Little by little over the past 4 to 6 months, we have moved the majority of our smaller belongings over to the house in Hooterville.
Tomorrow morning, March 4th, the movers are scheduled to come and move the large pieces of furniture for us.
It’s been a long, sometimes stressful, and very emotional journey to get there but, after Friday I will officially be a full-time resident of Hooterville.
The best way I can describe my feelings about this move to Hooterville is “bittersweet.”
During the 35 years we’ve lived here, many memories have been made in this house—the cozy little home that is the namesake of my blog. This was the first home my hubby and I bought. A couple times through the years we considered moving but we never did because we liked the neighborhood so well. I think I may have mentioned before that I also spent my childhood years in this same neighborhood, living and playing just a mere 4 streets away, and attending schools in the immediate area. Needless to say, my roots here run very deep and it is extremely difficult for me to leave this house and neighborhood without feeling some pangs of sadness.
Good-bye My Cottage of Bliss.
You weren’t big or fancy but you were “home” in every sense of the word. I’m sure going to miss you.
