Where thou art – that – is Home. ~Emily Dickinson
Forty six days after we moved out of our home in Virginia, having traveled through eight states & visiting with many friends, we finally have our keys to the London flat. As an Army wife, I chose this rambling lifestyle and truly believe we carry “home” in our hearts. Whether we’re going to be somewhere for 6 months or 6 years, we hit the ground running with each move.
I’ve known Army spouses who give themselves 48 hours from the time the moving truck drives away to get their house organized & decorated, including the drapes. Our household goods (furniture, etc) will be delivered on Monday. Can’t imagine I’ll have everything done in 48 hours but maybe a week! If the weather is nice, it’ll be a lot longer. I know better than to spend a nice day indoors!
The flat is pretty much a blank canvas:
This isn’t a lifestyle for the faint of heart but the rewards of living in so many different places and getting to meet so many different people, is truly a blessing. It may be only 11 months in London, but my home will be a soft place to land and always open to family and friends.
