The not-so-timid mover…

Yes, I took my house off the market in May, but after a few weeks of reflection, I listed it again 6 weeks ago. And it’s sold!

I’ll be moving to Orlando the end of August, and my predominant feelings are great calm and grateful peace. I really do want to be nearer to my family.

I thought I’d share a few pics of my favorite places in this lovely house in which I’ve lived for twenty years.

Of course, all this quiet space will be upside down in the next few weeks. I have wonderful movers, All My Sons, who also move the Miami Dolphins, Univ. Florida Gators, and the Univ. Miami Hurricanes. My kids are Gators (law school and undergrad), and given my investment, so am I. And a little aside, I have my paralegal certification from the University of Miami School of Continuing Education and International Studies. In the financial downturn of 2008, I just thought I needed a backup 🙂

Feeling blessed – Coco

  3. Your home is lovely but I’m sure you will make any place you live beautiful as well.

    I am actually relieved you decided to move closer to family. As I get older, I am so glad my family is nearby as I will inevitably need help. It will be easier for them as well as for you to cope with whatever time brings.

    I look forward to seeing where your new adventure takes you!

  11. So smart of you to wait until you were really ready before listing your beautiful, serene home again.

    If we could only move without doing the moving! Like in Bewitched where Samantha wiggles her nose and presto-change-o everything is put away in its new location.
