Bye-Bye House


Today is the BIG day--closing day on our South Florida home. Off we go on our new adventure! We're moving to the Tampa area--four hours northwest of here.

I promise to respond to each and every comment, but I may need a day or two to get back online.

Sally... I don't remember the reason for the move... or did I miss it... I love the Tampa area.. but I'm not sure I'd want to leave Miami... so what prompted your move... will you share again?

hope the move goes well...

Sally, You are beginning another phase in your life... I'm so excited for you.

Glad you told me that you would keep the posts coming --even when you are going to be off-line.

God-speed---and be SAFE.
God Bless!

How exciting, but I know you get mixed emotions, sad too for leaving a house you lived in for years. Good luck on the move and be safe!...Christine

Well here you go Miss Sally~~a new adventure!! Tampa is wonderful...all of my family lives there (in the north tampa/Lutz area) and that is where I grew up. We moved to the Atlanta area 14 years ago this month..whew, I just realized that~~LOL!
Can't wait to see your new house..Be careful and pace yourself.

Moving can be so bittersweet. Having to say goodbye to a house that you love, and to friends that you've made...but then there is a new home to learn to love, and family, and new friends.

Don't work too hard! And come back whenever you can squeeze in the time.

Darlene said...

Hopefully by the time you read this you will be sitting comfortably at your desk in your new apartment... and it won't be long before you'll find yourself in your new home. I think you'll come to love Tampa very much as you settle in.
