Accepting Change.


Sorry folks it has been awhile since I blogged a new post, my life seems to have taken over the past little while and I have found it hard to keep up!

I have still been knitting a bunch and have kept up with my Hipknitized on facebook as well as my Etsy that you will see the the right of this blog post. 

One thing that has been consuming my time is that I have decided to make a major change in my life and put up for sale the only home I have ever known.  Yes, that's right I have never moved from the home that I was first brought back to as a newborn baby as well as the home where I brought my son home to when he was a newborn.  Now that I'm 30...it's time to make a change.  Change...wow, why is that word so hard for me to accept...I have never been a fan of change be it as it may because most of the "change" in my life has had a negative impact and therefore has lead me to become afraid of the word...

I turned 30 a couple of weeks ago...it didn't really bother me, but I think with age comes wisdom and wisdom comes from experience and to experience different things you need to be more accepting of "change" in you life.  So this is where I'm at...30 years young and ready to accept and let go of certain aspects of my life.  I will see where this road leads me, and continue to take you along the way. 

 The house that I am interested in purchasing is a century farmhouse that is 135 years old, tons of character and charm, plank floors, high ceilings, all the beautiful things an old home has to offer.  It excites me to think of my family living there and beginning new memories.  I have decided not become sad about the things I may leave behind on this new journey, but to be happy about all the new experiences change will bring to my life and embrace them in full force. 

So from here on in "change" will no longer be something to avoid but something to embrace and accept.  Not my typical blog post I know but I'm sure there are a few of you out there who are reading that know what I'm talking about.  Happy Easter to you all!!!
