Countdown 3 days.....

  So, three more days until we move from our three bedroom two bath home. This place has been our home for six years and six days.  We brought home two of our three babies from the hospital here, and we remodeled the house to fit the personality of our family.  We made a beautiful garden, planted things and watched them grow.  Here we have made many memories that we will never forget.  This has been our home; our safe, comfortable home.  But, life is full of changes, and Aram and I know that change is good.
  So, now we must embark on this new journey for our family.  We are ready, well we think we are.  We are moving to a two bedroom mobile home and yes, it is yellow.   It was Aram's Grandma's home for nearly twenty years, before she passed away a few years ago.  It was her pride & joy, even though it was a piece of junk.  I hated going to visit because it smelled gross, it was dirty, and the neighborhood was well not a very good one.  I obviously judged and didn't even know I was doing it.  We will talk more about her and the mobile home later.   Yes, six years later, here we are moving to this yellow mobile home of all places and we are actually excited about it!
  So, boxes are everywhere and we are prepping to move.  This move, though, is not just a change of location.  We are changing a lot in how we are going to live and this blog is going to be a place where we document those things, as well as give tips on how to change your own life in simple ways.  While the world says,  "gain more and get more," we are realizing it is, "lose more gain more!" 
The kitchen is packed!
