We decided a week or so ago to move to Portland...I feel good about the decision, excited really...but I will admit that I am dealing with feelings of loss. I have come to love this home...in a way one can love a home...in the short 5 years we have lived here, we have amassed a heart full of memories...the love and work and dreams we have lived here...
There is a part of me that realizes this is irreplaceable...this place is unique...but so is my marriage...and I miss Joe, and long for our life when we spent our time together as oppossed to now, were it's only a few days a week...I know in my heart that this is the right direction we need to follow.
I will miss most of all the woodpeckers, my Japanese Maples...my Bamboo...my kitchen...Pookie's Garden...were I have spent many mornings just sitting and being happy.
I hope whoever ends up with this home, enjoys it as much or even more than we have...I can't do more than that.
