Life right now…
I’m trying to slow it down… to breathe, to take it in.
To realize that the house that we are diving into means the house we are leaving behind.
Eric’s ready to go – he’s said his goodbyes, and has made his peace with leaving “our” place. I think he’s aching for his to be “man cave” and the bright future we have ahead.
I know that I’ll look back and smile, pat his knee and think of the time we “survived” when we got kicked out of this place, but for right now my heart is aching a little.
It’s all the memories that are held within those walls that I know I’ll take with me, I just won’t have those physical daily reminders.
Like that bright teal door – which we stood in front of when we had our first kiss.
My first Christmas in Seattle when we placed fake snowflakes in every window to make it feel more like ‘home’ for me, and then Eric got down on one knee in front of our first Christmas tree together and asked me to be his wife.
After our wedding, we walked through that stupid teal door and declared it OUR home.
Swan shower doors - Really do I need to elaborate?
What helps my heart is capturing the little things, so for now, my camera is strapped around my neck, taking photos of the place that is ours.
