
and this chinoiserie china cabinet(behind the column)
and this rice bed
did not make the move with us. They are much too large and formal for our new home.
3. Keep only what you must! This pine hutch and table go where I go.
Not only are they sentimental favorites they will fit in with our new casual home and lifestyle.
4. Embrace change!
Easier said than done. We carefully planned this move and are in the process of building our new "old" forever home but this has been an emotional roller coaster. So many "Remember When's". You must learn to let go of stuff while you hold firmly on to your priceless memories and cherished friends and family.
This is an exciting time of life , full of adventure and new beginnings. I am excitedly looking forward to what lies ahead!
