This past weekend, I spent some time packing since the house is on the market, and it will all have to be packed at some point.  I was feeling so nostalgic, and having such mixed feelings about leaving my house.  The girls and I have shared so many memories here, and we’ve changed it so much, and made it our own.  (According to the feedback of potential buyers, we may have made it a little too much our own.)   The Saturday mail arrived, and in it was a copy of Elle Decoration Norge, featuring a 6 page spread on my house.  It’s so beautiful, but it really made me sad about leaving……

Shoes pulled out of the closet, waiting to be packed.

Pictures of the girls when they were young waiting to be packed away.


A whole new world awaits us…when my house sells.
