Today a new sun rises for me; everything lives, everything is animated, everything seems to speak to me of my passion, everything invites me to cherish it. (Anne De Lenclos)

Look at the beauty going on in our garden! I finally managed to use up most of my fabric stash by making 11 meters of bunting to hang in the garden. Check out this group for inspiration. This has been the most beautiful spring with sunshine and warm showers and the garden is growing at great speed compared to previous years. I am looking forward to a harvest of strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, rasberries, zuchini, potatoes, tomatoes and runner beans, all pictured above.
I want to thank everyone for the encouraging comments on my last post. The house is definately going to be sold. Erich and I cannot afford to pay my husband his half of the house and he is at the end of the line with our bank so the house will soon be up for sale. The good news is that it may take quite a while for him to find a buyer so we have time to look for a rental home, we have managed to break the news to the children and they are ready for anything that may happen. I can then walk away finally divorced and with a little money to start new. I have overcome my first shock and now I´m looking forward to seeing what challenges the future holds.

I know it must be weird to have a stranger tell you it's gonna be ok, but it is. You'll be so much better in the end starting over, I swear, I've done it. Leave that ass behind and embrace your new life, just think, a whole new house to discover. And remember, Kids are rubber, they just bounce and bounce until they roll. I'll be praying for you!

Remember when you sent me your beautiful handmade pillow when I was going through my divorce? If there is anything at all I can do to make this time the least bit easier will you PLEASE let me know???? And remember that absolutely EVERYthing that is amazing and essential and magnificent about that house is going with you. A move brings along a whole new chapter and while I have too grown to really love all the photos and stories of where you live, I know that because of WHO you are your next place is going to be made fabulous and extraordinary as well. How could it not Claudia? Sending you enormous, warm, nourishing hugs.
