I’ve always loved it when people do house tours – I love being able to suss out aspects of a person’s personality by seeing fragments of their home, and, logistically speaking it’s waaaay easier than skulking around at night peering in windows.
(Not that I do that.)
I’ve meant to do this since we moved into this little place, and each time I was ready to do it I would grab my camera (by which I mean my phone) and then it would be like, “Oh! My floor is covered in blueberries! Fantastic!”
But over the span of a week I managed to cobble together enough photos that you can get a sense of this space…Behold! Our home, in bits and pieces. These are the views that make me smile.
And there you have it! Poor quality phone photos of Maison Madeleine!
When we first moved in here in early April, I was apprehensive. I was nervous about this huge decision I was making for Olive and I and worried it wouldn’t be the right one, for many different reasons. But it was right. Being here has been incredibly healing. My sister Lizzie and her fiance Eric rent the other half of the house and having her a shout away has been so helpful – it’s like training wheels for being on my own.
I feel incredibly lucky to be here, both literally and metaphorically. It’s amazing how much can change in just a few months.
