I see so many beautiful white rooms and decor in blogland. I love the clean look and brightness but you know when it comes to crunch time (shopping) I never or rarely choose anything white for my home. Funny how we gravitate to the same colors. I tend to be drawn to the warm colors of fall and use them in decorating all year long.
Do you ever have the sense that your were born in the wrong place? I am so not a SoCal girl. I am sure I was meant to be born in New England and wear sweaters and turtlenecks. I am meant to see the change in the seasons and have a charming old home with smoke coming out of the chimney on cool nights. I have felt this way from a very young age. I doubt I will ever live in New England but I would like to move some day. Now, I am not unhappy with where I live, but I have lived within 20 miles of where I was born my whole life. So has hubby. We have hubby's family here which is a nice thing for my kids.
My husband would like to transfer eventually to a different department and we would need to re-locate but not too far from where we live now. Problem is we have a very social 13 almost 14 year old I am not going to yank from her wonderful group of friends that she has at our church. She works at the church twice a week and attends all the group activities for her age. We will have to time it very carefully and probably wait until she is done with high school. So four or five years. I am ready. I think I like to move every 10 years or so and I think I might even like a new home. I have never had a new home all brand new and clean just for us. I think my drive to take on major projects is decreasing the older I get. I just want to move in and have it be ready to live in. No major projects except landscaping. That I never tire of. How about you? Do you prefer new or old homes?
