Dominos Fall

April 16th

Friday, I got the sign off on a good job in Colorado. This meant happy hour at our favorite local haunt — Four Peaks.

Saturday, I met the future tenants on my little home. I’m tiding up a few pieces of my life in Arizona that have remained gray far too long.  As the dominos fall, I skip, smile and then quietly cry when I can get a moment alone. As my friend Candace said, it’s a bittersweet time.

Two short weeks left in this home, that I’ve had for 8 years, and this town, that I’ve had for 31. Holy Moses.

    Oh Kelli That’s fantastic!! What a relief! Best wishes on your move-bittersweet time that it is for you. You will soon be at home and comfortable once again!

  9. Really really proud of you, Donk. There’s so much to do and prepare, which is why I think most people would just avoid it and stay put. But not you – you’re forging ahead and figuring things out as you go. This is how great things happen.

  10. Congrats on landing the job in Colorado. What will you be doing?

  11. Congrats, Kelli! You obviously wowed them, understandably. I feel sad you’re leaving even though I barely know you…except through your blog, of course, but I’m excited for your new adventure, too, and hope you will continue to faithfully blog about your life.
