Good Morning Y’all from my own personal cozy cone. This morning greeted us here in South Carolina with the most blissful chill. The air is crisp and full of endless possibilities, and I am happily sequestered in my living room in front of a raging fire, wrapped up tight in my buttery-soft pink sweater with a hot cup-a-joe. Literally my definition of paradise on earth. I think my true Libra self is most at peace in the fall. When the trees boldly start showing off their colors with no abandon, I know it is MY season. My favorite season of all.
I had vacation this month, which equated to me working a whopping 6 days, and let me tell you… RETIREMENT is for me, people. I am just kidding… sort of. I have literally had the best month and I have gone NOWHERE. My butt has stayed happily in Clinton, South Carolina for almost 17 days straight and it has been just the respite that my soul has needed. No planes. No road trips. No travel. Nada. It sounds crazy, but when you are on the go for a living you really just need time to press pause on that. To stay still instead of moving. Easier said than done when you are an antsy-pants like myself.
That being said the past 17 days have been anything but idle. I cleaned the house (surprise surprise it already needs to be cleaned again. You would think we actually live here or something *rolling my eyes for effect), hand-stitched countless, tiny leaves for a baby mobile I am making (for my COUSIN – before y’all start that gossip chain), and I painted and installed board and batten in our third bedroom, with a lot of help my family… Emphasis on the A LOT. My poor Dad probably stifles a sigh every time I send him an idea for the house because he knows that will mean he is along for the ride. Along with all that crafty goodness, I was able to get many many other things done that I have been letting simmer on my own personal back burner. So I would call that a win.
John and I have officially lived in this little house together for a year now, and I have to say it is quite the charmer. It really had the bones, to begin with, but man… have we put our own little spin on things. Every little project we do has the place feeling more like “ours.” I have been waiting patiently for the perfect time to reveal our latest project and I think we are there! So without further adieu, Ladies and Gentleman, I give you the tiny bathroom! No REALLY. The tiniest bathroom you have ever seen. This was honestly the room that gave me the most anxiety when we were thinking about buying the house because the footprint is “fun-size”. Yet somehow, they managed to fit a toilet, sink, and shower in there! The perfect trifecta!
Do you want to know the irony of it? That teensy room that I was worried about the most is now one of my favorite rooms in the house. Now let me show you “the why”.
This was the only picture we got when we went to buy the house. It makes you feel a certain kind of way, doesn’t it… claustrophobic? Maybe? Like it’s slowly closing in and we need to GET OUT before it eviscerates into nothing! Yeah? You felt that too?
There you have it. A tiny transformed bathroom that no longer feels like it might just squish into nothing. And now I must sign off. The dogs have just about had enough of my writing for today, and my house currently is nestled under a mountain of fuzz from the decapitated elephant they keep fighting over… You know. We just live here 😉
