I have an infinity for thrifting for a few different reasons. First of course, I love scoring that perfect vintage piece that sends my heart skipping a beat. Second, this is how I make money selling those hard to let go of pieces and third while not the intention, something happened...I find that when I thrift it's the only time I allow my mind to wander and think about life. Strange as that may seem or not really. I suppose it would happen if I regular shopped too.
I guess I find it so relaxing that I think a lot about my kids, my husband and the upcoming events of their lives and the milestones already achieved.
I think i'm at the crossroads of many different things and emotions. If I could I would start over from the very beginning and raise my children again. They were such wonderful kids and I really enjoyed their childhoods. It's funny because like most moms I remember thinking I can't wait for this stage to pass etc...and I truly MISS them being younger.
That is the time when they are all yours! before the school years! when they are cocooned into your world and only your world. It's a special time, one I miss.
I am also excited for their verging adult lives...excited for them. But truth be told I MISS them! I remember when it was all FOUR getting their picture taken in front of the pumpkin patch...and now it's down to two :( both the older boys moving on with their lives and having their own adventures.
