This happened this week. I prefer animal trophies of the man made variety. I'm not sure why I couldn't be like a normal person and just hang it on the wall. I'm not sure why I felt the need to take a month to hunt down the perfect oval frame, take 2 days painting layers of blue and teal and back it with fabric to match. I do know that I'm glad I have a husband that not only gets me, but encourages me and then loves the results. How did I get so lucky?
Our house isn't quite like anyone else's and I love that! I love that our home expresses the people that live here, that it is filled with color, creativity and happiness and that you know it as soon as you walk in.
There is something about this house and this season of life that makes me feel free to follow my heart and I continue to be amazed at how the results make my heart happy. I find that in the last few years I have really learned to trust my instincts and to not make decisions based on what other people think. It has changed every aspect of my life, even allowing me to do crazy home projects that will have people questioning my sanity.
