It’s a Wonderful Life

 

This iconic scene from the great movie, It’s a Wonderful Life, probably looked a lot like us!  We had twenty people total helping move us from city to another.  Trucks strapped down with pots of rose bushes and rocking chairs.  Our children and friends all coming out to help us get into our home.  Rent?  Ha!  We finally own our own home.  The American Dream.  I appreciate it so much more than when I was younger.

Over the next few weeks I will share with you how to take a 92 year old drafty adobe home from stark, stained, rental white walls, scratched grey trim, and dark black curtains into a cozy home perfect for respite, family gatherings, and life.  Stay tuned!
