We have arrived! Between getting our house in Virginia ready to sell, packing up all our worldly goods, house hunting, finding the perfect Kentucky home, and all the pre-closing necessities, we have been in a state of transition for nearly four months. That will all come to a grand and welcome conclusion next week when we sign the closing papers. We won't have furniture for another week as it travels from Virginia, but we will have a home! None of this would have been possible (at the very least I would not have remained sane) without the kindness and hospitality of our daughter and her husband. They have been AWESOME!!
All this time separated from the majority of my art supplies has been a real eye-opener. It has also shown me just how much I NEED to create. I'm not gonna lie, it's been a bit frustrating not being able to head to my workroom and find whatever I need, BUT it has also given me a new appreciation for that luxury. I cannot wait to set up my new space and get to work!
One of perks of this tether-free time was spending an evening with my daughter at something that was billed as "Paint and Sip." We joined a group of about 40 other women and a very patient teacher to create our own masterpieces in just a couple of hours. When I say that guy was patient, I'm not doing him justice. The only male in a sea of estrogen and some of those women took on the sipping part like it was their job. He took it all in stride and we really did end up with a beautiful piece of art. It was so much fun to see all the different results from a single example with identical instructions. No two were the same and all were wonderful.
I am so happy to be here and I'm so ready to settle into our new Kentucky life!
