We are really in the final days before moving now! I can’t believe I began writing about this move 6 weeks ago (or maybe a bit more?). This has been a really bittersweet time with the prospects of the future ahead and making our dreams come true but also saying goodbye to two members of our family household that we will miss more than we can say. Both Tai and Leo were our kitties for 17 and 16yrs (respectively) and they were both Maryland kitties with us from the beginning of my husband and I’s relationship. Maybe it is fitting that we have left them here but they will always be in our hearts and their sweet spirits will live on with us forever. We are working through some health problems with our youngest kitty, Sachi but she will be coming with us and she is our Savannah kitty so she’s going back to her low country roots. Thank you everyone who has offered kind and supportive words of love in this difficult past couple weeks!
We are ready to move forward and we are buckling down to the tasks ahead for the week. We will pack the remaining items that we will not need in the next few months into boxes and have sorted out those things we will need to come with us in luggage and bins for short term use while we are in our temporary housing for a few months. Since we will be in this transitional period packing has been that much more challenging, trying to figure out what we will over a 3-4 month period!
This week our agenda includes canceling our utilities, notifying important people and companies of our address change, packing, cleaning and saying goodbyes to friends and family!
It has been a truly spectacular fall here in Maryland and I will miss the rolling hills, fall color and yes I will even miss the snow a little, but it made a sneak appearance for us last weekend as we were packing. I can say I’m truly getting excited now! This year began with a focus on finding Clarity and I’ve truly found it by allowing myself to try new things, face my fears and live more boldly. We created this change in our lives by setting our intentions to live a more fulfilling life and the challenges that have been thrown at us will make us that much stronger! These words by Mary Anne Radmacher sum up how I am living life going forward.

One week from today we will be in South Carolina, just a few minute drive from the beach! We will be unpacking all our belongings into storage and settling in to a new routine.
