.writing a new chapter.

N˚10 :: ghost writer
Well, time is ticking away rather quickly in our neck of the woods. The home is in shambles at the moment as we divide want we feel we need to keep and what we want to sell. Our eyes are set on North Carolina at the moment. Where exactly? That has yet to be determined. I'm excited. Stress is creeping in a little, but I'm okay. What lies ahead of us is a new adventure, a new chapter to be written. I've been in dire need of an adventure and it looks like I'm about to embark on one. As my Uncle mentioned this evening, it's in my blood.

We are planning on having our 'moving sale' at the end of the week next week. As we prepare for it, I realize that I seriously SERIOUSLY have been needing to purge for quite sometime. I have enough craft supplies to start my own store! Most of what I have has been rarely used, some even unopened. That's what happens when you work in a craft supply store for nearly 9 years and then realize you have no time to craft. But hopefully, this will mean I will get some of my money back during the sale. Being realistic during a move can be hard sometimes. When I say that I mean it's like the same conversation I have when I'm actually in a store. Do I seriously see myself using this in the next. . . say month? I know it's cool to have, but seriously, when was the last time I used this? Most of what we have is, in essence, mine which makes it hard for the hubby to help because he's afraid he'll put something in the wrong box. There are clothes, tons of clothes that I had hoped I would have been able to fit again. Home decor. Art and craft supplies. We seriously need to make a killing on this sale. I guess, really, we are writing that new chapter now. The title: On the Path to a Simplified Life. We hope.

**Apologies to anyone reading this who may've gotten totally confused! Ha! My mind is so full right now that things just come out in chunks, so bare with me! :D


  1. Pouring out whatever is in your mind I'm sure feels therapeutic. And indulging you is the least we can do, especially at times like these. Thinking of you...
    Prayers and Wishes!

  2. Good luck in the simplification - hopefully a lot of people will want to buy what you can't/don't want to keep. It's amazing what you can accumulate over the years - I'd be afraid to have a look here.

    Nice effect on the typewriter by the way.

  3. I love adventure and new places. Simplifying is wonderful...the process is not. Try to think ahead at how good it will feel in the months ahead to get rid of clutter. Best wishes and a few prayers coming your way.

  4. Can I tell you how much I love this polaroid of the typewriter? Perfect!
    I know what you mean about wanting to purge, to create more simplicity. I am curious to see where your path will lead you and how the next chapter of your story unfolds. Thank you for sharing this with us!

    By the way - I tagged you on my blog (only if you want to).

  5. First, you know I love this picture ;) Second and most importantly, I know it's scary and stressful and nerve-wracking but this is an ADVENTURE and I'm so excited/happy/proud of you!

  6. love the shot

    i just know this is the greatest new adventure for you!

  7. Thank you thank you everyone!
    I swear, the move we've been
    going through stuff, the more
    overwhelming it's become. But
    I know if I continue to 'plow'
    through this mountain of stuff
    I'll become a better person in
    the end. At least that's the
    goal. ha! ;)

  8. wow, kat...this new adventure of yours sounds very exciting! i hope everything goes wonderfully for you and your family. xo


Just so you know. . . you've already brightened my day!
