We closed yesterday on our house in Delaware, which brought an end to an exhausting week. I can't imagine how much harder it would have been if we had tried to move ourselves! Anyway, we're now in Virginia. It has been a really emotional week for me, and I've already had moments of missing my Delaware pals, wondering if we'll find our niche in Virginia, and struggling with whether we made the right decision. That being said, I did get choked up yesterday when I got my first glimpse of the Blue Ridge. (Delaware is pretty darn flat for those of you who aren't familiar with it). And it was so sweet to hug my parents and know that we're not saying goodbye for a long time.

I've lived in PA & DE for 11 years, so it's like I'm getting to know my hometown all over again. There's been a lot of growth here due to DC commuters, but still nothing like the I-95 corridor. Steve and I went out for breakfast this morning and I saw a table full of people I know, and then we went to a home improvement show where I saw another familiar face, so it already has that small-town feel. I'm sure it will help to have a place to call home (2 more days!) and get buried in boxes and paint swatches. I can't wait to get my studio set up, even though it's going to be in the basement this time instead of the 3rd floor with skylights and treetops. Sigh.

I'm fine, just going through a lot this week.
