As you may know, we put our house on the market at the end of April. With Hannah living in NYC and Jacob half way through college, John and I felt that it's the right time for us to downsize and simplify our lives. Over the past four months, we were pleased that our home received a nice amount of interest, showings, and best of all, offers. Big news... We'll be moving in less than a month. Yay!
For over two decades, our house has taken very good care of us. It was a wonderful home in which to raise our family, situated in a quiet, private neighborhood of Rowayton, Connecticut. And although we will all dearly miss living here, we look forward to a change of scenery.
For a while now, I have longed for a snug and cozy cottage. We have made an offer on a house two miles away that is just that. It has great potential and very well may be the cottage of my dreams. So if things work out as planned, we will be moving there in a mere three weeks.
Now we begin the arduous task of packing up 23 years of stuff. To make things a bit easier, we've hired a company to run an estate/moving sale where we'll be selling unneeded furniture and even some of my collections. Lots to do — so you may not hear from me as much in the coming days. However, once we move, you can be sure I'll share our new home, sweet home with you.
