Movin' and Groovin'

Tyler and I are officially homeowners! We are all moved in. I took all of last week off from Coriander Girl while Kerri watched the shop and we did some serious work on the new place. When you have an incredible team of family helping, you can sure get a lot accomplished. My heart is bursting with gratitude for Penny and Bill Hogan who stepped up to help us in so many ways and to my dear parents, Donna and Wally for all you've done, your generosity is so greatly appreciated. Trav and Natasha, for moving us down five flights and no elevator, we owe you big time! Coriander Dad, you know I'd sink without you. The loving support of our friends and family astounds us, thanks for all the well wishes these past couple of months. We are truly blessed and we know it.

Saturday night fever, I know I'm burnin' up!

Penny on a latter painting away, this sight is nothing new. I swear this woman doesn't stop! I didn't get a pic of my mom but she also had a hand in painting our place. Thanks beauties!

This little desk was built by my great grandfather for his daughter many years ago, my dad gave it to us for the new place.
The white quilt on our bed is from the lovely ladies at Feather Factory. If you haven't been yet, you must go.

Just a little teaser of some of the work we've done on the place. We feel so spoiled to have laundry in our home! We're used to lugging it five flights down with no guarantee of an available machine. My darling, after working a full day would often do mine as I was far too exhausted to go up and down those darn stairs. Our first night at the house we lay in bed giggling like school children. This home is quickly becoming a haven for us.

Hi There!
Your new place looks like a brick Victorian condo unit on Patterson St in Belle-----. Virtually identical. Awesome! Enjoy your new place.
Regards, Laura

Hi Ali!
Well, you know, I thought they actually were the ones on Patterson St. I lived on the top floor, second unit from Pinnacle St in hmmm, let me see..1981!!! Were you even born then??!!LOL
Welcome to Hastings County! You are going to LOVE it here!! I have been in the area since 1964 (gads I'm old...not really!...just turned 50) We do have the best of both worlds!!
Regards, Laura
