I can't believe I gave in.

For over 2 years Mr. Mr. has being throwing around the idea of selling out home and finding a "new" one in our neighborhood that suits our growing family.  For 2 years I have fought the conversation,  I love your little blue house.  It's a 4 bedroom little beauty that we had built 9 years ago.  It's a cozy home that makes me happy when I see it.

But something happened a month ago,while I was taking a walk around our neighborhood with my neighbor, I noticed the house I have coveted since it was built went on the market.  It sits on a corner not and looks over one of our neighborhood "lakes" (The Realtor calls it a lake but I call it a pond with a fancy fountain in the middle) and of course it boasts an additional 1,200 sq ft of living space.  The next day, Mr. Mr. and I had called a Realtor and arranged to view the house by the afternoon, by dinner time the owners had accepted our offer.  Now the freaking out started, we had to get the little beauty on the market and pray someone would love it as much as we did.

We had one week to get the house "show ready", the stress in our house could be cut with a butter knife, but somehow we got it done and we were ready.  What I wasn't ready for was how quickly the showings would start.  Our house hit the market just after 2, and by 2:20 I had 3 showings booked.  By 6 pm we had 2 offers.  It was quick, we didn't have time to think or second guess ourselves.  We were moving.

So here we are 18 days before moving day.

Day #31

I've completed one full month of my 365 project, only 11 more to go.  I hope I can keep myself motivated and that I continue to explore my creative side.

Today I tried my hand at softening an image and giving it some grain for a different feel.  I'm not 100% happy with it but I think if I try a few more times I'll be able to make it look like I wanted it to happen and it wasn't a focus issue.

Day #31

It's hard to believe, Ms. C is 13 years old.  I remember when she was born and preemie clothes were too big for her, now she is full of spit and vinegar and ready to take on the world.
