We emptied the last plastic bin the other day, and with that final gesture of unpacking (10 months later), the feeling of being home finally and truly sunk in.

So we invited the family my husband has known since his childhood for a little housewarming combined with a celebration of two birthdays. And all at once, the apartment we moved into - our physical address, our dwelling place, where we keep our things - unfolded into the space where deep lasting memories are created and we could at last comfortably call home...

  11. Reading this post brightened my day, Catherine, as I was feeling very down about all the boxes and contqiners we just moved into our apt this week. This move is downsizing from a 2-story, 100 year old Victorian home to a single floor 2 BR apt and my mistake was thinking everything had to be in place ASAP. Reading that after 10 months you finally feel home lifted my spirits as I know your gathering did for yours.

    1. Oh Beatrice, I know the overwhelming feeling of seeing all those boxes piled up and the urge to want everything to instantly be in place so you can exhale and be settled... transitions can be difficult, but in time it will all fall nicely into place :) For some, it takes 3+ years to truly move in (see Katrin above for example). Work at your own pace and enjoy your lovely new space... xo
