Don't just live in the world

In My Place

May 21st, 2013 | Posted by Amy Boughner in Parenting | Personal

It’s been just over a year now since we moved into our own house. (And since I left my jobs to take on contracts and stay home with our daughter). We’ve settled in, we’ve made changes, and finally this week we painted two more rooms – the master bath and the living room – bright beautiful colours that are mine.

I am so happy with the glorious yellow that I chose for the bathroom. One of my favourite things about this house is the tub in the master bath. The tub is large and allows me to sink right in and soak and read and relax. It also happens to have a window directly above it. There is a blind on the window but the light seeps through, and taking a bath at dusk is satisfying to my soul.

The colour – this orangey yellow called Calgary Sunset on the chip – fits perfectly with my sunset baths.

Our living room is now a beautiful bright blue that reminds me of the sunny beach that matches the picture above the mantel.


My free and wild little girl.

When we found the listing for this house it seemed too good to be true. When the open house fell on my birthday and the house lived up to expectations it felt like it was meant to be. Within a week we were signing all the papers. Now it’s been a year.

A first of 30.

I hope.
