This past weekend I decided her room had to be painted. It was a saffron orange and I have been trying to neutralize the colors in our house, going to a white and gray palette. I put everything back in it's place, then I got this photo and went back to her room and boxed up all the trophies, all the stuffed animals, all the posters on the walls. Her room is now a peaceful "cottage linen" and a very zen space, appropriate for the adult she is way too quickly becoming.
Transitions are hard, but they are necessary for growth and enrichment of our lives. I'm excited for this new journey I see my child on and I feel like I am beginning a new journey as well. More time for finding what I want to do with that space that was filled with lunches and homework and class projects. I'm so glad clay has been there to fill some of the empty space she has left. There are so many new journeys ahead! Those of you with younger kids at home, don't blink, I'm telling you.....
I'm heading down to unload the kiln, I'll be back. Let's hope the houses didn't all kill themselves, they are meant for people so there is great potential that they did something evil :)
