We put our Boulder house on the market on August 5th or so and have barely had 2 showings. Broker says bad time, vacations, back to school, etc. etc, but, I kept feeling like - Ugh! we should have skipped our Nantucket vacation the last two weeks of June/July 4 and gotten the house on the market at the beginning of July. Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda. I was feeling pretty down about it until I looked through my photos from that vacation - nope, we needed every sweet, poignant, fulfilling moment we had there.
Nantucket is stunningly beautiful and you can't help but relax in its beautiful vistas and vignettes.
I was soothed by everything around me.
We had critical fun time with Daddy - who promptly left us for his new job in Baltimore the next week. Until yesterday, we hadn't seen him for six weeks!
We had essential silly time and lots of goofing off.We ran around on the beach, went on long walks, played baseball and ate lots of ice cream.
We all got lots of Grandma love . . .
Because of the move, we had to cancel absolutely everything else about the summer–other trips, sleep-over camps, parties, camping plans with friends. I am so glad we didn't take a single moment from Nantucket away from them, or from me. We all needed it. We needed time to adapt to the idea of a new life and time to let it all go! I adored seeing all the smiles and happy faces.
