- Less is more (so, so, so much more). I don't regret selling one item, I do regret not doing it sooner. Don't get me wrong, there are things I don't want to part with that I really cherish. Overall, less stuff has really helped me clear my mind.
- Kids don't need a ton of crap either. We are down to a suitcase of books and games, and guess what, the kids don't miss anything (at least not yet).
- Don't take on too many projects at once. Did that, and it only ended in a half done house and unnecessary stress. Moving forward we will tackle what we can, hire out what we can't do in a reasonable time, and don't be too idealistic about the perfect space. A finished space is WAY better than the coolest finish.
We have secured a rental in the Chevy Chase neighborhood of DC, and we are thrilled that we are renting. We had a fantastic weekend that included one of the best weddings I've ever been to, and a fun going away party. Thanks friends for making us feel loved!
