Ode To Fall


Well, I think it's obvious how I feel about the oncoming season.  I'm ready.  I have to admit though.  This board fought me every step of the way.  It isn't my typical aesthetic, but I'm striving to stretch my versatility and what better way to practice.  It feels warm and cozy to me.  I like warm and cozy.

On another less enjoyable note.  The house that we had put an offer in on...yeah, we didn't get it.  It was a bidding war kind of situation and although we really thought we did enough, apparently that wasn't the case.  So, I'm pretty heartbroken over it, with a little bit of pissed off on the side.  I know, I know, it just wasn't the right one, another one will come along, blah, blah, blaaaaaah.  It's just hard to think that anything better will come along, at such a fabulous price/location/etc., etc., etc.  Have I mentioned I'm heartbroken/pissed.   Very choice words are coming to mind right now, but I don't think a long slew of obscene verbal diarrhea will do anyone any good.   So with that, I will bid you a lovely, lovely day.  Full of sunshine, roses, birds, and all that is holy and good.  Hopefully some of that will float on over this-a-way, cause I need it.

Love the board, and that is devastating about the house. It can really be so heartbreaking. I seriously still get angry/sad thinking about the first house we tried to get...Persevere, my friend!

I adore that board! And I haven't seen anything like it. We put five offers on homes before we won our current one. It was so exhausting and heartbreaking. If you love it, tell your realtor to stay on it. Things could fall through with the bidder and you could be next in line. I hope you find your dream house soon!

I FEEL YOU. we've been going through the same thing this week, and it's emotionally draining. lots of exercising and wine going on (not at the same time, i assure you).

I'm so excited for fall, I just love it. I love the green you added to the mood board! Very nice. We (finally) just moved in to our home after 8 months of searching, negotiating, waiting and complaining. I hate the process but it's all worth it in the end...mostly because it's over. Another one WILL come along and hopefully you'll love it just as much. :)

Wowza! I'm in love with that green chair, those lamps..heck the entire board!!!! Great curating!

In due time...everything will work out! My husband and I were on the opposite end of the spectrum, it took us a year to sell our house. But, when we did everything worked out perfectly!!!!
