Happy thought, indeed!

Happy things are afoot. We have found a home....a big home! For the last two years we have lived in tiny apartments--first in New York and now hear in Vancouver. Sharing one bathroom and three bedrooms among six people does wear thin after a while. Now we are going to have 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 kitchens (something the big two are very excited about) a HUGE deck and a fenced yard....there is even a great stretch of pavement that is just begging for a game of street hockey! The best part is we will finally have a place to entertain. All of our friends and parishoners have been incredibly sweet and kind and have braved the squishyness of our little condo for many a meal. But now, watch out! My inner hostess will be unleashed in this new house where there will actually be room to breath and talk and eat and drink! O happy day.
Oh and a piece of chocolate ganache cheese cake for the person who can give the the reference for the title of this post.

Is it from Pride and Prejudice... when do you get to move?

MommaKim said...

Yes Ramona, it is from Pride and Prejudice. Elisabeth says this to Mr. Colins when he shows her the shelves in the closet.
We can move anytime after August 4th. I start holidays on August 2nd....I think we may actually move around the 10th. Now for the packing!
