Family Room-8

Wednesday marked one year of our house being on the market. I've been trying to process how I feel about this. For the most part, it's been difficult. Neither Doug nor I do well with limbo. Living in limbo for a year is rough. Really rough. And don't even get me started with living in a "show ready" house with a two-year-old...

But there's also a part of me that is so grateful for this delay. If we had sold last summer (or fall), we wouldn't have the opportunity to relocate to an area we are very excited about. Doug wouldn't have been able to take this new job that he loves. Spencer wouldn't have had this year of school and socialization under his belt. I wouldn't have been able to start a new company. I'm finding peace with where we are at.

While we are very excited to start the next chapter of our lives, we're also ok with being in this chapter a little longer than we expected. There are small blessings that come with that... and I've [finally] chosen to focus on those, rather than the frustration and disappointment in our home not selling. I don't believe that "now the house will sell," but that's ok. It will sell when the time is right, even if it's hard to see that some days.
