Today is the one-year anniversary of the day my husband started his new job in Seattle, Washington. Although the children and I didn’t join him here until just before Christmas, I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting on the changes we have gone through in the past year.
I’m happy to say that we are pretty well adjusted to life in our new home in a new state! We lived in Utah for 17 out of 19 years of our married life, and we were in our last home for almost 10 years…so it was a big change! But we have found Washington to be a lovely place to live (although there are a LOT more people…and traffic…here than I could wish), and we’re grateful for this new phase of our life.
That said, today seemed to be a food day to show off this little table I made over
It was just a simple little pine table I picked up at a thrift store. The lines were so simple that it needed a little embellishment to make it special.
After painting the table yellow with some diy chalk paint, I cut a stencil of the shape of Washington out with my Silhouette machine and painted it on. A little red heart marks the approximate location where we live.
This little table was purchased by a woman who intends to use it as an end-of-year teacher gift! I pretty sure it will be a one-of-a-kind offering!
