Goodbye and Hello

The Brown Bungalow

The Brown Bungalow went on the market early last week and sold almost immediately to the first interested buyer at full price. Others came through our home in the days that followed, but by Friday morning all was settled and we had one more confirmation that this is the direction we are to take.

Truthfully, I never thought I'd see the day when we would trade our views of the Rocky Mountains for the Atlantic Ocean, St. Johns River, and architectural eye candy such as this bridge. (isn't it stunning?!

We have been immersed with getting ready for the move, which for the most part has been fun.  The goodbyes are hard, but if people or places mean something to us, it's supposed to be that way.

We won't be leaving the Rocky Mountain West for a few more weeks, but I have decided to go ahead with changes to this blog to reflect our new locale. It will be a solid two weeks between the day we leave The Brown Bungalow for good and the day our household things are delivered to Magnolia Place. 

As we travel and live out of suitcases, I may not have the time nor the Internet connections to play around with blog design, so I'm doing it now.

I have designed the new header (with the help of clip art), dreaming up a descriptive title (the Internet address remains the same) to reflect the ambiance of the deep South we expect to find with our new home. It will show up tomorrow, so I'm preparing you now for what you will see.

Please continue to come by for visits! I'll be chronicling the transition as we empty out The Brown Bungalow and  slip into this new adventure. If you have been subscribed via email, you will continue to get notifications of new posts.

Wear your flip flops with a cute pedicure. We'll share some [virtual] sweet tea out on the lanai, in full view of a mature Magnolia tree.
