Changes, Moves and Such...

If nothing ever changed, there'd be no butterflies...
Brutus' first home with us
Never too old, never too bad, never too late, never too sick to start from scratch once again...

Like I have mentioned time and times before,among the many things Arvid and I have in common, one of them is moving.  Yes, being constantly on the go, and this is not only in our daily lives.  This includes moving and changing homes quite frequently.

In the twelve years we have been together we have moved six times, and this is just Florida.  Of course after each move we always say, "this is the last one."  Seems like we get tired of one place and wish to experiment with something else.

I admit to not having a problem with this, that is until now.  This time we have moved again to a condo and we gutted out the entire unit.  Same as we did with our previous home.  Moved again we did.

It took us quite a few months to complete the work in the condo due to all the rules and regulations involved.  The house was easy.  Within a few weeks and it was done.  The condo process took much longer... months, but now we have been living here close to five months and loving it.  Condo lifestyle is definitely for us.  We missed it, but the experience of living in the house was also good.  It's just not for us.

condo living again:)
home right now

I have learnt that no matter where we
go where we live we are always happy.
 When we are in our condo in Chicago 

time flies by so fast.  We are also there constantly on the move and always in an out.  Neither of us can stay still for long.  Not sure if this is always good, but for now it's quite a lot of fun.

Whenever we were in our Lil' Red House in Eleuthera we loved it.  It was peaceful, quiet and so very relaxing.  Nothing like waking up to the sound of the waves.

What makes each place so special is that we have been lucky to always have Brutus with us.  When he's not there it's not the same and all I do is count the days until we are with him again.

I think Arvid and I know how to make the most of whatever life throws our way.  That's what makes us always have a good time, and to look at each move as a challenge, and as a time to experience something new and different.

For now this condo is home and if I have my way it will remain so.  No more moves.

Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore...
