Saying Goodbye To Elle Cottage

It has been an exhausting couple of weeks around here but especially for my husband and his parents. The time had come to sell their little cottage on the central coast and though we will all miss the place, things are changing for my inlaws and simplifying life had become very important.

So for two straight weekends, moving out took place because the little house sold so quickly and the new owner wanted occupancy in 21 days. But it is finally over. I am relieved for my husband, hoping he can get some much needed rest.

I did not go the last couple of weekends because our youngest was very sad to say goodbye to the house and with two little puppies, mom needed to stay home. When her toys from up north came home she was happy as a clam and played for hours with them.


Yesterday we moved furniture around to make room for some of the pieces from up north. I wanted to just wait but you know my hubby. If he can find a new surface to decorate, he is on it. Funny guy but I think it relaxes him.

So we say goodbye to Elle Cottage but we will not say goodbye to Cambria. We love it up there and already have plans to head up in October. I think I will enjoy just showing up, relaxing and leaving the place we stay for someone else to care for.

Tis the end of an era for your family, and I can see how cute the cottage is. It needed to be sold, and as you said, you can still visit and enjoy Cambria.

Glad you have the fond memories. My grandparents lake house holds the greatest memories for me.

Now it is time for new memories to be made, what an adventure.

I agree with Michelle, but it's still tough to see it come to an end. Looks like such a sweet place to have called home.

Maybe hubs should be blogging about his decorating endeavors.

Well it's never easy, but when one door closes another one opens.

My best to you and yours.

We love Cambria.....in fact we' were there last week. My favorite shop was Hearts Ease. Not sure I like the new name....never as cute as when Sharon Lovejoybowned it.
Maybe we will see you at the Cambria Pines Lodge or on Moonstone beach!!!! best of luck to all of you.

Oh gosh, I am so sorry Elaine. I imagine you must feel the way we did when the Big Bear cabin sold.

It is bittersweet, isn't it? I'm hoping that new adventures await. God's speed...

Sounds bittersweet, but glad you can still visit Cambria and keep precious memories there.

That's so sad but you'll have some great memories. I do love that table cloth! Very pretty.

The cottage is so lovely Elaine... I can understand how it would be hard to say 'Goodbye' to it.

I am so sorry to hear this. I totally missed this posting the other day. It must be a very sad time for the family, but I understand. I love Cambria so much. Been taking my daughter there for years to recharge our batteries. Haven't been able to go now in almost two years due to husband being sick and I miss it so much. Many new memories will be made in different ways.
