Think pink

My overall plan with the new digs was to concentrate on making the big pieces neutral and throwing in pops of color. As in, say, light gray walls and white furnishings with an orange chevron pillow. But then I couldn’t stand the way the kitchen was looking at me anymore, so this happened.


And I’m so glad it did. From there, it was really a short hop on over to this.


And another view (please excuse the plastic in the foreground and Molly’s step-stool-y thing in the background, as well as any other extraneous stuff that makes the shot less than ideal).


So, a very pink rug has landed in our dining room and I think I can say pretty confidently that we’re all really pleased with it.* And I can also say that my overall plan is still mostly intact. Light gray walls, white and gray furniture. And pops of color. My pops of color just got a little bit bigger, that’s all.

And someday I’ll be able to replace all of those dining room chairs with these lovelies and things will be more streamlined.

*And thanks to Mags for the tip on the sale at where we scored this beauty for just over $200.

    As pretty in the picture as it was in person! (Me being the person while the rug and walls were not…just to be clear).

Sleep in safety. Sleep without stress. Sleep without worry. Things children all over the world should be able to do. But those kids who have set foot on this soil after bearing untold abuses and have asked for asylum from us—literally begged us for help, throwing themselves on our mercy—have been tossed aside and, I imagine, can’t sleep. . . . They’ve been treated not only like they’ve done something wrong (they haven’t), but treated in a way we don’t—or shouldn’t—treat any child in this country. We don’t put children in cages. We don’t make children sleep on floors. We don’t separate them from their families. In fact, when these things happen to children, we usually file criminal charges against the perpetrators. This must stop. . . . #stopthemadness #reunitefamilies #asylumseekers #choosekindness #hurryupmueller
My love. She loves to sleep on the floor. I swear: she has a bed. We have several. Couches too! But I get to see her like this every night and we both get to feel so safe . . . On the other hand, there are those who can’t feel safe at night bc of our country’s ridiculous policy. The #GOP has decided that the world’s current horrors weren’t enough that they needed to up the ante and add their own voice to the unending madness. And they did . . . Separating asylum-seeking mothers and fathers from their children. That’s the #GOPlegacy. Does it get more horrific?! People fleeing horrendous abuses, throwing themselves on our mercy and, instead of kindness, we shower them with incivility, treating them as criminals, stealing their children and tossing them in detention. Where is your soul, #GOP?! . . . #resist #impeachmentyesterday #impeachmentnow #bluewave #votethemout #noexcuse
