On the Other Side

We're celebrating!
We are finally on the other side of our packing, moving, and house selling activities! Hip-hip-hooray!!! It has been grueling for the past couple of weeks, but we’re ecstatic that we have reached this point and can now begin a new chapter in our lives!

We have settled in pretty well at our rental quarters. We still have a bit more unpacking to do in our offices. The place is starting to feel like home and we have acclimated to an entirely different layout. We are very grateful to find a comfortable place for our “camping” period while we build our new cottage. Next week, we will purchase the lot and sign the contract with the builder.

But for now, we’re taking a much needed little vacation for the remainder of this week. We’ll be returning to Kentucky’s Beaumont Inn for another Thanksgiving celebration. This time we will be sharing the holiday and relaxing with two dear friends of ours. Thanksgiving 2009 will have a special meaning for us.

I greatly appreciate everyone’s good wishes during this lifetime milestone experience! It means so much to both of us. And I promise to catch up with all my blogging friends next month!

  10. Donna~I'm strolling in to catch up and especially to wish you and your loved ones a Happy Thanksgiving!
    It's such a wonderful time to stop and reflect on all those we cherish and are truly grateful for.

    Even though our Thanksgiving is very small in number, with hubby and son (we don't count the cat cause she doesn't like turkey). We don't scrimp on the menu...from appetizers to desserts with several carb loaded dishes in between! We will be enjoying tryptophan playoffs too!

    Sweet Holiday wishes,

  11. Happy Thanksgiving, Donna, and all my best wishes for moving! It's so amazing that selling your cottage happened all of a sudden, after a long time of waiting.
    Thank you for your visit on my blog, I'm always glad to see you have been there!
    Best wishes, Maria
