Changes

 This post has been sitting in my draft folder for quite awhile.


Blogging lately has taken a back seat to some huge life changes for me.

I normally don't get super personal here, but I am starting a new life. A marriage is ending and I have left a house that I have lived in for 27 years..  I am excited, sad, nervous....my emotions are all over the place, but mostly I am very happy.


Happy Little Cottage is now Happy Little Condo. I have moved to the cutest condo on the planet and am now roommates with my sweet daughter :)  We are having a wonderful time making our new house a home sweet home. It is definititely the house of creativity!! We both have been instagramming pictures of our new adventure in decorating.


I have been super busy catching up orders with my etsy shop and am anxious to get back to some personal sewing. I have made pillow covers and a bunting banner for our new space, and painting is about to begin.

I hope to be back to blogging on a more regular basis soon in between my "big girl" office job, etsy shop and POOL (we have a pool!!!!!)
