Moving along.....

I have been consumed with painting, packing and moving this last week, which really sucks because I have not had time to take photos of the food I have been making or for that matter making anything that is blog worthy.

Moving isn't fun, I really hate packing and realizing that I can live without everything I own. ( except the dishes my daughter & me hand painted when she was 5, my most treasured possession).
We had a grunge sale today, and had 10 customers! 10!! Yes, that's all folks. I guess that is what happens when you live on a gravel road up a huge hill in a very unpopulated place. We made a whole whopping ten dollars! haha.

I am not a pack rat  nick-nack person, but it feels like I acquire things that have no meaning and no purpose in my life. Its good to purge, it makes me feel lighter. Like the weight of my belongings is dragging me down.
We have never stayed in one place for very long, and because of that I seem to let things go very easy. (probably because it won't fit in the car)

Love and happiness is all that I need.

 my love & happiness


  1. Kirsten,

    Look forward to hearing about the new place - I'll call Jonathan soon! Sounds like you are all doing really well. I certainly enjoy all of your recipes! and photos!


  2. Good luck unpacking. I always shed things when we move. And I'm always surprised at just how much stuff we've accumulated. Far cry from when I could pack everything in my trunk.

    Congrats on the $10. Such cute sweet love and happiness! Amanda

  3. I am with you on that. I have moved close to 30 times and I hate packing things that I don't care about. I always have a big old purge before I head on to the next place. Good luck with your move!

  4. Here's to love and happiness mama!

  5. Kirsten, I know this is not a time when you can spare time - but I gave you a little award thing...

    Don't feel obligated to play along, I just want more people to go to your blog :)
