I have moved a lot in my life. I lived out of my backpack for vast chunks of time. Or set up house, worked and dreamed in one place for a months or years, then gave it all away and wandered off with a backpack again. I got really good at carrying 'home' with me. But I have been in one place for ten years. I love that place. I love the garden, the view, the neighbours, the critters I shared that land with. But life is a funny ole journey and I have moved to the next valley. I learned that moving as a mama is another story altogether. Especially as a parent of someone who doesn't like change very much. It's been a big time. Feeling super grateful for friends who helped us move and made it home.
Luckily, I LOVE my new house and the gardens and land around it. We're still exploring but as Jed said the other night, 'we fit here mama, it feels like we've lived here a long time already'. I have been hard at work in the gardens and Jed's befriending some impressive looking eels in the stream that runs alongside the house. I hope we get to stay for a long time.
It's a time of big changes but I feel very blessed.
Phoenix the dog was a bit befuddled by moving, he kept creeping into any open bags or boxes...just in case we forgot him I think. Funny wee creature.
So anyway, that's why the big bloggy silence around here. Life has been full. (Now that's a freaking understatement!) But it's good and I look forward to sharing more of it with you. x
