The countdown is on…. we depart for Fairbanks, Alaska in 14 days! As I am feeling nervous and sad and excited and something else I can’t define, I have been trying to focus on how I will make our new cabin feel like home. Here are the pictures sent to us by our new landlord.
The cabin is 16ft. x 20ft. – or as my mother likes to call it, “Sixteen by tiny.” Yes, it is tiny, but cozy. I think we can really make it feel like home. Storage will be an issue, as there don’t appear to be any closets. (But we got rid of most everything at the yard sale this weekend anyway!) I can see nice rugs on the floor, paintings on the wall, a cozy couch and comfy chair with a big coffee table that doubles as a kitchen table, and fiesta ware in the kitchen cabinets!
We are getting closer to the move and there are a LOT of things on this end that I don’t want to deal with. But I think it’s a good sign that I am imagining how our new house can feel like home. What do you think?
