First, thank you to all who took the time to comment or send messages about the last post Bittersweet. It was reassuring to know that many of you have experienced similar feelings and then moved on to enjoy the next chapter in your life. That will happen for me in time.
So, what is the next step? For some years we’ve considered the options to maintaining a home that has gotten too large for us and that we live in only half the year. There are wonderful condos, apartments, townhomes in Houston that would allow us to downsize and leave without worry. We looked at many, but none seemed quite right which always gave me a sigh of relief.
Then, last year we heard about a new development not too far from where we are currently and convenient to restaurants, grocery and shopping. We were looking to live different and the invitation to do just that was appealing as was the attention being given to combining art and architecture which was key in designing our current home. Too, the hubby and I are drawn to innovative Italian design, so it seemed all the pieces had come together to inspire us to make a move.
Now under construction, we go by every week to take note of the progress. It has gone from this
and now this when I can see our unit on the sixth floor taking shape. It’s quite exciting when I spot workmen inside or on the scaffolding indicating there is real progress.
On the exterior, brick is being put on
and floor by floor windows are going in.
Slowly but surely the building is becoming a reality, and I can’t wait until time to walk through what will be our eventual residence. In the meantime, my head is swirling with paint colors, fabric, furniture choices and all that goes with creating a new home. That part makes thoughts of leaving the one that is so much a part of me less painful.
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
