When I got my new job, I remember getting my hair cut at my little hometown Aveda salon. When I told my stylist where we were moving, she said, "I LOVE old farm houses. They have so much character." I sat there, nodded and thought, "yeah...character...sure. But it's in the country."
Today, I totally understand what she was talking about.
Take this photo for example:
You may be looking at this and thinking...."why are you showing us a photo of a hardwood floor?"
It's not the floor.
Nor is it a wall.
It's the ceiling of our living room.
(pardon the dust....we're still hanging the trim...)
Yes! The ceiling of our living room is made of real cedar planks. And I have to tell you, there are days that I sit on the couch and just find myself looking up at the ceiling and thinking, "that's just cool..."
Shhhh....don't tell the Big Guy....but I think I may actually like it here.
I guarantee you I'll change my tune when summer hits (NO A/C....sigh)
