It’s Moving Day!

Some people think of moving as an adventure. They love everything related to the experience, from choosing a new location, to finding the right house, to packing and sorting belongings, then arranging them all in a beautifully decorated new home.

I am not one of them.

I’m not a stick-in-the-mud. Really. I don’t have anything against adrenaline-boosting excitement—providing I come through it unscathed—but the thought of moving gives me the willies.

I’d rather eat tofu turkey for Thanksgiving dinner.

Or sing karaoke in front of Simon Cowell.

During the early years of our marriage, my husband and I moved more times than I want to remember. I developed some serious packing skills, but it was never something I enjoyed. All that sorting, packing, loading, and moving! Then the unloading, unpacking, and trying to figure out where everything should go to make the new house a home. These are all things that make my brain want to explode.

And then there’s the decorating issue. Much as I hate to admit it, the decorator gene passed me by. I feel like I’m doing well if I decide which color to paint the walls. The little touches that make a room stand out and give it character? That whole concept escapes me completely. I love seeing what others have done, but doing it myself? That’s like me expecting an invitation to do a guest spot on Dancing with the Stars. It isn’t going to happen.

This explains why the decision to move is not one I make lightly . . . even when it comes to moving into a new home on the Web. But this time it’s different. And the reason for that?

This time all the heavy lifting was done by the amazing team at PulsePoint Design. Kelli, Emily and their crew rolled up their sleeves and tackled all the packing, moving, unloading, and made wonderful suggestions on how to set everything up.

And the end result? Oh, my! What a glorious job they’ve done with that! This beautiful new site is far beyond anything my decorating-challenged brain could come up with.

It’s the time of year we focus on counting our blessings, and this new home on the Web ranks high on the list. I’m so grateful for these two gracious ladies and their team, and all their suggestions, encouragement, and boundless enthusiasm!

I’m grateful for you, too. Thank you for taking the time during this busy holiday season to stop by and look around. I’d love it if you’d leave a comment and let me know you were here. The welcome mat is always out for you, so don’t be a stranger. Stop by often and see what’s new!

Wishing you and yours a joyous Thanksgiving!

    Carol, your new website is truly amazing. I will be returning often. There have been so many times that I have wanted to talk to you. Since my retirement from education, I have started to do some writing and somethings think I need to “Pick your brain.” I see that you have included information for those of us aspiring to be writers. I have already bookmarked it in my favorites so I can return.

    Congratulations on your new website!

    Carol, what a beautiful surprise! I “bumped” into your new web site rather accidentally on FaceBook. I love it!
