Personal

We bought a house in June. After moving around all my life (28 addresses at last count), I am thrilled to put down roots and have a permanent base (I still plan on as many adventures as possible). This is crazy and exciting and terrifying and amazing all wrapped up in one big, expensive package. We have professionals doing the especially skilled labor (taking down walls, putting up walls, adding a spiral staircase, stuff with electricity, plumbing, gas/oil, and 100 other things). We took on a task that took approximately 5x longer than we originally expected and though it’s nowhere near perfect, we’re pretty proud of ourselves: we painted the kitchen cabinets!

This consisted of exactly:
Countless hours
Many trips to Home Depot
A few new tools
Several choice words
Oodles of pride

We move in soon. We walk around the empty, dust-filled rooms and giggle as if we’re merely playing house. It definitely doesn’t feel like ours yet. I have Pinterest boards and a head full of ideas that have no chance of actualization.  Le sigh.

Add my new flowers (pansies, daffodils) right out my win ...
