Maybe It's Time

Maybe it's time to stop sitting by idly wishing and dreaming for a better way of life. Do you daydream during your current realities of a far of place that you wish to be so present you can taste it and feel it in your bones? Then the planes roar overhead, the sirens scream by, and the dogs bark at the stranger strolling down your street....snap back into reality. There is plenty of talks whispered in the night while lying in bed of formulating a plot to get us out of the ghetto and into the next chapter of our life. The older we get the chapters seem to flow into the next more rapidly.

The time is now. Casa Sol y Luna has been our humble homestead for 9 years now and has been infused with blood, sweat, and a down pour of tears. Hopefully the next residents will feel the love that has turned a house into a home. This Gypsy is hitting the road with her tribe to stake our claim in the country. Maybe it's time to stop letting fear of the unknown overide the mystery of the journey that lies ahead.

Now at this time this can be viewed as a mission statement for we are at the very beginning of the transition that is to come. I haven't been visiting blogs and such because Iv'e been de-cluttering the house and yard. I'm letting go of what no longer serves us and will not benefit us to have in our new home. The next step is getting an appraisal to see what we can sell our home for. Where exactly the next homestead will be is unknown, but I'm hoping for a Farmhouse in Texas! Wish us luck y'all that this California dreamer turns far off thoughts into reality.


  1. Oh Holly, this is wonderful news. Yes, I've often dreamed about living in the country, and there are a lot of country towns here in our California. I've always wanted to visit Texas, and I have a few Texas blog friends who have so much energy - it seems they never tire haha! Whatever place you decide, all will be good, as you are the shining light that holds your family together. Keep dreaming, and you will get there, and enjoy the journey along the way.

    love, ~Sheri

  2. Best of luck to you and yours, my sweetest Holly. I hope you can sell your current house soon and with little problems. And I wish, I wish, I wish... your next home is just perfect!

  3. Good going girl! I am so proud of you! You have inspired me! I am sending you positive vibes to sell your home quickly and to find a new one quickly! A home that you and your family truly love! Big Hugs!

    To the adventure!

  5. Oh I am so happy and excited for you and your family! Sometimes a change in scenery is just what people need to begin anew. I really hope that your new home is wonderful and full of happy and new experiences. I was born and raised in Kansas and have been blessed enough to be able to travel and see places like Oklahoma and Texas. I loved traveling the plains and miss the wide open spaces and thunderstorms. While I don't miss the tornadoes, the Midwest has a lot of treats and new experiences with plenty to explore and see. *hugs* Best of luck selling your home and starting this new adventure! I can't wait to see what you share with us along the way!

  6. It's wonderful to get Fresh Starts and begin with a Blank Canvas that you can re-create your Wildest Dreams and Imaginings upon. May your transition go smoothly. Having made the transition ourselves 2.5 years ago I do know the challenges and also the joys and excitement a change in scenery can bring, re-energizing your Vision for the Future.
