Today I am missing our "things"...our "stuff"....our "home"...When we made the decision to move to Switzerland, we were living in New Brunswick in a lovely rented house that we fixed up (they let us paint anything and everything, whatever colour we wanted!...I always wanted green apple kitchen cupboards :) ) When all was decided, we gave up the house, sold most of our furniture and donated a lot of things, packed everything up that we wanted to keep and ship to Switzerland when the time came (It is in storage in NB right now-32 boxes and a few odd items...out "things"). We then moved to Ontario to my mom's place, where we now rent out part of the house. Our thoughts were this: This way we were ready to move at the drop of a hat once Justin got a job offer, we wouldn't have a lease, packing, or downsizing to deal with. Original plan was to move this Spring, but we decided that it would be best for Justin to get his actual teaching license (he does have teaching experience, but his other tow university degrees are not in teaching). Long story short, we are here at my mom's place for a little while longer. While we have a few things that we brought with us (mostly Felix's things to be honest), sometimes, I just miss our "things"...our own space. 
Want to reminisce with me? Here are some photos of our old place....

 Having to wait a long time for something very exciting to happen can be frustrating at times, but I just keep reminding myself that it is definitely worth all the sacrifices that we have been making. The end goal is worth the wait. In the mean time, I definitely try to enjoy the moment too....but sometimes, it's okay to be a little sad too :).



  1. i LOVE your kitchen and all the bright colors - the green cabinets are so pretty! wishing you and your family all the best and lots of luck with your husband's interview. <3

  3. I love your decorating style. It is lovely that you have these photos to remember and show your son where he lived when he is older.

    1. Thank you! :) I am really glad that we have the photos. I still enjoy looking at old photos from my first baby room...so I hope Felix will too :)
      I am sure with all your moving experiences, you know exactly how it feels to miss certain places :)
