Five years ago today — October 14, 2010, I left my closing with this key.
Now, don’t worry. I’m not going to go all English teacher on you and begin discussing symbolism. We all know about the many meanings of keys.
Today is for celebrating here at Home Sweet Abbey. And today is for appreciating the many blessings that have come with my new home and community. Some of them were anticipated; many were delightful surprises. One thing, at least, is even more true than today than it was five years ago. I am never moving again.
So thank you to everyone who made my purchase and move possible, and to everyone who contributes to my happiness here.
Time to make a wish and blow out the candle. Mmmmmm. Can’t beat a Panera pumpkin muffin.
