Creating my happy life on the other side of fear.

A first glimpse inside our new house


Before I give you a tour of what the house looked like before it got attacked by boxes, I am linking a post that I wrote exactly two years ago: Chasing liquid gold. I came across it purely by coincidence (or fate?), and it gave me goosebumps. In it, I describe my dream house and life, and reading it again, on the brink of our new life, was eerie. Not everything is about to come true, but it's damn close ... This is a stunning example of making thoughts and intentions manifest. It's awesome, and a bit scary, and really, really powerful. 

Anyway, let me welcome you into our home! I took these photos on Wednesday, when I spent some time quietly greeting our new place alone, with only the dogs (and horses) as company. 

Here is a quick (and very shaky) video:



Beyond the windows is a large deck, overlooking the valley. I have a feeling it will be my primary yoga space in the warmer months, so you will get to see many pictures of it! 

Living room:

Dining area:

Hallway:


Kitchen:

Obligatory bathroom selfie:

It's small and cozy, and flooded with light. I will paint the walls, but I'm not 100% sure yet what colour: White? A light pastel? Light grey? What do you think?

Yesterday we spent all day loading up two huge flatbed trailers with rabbit cages. A friend came with his bobcat, and lifted the long rows of cages carefully up; Rich sawed off the long legs; and then they were lifted onto the trailers. Today we will unload them in reverse order, set them up on saw horses, and then repeat the process tomorrow. I had a great time watching the guys do their thing; nothing makes them happier than playing with power tools. 


More to come soon!

    1. It was such a crazy moment when I found that post from 2 years ago, and see where we are now. It showed me that we don't have to know how to reach our goals - just take one step at a time, keep visualizing what we want, and trust in the process.

  6. It all looks lovely Miriam! Why not have a look at white paints that have a slight yellow-ness to them. That way you could be surrounded by liquid gold all the time :) Whatever you choose, congrats on being brave enough to chase your dreams.
