In which I bid, Adieu.

I have enjoyed this space to blog so much over the past three years.

It served as a great place to share when I got pregnant and was living in Austin, it was a diary of our tales as we moved to the Bay Area, and is an on-line baby book for our baby boy, Holden. 

This blog is home to many a Barkley stories and because of this, he will have his own book one day.  

It has been both cathartic and a space in which I can share with my friends and family that I don’t see that often.

This chapter is finally closing though and my blog is coming to an end.

Feel free and follow our tales via instagram - (curlytalky)

Thank you for all of the support and love.

We have been looking for our dream home for months and months.

Every single time we find a contender we are either outbid by all cash or multiple offers.  It has been a real learning curve for us.

But….two weeks ago we found our dream house….and we wrote a letter we felt so strongly about it…..

You see, we had already drawn our dream home and put it into the universe, so we included the photo and sent a letter along to the sellers…  It began with, “Howdy.”

And the sellers…..well, evidently they are Texans.  When our letter came, they put all six offers aside and chose ours.

And so, there you have it.  A full circle story of a move across the country, a baby boy brought into the world, and now our first home.

This completes the cycle (for now) my friends.

Cute DIY Idea! Use Old Play-Doh Lids to Make Colorful Bird FeedersWhat to do with non-recyclable lids after your kid’s Play-Doh turns hard and brown? Schmear ‘em with peanut butter, sprinkle on seeds and — voila! — instant bird feeders.You could also use lids from other containers if you don’t have kids ;)
