I am on a
I need a return to an
all neutral...almost completely white
Is that even a phrase?
a place where everything is in order
the silver is out...maybe slightly tarnished and
the flowers are in the vase...not perfect but pretty
soft music in the background and candles glowing
the dinner may be takeout
but it's a dinner shared with my family
I need a space where I can
clear my mind...my heart...and my soul
with warm matelasse blankets are at the ready in old french baskets
old gravy boats are lined up in a row....chips...cracks and all
throw in a few feminine touches
and lots of organization
a place where I can breathe
i'm even trying to take some of my own advice that I give to others...
see those empty shelves
I tell friends if something is bugging you in your house
take it away
live with the space for a bit...
until you find the right pieces
sometimes you just might not need to
fill a space at all.
I hope that with the start of this new year...
there will be peace and serenity
in your home and hearts as well as ours.
It may take a little bit of work
but I think we can get there!
Thank you to all our friends and family
for the kind words, cards, flowers,
support and love.
Lily was our faithful puppy for 13 years
and she will truly be missed.
God Bless you all
Happy New Year
