into the light

the good

we are here... as of yesterday, fully moved in and word/number play person that i am, i have always loved this address... it is a number family! 

the not-so-good

a white kitty who has discovered the fireplace and is a bit too chubby and lazy to clean himself up... he prefers napping - under the covers... i'll take this level of not-so-good...

the ugly

the teeniest, tiniest glimpse of it... but i am happy to announce that i located toothbrushes and toothpaste the first night... and the cable i needed for my camera today... 

the 5+ year old snapple cap that kept my eyes open...

the sincerest thanks to those who helped me through a most challenging period... words fail... the heart remembers... 


  1. Congratulations on your move! I find it so cathartic to start feathering another nest!

  2. I agree with Lori...a move and new place are so cathartic...a fresh start. Thinking of you!

  3. Those words on that Snapple cap... it's hit a place in my heart that makes me slap myself for even thinking of giving up today. Thank you.

  4. Congratulations! May your new home be filled with blessings and joy!

  5. I am sending as much healing light and love as I can throw your way... Glad you are settling.

  6. I didn't know you were moving-here's hoping you settle in fast. And by that I mean, find your jewelry making tools and supplies!

  7. Congratulations on the move! May it inspire you ;) Your shots are awesome....and that snapple cap, well, incredible timing on seeing that ;)

  8. Blessings on this new move and adventure...Now the fun begins..opening up the boxes and organizing and rediscovering goodies.Hugs,Cat

  9. Hi M
    I have been thinking about you so much this past week. I knew you were busy, so I didn't worry, just glad to hear you are moved.

    BTW, the Ugly really IS ugly ~lol~

  10. Oh, so good to hear that you are moved! Abundance and peace in your new home... and many blessings from the forest - and Pasha cat who likes the idea of a white kitty in a sooty fireplace, but is a bit too fastidious to dare being dirty!

  11. May the new home offer shelter to you and yours; may there be love and laughter within its walls. The good, the not-so-good and the 'ugly' will all end up very good.
    Here's to changing directions!

  12. congratulations on overcoming obstacles, on being brave, on fighting for freedom! LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!

  13. Glad your move has gone smoothly and that you will soon be unpacking your 'life' boxes.
    Sigh - after 12 months my life is still in boxes

  14. Hopefully your furry friend has cleaned the firebox to your standards.....they are such helpful souls. Best wishes in finding everything you packed.....somewhere around here......

  15. Ah, it's ALL good MJ! Congratulations :)

  16. i found myself thinking about you this morning and wondering how your move was progressing..thanks for sharing the bottle cap wisdom, a wonderful reminder..
    i alternate between freaking myself out, or being light hearted over the opportunity for change my upcoming move will bring..hope your move and new home will bring about joy and peace for you and your family.

  17. I just sit here with the biggest smile on my face!
    And that Winston - clever guy!

  18. MD - positive vibes for the settling in time. B

  19. i am oh-so-happy for you maire. moving is a stressful thing, and i know that the piles of boxes was not the least of it. but you are forging your new path, you are shining your light, you are heading toward the future with a growing confidence and happiness. enjoy this new adventure.
    may your new home be filled with light, love, laughter. may your heart be filled with the same.
    enjoy the day, dear one.

  20. So delighted that you are able to move into a house that holds so many great memories for you (I went back and read through your posts…).

    I think if you are fortunate enough to have the opportunity to spend valuable time with extended family growing up, and helping them with their creative ventures - which influences your life in the most positive ways - that you are most blessed. Then to share that same space with your ventures and that of your children, and possibly your children's children one day… That is just breathtaking!

    I hope that your household items find their place as your grandparents did. Embrace all that emotionally is going to come at you. I know you will have waves of emotions to miss them even more, but they will be there with you…

    Look forward to seeing more posts of your progress...
