I’ve never thought of myself as a very transient person being that I always lived within minutes from family and close friends. Always in the Philadelphia area. And let’s face it, this last move to Cape May is still pretty much within the Philadelphia metro area…only a mere two hours away. Still practically a Philadelphia suburb if you ask me. People here are Phillies fans. And Eagles fans. It is definitely still like home in that regard.
However, this is the first time in my life I’ve ever moved out of Pennsylvania. I’m faced with learning New Jersey laws and regulations. Most of which are much lighter and easier than Pennsylvania’s.
It has occurred to me that I have lived in five homes in the last 10 years. Five! I must be more transient than I thought with that many addresses under my belt. This is my first official New Jersey home.
With each move, comes decorating and redecorating. Especially around the holidays.
Questions arise like where will the Christmas tree go?
Where will the stockings be hung?
Will Santa know where to find us?
And with each move, comes new traditions.
A new sense of “home”.
Happy holidays, friends!
