Color My World

Diagram.

All I can think about is paint colors these days. Well, that’s not completely true (see above diagram), but my daydreaming has been overtaken by shades of gray, aqua, teal, greige, dun, mist and sunny yellow.

All for my new home.

My new home! My new home! I feel like I was trying to get pregnant…. I announced twice that I had bought a house… only to lose both of those houses. (And one of those houses I actually lost two times, but let’s not get into that, shall we?) So I kept this house a bit of a secret, but now I feel like it’s (almost) safe enough to shout it to the hills.

Of course, it’s gorgeous. I’m head over heels. Three acres of land. Hundreds of trees. HUNDREDS OF TREES. I can’t believe I will finally live at last the way I was meant to: surrounded by trees and plants and gardens and space and closets and…..

I’m just thrilled.

And it is so, so nice to feel that I am, finally, finding my way home.

About stacy

I am a writer, author, mother, former magazine editor (last at Redbook), optimist, and, above all, a searcher. I'm still searching for whom I'm really meant to be, after a series of very jarring losses: a divorce and house disaster that led to a book (Falling Apart In One Piece); a week after the book came out, my parents suddenly fell gravely ill, I resigned from my job (and, apparently, my career), my son went into crisis, my parents then rapidly died four weeks apart, and my boyfriend (who had moved in with me and my son just weeks before the book came out) began the painful journey of realizing we couldn't make our relationship work (that story unfolded on this blog). Since then I've been trying to figure out what's next. Or, in other words, how to fill in the blanks.

    So happy for you! I remember when my brain looked liked that. (Actually, it still does much of the time.) It was so nice to have it filled with the happy, productive thoughts. Hope you thoroughly enjoy making this best house all yours.

    Congratulations! This has been a long journey for you and I am glad to see it finally coming to a close (this part of it, anyway). Enjoy the lightness and levity of paint colors. You deserve that.
