amm would be so delighted to know that her dear grand-daughter Arrine will soon have much more space to practice her early stages of crawling, then standing and walking and before we know it, running. We have purchased a new home that will give Arrine the space she deserves as a little one on the go.
amm would love to see how I have been packing and organizing boxes for the move. I have colour coded stickers on the boxes that correspond to various rooms of the new home, depending on which floor they are on. Then the boxes are labeled with the room and contents. This way our hired help (a.k.a. family) cannot have any excuse for not knowing where to move something to in the new home! 🙂
But I am sad to leave our cozy little house. This is the first home Nicholas and I bought together. And we have spent so much time renovating to make it ‘ours’. And this is where we brought Arrine home for the first time. I think what I find sad most of all is that this is the home where I have my most recent memories of amm. I can walk through the kitchen and picture her sitting at our kitchen table the last time she was in our home. I won’t have those memories in our new home. And I don’t want to forget.
