looking forward...

sidney, christmas day 2009, watching family arrive

i can't believe another year has gone by and christmas is nearly here again! i look back at how many changes there have been over the last few years and it makes me wonder, what is next? life is so unpredictable. even though the day to day seems like so much of the same, when you pause and look back the amount of changes can be surprising.

so, this week i am slowly starting to pull out christmas decorations... going through old photos to see how i decorated last year. i am looking at the evolution of this home over the short time we have lived here and i am amazed! i haven't even shared recent pics since i repainted the living room and kitchen. i have poured a lot into this house, which i don't regret, even knowing this will probably be our second and last christmas here. a short but meaningful stay. this was our first house in georgia, and the first real house we have ever lived in as a family. we have really enjoyed our experience in this house and creating this new life together. it looks like we will be buying our own house soon and starting a whole new adventure! being a new yorker for my entire adult life this will be a whole new experience for me! i'm looking forward to finding a home that will be ours, one where we can decorate how we like and know that if we move it will be our own choice to do so. i'm looking forward to this new adventure ahead, and to sharing it with you!
