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.
