The final 5 days have been surreal and fantastic. I landed in Florida on Tuesday and for those who’ve been following my tales on Instagram you possibly can see that we had been kicked off with transforming initiatives beginning with the electrician who eliminated the ghastly fluorescent monster lights I discussed right here. The tiler is beginning the toilet ground subsequent week, a neighborhood landscaper helps me carry my Palm Springs-meets-coastal vibe to our plant beds, and the plumber known as in for not one however two lavatory remodels. It is nice. The solely factor that delays us by a couple of days is the arrival of the supplies.
In the meantime, I’m promoting the furnishings that got here with the home piece by piece so I can substitute it with items that go well with my model. I’ve already found essentially the most unimaginable supply for classic finds (see my stories for the hyperlink) and I’ll slowly redecorate the primary residing areas and bedrooms in a “mid-century meets coastal with a contact of retro” seaside home model. The better part is that I’m residing right here in an older one story home in a totally completely different state, residing at a a lot slower tempo, all of the vegetation, driving unfamiliar roads, adjusting to the brand new neighborhood and local weather, and each minute get pleasure from. Everyone I’ve met is so pleasant, so relaxed, so good.
It’s not usually in life that we’re pushed into a totally completely different atmosphere, it solely occurs a couple of instances. I can solely consider two from my previous, my first week in faculty and my first month with my new child daughter. How dramatically life modified in a second and right here I’m reliving that have. It’s so completely different, it is so attention-grabbing and it is extremely thrilling.
More reflections will comply with as this journey continues.
