I am way behind in posting. So, right now as we are wrapping up the school year and gearing up for some fun summer pool time...I am making a promise to myself. I am always unsure of what others will think about my posts or even my writing but today another dear friend reminded me that I just have to be myself.
This weekend I actually did something I never do and I purchased a rug for our living room without showing it to my husband first. I have always asked for his approval before buying anything of significance for our house, but when I saw this rug I just new it had to come home with me. Well, I knew it had to come home with me in a truck and my husband because I could never lift it on my own. So, today we went and picked it up and I have to say it makes me so happy to see it in our living room. It makes the space seem quieter and warmer. The way that I happened upon the rug is Megan Lowden of Lowden Design Consulting was hosting a multi-family estate sale. After previewing photos on her site I knew the sale was not to be missed. Megan did an amazing job organizing and arranging the sale. I think she has a great concept, especially for people downsizing that are looking to sell furniture and various things they no longer need.
The rug was a nice unexpected surprise to my weekend. I have been looking and thinking about a "new" rug for some time but finding the right one is always a challenge. It's funny how both my 3 and 7 year old have already complimented my choice by saying the rug is "cozy and soft." I'll try not to make it a habit of buying large things for the house without a second opinion but I am rather pleased with myself that this turned out to be a good thing.
