Change of Address

Have I failed to mention to all of you why:
... we're purging like mad?
... my etsy shop will be closed from December 20th until the new year?
... we don't have a single holiday decoration up in the apartment?
... instead of giving only handmade gifts that we made ourselves this Christmas, we'll be giving handmade goods by others and other locally purchased gifts, too?


Two days after we return from Cleveland, Barry and I will become first-time home owners of a pretty little loft here in Portland. We'll be moving in at the end of the month, two short days after we get back from Cleveland. Things have been hectic around here for the past couple weeks to say the least, but it's all worth it. This is the perfect way for us to welcome in the new year, I'd say.

LeeAnn said...

Ahhhh! So exciting! Do you feel any less stressed since you signed your name on the dotted line? (Though our line wasn't dotted when we signed. It was solid. Slightly less enjoyable.) Did you lure in enough friends to help with the move with the promise of delivered pizza? Enjoy your time in Cleveland!

Mariss said...

home-owners - super! congratulations to you and Barry! I am very happy for you, having a place of your own means that this was the last time somebody decided in your place it was time to go. huzza!

I still have a small present for you, but I didn't know where to send it so I kept it - if you feel like it, mail me your new adress as soon as things are slightly settled.
have fun!
