Constitution St

Where have I been for the past 7 weeks? Totally, utterly and completely immersed in the finishing off of this beautiful cottage. We have lived here, in this home that we love, for 8 and 1/2 years. We have loved, laughed, cried, hugged, created, destroyed, taught, learnt, built, changed, painted, and ultimately grown up rather a lot. What this wonderful place has taught me I will be eternally grateful for. I find it hard to even wrap my thoughts around how much history has happened in our lives as we have lived and loved here. Changes happen, of course, and it is time for our lives to take a turn in the road. From next week this home will be up for sale, and we will be looking towards our future and the next big leap in our story. We are experiencing a mix of excitement and sadness – we have loved living here, it has given us so much. What we have in front of us, however, fills us with such joy – and that would be the only way we could possibly have let go of this. Change is such a loaded experience isn’t it?
