dreams, manifesting

Well friends, it looks like our long held dream of moving to our beloved bit-of-earth in Vermont full-time is finally really happening. 

Life has been full of negotiation, an inspection, an appraisal, getting quotes, have minor work done, signing a contract and packing. Everything is looking good for a successful closing in a few weeks, and we are moving forward with our transition.

Our dirt road in Vermont is "posted" during Vermont's infamous mud season, limiting the size and weight of vehicular traffic. Rather than bring one big truck up the road, we are making the move in several smaller trucks. This weekend it was books, all the contents of my sewing studio, some furniture and other smaller items. We will do a few more trips with our two vehicles, then get some help with the bigger, heavier furniture at the end.

Pinch me someone. I can barely believe that after all these years of working-planning-hoping-dreaming that this is all really happening.

Dear readers, sometimes dreams really do come true. :-)  


  1. Congratulations, Karen and Batman! I am so happy for you. We'll be driving around up that way later this summer and will wave as we go by.

  2. Oh Karen, I am so happy for you!! Congratulations and may your life in Vermont be what you have been dreaming of and wishing and working for.
