her old room at home / new room at home
I was at a loss for anything to post tonight.
Taylor is home for the weekend and it feels so nice. She keeps walking around saying "this is so weird. Ah, a shower with water pressure and I don't have to wear shower shoes; a refrigerator to open with snacks in it, comfy couch and a fire in the fireplace, my pets to pet. So I think she means that it's weird in a good way.
One thing that IS really weird for her is the fact that I re-did her room. I debated whether or not to do it but I kinda had this urge after I had refreshed the bathroom. She had taken many of the key elements in her room with her to college so her room looked like it was missing "her" - gone was the bright pink painted floor lamp skeleton that she bought at a garage sale and used for a hat and purse rack; gone was the pink lamp and bright pillows and there sat a bold purple comforter (purple became her favorite color when she was 16) that just wasn't fitting in with the rest of the house without her to sleep on it. SO I did a little refresh to it as well. She likes it but said it was very strange walking in to her room, after 2 months, and it being so different.
When I look back at this old photo of her room (a 14yr olds room) it makes me kinda sad but things change. She now has the things she loves in her dorm room and loves her space there - that is her home for now and she is just visiting me. weird.
The photos on the left are taken by me, Leslye, the mother. The photos on the right are taken by my daughter, Taylor – unless otherwise noted. Comments are always welcome. thanks
If you care to visit, I, Leslye, have another blog - AutumnSun where I ramble around different paths and pleasures of my own.
