My Home Story
This past week Pete has been traveling. He was in Europe for 8 days. We did not talk very much and e-mail were far and few between. I was not dreading this week at all. I was so excited for him to go to Europe. I was looking forward to the week with just me and my kids. I knew this week would be a different sort of story for the both of us.
On the first night of him not being here my mom and I rearranged the ENTIRE downstairs. We moved furniture, swapped carpets, switched rooms. It was so fun. Pete has no idea. EVERYTHING looks different.
Making a new house your own takes some time and patience. Things from the "old" house are still with us but they need to be used in a different way in the "new" house. It takes some sorting. And this week I SORTED and SORTED!! I loved every minute of it. Changing one thing leads to changing another and before you know it EVERYTHING feels new and exciting.
A FULL update will be posted as soon as he sees it. I have been DYING to takes pictures ALL week but I knew he would probably check the blog if he could and I did not want to ruin anything...but just imagine a little bit of color mixed up!!
My story is very much linked to my home and by making a few changes the story feels fresh and exciting...
