Today movers came to estimate the weight of the items in my home. A sad, but grateful day! Yes, the military is moving me again. This time for a new and exciting opportunity! My whole life I wanted nothing more than to be a forensics investigator. I remember the day I found my little piece of heaven. Here is a glimpse…
The house was empty and I sat on the deck for 2.5 hours in a rusty old chair listening to God’s creations around me. I took it all in. I thought…this is it! This is where I belong!
The house was built the early 1960’s by an electrician. You would be amazed by all the history in this treasure chest of a home. It still has all the original knobs and clever light installations. I fell in love with the layout and this magnificent tree built right into the deck. I can see all of the lake and the tree from my living room.
For as long as I can remember I wanted to live on the water. Not a beach or near a river…a peaceful calm body of water like this one. I thank you God for granting me this wish!
Of course I had to make it my own. I painted the living room a bright white for a pure tranquil feeling.
I added a little hutch I found from the Salvation Army for $40 as my bar and placed it in the corner of the room. I changed the knobs for a more feminine look, then added an antique bar set I found in a corner store from somewhere in WV. Cost on that bad boy…$15.
My bedroom is a green, gray, and brown mix of old and new. I found the bedroom set at a local furniture store for only $250. I added an antique set of dressers found at the Salvation Army for $150 total (not photographed). I added the orange and gray bedding for a bright bohemian feel.
Soon I leave my little peace of heaven for the next chapter in life. I am thrilled, honored, determined, and humble for all that I have! Living here has been a blessing! Buckle up! We are so looking forward to what comes next!
I chose to paint the master bath in a gray and placed black and white city photographs on the wall to remind me of my hometown (NYC).
In our INK…Cosmetics home office I added an area for reflection. I grew up Catholic and do not plan on changing my religion, but I have traveled the world and fell in love with bits and pieces of religious practices. Anything to keep me closer to all that is positive and spiritual.
I am so grateful I have been continued to be blessed! I know my Father is with me everyday and I feel God in my heart. I look forward to this new chapter!
For as long as I can remember, I wanted to be a forensics criminal investigator. The time has come and I am standing with open arms! Thank you God!
