Yes, I have arrived...no, not at my new "home" but to that place in life where you have discovered you just don't need so much stuff anymore. Come on now, show of hands--how many of you have way more stuff than you need??? Okay, I see most everyone's hand.
Let me share....the following is a photo of our little cottage on Kauai. R got the keys this weekend and I will share more inside photos once I am there. As we were chatting last night he said, "it's small!" Yes, it is small, the main floor is 20x25 (you do the math :) but, it does have a loft, giving us approximately 700 sq feet of perfect space--give or take a foot!! 700 square feet...good grief, I know people that their master bedroom is that big! Am I envious... not in the least. I'm thinking less to clean, more time to enjoy life,spend time with R and the girlz, monitor Hawaiian Monk Seals, take photos and blog. I will have a roof over my head, a place to cook, a place to sleep.... really what more do I need??
I am so excited for this next chapter of living life simply, being creative on storage spaces and sorting through what's really important and necessary in my life. Hmmmm, now that I think about it, Schatzie's dog kennel will double nicely as a television stand or table for four....just place a piece of plywood on the top cover it with a Hawaiian tablecloth (which I already have) and we're good. Oh, the possibilities are endless!
