You can never go home again, but the truth is you can never leave home, so it’s alright. -Maya Angelou

I am working really, really, reeeeeeally hard to make my new carriage house a home.  And thanks to my mom, dad, sister Rachel and future brother-in-law David, I got much closer to making that a reality today.  It’s completely turned into a labor of love.  It’s a lot of hard work, but it is so rewarding to see it slowly turning into a different place.  It actually looks much bigger now that the carpet & linoleum flooring are gone.

I’ve started a Flickr album so you guys can keep track of the progress.  Click here to see the photos thus far.  I know not everyone is into home repair & renovation, so I will keep my writings about this to a minimum.  But what is relevant is the fact that I am building a new home for soul, in so many different ways.  All of the cleaning, gutting, and rebuilding is so symbolic of my life right now in general.  And while it’s tedious work, it’s also rejuvenating and healing.  Who knew I was cut out for doing home repair? 🙂
