WHEN ONE DOOR CLOSES, ANOTHER ONE OPENS

with one comment

I took this photo during the move, it was of the same mirror from these photos… I was mostly drawn to the light coming in as the movers lugged the boxes out of the house.

I hadn’t noticed the other story in this photo, until a couple of friends on instagram commented about the open door… Oh my goodness, how apt was that! here we are closing the door on this chapter, and out through the open door to a new adventure. I love that.

Wow, thanks so much for your kind words and messages of support for our moving day and my little Time Capsule… You guys are the best! I’m happy to announce the winner picked at random, for a spot on Creating Time Capsules is… Leigh Love - I’ll be in touch later today with all the details you need.

One week to go till 12.12.12… There is quite a wonderful group growing over on Facebook, to take on this project and tell the story of their day in the life… I know not everyone likes Facebook, but I found it can be a great place for people to gather… I’ve been sharing various bits of inspiration over there and we’re counting down the days… “We’re all in this together” – Why don’t you jump on board?

MOVING DAY

with 52 comments

Today’s the day.

It’s good and sad all rolled into one. This house is the longest space we’ve ever lived in as a couple and a family, it’s going to be hard letting go. Not sure what the next chapter will bring… we’re open to all possibilities.

I made a film for our goodbye, just some simple iphone photos and a little conversation from the boys. Not the finished product I’d hoped for or planned for, but you know what… it’s enough… it’s enough for me… it’s enough for us… I showed it to all the boys last night, and I cried (of course), not because it’s particularly emotional, it’s just the end of a chapter. That’s what a Time Capsule is for, taking your memories, telling your stories and making something you can hold on too.

As a celebration of our move, fresh starts & making Time Capsules… I’m going to do a give-away! One spot on the new self-paced version of Creating Time Capsules… leave a comment here, telling me what you find difficult letting go of, or a moving story or even just say hello. Whatever takes your fancy!

I’ll announce the winner next Wed… when there’s one week to go till 12.12.12… are you on board?

See you on the other side…

Down come our hall of fame today… the collection of photos framed on our wall. It signified so much…

I will miss this house.
