Saturday, May 9
shake the leaves off the trees, watch them float down the street.

As I type this, I'm sitting at the top of the balcony in my new house. I'm looking down onto our future living room and dreaming of paint, pastels, and picnics. I cannot wait until we make this house into a home. This white house puts my spirits into a mood of optimism and delight.

I have a plethora of photographs, I know I promised I'd take less, but make one last exception will you? I have been so enthusiastic about the new house that these hands have been happy to take pictures every second possible. Since there are so many photographs, I'll save the conversation for later. We're still not fully settled , we have to go(regretfully) back to Grande Prairie tomorrow to pack the rest of our belongings. It's going to be a long, long, loooonnnng week. I am so looking forward to the day that I can be the slothful, carefree, and lazy Amy that I used to be! xoxoxoxo kiss kiss :) cheeeerie cheerioooo o
