There is a grand settling in happening in a very light-filled yellow house this morning. Dishes are being put away. Kittycats are exploring. Kittycat A is busy making sure Kittycat B knows she is still the alpha-Kittycat, even in this strange new place.
As exciting as our house purchase has been, the actual move seems to have gone on forever. We just spent night #2 here. Boxes are, for sure, everywhere. Things have been especially tricky in the I-work-from-home department. We JUST got Internet. If you have emailed me or sent me an Etsy convo in the past two weeks and haven't gotten a response, I am so sincerely sorry! I WILL respond. It is just going to take a couple of days to sift through my inboxes.
Life here is so different already.
I want to show you pictures of the whole house! But, you know...I also want things to be a little more settled first. Somebody left me a wonderful comment about waiting a bit to paint...getting to know the house so it can speak to you a while. I love that concept so much. So, while we didn't exactly wait to paint (Glass of Milk, Ground Pepper, Mushroom, and Egg Yolk...all Martha Stewart for Home Depot. And yes, I know what you're thinking, and, why yes! I did pick them because they sound like a carbonara recipe!), we're going to try and apply that concept to the rest of the house. Let it evolve, come together molasses-slow, and change a lot too. This little house has seen a lot in its 82 years. I think it could have a lot to tell us, if we listen.
P.S. We have never been happier.
