Sneak Peek

Sometimes we just need a break. Like the kind of break that can distract us or take our minds off of deeper life things for a little while. At least that's how I feel. I can only sit with things for so long and then I need to get off my butt and just do something else for a while. I felt that way somewhat yesterday. I worked from home, had coffee with my friend Paula and played with Tommy. And during his nap time I worked on some of my decorating projects around the house.

I also had dinner with my sister and ended the day by watching a very good movie with Todd. Yesterday was just an over all good day. And not just because I got to decorate.

I must say, it's quite hard to redecorate when I have to do it in very small hour and a half spurts of time. Between work and then being home with Tommy, all of my decorating projects are taking a major back seat and my house continues to remain in utter chaos. It's driving me nuts, but I'm managing better with it than I thought that I would.

However, I did get the dining room completed yesterday. Well, almost. Still a little tweaking to do here and there. I seriously stood in there for like ten minutes yesterday and just took it all in. I'm in love with how it looks and I'm kind of not missing my Texas theme at all.

And just a tiny little peek because I am all about doing a major before and after post on this whole thing.....All of this sprucing up and refinishing things around my house feels good for my soul right now. It's hard to explain. But I know that I feel the same way when I'm the kitchen preparing a meal from scratch. Something about watching things that I have envisioned become a physical reality feels like it's satisfying and feeding a very deep place inside of me.

Today, I am curious about why or how cooking and working on projects for my home, make me feel satisfied and fed in such a deep way.


  1. I want to see! The waiting is excruciating! Ok maybe not that bad, but I do want to see! :)

  2. I can't wait for your pictures!!

  3. Can't wait to see and let me know when you figure out why that is so satisfying...I feel the same...
