Wow has moving to this somewhat accidental rental space been transformative!
Both the hubsters and I are completely rearranging our relationship to our things, each other’s things, and all the relationships in between.
Releasing, coming into present time… So much old sadness, anger, and grief finding legitimacy and love instead of clinging to old papers and things.
I’ve spent a lot of time shredding papers*, crying, shredding more papers, crying more…
And it is finally starting to look a little bit like a living space.
*Shredding papers may actually be the most satisfying thing in the universe. The machine eats the paper! If you haven’t tried it, do!
Check out our pictures by Erin Vaughan. They are blanket fort tree houses! Love her work. Aren’t they amazing?!
That’s all for now. In another week or so it should be truly gorgeous, but I’m really proud of how far it’s come. This space is 300 square feet smaller than our last place, plus has less storage. And we’re taking it as an opportunity to shed everything we don’t need. It feels so good!
