Appreciation Without Regret

My sister, mother, and I gathered at my sister-in-law's house.

She bought an old house in a small town. Currently, a weekend place. In future, something more permanent.

Her projects thus far have included painting, weeding and planting, clearing an outbuilding and repurposing it as a "wine barn," constructing a deck, and furnishing the place.

It felt nice to thoroughly appreciate the beauty and comfort of her place, without any regret that I'd released mine.

Too bad I didn't take any photos of her new. So in remembrance, I'll substitute photos of my old.
