Over the past six months, John and I have had the distinct pleasure of having our daughter around. Since graduating in May, Hannah has been living with us and commuting by train to her job in New York. But that will all change tomorrow.
My darling daughter is leaving the nest! As I attend the SoNo Market Place's grand opening celebration, John and Hannah will be loading up a van and heading to Manhattan. Just as I did when I was her age, she and two roommates are moving into a New York City apartment. I'm awfully proud of her — and I'm also a little sad. But I keep reminding myself that she's only a 50-minute car or train ride away.
As John and I become empty-nesters once again, I'm certain my new booth at the SoNo Market Place will be a welcome diversion.
With a 1950s aluminum tree, bowls of vintage glass ornaments, and my new dollhouse in place, my marketplace stall is all decked out for the holidays. I'm so looking forward to tomorrow's festivites!
