We have lived in our house for nearly 23 years.
When we moved in, I loved that wallpaper with the little country pattern, rust on cream.
What was I thinking?
Who on earth was I?
I was a lawyer, with twins on the way (I didn't know that there were two when we moved in on the coldest day of at least the decade) and plans for the perfect suburban life.
Needless to say, that life did not exactly materialize.
And so now I want bold color, I want the ocean, I want a background for photographs of Iona and Chartres.
We haven't unearthed the chairs and dishes yet. But we'll find them today.
