Naming our Home

I have always named the things, the expressions, and the experiences in my life that are important to me.

And so today our new to us home in El Paso is duly christened 

- and of course there is a story.

My husband and I have been on a journey since March 15th when we sold our home of 27 years and moved 800 miles  from a community where we had lived over 40 years.

After 4 months in El Paso , we found a home, bought it, and we began moving in on July 26th.

This was waiting high up under the eave of our front door on the first day we moved .

A nest of 4 baby swallows ( golondrinas in Spanish) were waiting for us and welcomed us to our new home. 

Each day of our move in, they were there.

I look forward to sharing this journey with you.
I have so much about this process and its ups and downs that I look forward to sharing with you.

And then of course there is the house.
Day by day we are settling into this wonderful quirky house -which of course is my favorite kind- and it is slowly grabbing my heart. 

I look forward to sharing that with you as well:)
