“Live like a Pharaoh, sing like a sparrow anyway. Even if there is no land or love in sight.”
-The Avett Brothers, “Live and Die”
Think about it. I know I had to. Not only are those Avett Brothers talented musicians and incredibly good-looking, but they are wise, too. That’s why they are this week’s choice for Wednesday Words of Wisdom. What I take from above line from their song, “Live and Die” is this: Grab life and live it as best as you can. Until you die. No matter what comes your way.
That works for me.
It is also what propels me to create a home that provides that lift, that anchor that renews my spirit and just makes my life better. Imagine if we all took care of our space like our lives depended on it. I think there just might be many more happier people in the world.
Do you remember that chandelier I found at ReStore Habitat for Humanity a couple of posts ago?
Here it is in the Cary ReStore location, a diamond in the rough.
Well, I hung it up in the master bedroom at last! Miracles do happen.
Still need to finish painting the rest of the trim, but here’s what the space looked before I replaced this not-so-lovely and kind-of-boring light fixture (aka nipple light).
I still need to finish painting, but here it is!
This makes my heart shine.
The house is always a work in progress. The work is in finding the things that bring you joy and eliminating the stuff that doesn’t.
And now, without further ado, I bring you The Avett Brothers!
Oh and Avett Brothers, in case you see this…
