Inspired by Fandango’s Friday Flashback: September 18
Wouldn’t you like to expose your newer readers to some of your earlier posts that they might never have seen? Or remind your long term followers of posts that they might not remember? Each Friday I will publish a post I wrote on this exact date in a previous year…How about you? Why don’t you reach back into your own archives and highlight a post that you wrote on this very date in a previous year?
The following post was published September 18, 2018
This surely feels like a lifetime – not just two years – ago.
Tuesday Photo Challenge – Light and Dark
Here is my entry for this week’s challenge hosted by “Dutch goes the Photo”
The theme this week is “Light and Dark”
A few years ago…for a brief 3 months, we rented a very small condo across the street from a stretch of Hampton Beach in NH.
It was a temporary home while we waited for our new condo to be finished…after downsizing from almost 37 years in a 3 bedroom house. In the interim, we stored most of our belongings and essentially moved twice. First to this rental! It was a stressful time of uncertainty, planning, paperwork, scheduling, packing, unpacking, working…oh and hosting Christmas with 3 more adults and a sweet baby.
However, this cozy oasis on the coast proved to be just that…an oasis in the midst of life’s chaos. Breakfast watching the sun rise. The stunning late afternoon light as the day ended. From dark to light and back again.
The view from any window had been more than enough to calm and restore my rattled self during that mini-chapter of life.
I took this photo the day we left.
One last look.
