Packing for a New Adventure


"I want to help, Yaya."  
"I love the beautiful paintings, Yaya."
"Are we leaving the Nashville house forever,Yaya?"
And so it is that another project is finished...
Another adventure to remember,
and a future adventure to look forward to...
We travel with work,
and we have learned to make the best of it...
It isn't for everyone, that's for sure,
but it has worked for us...
I have always chosen to see the travel as a blessing...
A gift...
A new adventure.


Everywhere we go, 
we collect...
and collect...
and collect some more.
Oil paintings,
books,
Italian dishes,
English china,
table linens...
Antiques...
Chandeliers...
The list goes on and on.
It is always exciting to load the trailer,
and the big Ford truck,
and the suburban,
with all our collected treasures from each trip...
Each project...
Each new adventure...
We are not sure what direction the next adventure will take us,
but for now,
we will spend time at the lake house,
the island house,
and the old family country house.
That, within itself, is a huge blessing,
and one I'm looking forward to.
I'm ready to get back to the countryside, and plant hundreds of buttercups,
Irises, Knockout Roses...a million flower seeds...blooming shrubs...
The list goes on and on...

A few thoughts for the day...

Celebrate beauty in everyday living...

"I want everything in my world to be beautiful,
and resonate with love,
and God,
and angels...
Peace...
Kindness...
Tranquility...
Passion and an excitement for life...
And travel...
And adventure."

Blessings,
Yaya

Oh yes ...

I have edited your list to what I collect or what collects me ... This past year we have packed up our late mother in laws home of 70 years & lot of random things have come home with us & I have been creative about blending in some of the bits with what we already have ...

A lovely post!
