garage sale update!





Happy Sunday!

Taking a smidge of quiet time this morning to give you a quick update on the garage sale we had this weekend.

There were 3 of us on Friday...big shout out to Novell & Katie for making the trek out to me.  On Saturday we added the stuff from another crafter.

We managed to make some money but really, more importantly, we got rid of some of stuff which went to great homes.

A big High Five to Kimberly who came out to shop and chat!

Even though we lucked out in weather for both days, Friday was much busier for us than Saturday.  I only do garage sales from 9 am - 1 pm because it really is thoroughly exhausting for me.  

***

Directly after the sale I picked up my boy, then a friend of the boy and the girl and we went out to the University of Washington to visit the girl in her new nest.  

There are a handful of other bloggers that are going through the same thing that I am with their kids.  

Can I tell you how proud I am?  

I'm so thankful for this awesome journey that my girl is going on.  She has worked her tail off and I just know that it will all pay off for her in so many ways.  I've been so strong about 'letting her go' but, quite frankly, as I write up this post, ugh, the water works. 


I love this girl, TONS.

  1. Oh Amy...big hugs to you. You should be so proud of your daughter's accomplishments as I know you are, but I'm right there with you. My heart would be aching as well. So glad the garage sale went well!

  2. Sounds like a good garage sale since the goal is to move stuff out.
    Ah, I bet you are missing your girl but just look what her future holds. Remember she is just a short distance away and you can visit whenever you want.

  14. Glad you had a good sale.
    Let her fly. She's still local so that should be reassuring...just a car ride away right? Love the photo of the two pretty girls! ;)

  15. Be strong, Mama, be strong! Then you can tell me how you did it in ten years when I need to go through it : ) Gorgeous photo of you two, really.

    I love going to garage sales, hate having them. I do a children's resale event twice/year and only because I can get so much $$$ for the items there. It's this weekend, actually. Hoping to get rid of a ton of stuff.
