We've been here two weeks.
My world lately has been learning the light switches.
How to install a dishwasher.
Generally just settling in, one box,
one curtain rod, one towel bar at a time.
These images aren't new to those of you
who saw my facebook post, but for others . . .
welcome to my home-in-the-making.
We've gotten appliances since I took this photo.
The kitchen opens up to what was once the covered back porch,
and is now a drop down dining room.
I love all the light here.
It's surreal, waking up inside these walls each morning.
Even my unrelenting husband yields to the fact that,
surely, there must have been some sort of
divine assistance with all this.
As of now,
we close on our old house in three weeks,
and without any overlap in mortgage payments.
The chaotic and scattered pieces of this puzzle
are so far falling neatly
together, and with impeccable timing.
I don't know exactly What is out there in the morning light,
or why it seems to like me,
but I smile and nod a quiet "thank you"
because I'm not sure we could have ever made it here
on our own.
