The final 5 days have been surreal and fantastic. I landed in Florida on Tuesday and in the event you’ve been following my Tales on Instagram you possibly can see we hit the bottom working with reworking initiatives, beginning with the electrician eradicating the ghastly florescent monster lights I discussed here. The tile contractor begins on the lavatory ground subsequent week, an area landscaper helps me deliver my “Palm Springs meets coastal” vibe to our planting beds, and the plumber is all dialed in for not one however two rest room remodels. It’s superior. The one factor slowing us down by a number of days is the arrival of supplies.
In the meantime I’m promoting off one piece at a time the furnishings that got here with the home so I can change it with items that match my model. Already I’ve found probably the most unimaginable supply for classic finds (see my Stories for the hyperlink) and I’ll be slowly redecorating the principle residing areas and bedrooms with a “mid century meets coastal with a contact of retro” seaside home model. The perfect half is that I’m right here in an older single story dwelling in completely totally different state, residing at a a lot slower tempo, all of the botanicals, driving unfamiliar streets, adjusting to the brand new neighborhood and local weather, and loving each minute. Everybody I’ve met is so pleasant, so laid again, so sort.
It’s not usually in life we’re thrust into residing in a very totally different surroundings, it occurs just some occasions. I can solely consider two from my previous, my first week away in school, and my first month with my new child daughter. How dramatically life modified in a second and right here I’m residing that have once more. It’s so totally different, it’s so attention-grabbing, and it’s thrilling past phrases.
Extra reflections to come back as this journey continues.
