Since our actual moving date jumped from a wishy-washy “hopefully sometime in May” to “by the end of this month” in an instant, my brain has had little time to catch up. We’ve been dreaming about moving back to California for so long, that the reality of it happening so quickly hasn’t really sunk in very well. So I decided that a new Pinterest board might be in order: Our Someday Home Makeover! Envisioning us in our space and imagining all the ways that we will make it our own has done the trick. It actually feels real! We are really moving! Hooray!
Anyhow, the house my daughter and I will be renting is the very same one that we used to live in (I used to co-own it with my parents). Since it’s a white geodesic dome (yes, you read that right), it looks far more like an igloo than a traditional house. Truth be told, on the outside it’s a bit on the fugly side, but the inside (while surely in need of love) is great! The thing I recall most fondly from living there years ago is the amazing light that fills the main living area and the incredible views out the back. The sunsets we get fill the living room with a colorful glow that can’t be beat! Sigh!
Unfortunately since I have exactly zero expendable income at the moment (especially after taxes, ouch), at the moment these pins are merely to dream about and be inspired by. They are giving me a clear goal though, and now I can’t wait to save my pennies and fix up our place little by little as time goes on. I can’t wait to share the process with you too. Please just promise to be understanding (I’m not an interior designer by any means), forgiving (our house will be humble and not at all glamorous…especially starting out), and helpful if you’d like (I can use all the tips and advice that I can get). I will appreciate it so much! Here’s to dreaming…and someday (soon) doing! xo Ez
