WHILE WE WERE PACKING..

Posted on: April 27, 2012













We officially move in 4 days! For some reason, this time around, I feel extremely calm and optimistic about it all. I am so excited to start afresh that the notion of upheaving our entire lives and living out of boxes for a few days isn't really bothering me at all. As we pack the boxes one by one, I find myself pondering over old hats and scarves, photos, ticket stubs.. remnants of my many lives past- single life, married life, pregnant life, family life. I can't believe sometimes how much we've been through together, yet I know that the greatest adventures are yet to come.
I have been making a concerted effort lately to always have fresh flowers around the house. They always bring so much life and freshness into the atmosphere of our apartment, and I feel that we really need that now. We may not have a couch to sit on or a pot to cook in (with everything packed and stacked away), but we do have a beautiful bouquet on the table in the morning. I hope to make weekly fresh flowers a regular thing all through the summer.
Oh, and I am thrilled to have rediscovered this box of vintage children's patterns, an old gift from my sister, while rummaging through old boxes. Aren't they simply amazing?? {Why don't they make kids' clothes like that anymore?} I cannot wait to set up my sewing room in our new place and get to work on these.  Biet is going to have some pretty awesome summer dresses {and suspenders and nightgowns and capes!} in a couple of months, courtesy of her Mama.

  1. These photos make me feel so warm inside! Despite its stressfulness, moving IS exciting. We just did it ourselves end of last year, and it was nice to get rid of old clutter and start afresh in a new home. Where are you guys moving to? I hope all goes well, Belle.
    Take care,

    1. Thank you! It's amazing how much clutter we'd accumulated. I hope to keep our new place more simplistic and organized. So far this move has been good to us. xx

  3. Awesome patterns! I wish I had a few, I'd love to make some for my baby-to-be before her arrives!

  4. Those vintage patterns are so darling. I know what you mean about moving. I grew up moving all around, back and forth between South America and the US, usually, and sometimes the change of scenery and fresh start can be refreshing. All the best in your journey!

  5. Loving the glasses, the flowers, and the doll. GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR MOVE! So exciting. We're starting to talk about where we're going to move at the end of this lease and it all just feels so full of possibility! THREE DAYS and you're moving. I hope it all goes well!
