Friday Firsts: A New Home For a New Start

23 Aug

“I long, as does every human being, to be at home wherever I find myself.”
Maya Angelou quotes (American Poet, b.1928)
*************
A bitter-sweet day of old memories jumbled with new beginnings. I purchased my new home today. I can’t say that I did it all by myself, because my dear friend, Linda Grossman, (world’s best realtor) held my hand through every step of the process. She is amazing!

Everything went smoothly at the closing. We stopped at Mi Cocina for lunch and had a celebratory margarita. I normally don’t drink during the day, but this was a very special occasion.

CHEERS!
Here’s to you,
Here’s to me,
Life will be great,
Just wait and see.
~Me
******************
Now, here’s a funny story. You know how I’ve been finding my lucky feathers and pennies. Well, after our celebration, we walked back to Linda’s car in the parking garage, and there on the ground was a lucky feather…inside an enclosed parking garage…waiting just for me! That’s not all. Linda was amazed and said she never finds lucky feathers. We took a few steps, and there was another feather meant for her. It was a lucky day,

Here’s the other exciting part….ta…ta…ta…da…! Drum roll please! My new house…
