Fly Free

I have been intrigued these last few years by other people, mostly bloggers, who have a theme word or phrase for the new year. I have not done this myself, just because nothing really came to mind. With the new year, I've been seeing quite a few people sharing again. This time a phrase keeps sticking in my mind: Fly Free.

I'm not entirely sure why this is, but I can't get it out of my mind. Fly Free. For this nest-loving person, it's a bit of an odd idea. I'd much rather just cozily sit in my perch and fluff the stuffin' and love on my little chickadees.

This will be a year though that I think I will truly need to stretch my wings. I have been uprooted and pried from my comfortable nest already. I've been trying to nest in other perches with some success and am looking forward to the upcoming migration--which sounds better than another move--to a place with room to soar.

I don't know what this will all end up like, even this blog will probably change. But I am excited. I thought the people that bought our home last spring were a bit crazy to move to a place one of them had never even walked through. Now I am the crazy one. It looks like we will be closing on the home in Idaho by the 17th and move in by the end of the month. And, no, I've never been to Idaho.

I am so looking forward to have room for all the things we've been dreaming of doing for years! We'll have just over five acres, a pond, a barn, and a beautiful grove of trees. I have all sorts of ideas and projects running through my brain, not the least of which is painting everything in sight. ;) And Sweetheart has said he'll even paint the gables green for me.

Thanks for sticking with me these last months. I know blogging has been sporadic and not as I would like. I did add a page with some of the Simple Living blogs I wrote in the past. It's not all pretty yet, but it's there. I am looking forward to sharing our new life with you all as I Fly Free.

Got to the painting the gables green and just sighed. What a lovely, lovely thought. And more than that--a possible reality.

You've aptly named your Sweetheart.

Blessings as you Fly Free and experience joy in the new nest. Sounds like you have an adventure ahead of you. Your name for the year is perfect.

Many blessings as you go into this New Year with your hopes and dreams. Fly Free, my friend, and let us know where you land. Can't wait to hear how God leads and blesses you and your precious dear ones.

Dearest Kimberly,

Wasn't I surprised to come here to catch-up (I have been so remiss in my blog reading)and here I find you are moving to Idaho!

I am so excited for you and this wonderful blessing! I just know you will be so "at home" in your new place.

It doesn't look like you will have to time to come for a visit before you leave...I blame myself for my lack of invitation (something I am struggling and working on this year.) But just in case you have a day that is not filled...COME FOR A VISIT! Just call and say you are coming...yep, I really mean that.

Once you get settled in, please blog and include LOTS of photos of your new home...what a fun journey you have ahead.

Your friend and kindred spirit,
Shan
