‘Change is hard at first, messy in the middle,
and gorgeous at the end.’
Truer words were never spoken. The past two years have been a challenging mess for the Weir family as we packed up and sold our first family home and moved into a rented house. We purchased our dream property in Kingston, Ontario – acres of woods teeming with lacey ferns and mossy limestone outcroppings and inhabited by timid deer and flittering blue jays. I painstakingly designed a new home perfectly suited to our needs and we worked for a year with a great builder to make it a reality. In July 2018, we finally made the big move two hours East to my husband’s home town. After eight months, we still have unpacked boxes shoved in closets and some bathrooms without mirrors on the wall, but the gorgeousness of life in the woods is slowly unfolding. Looking back, there was so much work and stress between the choice to move and where we are now but even the most momentous changes are possible when you take it day by day! And the personal growth that only comes from challenge and change is the sweetest reward.
