The last several months have been eye opening for us. Temporarily squashed into an even tinier space in our home got us to clarify this journey we've been on. It's been layer after layer peeling away like an onion.
When we moved into this house, we downsized, hoping to be able to make an addition to this home. That dream is not going to be realized here. We saved and stored things that we hoped to use someday in a larger space, and now after all these years it's time to let it go.
As we started to put our furniture back, we only kept those pieces we really loved. We're letting go of our someday dreams so that we can live today in the here and now. Miss Mustard Seed put it perfectly the other day in one of her posts. She said that even though the stuff was stored away, just knowing it was there was causing her stress. I feel the same way, and even though I don't know Miss Mustard Seed, she became a kindred spirit that day.
I'm excited because we're really close now.
