“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” —Anaïs Nin
This week our Rose of Sharon and our Black-eyed Susan started to bud & bloom. I was supposed to be off adventuring this weekend, but when I looked around and realized how much there was to be done, I decided to stay home & clean & decorate & make this house a home. Matthew & I moved into our “fixer-upper” home 3.5 years ago and this summer we’ve finally finished construction. For me this means that I finally get to decorate. It’s overwhelming and incredible all at once.
The ongoing construction of our home for the past several years has put so many things on hold. Like—decorating, getting married, and starting family. Now that we are moving forward, that little list of ours is getting shorter & shorter. Even though it’s still a little overwhelming, we keep moving forward & forward. I am always reminded that life is never simple or easy, really, but it’s always so wonderful. One day at a time, one foot in front of the other.
