I continue to enjoy dreaming about simple structures to live in some day. It’s not that I don’t love my home (because I love it very much), but I’m foreseeing a down-sizing when our kids are out of the house. It’s fun to fantasize.
Sunset magazine does it again.
I love, love, love this house. The husband in the Texas couple who built it said he wanted a house he could clean with a leaf blower (!). I was smitten. It’s perfect in every way and if I could build it tomorrow, I would.

I love this video about a couple who created their dream home when they were ready to retire:
Teaching my 3rd graders is kicking my arse…in a good way. SO MUCH TO PREPARE for them and I fall asleep on the couch every night. PH found my cell phone in between the cushions the other day. ‘Never would have found it. Unfortunately, when the stress/workload level is amped up, my flighty-ness increases as well. Not a good combo.
I will say this: I am incredibly happy with my decision to go back to teaching.
Even on my hardest day, I know that I made a difference. And that, dear lovelies, is the best way I could use my life…of this, I’m sure.
I’m itching to get two seconds to write down my feelings and thoughts on this amazing journey…it might be when I can take a breath…but I think it’s important to document this transition and what it feels like.
Happy week–hope all is well with you as we venture into the fall~
