"Don't be afraid to go where you've never gone and do what you've never done, because both are necessary to have what you've never had and be who you've never been"....Mike DooleyThis was a quote passed on by my friend Mary Currin, who created the wonderful Decorated Egg with Angel ornament for our Living Crafts Ornament exchange last year:
Living Crafts Ornament Exchange- Free patterns
It is a fun quote; inspiring, and quite timely for us as we have moved our family 5000km to a new home!
Everyday is filled with details of moving house- finding the things you are missing, changing documents and licenses and such....and filled with a great sense of wonderment at our new home. Salt Spring Island is an amazing place, filled with amazing people, and each time we go out we are reminded of it.
The right things keep happening at the right times.
We meet people inadvertently that we have been in search of....All this has led us to buying a piece of land that we will move onto in March. We'll build a studio there first that will be open for sales, classes and drop in visit by May or June. So wonderful! And in the meantime we are cozy in a cabin on a farm belonging to newly made friends. We have been camping on the island until the day we moved in- and the designated moving day was a day full of snow- almost unheard of here at this time of year. The boys were happy playing in the snow that they thought they'd be missing out on, and we are happy- feeling very well looked after....and at home.
