Moving, again ...?

When things are going good, my life feels like synchronized swimming, otherwise it's a dog paddle. :-)   I'd say the next two months are going to more like synchronized swimming with a little dog paddle thrown in for good measure. Just to give you an example of what I'm talking about, a little over a year ago, my son, David, drove a van to Florida with the help of friends.  The contents of the van were stuff for his apartment, stuff for the friends' apartment, and stuff for the studio.  

When David and the van arrived, muscle was waiting for him.  They unloaded the truck and immediately went to our home in Florida (two blocks away) which is where Laura lived while she was finished her degree at USF.  Laura was in motion to move to her new place. 

Four days later, Jim and I moved to FL with the rest of the contents of the house.   

Well, it's happening again.  We've sold our Maryland home and will be settling in late July.  Laura and her husband, Matt, have put a contract on a home and, assuming it passes today's home inspection, they'll be settling in late July!  

In less than two weeks, we'll be "breaking through to the other side!" at PWF.  From the minute we moved in a year ago, the space felt cramped.  So, our tenant is moving across the street and leaving a gorgeous space for our gallery! Which means that I might (that's a BIG "might") have room for this stuff ... 

plus two potter's wheels, a pug mill, and a clay extruder.   I can't wait to get clay under my fingernails!  Yeah, right!  I's the other stuff that's so much fun! I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

Sounds like there is a lot of moving going on with the Lewis family. ;-)

Congrats to all the above. I'm so
excited for you on the shop and
selling the house! And tell Laura
congrats as well,
there is nothing more thrilling than
your first home. I can imagine
how cute it will be after seeing
her tackle a store front window display!
Exciting things ahead for PWF!
Keeping you all in my prayers
for smooth waters. XO

Keep us informed Barb - I'm feeling a move coming on here too from Michigan to NC and am frightened out of my wits. I need a good reality check and hearing you talk about yours helps.

Isn't it wonderful when everything lines up? I am so excited for you and your new gallery space. I know that being there is where you are meant to be! Enjoy the day, Miss Barbara.

At least you are always moving forward, Barbara.
Good luck with the new space. I can't wait to see it.
