100th post! also know as "Update on the Whirling"

I've thought about my 100th blog post a fair bit over the last few months. I guessed that it would come during my time Unravelling and I would be all super creatively inspired and have a whole shwack of photos to pretty it up with.

However, seeing as the level of holy-smokes.intense has been pretty high around here, I have decided to save that particular post for my 200th (oh dear...that has the tone of commitment...) not to mention the fact that I am 3 weeks into Unraveling and have yet to actually unravel...or maybe its just been a different kind of unravelling??...hmmm....


the update, which I know is why ya'll are here:

we are moving. its official.

hubby's work situation here was a bust and...blessed be...we have connected with new employment in a place we have both always wanted to live.

kind of overwhelming?
not so much now, but last week? YES!!!

This week I am settling into the notion.

I am actually believing that it will happen.

I am trusting and faithful as the doors and windows seemingly fly open.

This is spring.

this is freshness.

new beginnings and the whole shebang.

heck, there is even romance! (did I mention that Adam and I both felt called there before we met!?!)

In that beautiful creative little town high in the mountains there is music...there is culture...there are loads of trees and tones of folks hugging them! (this is me admitting my inner hippie..yes, its true!) But best of all? a fabulous combination of forest...hiking/mountian biking/kayaking/wild romping/skiing AND access to services that our growing family is needing : aquatic center/dance classes/music/choir/green community initiatives/hospital/good food/skookum home school/ high school program! (because we are swiftly approaching this age)

There is a promise of settling in the air. A glimpse of something that dances away from limbo and into some good earthy, connected tribal groove. I am so ready for this. so ready to settle!

It feels like going home.

you know what? I think this time I will actually unpack!

I remember you talking about the community there before and I'm thrilled for you, though saddened that yet again you are moving even further away! But as before, mostly glad for you. Mostly. =)

This sounds positive and very, very promising (plus, I admit, without knowing all the details- dare I say heavenly?)....

Love, peace, joy and gentle whirling wishes....

What a great feeling to have things come together like this, to feel serendipity and find your feet on a path that seems meant to be! The town sounds wonderful and I do hope this change users in all that you need for your next chapter. I look forward to reading your 200th post!

Hi- New reader here, came over from Evelyn. We are midwesterners still within 100 miles of our birthplaces. We yearn to move. Somewhere like where you described. Except that I have no idea where that is. We are constantly doing research and thinking ahead... any chance you'll privately share this special place to a stranger? So I'm not so strange, here's my blog:

Nice to meet you-
