We've been cleaning, organizing and finishing random projects since we realized we were moving. Doing this--readying the house for sale--makes me notice little things about our space. The kitchen isn't perfect, isn't what we thought it would look like when we sold this house. But it's not too bad, and it's so.much.better. than when we purchased it. It's clean, painted and working properly. It's light and bright and smells faintly of recent cooking ventures--juneberry muffins, pasta and tomato sauce, pumpkin oatmeal.
It's home. For now.
