Let's take a look back in time:
We moved to Missouri in 2016 but this
photo was taken January 4th while
still in Colorado. On the 29th we
planned to close on our Missouri
home so my husband drove the first
truck load from Colorado to Missouri
and I drove one of our cars.
After staying in Missouri for a week we
headed back to Colorado to pack up more
items and finish getting our home ready to
put it up for sale. It was weird having
furniture set up in 2 houses. We decided
to leave this deer mount in Colorado:
Time rolled by as we continued to pack
and my husband did most of that - he
is a good packer. We had professionals
load both of our truck loads and so we
were ready to leave Colorado on March
17 and our house went on the market
that day. We left early and drove
straight through and the next day we
started unloading. It was so weird
having green grass and seeing this Forsythia in bloom on the
side of the house.
I loved the new location for my armoire right
in the kitchen. It was chipped up a bit
but my husband said "hey, it doesn't matter,
it's shabby chic - remember"!
During this entire summer I worked
very hard digging and working
on flower gardens. It was hard
on the knees for sure!
I had to admit that starting from scratch
with gardening was really a challenge.
In June I set up what
I called a sunset tea on
my front walk.
Yes, I was finally getting some
flowers for bouquets too!
On this day in August (below)I set
up a "Tea In The Garden" but later
we dug up that wisteria and moved
the trelis to the other side of the yard.
This month brought the arrival of a
fence for our yard - at least the sides
and later we had them do the back too.
We added an arbor to our yard in October!
November was a time for wonderful
smells in the kitchen and Lynn Bean's
Orange Cranberry Bread
December was finally here and
It was time to share our nativity
for Christmas in Missouri:
Well - now I caught that up
so I need to do 2017!
