around here. stepping stones

October 17 2013 011

life is always changing, isn’t it?

not too long ago we lived in a small one bedroom apartment on the beach, a place we held onto for as long as we could

mostly because we were afraid of change

a yellow house across the water opened up and without any more hesitations we quickly made the change

we tried hard to make that yellow house work

but it seemed that no matter what we did, it pushed us out

either way, all good, it was a stepping stone towards where we are today

in a much better place

life in this new home is much different from the life in the one bedroom apartment and from the one in the yellow house for that matter

life here is quieter and more private

just the three of us for the most part with some good friends popping in from time to time

perhaps just another stepping stone to an even much quieter and more private life to come one day

and that’s just what life is isn’t it?

a bunch of stepping stones…

happy monday friends

hope you all had a great weekend. i enjoyed one out of two. it was a sick day for me yesterday
